Maitland FL 32751 4o7.628.o555 HOLOCAUST MEMORIAL RESOURCE & EDUCATION CENTER OF FLORIDA Dear Friends, Exactly 40 years ago, on Rosh Hashanah, Jewish fami- lies across the country and around the world gathered around their dinner tables, dipping apples into honey, to usher in the new year of 5733. That same year was a mon- umental one for the current and future Jewish families of Orlando, as 5733 was the year we opened the doors of our Jewish Community Center. It's incredible to reflect upon how far we've come in 40 years. What started out in Maitland as a tiny preschool and summer camp in a small building surrounded by emp- ty land that once housed an orange grove has blossomed in toa tremendous communi- ty hub- times two-with the addition of our full-service facility on the Jack & Lee Rosen Southwest Orlando Campus in 2009. Our entire community Should be proud of the impact we've had on the thousands of members of oflr community during these past four decades, im- buing children with a sense of Jewish values, connecting families with other families, and boosting the physical and emotionai wellness of all of David Wayne those we serve. And, in an effort to reju- venate the facilities at the Roth JCC on the Maitland Campus, money is currently being raised throughout the community as part of the Roth JCC Renovation Project. Chaired by Daniel Coultoff and Dr. Andrew Kleiman, the goal of this project to improve the aesthetics and function- ality of the Roth JCC, enhance the overall experience for the members, and attract more participation. Many of the renovations - swimming pool complex, outdoor basketball and tennis courts - we're completed this summer and the preschool playground and Scott Richman auditorium dividers will be completed in the fall. Our board of directors and professional staff continues to work hard in creating enjoyable experiences and life-long memories through our nationally accredited and award-winning programs and events, and are committed to strengthening and sustain- ing our Jewish community. On behalf of the JCC of Greater Orlando, we wish you and your family a very happy, healthy, and prosper- ous 5773.
