HERITAGE FLORIDA JEWISH NEWS, SEPTEMBER 8, 2017 PAGE 9A By Gloria Yousha--Call 407-657-9405 or gloriayousha@gmail.com Thomas Jefferson decades ago. And Israel's Ben-Gurion University (BGU), it Today we are witnessing unprecedented advances in science and technology taking place at an almost unimagi- nable pace. BGU researcher Dr. ROI GAZIT is working to unlock the secrets of stem cells that reside in the bone marrow, developing potential therapies for blood diseases currently deemed untreatable, and new treatments for blood cancer. As a world-renowned expert in this very specialized field who had his choice of places to conduct his research, Dr. Gazit chose BGU. (How did this happen, you may ask?) A team of BGU scientists were aware of his ground- breaking work while he was on Something to think about... I read this on Facebook. It was posted by our own ALAN ROCK: This was a line from the mouth of Thomas Jefferson: "When the speech con- demns a free press, you are hearing the words of a tyrant." (Nuff said!) From Ben-Gurion Uni- versity of the Negev... "Sometimes it's easy to forget what a miracle today's Israel is. Everywhere you look, you see a modern, vibrant, thriving nation with more promise than imagination could have conceived a few future? From where it stands at looks even more miraculous. Dr. Roi Gazit staff at the Harvard Medical School. They considered his expertise so valuable that he was specifically 'targeted' for recruitment. So while he was in Israel visiting family, the BGU team invited Dr. Gazit for a tour of the campus and facilities. And the rest, as they say, is history. (Not only is Israel leading in Cancer research, there is hope for ALS treatment, Autism research, heart failure prevention and Alzheimer's, to name a few.) And speaking of our beloved Israel... I received this letter from DAVID HARRIS, CEO of the American Jewish Committee: "Today, nearly 70 years after Israel declared independence, her right to exist is still under assault at the United Nations, by the boycott Israel movement, on college campuses, and among many in the diplomatic community. Each year, the UN General Assembly hits Israel with 20 or more hostile resolutions. Supporters of the BDS (boycott, divestment, sanctions) campaign continue their insidious ef- forts to isolate, demonize, and delegitimize the Jewish state. And Israel's harshest critics use every means available to poison mainstream public opinion against her. This unjust treatment has to stop!"

One for the road... Howard and his wife Becky are soon going on vacation and are doing some shopping for clothes. As they pass the ladies swimwear department, Becky says to Howard, "Darling, what do you think I should do? It's been at least 10 years since I last bought any swimwear. I know I've put on some weight since then but I do need to buy something new for our holiday. So do you think I should go for a bikini or an all-in-one?" "I think you should get a bikini," replies Howard, "because I don't think you would get it all in one." NOTE: Howard is hoping his black eye will heal before they go on vacation! can be purchased at the following locations: ORANGE COUNTY JCC, 851 N.

The name of the library and great hall are named for M. Carey Thomas, who served as the private college's president from 1894 to 1922. According to biographer Helen Lefkowitz Horowitz, Thomas prevented the hiring of Jewish teachers at the Bryn Mawr School in Baltimore, and later made sure she was not dealingwith Jewish candidates for faculty positions at the college. Horowitz also noted that Thomas lobbied against the admission of a Jewish stu- dent, Sadie Szold, to the Bryn Mawr School in 1886. Thomas "had a profound impact on opportunities for women in higher education, on the academic develop- ment and identity of Bryn Mawr, and on the physical suspends using name of founder i;:i The Bryn Mawr College Great Hall named for M.
