The Hatan Torah honorees, Called for the aliyah for the last reading of the Book of Deutoronomy on Simchat Torah, are Berny and Eleanor Raft.

Eleanor moved to Orlando In 1974 when her husband retired. Her sister, Lee Sami and her parents also lived in Central Florida. Life was good until her husband passed away. Berny moved to Lakeland in 1981 to open a business which he later relocated to Orlando. A few years after the move Berny and Eleanor met; they were married in 1985 at Congregation Ohev Shalom. Berny could not be all busi- ness and no shul. When he and Eleanor married, they became caught up in a variety of ac- tivities at COS. Being active at Ohev Sha- lom came naturally to Berny since he had been very involved in his synagogue in New Jer- sey serving as executive vice president, running bingo games, making dinner parties and working in the kitchen at the shul. Both Eleanor and Berny volunteer at the Obey Shalom Hebrew School, preparing and serving snacks to the students. Berny has served as the presi- dent of the Ohev Shalom senior's group for the past nine years, and was instrumental in its becoming affiliated with the United Synagogue of Con- servative Judaism's national Hazak program for adults, age J Are you one of the many ews feeling angry and frus- trated at the way the Middle y~ast story has been reported? ou can help--learn how Is- rael is fighting media bias and attempting to improve its in- formation campaign.

Dr. MARK DAVIDS Congregation Beth Am of Longwood has formally begun its search for a full-time rabbi. Dr. Mark Davids, president of Beth Am, made this announce- ment during his State of the Congregation speech on the first day of Rosh Hashanah. He stated his commitment to put- ting a full-time rabbi in the Beth Am pulpit and that he would work toward that goal between now and the end of his term. He emphasized the im- portance of having a rabbi as "a guide along our personal and congregational spiritual path- way." He announced to his con- gregation that they have sub- mitted all of the required regis- tration forms to the Rabbinical Assembly for Beth Am to be included in the Assembly's Oc- tober Placement Bulletin. The bulletin will be distributed to the 1500 member rabbis of the Rabbinical Assembly. This pro- cedure was required by United Synagogue, of which Beth Am is a member. Beth Am has been without a full-time rabbi since Rabbi Merrill Shapiro left in May 2001 after having served for 15 years. Dr. Neal Silverstein and Attorney Norman Levin have conducted services since Rabbi Shapiro's departure. A Rabbinical Search Com- mittee, chaired by Mark Schulman, will review the applicant's resumes.
