It's a highly anticipated meal: "We've already had quite a few of our Jewish residents RSVP and ask if they can bring their families," said Baptista in August. Walter Goldstein, the Pavilion's program direc- tor for south Orlando, will be on hand to conduct the program and has high praise for Baptista and the Sonata West staff, who he said are really responsive and work hard to make his programs, including his monthly Shab- bat programs, a great success. "I enjoy doing this for the residents, and what I really like about when Walter comes in is that he includes everyone, not just our Jewish residents," said Baptista. "It makes it fun for everyone." Brookdale Aitamonte's ac- tivities director, Rich Besser, is Jewish, and each year he puts a great deal of effort into making the High Holidays special. "He gets one of his residents to decorate a gor- geous table," noted Nancy Ludin, the Pavilion's executive director. "In the past, he's had a resident who was a profes- sional decorator. They go shopping together and buy things to make it special. It's a really big production." Besser brings in roasted chicken from Publix and has the kitchen staff make matzoh ball soup. Each year, Jewish Pavilion volunteers and staff The Jewish Pavilion works with senior living facilities to bring Jewish residents a festive holiday table with traditional dishes such as matzoh ball soup. members supplement thisthemselves provide their own holiday banquet with home- family recipes for the chefs to made specialties from their prepare.

We saw continued growth in our early childhood, sum- mer camp and senior adult programs, and increased membership, event rentals and community reach. High- lights include: Reaching new highs in early childhood enrollment (over 200 children) and summer camp enrollment (over 400 children). We also opened our new state-of- the-art Noah's Ark Infant Room. Programmatic partner- ships with the Orlando Reper- tory Theatre, Orlando Science Center, Orlando City Soccer and Orlando Magic. The celebration of Israel's Eric Lightman 70th anniversary at Lake Eola Park, in partnership with The Roth Family JCC, made pos- sible by the Jewish Federation of Greater Orlando. Creative programming for our senior adult group, including a visit to the 1892 World's Fair in Chicago, a virtual cruise on the Mediter- ranean and an "April in Paris" tea party. While we take time during the holidays to reflect on the past year we also begin to look forward to the com- ing one. Rosh Hashanah is a time for both individual and organizational renewal.
