A New Year brings new renovations for Aventura Turnberry Jewish Center The jewel of the crown of the Aventura Turnberry Jewish Center is the Soffer Sanctuary, the focal point of Jewish life in Aventura. We thank Don Soffer and his family for their vision and understanding of the need to build a synagogue and school in this fast -growing Jewish community. — William W. Landa, Chairman of the Board As we embark upon our 23rd year of worship in the Soffer Sanctuary, we are planning renovations with a new dome, magnificent stained glass windows, molding, new carpeting and new seats. — Eugene Kessler, Vice President & Building Chairman • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • ith the start of a new year (5773 on the Hebrew calendar) upon us, Aventura Turnberry Jewish Center is hosting a myriad of exciting events and services. Rabbi Jonathan Berkun expressed his enthusiasm, exclaiming: “As Rosh Hashanah approaches, there is a feeling of electricity in the air. Everyone is eagerly anticipating the sound of the shofar (ram’s horn) and the wake-up call it inspires. The New Year marks the time for Jewish people to lead better, more purposeful

and more meaningful lives. I am looking forward to personally greeting the congregation and to ushering in this season of new beginnings as a community.” Once a small, storefront synagogue and now a bustling spiritual home to more than 2,000 Jews, ATJC has many reasons to celebrate. This year’s High Holy Days will mark the 23rd year in the Soffer Sanctuary. As the congregation of ATJC renews itself spiritually, the synagogue leadership, under the direction of Chairman of the Board William Landa, President Marcy S. Resnik, Rabbi Jonathan Berkun, and Executive Vice President, Dr. Amir Baron, announces the launching of a “Building for the Future” campaign, to refurbish and enhance the sanctuary. This refurbishment will include the addition of eight magnificent stained glass windows, a beautifully crafted dome, new carpeting and seating enabling the Soffer Sanctuary to remain among the finest and most esthetically striking worship spaces in America. William Landa who is very enthusiastic about this project, offered to chair the campaign and appointed Eugene Kessler as Building Chairman, to direct and supervise the sanctuary renovations. NEW YOUTH LOUNGE In January of 2012, the synagogue undertook the project of turning two classrooms at the Tauber Academy

into a contemporary youth lounge to better serve teens after the age of Bar or Bat Mitzvah. ATJC felt it was crucial to engage the congregation’s teenagers and help them develop Judaism as part of their growing, independent identities. The 1,200 sq. foot lounge located in the George and Dorothy Barrie Youth Center is the home to ATJC’s weekly Hebrew High classes and to the Aventura Chapter of BBYO (B’nai B’rith Youth Organization). The lounge, designed by Eugene Kessler and Cindy Muchnick, contains foosball, air hockey, ping pong, a flat screen TV, modern furniture and a kitchenette. The renovation was funded in part by ATJC members, Dr. Barry and Marcy Resnik, Ari and Dr. SherylLynn Odzer, Sam and Meryll Katz, ATJC’s Brotherhood, Josh and Dana Krut, Laurence and Becky Herrup, and Dr. Amir and Sue Baron. So far, the lounge has hosted mock Passover seders, BBYO board meetings, speakers from Israel and much more. ATJC looks forward to filling the youth lounge with teens from the congregation and community this year. HIGH HOLY DAYS On Saturday, September 8, ATJC will usher in the High Holy Days with a moving Selichot service at 8:15 p.m.

Expectations, Assumptions and Disappointments

Patricia C. Frank FRANKLY SPEAKING When you feel let down it is often because you had expectations and made assumptions about your relationships and your situations, which is normal. When you feel let down you have options about how you will react. You might get upset or angry. You might feel hurt. You might fume and seethe and declare, “It’s unfair” or condemn the person or persons involved. You might choose to confront the person or situation. Before you do, consider their possible reactions and your reaction to what they might say. It is possible to make matters worse. You run the risk of being hurt even more. Ask yourself if you want them to know that they hurt you, disappointed you or let you down. Then ask yourself what you hope to achieve. Do you want an apology or the promise that it won’t happen again? Or do you simply want

to vent? Consider the fact that any confrontation can alter or perhaps end the relationship, the friendship, or the job. When you feel let down, it usually means that you misjudged the nature of the relationship. You assumed that it was different than it was. It tells you that you had hopes and expectations and that you wanted something. If you did not want something from the person or the situation you would not feel let down or disappointed. It shows you your own needs. When you feel let down you might be tempted to carry a grudge with all of the painful, negative feelings that go with it. A grudge is far too heavy to carry. It will only hurt the person carrying it. Realize that and let go of any resentment and bitterness you feel. A grudge will only exhaust you and sap your life force and joy. It is better to examine and acknowledge your own needs. Find alternate ways to satisfy them. Alter your persona. You might find that you do not need to do anything about it at all. Patricia Frank is a Licensed Psychotherapist. She can be reached at 305-788-4864.

