HERITAGE FLORIDA JEWISH NEWS, OCTOBER 9, 2009 This tribute book layout was prepared by Joanne Fink of LakeMde Design. The movers and shakers of the Orlando Jewish com- munity will be featured in the Jewish Pavilion's "Honor Thy Father and Thy Mother" tribute book project.

The book offers us the opportunity to commemorate family members who have passed and to honor those that are still a vibrant part of our lives." "Rarely is anyone offered the chance to publicly honor parents and grand- parents while making an ongoing difference in the community," say Jewish Pavilion organizers. "The Jewish Pavilion is excited to make this a special opportunity to preserve and share important fam- ily memories and photo- graphs."

Rabbini- cal counseling and regular visitation have enabled elders to feel connected to and appreciated by the community.
