About immigrants...

This is a country made great by immigrants! My ancestry is Canada, Ukraine, Russia, Poland... as far as I know. (I plan to take an Ancestry test soon to see where else my ancestors come from). Everyone should be welcome... that is everyone but... (no, I am NOT getting political!)

Great news from Greece...

I read this in a recent World Jewish Congress (WJC) digest and pass it along:

"DAVID SALTIEL, president of the Central Board of Jewish Communities in Greece, a WJC affiliate, has expressed deep satisfaction following a presidential decree that would pave the way for the construction of the Holocaust Museum of Greece in the place of the old railway station of Thessaloniki.

Saltiel noted the successful efforts made by the Jewish community in Thessaloniki with the cooperation of the president and CEO of Gaiaose and the mayor of Thessaloniki to enable the construction of the museum. The Presidential decree was signed on Dec. 29, 2017, and published in the official government gazette.

The museum will be constructed in the city of Thessaloniki, whose 50,000 citizens were exterminated in the Nazi camp. It will serve as a continuous reminder of the consequences of racism and intolerance, as a memorial of the Holocaust, as a place of defense and promotion of human rights and fundamental freedoms of humankind, and as a place of peaceful coexistence for all people, the community said in a statement.

A Jewish Pavilion Mensch...

The Jewish Pavilion is very excited to announce that FAYE NOVICK will be the incoming chairman of the board. Her term begins officially on Aug. 13.

Faye has been active with the Jewish Pavilion for more than 10 years. She recently served a three-year term as president of the Friend's Board, a women's auxiliary.

For the past eight years, Faye has played a major roll in the Fall Festival.

As an event planner with excellent space planning skills, she has been responsible for coordinating all the vendors.

Faye also served as an active volunteer visiting lonely seniors and assisting with holiday parties.

(Faye is a "Mensch" indeed!)

Attention Republicans and Democrats...

Take a lesson from this please:

Shout-Outs...

Chelsea Hostetler

When you go to Perkins Restaurant on University Blvd, (near Forsythe Road) you will be lucky if you are waited on by either CHELSEA HOSTETLER or MICHAEL STEWART PEREGOOD. Absolutely the best service and the most pleasant waiters ever anywhere!

(And they tell me they take the calories out of all the food they serve me!)

One for the road...

Freda and her friend Ruth were having a chat about their sons. "So Ruth," asks Freda, "I hear that your Paul has just been made a director of Shmultz PLC. Is he a good businessman, then?" 

"Is he a good businessman?" replies Ruth. "Oy! He's a brilliant businessman, Freda. In fact mine Paul is so dedicated to his company that every night he takes his secretary to bed with him-just in case he comes up with a brilliant idea."
