She has studied with Cantor Moshe Friedler in Tampa and is now studying with Hazzan Laurie Rimland-Bonn, Direc- tor of Education & Youth at Temple Israel. Her goal is to become a Hazzan in the Can- tors' Assembly. Meitin is married to Samuel Meitin. They reside in Long- wood. DEBBIE MEITIN said Rabbi Dan Wolpe, SOJC's spiritual leader, "This is to re- member those who have fallen and pray for their survivors." Noting that on that night, Jewish communities around the world will be praying the Selichot service that begins the High Holiday season, Wolpe commented, "We feel that it was appropriate both as Jews and Americans to re- member all those who have fallen." Cantor Doug Ramsay, a Navy veteran, agreed. "We must acknowledge that it is not only the soldiers who are affected. It is not only the victims of terror that are af- fected. We are all part of this struggle." The Southwest Orlando Jewish Congregation-Tem- ple Ohalei Rivka is located at 11200 S. Apopka Vineland Rd. in Orlando. Saturday services begin at 9:30 AM.
