HERITAGE FLORIDA JEWISH NEWS, JUNE 14, 2019 PAGE 9A By Gloria Yousha--Call 407-657-9405 Today, June 14th is my birthday (Do NOT ask the year!). When I was little, my mother said that people were flying their American flags in honor of my birthday. I believed her! 'Anti-Semitism is no longer the extreme 'It is now mainstream!' "This frightening thought comes from World Jewish Congress CEO and Executive Vice President ROBERT SINGER when he recently addressed the Conference on CombatingAnti-Semitism in the OSCE Region in Bratislava, Slovakia, which brought together political leaders, government representatives and stakeholders in academia, civil society organizations and the media. Singer noted the concerning survey released late last year by the European Union's Agency for Fundamental Rights that indicated a high sentiment among Jews of feeling targeted by hate, noting that 'extremists on both the far-left and the far- right, anti-Semites and other lowlifes find common ground when it comes to hatred of Jews. On the far-right, extremist parties have entered the main- stream, exploiting and manipulating Holocaust memory and glorifying Nazis as part of the nationalist agenda, denying their own anti-Semitism by claiming to be pro-Israel. On the far-left, disagreement with Israeli government policies has morphed into a disturbing anti-Zionism that seeks to deny the Jewish people the right to a state of their own, and to delegitimize Israel's very existence. Anti-Semitism is no longer the extreme, as we stated before, but the mainstream. Singer added that anti-Semites have found the Internet to be an effective way of spreading their hate to an unimaginable number of people but noted that this serious threat pales in comparison to the threat Jewish communities around the world face to their physical security in Bulgaria, Belgium, Denmark and even the United States, to name just a few recent examples. 'We must fined new ways to reach young people, what- ever their nationality or religion, so they learn the lessons of history's greatest tragedy,' Singer said, pointing to further statistics released last month by the Holocaust Memorial Day Trust that found that 1 in 20 Britons do not believe that the Holocaust happened and 12 percent think the scale of the genocide was inflated. Initiatives like the WJC #WeRemember campaign, which has reached more than 1 billion people in more than 100 countries with the message of preserving Holocaust memory since it began in 2017, are imperative, Using social media, we have fostered a community of people who have a common goal, namely, to stand up to hate."

Shout-Out So far, as a vocalist I have recorded CDs. The musicians I worked with through the years were the finest (both here in town and also in Brazil.) Because they were, I trusted them when they told me about the finest place in town when it comes to many specialties, including restoration of numerous audio formats including record albums, reel to reel, 8 tracks, cassettes and digital files to CD. They all suggested the same place for the finest work Network Sound and Video, Inc. on Ronald Reagan Blvd, Longwood. Rhonda and Vito Fera.
