HERITAGE FLORIDA JEWISH NEWS, APRIL,12, 2013 00tginy eu t t)ie Loss of Independence program set for April 14 The Central Florida com- munity is invited to par- ticipate in the program, Aging and the Loss of Independence: Adult Children and Their Aging Parents to be held at 10:30 a.m. Sunday, April 14 at Congregation Ohev Shalom, 613 Concourse Parkway S., Maitland. The program is co-sponsored by Congrega- tion Ohev Shalom Men's Club, Jewish Famiiy Services of Greater Orlando and Kinneret Council on Aging. More than ever before, baby boomers are confronted with the care of their aging parents. The purpose of the program is to help adult children of aging parents by giving them the tools to best care for their parents. What care is avail- able in Central Florida, how to access that care, loss of inde- pendence, housing and how to have a conversation with your parents are some of the issues that will be discussed at the program. A panel discussion followed by a period of questions will be guided by JFS executive direc- tor Eric Geboff. Panelists in- clude: Randall Hunt, president and CEO, Senior Resource Alliance; Susan Weissmann, clinical director, Jewish Family Services of Greater Orlando; and Leslie Collin, executive ad- ministrator, Kinneret Council on Aging. There is no charge for the program, however, donations to offset the cost of the pro- gram are welcome at the door. For more information con- tact Geboff at 407-644-7593. Illuminating 00:he biblical text By Rabbi Rachel Esserman The (Vestal, N.Y.) Reporter According to the dictionary, the word illuminate means "to enlighten someone intellectu- ally or spiritually." This can be done in a variety of ways. For example, Debra Band uses illustrations (which she calls illuminations) to offer com- mentary and insights into the biblical text. In her third book, "Arise! Arise! Deborah, Ruth and Hannah" (Honeybee in the Garden), Band focuses on three biblical stories featuring women as main characters. Although additional literary commentary is offered by Arnold J. Band, her father- in-law, a professor of Hebrew and comparative literature at UCLA, the real stars of the book are Band's illuminations, which are beautiful enough to stand on their own. Band chose to illuminate these three selections because they tell "stories of women who stood up at crucial mo- ments to take actions that not only preserved the nascent nation of Israel but also shaped its character." Although all take place during the same period of Israelite history, they are in different biblical books. The story of Deborah is found in the book of Judges and the tale of Hannah in I Samuel, both of which are in Nevi'im (Prophets). The story Ruth is in the Book of Ruth, which, in the Hebrew Bible, is placed in the final sectibn, Ketuvim (Writings). "Arise! Arise!" really tells l:he stories of five women: Ruth, Naomi, Hannah, Debo- rah and Jael. The accounts of three women--Ruth, Naomi and Hannah--focus on their domestic lives, specifically marriage and children. The remaining two women offer a more heroic mode: Deborah leads the israelites into battle, while Jael kills Sisera, the military leader of the Canaanites, after offering him refuge and hospitality. Band explores the different roles they played in her il- luminations. Band refers to her illumina- tions as visual midrash, seeing them as a continuation of the verbal commentary offered in rabbinical sources. Not only are the works filled with imagery drawn from the time period in which the stories oc- cur (the 11th or 12th centuries B.C.E.), they offer interpreta- tions of the text based on a variety of archeological and textural sources. Band's com- mentary explains the symbols used in her illuminations, but it's possible to enjoy the artwork by itself. My favorite illumination combine drawing and text (in Hebrew and English) together throughout the page; Some drawings appear without text while other sections focus on the story, but even these con- tain designs that highlight the meaning of the text. Readers may find themselves turn- ing pages to enjoy the book visually before focusing on the stories. Band has once again done an excellent job using visual arts to illuminate the emo- tions and events found in the biblical text. Her book would make an excellent bat mitzvah or wedding present, although its appeal is not limited to women. Anyone interested in the emerging field of visua4 midrash will want to explore "Arise! Arise![' OB -UARIES FLORENCE ALTCHILER Florence Altchiler of Miami died on Monday, April 1, 2013. She was 89 years old.
