Q,J~t,~ 1620 MAYFLOWER COURT I WINTER PARK, FL 32792 First Holiday greetings from the Jewish Pavilion Nancy Ludin, CEO Picture a pretty welcome table in the lobby with Jewish calendars, apples and honey. Imagine a front desk clerk wishing all Jewish residents and their family members a happy New Year. Think about a holiday menu with challah, noodle pudding, tzimmes and apple cake. While these things were once unimaginable in Orlando, they are occurring today in over 70 elder-care communities thanks to the Jewish Pavilion. Seniors who are no longer able to travel to shui can celebrate the High Holidays with their friends Faye Novick, Board chair in their buildings. Elders, like Sylvia Cohen, who just moved to senior living, will hear the shofar for the first time in many years. The Jewish Pavilion steps in as a "mobile community center on wheels." We have been bringing community, culture and companionship to the doorsteps of senior living communities since 2001, serving as a resource that provides room visits, festive holiday celebrations, intergenerational and memo- rial programs to 500 Jewish residents in more than 70 facilities for your mom's and dad's in long-term care. We also offer Jewish cultural edu- cation to their staff through our training program. The Jewish Pavilion promotes inclusion as loneliness knows no cultural borders, and thou- sands of seniors of all faiths attend and are welcomed into our programs each year. www. Our Senior Help Desk has assisted thousands of callers navigate their way through the daunting senior maze, alleviating caregiver stress while giving advice on all types of elder issues, www. Please join us for our 18th (Chai) anniversary at our gala this year on Sunday, Oct. 28 at the Hilton in Altamonte Springs. We will be honoring Jason Mendelsohn and Paul Stenzler and celebrating all that has happened over the past 18 years to enhance the lives of our elders and their families. The Jewish Pavilion staff and volunteers wishes ev- eryone a happy and healthy New Year! Faye Novick, Board chair, and Nancy Ludin, CEO new year e Shalom, friends, On behalf of the staff and Board of Directors of the Jewish Federation of Greater Orlando, I wish you a sweet New Year 5779! Just over a month ago, I was elected president of the Federation, and during our annual meeting I discussed our strategic plan to refine and modernize Orlando's Federation model to better serve the modern local Jewish community. As we embark on a promis- ing new year, it is apropos to reaffirm the principles that will fuel our progress in the months ahead. The Federation mission is built on four core objectives that we strive to achieve every day on your behalf: Advocat- ing, Connecting, Educating and Supporting. It is our goal that every Federation initia- tive fulfill at least one--and, ideally, all four--of these objectives. One such example is the recently announced com- munity demographic study and needs assessment. The Federation, working in col- laboration with The Roth Family JCC, is in the process of securing the funding to launch this comprehensive study, the first in a quarter- THE MAYFLOWER Winter Park's Distinctive Retirement Community I407.672.1620 ITHEMAYFLOWER.COM 88141 PRAD FHJN 9/2017 Brad Jacobs century. The project will be funded exclusively by donors who are enthusiastic about vi- sion planning and our future, and the results will be shared with all of our synagogues and Jewish organizations so that we all are attuned to the needs of our modern Jewish community. The Federation is proud to be a catalyst for this initiative, which will benefit all Jews in Central Florida for decades to come. Our goal is for every mem- ber of our community to have the ability to participate in Jewish experiences, regard- less of affiliation, generation or economic status. We can achieve that goal if we all approach the new year, and every new day, with a collec- tive commitment to stand unified, confident and strong in support of the Jewishvalues we share. As we enter 5779, let us pledge to do all we can to nurture and celebrate Jewish life. I invite you to join the Federation on its mission to build and sustain a bright future for Jews in Central Florida, in Israel and around the world. L'Shana tova umetukah, Brad Jacobs, president
