HERITAGE FLORIDA JEWISH NEWS, OCTOBER 24, 2014 JGSGO has a secret weapon to reveal Join the Jewish Genealogi- cal Society of Greater Orlando (JGSGO) on Tuesday, Nov. 4, for a program featuring genealo- gist lecturer, Marlis Humphrey, who will discuss "SIGs--The secret weapon to discovering your family history." Discovering your ancestors can be quite challenging. There are dozens of groups of experts specializing in key areas of Jewish genealogi- cal research. These Special Interest Groups (SIGs) are readily available to answer your specific questions and share their experience and knowledge. Many SIGs are also instrumental in sponsor- ing translation projects to index genealogical records from their region of interest. These records might only otherwise be available by vis- iting an in-country archive. We will survey the dozens of SIGs - those that specialize in a region (e.g. Ukraine, Poland, Belarus, etc.) and those that specialize in a topic (e.g., DNA, Rabbinic Genealogy, etc.). We will also take a look at District Research Groups (DRGs) and Birds of a Feather (BOFs) as additional communities of common interest and re- Marlis Humphrey sources to assist your family history research. We will learn what they have to offer and how to access their data and information to help you grow your family tree. Marlis Glaser Humphrey is president of the International Association of Jewish Genea- logical Societies (IAJGS) and vice president of the Florida State Genealogical Society (FSGS). Humphrey recently received the FSGS 2014 Dis- tinguished Service award. She is a member of the Association of Professional Genealogists (APG) and founder of my- Ancestories www.myAnces-, a company that helps genealogists create family histories to treasure. Humphrey holds a B.A. in Russian and an M.S. in Man- agement of Technology. The program will begin at 7 p.m. (6:30pro to meet with a maven or for computer ques- tions or to schmooze) and run until 9 p.m. Held at the Roth JCC, 851 N. Maitland Ave., it is open to the public and the cost is $5 for nonmembers and free for members.

A Shabbat to remember Horizon Bay at Lake Orienta resident Martha and Our Jewish Orlando member Victoria Nuazarov hold a lulav and etrog in celebration of Sukkot. By Nancy Ludin Jewish Pavilion Imagine sitting at the Shabbos table for three and a half hours. The conversation flourished at Horizon Bay at Lake Orientawhen the young adults from "Our Jewish Orlando" interacted with the elderly residents. On Friday, Oct. 10, The Jewish Pavilion coordinated a Shabbat meal where the two populations would have the opportunity to converse. Zelda Goldstein, age 92, said, "this was the best meal I have ever had at Horizon Bay." Recipes were provided by the Jewish Pavilion and included Henrietta Katzen's matzah ball soup. Bunny Rosen's brisket and a tzim- mas recipe from the Jewish Academy of Orlando. Assistant chef April Williams had never before made any of these Jew- ish delicacies, but she did a superb job nonetheless. Mary Vindett, the Active Living director at Horizon Bay, decorated the table with a harvest theme. She included all the Judaica she purchased from Joanne Berman of Silver 4U. Sukkot/Shabbat services were conducted by Nancy Ludin, and everyone partici- pated fully. Eric Sugarman of Our Jewish Orlando worked behind the scenes to promote the event to young adults and to make everyone feel comfortable and welcome. It was a Shabbat to remember and cherish for all involved.
