HERITAGE FLORIDA JEWISH NEWS, AUGUST 23, 2013 . well First person By David & Harriet Moldau We grew up in the Crown Heights section of Brooklyn, N.Y. surrounded by Orthodox Jews, butwe were never part of that community. We were all Jews but somehow it seemed that we each lived in our own little world. When Rabbi Yanky Majesky asked us to join him and his wife, Chanshy, to the National Jewish Retreatwe did not know what to expect. We have just returned from the Retreat in the Washing- ton, DC area, and itwas five of the most wonderful days. We were warmly welcomed into the Chabad community, and were made to feel very much part of it. We were given food in abundance for our minds, our bodies and our souls. At the Retreat, the Orlando Jewish community was well represented, in addition to- the rabbi and his wife, Azita & Farzin Yashar, and Akiva Anderson were there as well and we formed our own small community among the 900 Jews who came from all walks of life and many Jewish communities from around the country and the world. In addition there were 150 spirited students called Sinai Scholars who came from colleges around the country. Rabbi Chaim & Rivkie Lipskier led 15 students from UCF. Each day, from morning until evening, there were wonderful classes, followed by excellent entertainment after dinner. We were treated to discus- sions of relevant legal issues, such as public placement of menorahs, which lawyers have argued before the Supreme Court; also how the Talmud addresses modern dilemmas in the fields of health, medi- cine, and medical ethics; and the Jewish view of the afterlife. Itwas difficult to choose Which of the four to six sessions that were scheduled in each time slot to attend, because they all looked so interesting, and indeed, they were. The time was brilliantly orchestrated so lectures started and ended on time, while keeping our creative, spiritual and intel- lectual juices flowing. We were entertained one evening by world-renowned singer Dudu Fisher (he played Jean Valjean in Les Miserables GLORIA HAYMAN Gloria Hayman of Long- wood, passed away peacefully on Aug. 9, 2013 after a long illness. She was 82 years old. She faced her condition with courage and dignity and even at the end she captured people with her smile. Mrs. Hayman was born in Toronto, Ontario on May 30, 1931, to_ the late Helen and Samuel Wise. She had one sister, Elaine Kravetsky, who is deceased. She had been married for 60 years to Julius Hayman, who was continually at her side. The Haymans initially settled in Detroit but later lived in Cherry Hill, N.J.; Framingham, Mass.; Gaith- ersburg, Md.; Vincentown, N.J.; and finally Longwood, Fla., where they have lived for 20 years. Mrs. Hayman regarded each area as a place to explore and an opportunity to meet new folks. She made friends easily because she loved people and was very active in the Hadassah. Mrs. Hayman is survived by her husband, Julius; two sons Jeffrey and Steven Hayman; and two grandchildren. Donations in the memory of Gloria Hayman may be made to the Alzheimer's Associa- tion, Gloria will always be re- membered. EUGENE GOODMAN Eugene Goodman of Lake Mary, passed away on Mon- day, Aug. 12. He was 83 years old. Mr. Goodman, a lifelong resident of Cleveland, Ohio, relocated to the Orlando area in 2010. He was born Sept. 20, 1929, and was the son of the late Albert Schultz and Caroline (Weisz) Schultz. Mr. Goodman worked i'n finance and was an accountant. He was a veteran:of the Korean War, serving in the U.S. Army. He was married to the late Edith Appel, who passed away in 1990. Mr. Goodman was the consummate volunteer, beginning in high school and continuing throughout his life. In 2005, he was honored with the Volunteer of the Year Sudoku (see page 19 for solution) SUDOKU Answers from 08/16/2013 m B AI BI A! S A H A I R A m L B T E R A.l . .--. S .....

We celebrated a moving Havdallah service held in the beautiful outdoors. The high- light was the release into the clear night sky of 50 balloons, each one bearing a flaming candle. They were launched at a rate of about one every 20-30 seconds, and soared into the heavens as we sang the Havdallah blessings; with musical accompanimenL The whole service was brilliantly conceived and executed. It was original, awesome and memorable. The Sinai scholars had their own activities, which some- times coincided with those of the larger group and some- times they were separate. They went to the Holocaust Museum one afternoon and their guide was a survivor, a man in his late eighties. The man told the students that he turned 13 during the war and therefore never had a bar mitzvah. The students asked him if he would like to put on Tefilin for the first time in his life. He agreed. They prayed together and itwas a beautiful and unique experience. "It sent shivers through my entire body when I saw him place the straps of the Tefilin over his number tat- tooed into his arm" said .Emilia Halikman from Or- lando. The students were so moved by his story that they invited him to share dinner with all of us. When he was introduced that evening, the students danced around him singing "Am Yisrael Chai" and" we all applauded. We can only imagine how he felt at seeing this thriving, enthusiastic young community, celebrating being Jewish, in contrast to his Holocaust experience. The look on his face spoke volumes. The Jewish Retreat has been held for the past eight years, growing from "200 attendees to the 900 this year. It was the first time we went, but it certainly will not be our last. We hope you will consider joining us next Aug. 6-10 at a location yet to be determined, forwhatyouwill definitely find to be a meaningful vacation with a soul.
