HERITAGE FLORIDA JEWISH NEWS, SEPTEMBER 07, 2012 PAGE 11.a appy The Jewish Pavilion is not a place, but rather a promise to our elders, that they will not be abandoned by the commUnity in their old age. The Pavilion ensures that seniors, in long term care, are regularly visited and enjoy holiday celebra- tions, intergenerational ac- tivities, musicales, ice cream socials and more. Pavilion staffandvolunteers visit more than a thousand seniors in 54 independent, assisted and skilled nursing facilities in greater Orlando. Staff and volunteers share their hearts with the elderly and infirmed. We like to say thatwe bring the Floridasunshine indoors. See- ing smiles on the faces of our elders is what our non-profit is all about. Across the nation. Jewish holidays are ignored in secu- lar long term care facilities. We are so proud of what the Pavilion does for its elders'in Orlando. We have planned over 40 R0sh Hashanah ser- vices. Residents of all faiths will enjoy apples and honey for the New Year along with raison challah, honey cake and more. Listening to the shofar brings tears of joy. In a few days, Jews around the world will celebrate Rosh Hashanah, the Jewish New Year. This is not the same type of celebration revelers enjoy on the eve of Jan. t but a time when we review our deeds from the past year with the hope of improving ourselves and our actions in the year to come. Rosh Hashanah serves as an annual reminder that we must constantly work at becoming, better people throughout the year. The traditional Rosh Ha- shanah greeting, "L'shana Tova Tikatevu - may you be inscribed in the Book of Life." speaks to our profound desire to be ethical and moral human beings, to be better than in the past year. Rosh Hashanah helps us remember that those of us who are fortunate have the responsibility to make the world a better place for those who struggle. The message of Rosh Ha- shanah rings true today as As Rosh Hashanah ap- proaches and we move into 5773. so begins the 2012- 2013 school year at Jewish Academy. This year we are thrilled to welcome Dr. Ella Levy as Director of Hebrew and Jewish Studies. Her experience as an educator and administrator in Jew- ish community day schools brings a new dimension to our Hebrew/Judaic depart- ment. A wonderful component of our curriculum is the infusion of Jewish values and customs as we celebrate the Jewish holidays. For ex- ample, with the upcoming Tashlich, students at each grade level will learn about the ritual aspects as they find those behaviors for which to say, "I'm sorry". This is an opportunity for our students to self reflect and choose val- ues. which will lead them in life, Educating our children in a Jewish environment in- tegrates morals, ethics, and ays from the Pavilion Carol Feuerman Chefs in facilities across town have been sent High Holiday menus and recipes so that residents can partake in their traditions.

Today, it is more important than ever to believe in the power of compassion to repair our world; a tradition which is at the core of Jewish Family Services' mission. At a time when our friends and neighbors may be strug- gling to put food on their tables and keep roofs over their heads, it is up to every one of us to do what we can to help them. Over the last year, JFS has helped thousands of individuals and families in Central Florida get back on their feet; however, still more of our neighbors need our help. During the high holidays, when we look at ourselves and look t'o how we can improve the world, I urge you to join J FS in our efforts.

We believe the Jewish leaders of the future are nurtured, inspired, and thrive here at JAO. Teaching our young how to be good citizens, criti- cal thinkers and problem solvers should go lland in hand with "raising up" our Jewish children. At Jewish day schools, when students learn the Hebrew language and vocabulary, they are naturally exposed to Jew- ish values and concepts. As they participate in Kabbalat Shabbat, they learn a sense of community, prayer and the joy of Jewish music. The foundation that we build for the future of Ju- daisrh must be strong, so we can create a timeless legacy for all generations to come. We must stand together as a community to support this worthwhile and very large endeavor. A Jewish day school is one of the most valuable assets in a Jewish community Lynne Shefsky and it takes the entire community to keep it vi- able and floUrishing. We need everyone's support to continue this very neces- sary link from our past to our future.
