PAGE 8 HERITAGE FLORIDA JEWISH NEWS, APRIL Wishing You A Happy Passover From Mardi, Ron, Kimberly & Ben Shader b- "Wishing you a Happy and Healthy Passover" Bernard A. Kahn, D.D.S. GENERAL DENTISTRY 926 N. Maitland Avenue Maitland, FL 32751 (407) DIRECTLY ACROSS FROM THE JEWISH COMMUNITY CENTER Shown here (l-r): Row 1: DOUG RAMSAY, director of the Cantorial Corps; Row 2:PETER GORDON, PAUL STENZLER, BRUCE PASTER (members of"Peter, Paul and Bruce") and Row 3: BEN GORDON, MICHAEL STENZLER, JEREMY PASTER (members of"Havok'). The Southwest Orlando Jewish Congregation- Temple Ohalei Rivka brought down the house on Saturday night, March 29, with their Second Annual Battle of the Bands. This fundraiser for the TALLAHASSEE--Florida Agriculture and Consumer Services Commissioner Charles H. Bronson today urged consumers to be wary of any war-related scams. While no complaints have yet to be received, Bronson noted that in past terrorist or military conflicts, including in the aftermath of the Sept. 11 attacks on the United States and in the ensuing war in Af- ghanistan, state residents have been approached by bogus charities and bombarded with offers of gas masks, water pu- rification systems and other products that callers or Internet merchants claim of- fer protection in the event hostilities break out in the United States. "Our experience, unfortu- nately, is that some people will use war or threats of terror- ism to exploit the generosity or fear of Americans and en- rich themselves in the pro- cess," Bronson said. "We're urging FIoridians to use com- mon sense and think about what they are doing before they part with their money under these circumstances." In the case of charities claim- ing to be collecting money on behalf of victims or veterans' families, Bronson suggested that residents call his SOJC Cantorial Corps, pits two bands "Havok," and the uniquely-named "Peter, Paul and Bruce," in a con- cert contest against each other. The twist is that Havok is made up of three teenage boys, Ben Gordon, Michael Stenzler and Bruce Paster, while Peter, Paul and Bruce is made up of their fathers. Havok, the teenage group, is not just another high school band. They have almost finished cutting their first demo, and hope to tour this summer. All three members of Havok are charter members of the Cantorial Corps, and be- came friends while attend- ing SOJC's Religious School. This is the second year of the Battle of the Bands, and itwas a rousing success. Pe- ter, Paul and Bruce per- formed "oldies" ranging from the Monkees to Peter, Paul and Mary, while Havok played more modern music, including original composi- tions by the group. The money raised is to support the SOJC Cantorial Corps, a youth group dedicated to keeping the students in- volved in services after their b'nai mitzvah. The Cantorial brainchild of Cantor Corps, Director Ramsay, goes on a tri summer. Every child is pected to serve as Tzibbur (prayer leader) Ba'al Koreh (Torah several times during year. Additionally, they earn a certain numberq tikkun olam (social points, in order to quail for the trip.
