Federation’s Shalom Jacksonville and River Garden Senior Services invite newcomers and locals to a delightful Jewish Java on November 2 when Elliot Palevsky will share his personal “Adventures in Yiddish Land.” The former CEO of River Garden is also an educator of Yiddish Language and Culture having served on the Yiddish faculties of Queens College(NY) and Vilnius University.

Please join us on Wednesday, November 2 from 9-10:30 a.m. at River Garden, 11401 Old St. Augustine Rd., where you will enjoy a bagel breakfast and friendly conversation from 9-9:30 a.m. followed by a nostalgic and interesting program. Reservations are a must if you plan to join us for breakfast. Please RSVP by October 31 by calling Isabel Balotin at 904-448-5000 x206 or [email protected].

The Yiddish language and literature played a major role in the lives of millions of Eastern European Jews. Many of us grew up learning wonderful expressions and stories. Elliot’s presentation is sure to conjure up many fond memories as he shares some of his experiences and incredible knowledge of the subject.

Shalom Jacksonville is the official Jewish welcome wagon of Northeast Florida. If you are new to the community or are newly interested in our community, please contact Isabel Balotin at [email protected]. Jewish Java meets the first Wednesday of every month, same time and same place. Mark your calendars now for our popular breakfast and schmoozing programs.

Save the date: Wednesday, December 7. Videographer and storyteller Byron Caplan is helping families to keep their histories alive and preserving life stories of loved ones by his “Living History Video Memoirs”. We will enjoy some samples of his work and have lots of opportunity to learn about the process. Everyone is invited.