(FRONT PAGE ART) Artistic rendering of Aventura Turnberry Jewish Center’s Soffer Sanctuary stained glass windows - Shabbat and Jewish Holiday themed

On Sunday, September 16th at noon, seven South Florida hospitals will partner to cheer on the hometown Miami Dolphins against the Oakland Raiders during Know Your Stats, a free football viewing party to raise awareness about men’s health. Aventura Hospital and Medical Center will serve as a co-sponsor alongside Northwest Medical Center, Plantation General Hospital, University Hospital and Medical Center, Westside Regional Medical Center, Mercy Hospital and Kendall Regional Medical Center. The festivities will begin at noon with the pre-game show and continue into game time as the rivalry is broadcast on six large combined screens at Privet, a grand theater room in Gulfstream Park Racetrack and Casino. The room will be filled with delicious trays of traditional tailgating favorites and booths displaying educational information about men’s health issues from prostate cancer to healthy lifestyle tips.

Part of “Know Your Stats,” a national public awareness campaign to promote the American Urological Association (AUA) prostate cancer screening guidelines, the event will boast a team of experts ready to provide valuable educational information between first downs and timeouts. The AUA and the National Football League (NFL) joined forces to launch this campaign in 2009 to encourage all men over the age of 40 to ask their doctors important questions about their prostate health. Men’s health experts from each of the seven hospitals will be on hand to answer questions and provide valuable information about men’s health, while the game roars in the background. Privet at Gulfstream Park Racetrack and Casino is located at 901 S. Federal Highway in Hallandale Beach. The event is free and open to the public. Valet parking is available. For more information or to reserve your place, call 1-866-442-2362.

Studies Don’t Lie:

Patients Benefit from a Strong PCP Relationship

A

senior from Broward County is rushed to the emergency room because she mixed medications that are contra-indicated. Another bounced around from specialist to specialist, undergoing duplicate tests and procedures. All of this could be avoided. More than 100 studies document the critical role primary care physicians (PCPs) play in patient care. PCPs can be many things for a patient — their cheerleader, advocate and even their medical interpreter — but most importantly, the studies prove that having a strong relationship with a PCP leads to better quality of life, more productive longevity, and lower costs as a result of reduced hospitalization, improved prevention and better coordination of chronic disease care. AvMed Health Plans, one of the oldest Medicare providers in South Florida, has embraced a more PCPcoordinated approach to healthcare. The company recently introduced CenteredCare®, which puts the PCP at the center of every member’s care. According to Dr. Edwin Rodriguez, Medical Director at AvMed, this coordinated approach will lead to better health outcomes for patients. “Some 15-20% of Medicare hospital admissions are due to medication complications,” said Rodriguez. “By

by Christine Bucan

developing a strong relationship with your PCP, you can avoid this.” Louise Schendel, a senior from Margate who visits her PCP every three months, admits she would be lost without the lasting relationship she has built with her PCP over the years. “When I have a problem, I call him and he tells me exactly where to go and what to do. I feel like I have someone out there rooting for me,” said Schendel, an AvMed Medicare Advantage plan member for two years. “Without my PCP I wouldn’t have the confidence on where to go and what specialists to visit.” William Pena, M.D., a primary care physician who practices in Hollywood, often acts as an interpreter for patients who don’t always understand what a specialist recommends: "They want us to explain procedures. The best way to get better results is when a patient clearly understands what they have and how to interpret tests. They need to understand their options for treatment and they rely on their PCP to help." To learn more about the importance of building a strong relationship with your PCP, visit AvMedMedicare.org.

1812: Our Most Misunderstood War

Bob Diamond HISTORICALLY YOURS Associated Press reporter Beth J. Harpaz was right when she recently wrote, “Good luck finding someone who can explain in 10 words or less what the War of 1812 was all about.” Some historians will say it was over “Impressment,” namely, that the U.S. declared war against England because the British were wrongfully seizing their deserting sailors off America’s ships. Well, the British had already agreed not to do it again before we declared war against England. Some will say that the “war was a last grasp by England to control its former colonies.” The British, however, were already involved in a “parallel war” in fighting the Napoleonic Wars in Europe and the British public opposed another lengthy war with America. Many historians say that the War of 1812 “was an attempted land grab of Canada by the U.S.” There is some merit in that argument as we had

invaded Canada twice; the first time was during our Revolutionary War and the second time was shortly after our 1812 Declaration of War, however, the British won both times. Some say that the U.S. wanted to show the British our great strength in our “Second War of Independence.” Hardly, as Britain had some 600 ships while the U.S. had just 17 ships, including Old Ironsides, the most important ship in our fleet. Were the British horrible in invading America and burning down our White House on August 24, 1814? Well, not quite. The reason they did it was in retaliation for our invading Canada and our burning down their White House. There should be no dispute that Andrew Jackson led the “final American Victory at the Battle of New Orleans,” aided by Jewish pirate Jean Lafitte. Well, not quite, as the war was already declared over but word had not yet reached Jackson and the British forces in New Orleans. Who won the War of 1812? At best, it was a tie. British forces held some American land, including parts of Maine. Both sides agreed, however, to simply stop the war and go back to the original borders.

