For the next 45 minutes this gathering place will serve as "Congregation Chambrel," where aweekly Shabbat service hosted by the Jewish Pavilion provides Jewish seniors with a sense of community, as well as a place for prayer~ Although the average Pavilion "congre- gant" is well over 85 years old. Chambrel seniors are active and vital members of the Jewish community. Meet Berny Raft, Chambrel resident and Jewish Pavilion senior. Although Berny is re- covering from a series of recent surgeries, his commitment to the Jewish dommunity is in robust health. At 86, Berny is a regular at Pavilion services and is current president of Congre- gation Ohev Shalom's senior group. Berny shares that as a young man he attended, not one, but two Yeshivas in the New York/New Jersey area. Today, I~erny still pulls a double shift, attending a Friday Pavilion Shabbat service, and a Saturday one at Ohev. "My late wife. Eleanor. was at Regent's Park with just one or two Jewish seniors." says Bernie, "and it was not easy to fill up a service. Chambrel has a Jewish population of about 40 percent. A weekly service is something the residents want." Chambrel resident and for- mer Sunday school teacher, HelenTishman, attendedweek- ly Shabbat services, as well as religious school for more years than she can count. In fact, Tishman, a dedicated Jewish educator, was the first certified religious school teacher in the state of Florida in the 1950s. When Helen began to have difficultywalking, she was con- cerned that a lifetime of Jewish continui~ would be disrupted. "Unfortunately, because of this (an electric scooter) it is diffi- cult to attend services outside of Chambrel," says Helen. "Thanks to the Pavilion I can still attend weekly services and partake in Jewish learning." At 92, Helen doesn't just attend services. Tishman is the Pavilion's most senior vol- unteer. Avoid Helen's path. as Hudson Cosgrove-Naftel, left, Ruth Naftel and Sylvia Lightner celebrate Shabbat together.
