HERITAGE FLORIDA JEWISH NEWS, JULY 28, 2017 PAGE 9A By Gloria Yousha--Call 407-657-9405 or The surge... I recently heard from the Jewish Telegraphic Agency about the surge in anti-Semitism. The subject was addressed in an article written by DANIEL ELBAUM and MARC D. STERN. I pass it along (in part) to you: "Almost daily accounts of vandalized cemeteries, spray- painted swastikas and bomb threats to JCCs and other Jewish agencies have naturally evoked considerable alarm. Clearly, we must never reconcile ourselves to an America where this is considered normal. Yetwe must not succumb to the opposite tendency to see these recent incidents through a 2,000-year-old lens and draw comparisons to darker days, when Jews felt powerless and alone in the fight against anti-Semitism. There is no nation (other than Israel, of course) that has been more hospitable and welcoming to Jews than the United States. Indeed, there has been no generation of Jews in our people's history more ingrained into the fabric of the nation in which it lived. A recent Pew Research Center report found that Jews are (among) the most admired religious groups in the country, and it will take far more than the incidents of the last few months to alter that fact." (There are things that can be done. Perhaps the White House should convene a conference on violent extremism and hate crimes. I got that idea from the JTA letter as well.) My hometown ... Brooklyn, USA ... About a month or two ago, I received a pamphlet in the mail titled "Another Time, Another Place: A neighborhood remembered." It was written by GERALD CHATANOW and BERNARD SCHWARTZ. ( I personally knew an actor named Bernard Schwartz who went by the professional name Tony Curtis, but this was not the same man!) The pamphlet said: "The Brownsville/East New York neighborhood of the 1930s, 1940s and 1950s is now but an almost faded memory, a 'time warp' as it were. Today it is a neighborhood that has been eviscerated and exists only as a geographic locale. Through the collective memories of the famous and the not so famous, the writers have elicited and chronicled a treasure trove of anecdotes and remembrances that bring back to life a once vibrant and exhilarating neighborhood. It is available at Xlibris. Phone 1-888-795-4274." (I have memories of my beloved Brooklyn neighborhood too. I used to sit on the corner milk box outside of the corner candy store with friends; the school yard at P.S.233; Tilden H. S.; snacks like polly seeds, Hooten Chocolate bars, egg creams, frappes, etc. and most of all, I have memories of my youth!) Speaking of memories... After moving down to Central Florida about 53 years ago (I was in diapers and if you believe that I have a bridge to sell you) I remember making friends with some very special people who I still bump into here and there. One of the most special is LINDA MOGUL, a wonderful gal I have always loved even though we don't see much of each other, except, as I said, I bump into here and there. I first met Linda when she was a toddler. The daughter of my friends, RUTH and MAX MOGUL, I recall sitting in their home and along came this adorable little girl trying to walk in her daddy's shoes! She was (and still is) the sweetest, most loving girl in the world as far as I'm concerned. I had the pleasure of bump- ing into her again just a few days ago at the Bagel King restaurant on Semoran Blvd. (I always get a feeling of joy when I see Linda!) Shout-out... Speaking of Bagel King, they have awaitress therewho is just the best! Her name is COLLEEN BELEIN. She is a pretty gal with a great sense of humor and terrific skills at her job! I was depressed when I sat down but laughing and Linda Mogul in great spirits when I got up! Thanks, Colleen. The JCC 39er's Cinema Sundays... On Sunday, July 30th at 2 p.m. in the Senior Lounge, avery funny movie will be featured. "The Boss" starring MELISSA McCARTHY is on the bill. (Feel like laughing? I guarantee you will!) JCC 39er's "Meet & Mingle Mondays... The next meeting of the JCC 39er's will be very special, indeed! It takes place on Monday, July 31st, in the Senior Lounge at 12:30 p.m. Both lunch and entertainment will be provided by Savannah Court. (I repeat.., this is very special indeed!) Melissa McCarthy One for the road... One morning, as Moshe gets off the bus to go to work, he can't help but notice that the woman who got off the bus in front of him has her right breast hanging outside her blouse. He is always one to help people and so is not embarrassed to go over to her and say, "Excuse me madam, but did you know that your right breast is showing?" The lady takes one look down at her breast, then shrieks on top of her voice, "Oy vay, I've left my baby on the bus." EWISH NEWS can be purchased at the following locations: ORANGE COUNTY JCC, 851 N.

And people are putting avocados in everything lately: brownies, salad dressing, even ice cream. After all, avocados are healthy, full of good fat, delicious and satisfying. I also love avocados, but I am a purist about eating them-- sliced or smashed simply with just a few seasonings with some chips, or on the side of a dish like my vegetarian Mexican lasa- gna. These Israeli-inspired toasts are a little trendy, healthful and super fun--plus they use some classic Israeli flavors like tahini and harissa. If you don't like soft- or hard-boiled eggs, you can also top your toast with a fried egg. Mix and match your combinations. These are satisfying and perfect for summer since they require minimal cooking. I would serve one of these for a hearty breakfast or light lunch. Ingredients: Fresh sourdough or whole grain bread 2 ripe avocados 1-2 eggs harissa feta cheese juice and zest of one lemon 1-2 fresh radishes fresh parsley and cilantro 1/3 cup chickpeas (shells removed) tahini salt and pepper to taste dried cumin Directions: To make the chickpea smashed toast: Combine 1/2 avocado with 1/3 cup canned chickpeas, shells removed. If you didn't remove all the shells, they will naturally come off as you smash the chickpeas and avocado together. Add pinch of salt and 1/4 teaspoon cumin. Toast bread lightly Spread chickpea-avocado mixture evenly on top of toast. Drizzle with tahini to your taste, a pinch of sea salt and fresh parsley. To make the harissa and egg toast: Smash 1/2 avocado with a pinch of salt and 1/2 teaspoon lemon juice. Toast breadlightly. Spread smashed avocado evenly on top of toast.: Drizzle or spread around 2 teaspoons prepared harissa on top. Top with slices of soft- or hard-boiled egg, or a single fried egg, a pinch of sea salt and fresh parsley. To make the feta and radish toast: Smash 1/2 avocado with pinch of salt and 1/2 teaspoon lemon juice. Toast bread lightly. Spread smashed avocado evenly on bread. Top with thin slices of radishes, feta cheese to your taste and 1/2 teaspoon fresh lemon zest. Shannon Sarna is the editor of The Nosher.