‘Extreme food makeovers’ BY BARI AUERBACH If you want to start eating better, it may be time for an “extreme food makeover” targeting what’s currently on your takeout menu or in your fridge and kitchen cabinets. Here are some makeover recipes and ideas for what should get tossed in a hefty bag to make room for healthier choices: Make Takeout Healthier A recent episode of the Dr. Oz Show featured how to take all the fat and calories out of popular takeout entrees like these: . A healthier recipe for shrimp fried rice uses quinoa instead of rice; ponzu sauce (which has a lot less sodium than soy sauce), edamame, asparagus, peppers and a few tbs. of canola oil. While the typical takeout version has as much as 1,000 calories – this healthier version only has 360 calories per serving. A healthier meatball parmesan recipe uses ground chicken instead of ground beef or pork and whole wheat pasta. Other “secret” ingredients include two egg whites, frozen spinach, and grated parmesan cheese. A regular takeout serving has 970 calories – but this healthier version only has 490 calories per serving. Shelve It If you’ve got yogurt on your refrigerator shelf, take the “Activia challenge” and discover. Activia Dessert Vanilla Bean in a four oz. size has a whopping 19g of sugar – but Dannon Light & Fit Vanilla has only 1g sugar per 6 oz serving. Are your cabinet shelves stocked with energy bars marketed as high protein? Some actually have very low amounts of protein and high amounts of carbohydrates in the form of sugar. For example, one leading brand has 10 grams of protein and as much as 18 grams of sugar - while another better choice has 30 grams of protein and only 2 grams of sugar. Bowled Over Beware of what’s in your bowl since “healthy looking cereals” such as Kellogg’s Raisin Bran or Smart Start have as much as

17g sugar; Quaker flavored oatmeal has 9g sugar; and Nature Valley Granola Bars have 12g sugar. Smarter choices include Publix Bran Flakes, Multigrain Cheerios and Quaker original flavored oatmeal. Pour it Out Beware of fruit smoothies! One 24ounce smoothie provides about 450 calories - that’s the same amount of calories in 10-12 doughnut holes! A solution is to make less caloric homemade versions using 1-2 servings fruit, 1/2 cup skim milk, and 1/2 cup non-fat flavored yogurt. Out the Door If shelves on your refrigerator door are filled with fattening salad dressings and condiments, lose ‘em and buy winning replacements to enjoy with all the fresh vegetables and lean proteins you’ll be restocking with. Using balsamic vinegar, red wine vinegar, calorie-free Walden Farms dressings (available in the produce department) and mustard instead of mayo or ketchup can help toss added fat and calories out of salads and sandwiches. Go Yonanas! Instead of ice cream, now you can satisfy your sweet tooth with a lot less fat and calories thanks to the amazing Yonanas machine. It makes creamy, delicious frozen treats, using only frozen fruit, that looks, tastes and feels like soft-serve ice cream in seconds! Visit yonanas.com (available at Bed Bath & Beyond).

SEASON OF CHANGE What comes to mind when someone says “Frat Party?” If you’re like most people, you may conjure up images of rowdy latenight bashes in which frat boys and sorority girls are drinking, partying and ultimately trashing said party house. At least that is the image Hollywood would have us believe. Well, recently I attended a frat party - of sorts...and I am proud to say it was NOTHING like those created for the big screen. In this case, a handful of frat brothers of South Florida’s Alpha Phi Alpha came together to party with a purpose. Hosting the first annual White Party, the Alphas teamed up with local charity, Kids in Distress. The organization serves children and families in need in our community; filling the economic, social and emotional gaps which unfortunately exist for far too many youngsters here in South Florida. A swanky, classy affair which began the moment the valet staff whisked away our cars, guests were treated to perhaps one of the most chic frat parties to date. There were no beer-kegs anywhere or college boys jumping into pools fully-clothed. There were no stragglers laying drunk on the front lawn. There was no one hanging from a second floor balcony vomiting on

the people below. There was however, live music by saxophonist Randy Corinthian, upscale silent auction items, delectable food presented by the students of Le Cordon Bleu College of Culinary arts and a top notch South Florida view of the ocean from the private home of a Broward supporter. What fun to be on hand serving as guest host and to see dozens of guests enjoying a night of music, food, friendship and community service! The success of this frat party should come as no surprise. Founded in 1906, by African American students at Cornell University determined to build a buffer against racial injustice, the fraternity of Alpha Phi Alpha has a motto that sets the pace for what the frat brothers of today continue to do: Develop leaders, promote brotherhood and academic excellence, while providing service and advocacy for our communities. I would say Alpha Phi Alpha founding fathers would be proud! The event raised approximately $8,000, with proceeds going directly to Kids in Distress! I don’t know about you, but I’m thinking THAT’S the kind of frat party Hollywood should be depicting!

