HERITAGE FLORIDA JEWISH NEWS, OCTOBER 24, 2014 PAGE 9A By Gloria Yousha--Call 407-657-9405 or I just received some very sad family news... But in spite of it I will pass on this information directly from the Anti-Defamation League (ADL) of Florida in part: "This summer was an extremely demanding time for the ADL's Florida office. More than two dozen anti-Israel protests took place across the State of Florida in the wake of Israel's 'Operation Protective Edge.' These protests were filled with extreme and vitriolic language, and outright anti-Semitism. Several Miami area synagogues were desecrated with swastikas and anti-Semitic epithets. A south Florida Jewish family's car was vandalized with the word 'Hamas'written on its windows. Police are still investigating the murder of a rabbi who was shot down on his walk to Saturday morning services. Who does the community turn to in such trying times? Who does law enforcement turn to as a resource? The ADL has been there.., monitoring hate-filled activities, working with law enforcement, and providing support for victims and their families. The ADL in Florida has also stepped up efforts to combat bullying and hatred where it often begins.., in school. (I per- sonally know about that, unfortunately.) As the new school year begins, and as Jews usher in the New Year, the ADL is committed to making 5775 a better year for our children and grandchildren. Many of us can remember a time when we were targets of bullying, hatred and anti-Semitism. Today bullies have more avenues to threaten their targets beyond the classroom and the playground. Our children and grandchildren are often targeted on Facebook, Twitter, and other social media. Bullying and cyber-bullying are serious problems that have reached unprec- edented levels of cruelty. Name-calling and bullying thrive on stereotypes and hatred, including the roots of anti-Semitism." (When I was five years old and deluged with anti-Semitic beatings and name calling, nobody thought to call the ADL for help.) The ADL does great work and could use our support. They can be reached at the following: ADL Florida Region 621 N.W. 53rd Street, Suite 450 Boca Rat•n, FL 33487 The phone number is 561-988-2900 or you can reach them online at Still on the subject of anti-Semitism... Through the years I've heard rumors about General George S. Patton. So many, in fact, that I did some research. I found that "Old Blood And Guts" (as I believe he was called) had a dark side. His diaries and official ac- tions reveal that the general was deeply anti-Semitic. For instance, hewrote in his diary that Jews were 'sub-human.' Also, at the end of World War II he disparaged the Jewish in- mates of Hitler's death camps who had been re-interned in Displaced Person (DP) camps maintained by the United States Army in the allied zone of occupation. There is so much more I General George S. Patton could write about this sub- ject.., but he was a hero to many so if you are interested, you can look it up yourselves. On to a happier subject... On Sunday, Nov. 2, the Congregation Ohev Shalom Seniors invite everyone to their next exciting event. The synagogue is located at 613 Concourse Parkway, South, Maitland. The phone number is 407-298-4650. The Company Players will be presenting "Fly Me To The Moon" at 2 p.m. sharp in the COS Ballroom. Join them for a heavenly voyage to the stars! Climb aboard a rocket ship bound for adventure with all- American hero Flash Gordon! Tune in to WCOS radio as the studio singers entertain you with some celestial favorites. You'll hear "Stairway to the Stars," "Moonlight in Vermont" and of course "Fly me to the Moon, along with many others. Refreshments will be served after the performance as usual. The cost is still only $5 for COS Senior members; $8 for all others. There will also be 3 raffles! For further information and directions, contact COS Seniors president, BERNY RAFF at 407-767-6763. (I look forward to seeing you there.) A musical reminder... I may be in New York for this one.., but I wish I could attend! This coming Sunday, Oct. 26, the Altamonte Chapel will present the super-talented ALLAN VACHE! Radio personality and emcee of the Altamonte Jazz shows, our own ALAN ROCK, reminds us that the show starts at 12:30 p.m. and continues for two hours. Professional musicians and singers are always welcome to "sit-in" last set. Accompanying Allan will be JEFF PHILLIPS on piano; CHARLIE SILVA on bass; and DENNIS LAAK on drums. The Altamonte Chapel is located at 825 SR 436 in Altamonte Springs. For directions, cost and other information, phone 407-339-5208. Another important reminder... "A Walk In The Park" will take place at Cranes Roost Park in Altamonte Springs, also on Sunday, Oct. 26. The event starts at 9:30 a.m. and is being held in honor of the wonderful Bunny Rosen. There will be breakfast, a kid's zone, entertainment and prizes, according to NANCY LUDIN, Executive Director of the Jewish Pavilion, which is sponsoring the walk. If you are interested in attending, being a sponsor or vendor, or just donating, contact Nancy at 407-678-9363 or online at Who doesn't love matzo ball soup?... I want to shout out the wonderful service my spouse and I received at To•Jay's original gourmet dell at the Colonial Mar- ket Plaza, 2400 E. Colonial Drive, Orlando. Even the general manager, ANTHONY RISPOLI came over and bought us a delicious dessert.., with NO calories. (I feel better saying that!) At the Altamonte Springs To•Jay's just a few days earlier, our waitress, KAYLA LAUGHERY was great.., and the waitress at the next table, LAURA RUSAKIEWICZ, was also. (She made us laugh!) One for the road... Speaking of eating out: Shlomo and Yetta were getting ready to go out to din- ner. Yetta comes out of the bedroom and says to Shlomo, "Darling, do you want me to wear this Chanel suit or shall I put on the Gucci outfit? .... What do I care?" Shlomo re- plies. Yetta then asks, "Darling, shall I wear my Rolex or my Cartierwatch?" "Who gives a damn?" says Shlomo. Yetta then says to Shlomo "Darling, shall I wear my 5-carat pear or my 6-carat round diamond?" To which Shlomo responds "Hey, if you don't get your act together, and soon, we are going to miss the Early Bird Special!" Sharing memories of Sukkot The residents of Springhills of Lake Mary gathered outside for a picnic with all of the fixings. Served by the wonderful and loving staff with an added piece from Jewish Pavilion. Robin Wolfe, Springhills activities director, invited Emily Newman of Jewish Pavilion, to speak about Sukkot and share the traditions and customs with her residents. Newman explained the meaning of the lulav and etrog and demonstrated how to shake it in six directions. Many of the residents volunteered to shake it and share their own memories of how they celebrated the holiday with family years ago. Jewish Pavilion staff and volunteers visit at Springhills each month and on special holidays.