Vi is the Latin root for the word “life,” which was chosen as the name for the company because it captures the positive opportunities to live a more engaging and fulfilling life as an older adult. Vi’s ability to merge its hospitality heritage with quality senior living is what differentiates the brand from others. Visitors and residents can sense this commitment to quality and service from the moment they walk into one of Vi’s communities, accord-

ing to Richardson. “Hospitality is in our DNA; and every detail is meant to convey quality service, from the decor to our lifestyle and fitness programs and to our employees who’ve been specially trained in the art of making residents feel at home.” Vi communities feature stylish dining venues that enable residents to eat well and dine in style. Menus offer a variety of options to suit residents’ nutritional needs and taste preferences. Meals are prepared by chefs trained at The Culinary Institute of America. As testament to Vi’s approach, a recent survey of independent living residents at Vi’s 10 CCRC communities finds them happy with their decision to live at Vi. The survey, taken this spring, finds that 94 percent of Vi’s independent living residents who completed the survey are very satisfied or satisfied with the community. Almost 95 percent say they would recommend their Vi community to family or friends. For more information contact Marjorie Aloni, Community Relations Manager at 305-692-4829.

‘Aventura Fall Lineup’

Bari Auerbach LIFE IN THE CITY TV networks are launching their new fall programs, but right here in Aventura, we’re creating some great reality shows like these: Revenge: This addictive hit drama is all about how the age defying motto “looking good is the best revenge” is really being brought to life by Aventura area cosmetic surgeons and Med Spas (with absolutely no downtime!) Two and a Half Men: This show may be at risk for cancellation due to Aventura’s proliferation of gyms and weight loss centers dedicated to helping men and women lose so much weight – they’re now at least two and a half times less their original size! American Idol: The Aventura version will feature judges who idolize residents with enviable talents like knowing how to bypass traffic on Biscayne by using all the side streets; expertly swerving out of the way to avoid accidents in crowded parking lots; and perfectly implementing drive

time strategies to get through school zones - seconds before the yellow lights start flashing. The Voice: Set amidst Aventura condo association meetings, this show will feature people voicing their opinions about crucial issues including why no one should ever be allowed to wear pajamas in the lobby; and why there should be an assessment for balcony restorations - including private swimming pools for everyone! Real Housewives: This reality show would prove Aventura wives rarely lose their cool - unless there’s a designer shoe sale going on and they’re all eager to get a bargain - along with the shoe box for their kid’s school project due in the morning. The View: Barbara Walters is thinking about hosting this program showcasing spectacular views from Aventura homes, where savvy shoppers can use telescopes to view when people pull out of the best Aventura Mall parking spots! Extreme Home Makeover: Inspired by landscapers who helped ensure Aventura was “clean and pristine” virtually seconds after a recent tropical storm, this will be the first makeover show with no “before and afters” required since Aventura always gets the highest ratings for being the “City of Excellence.”

Mount Sinai Medical Center plays lead role in Florida Silver Alert Program The Mount Sinai Wien Center for Alzheimer’s Disease and Memory Disorders is taking a lead role in Florida’s Silver Alert program, a plan to help law enforcement officers rescue persons with Alzheimer’s disease, or a related disorder, who are driving a car and become lost. Mount Sinai helps disseminate information for the Department of Elder Affairs and coordinates with the police department to ensure the victims’ and their families receive the follow up care they need. The Silver Alert program informs the public of the missing person through dynamic message signs on the highway. These lighted message signs display the words “Silver Alert” along with the make, color and license tag number of the car being driven by the missing person. It is a coordinated effort to quickly broadcast important information to citizens so that they can assist in the rescue of an endangered person. For a Silver Alert to be issued, the senior citizen must be over 60 years old, have a clear indication of dementia and be driving. According to Dr. Ranjan Duara, Medical Director of Mount Sinai’s Wien Center, “Individuals with dementia are at the greatest risk for wandering, and they can make

judgmental errors such as driving into wooded areas or water, driving the wrong way on the road, and not recognizing road signs. Mount Sinai’s participation in the Silver Alert Program is vital to protecting a

very fragile and vulnerable population in Florida, and it may help prevent a tragedy.” Over 4 million Floridians are aged 60 or older, and more than 500,000 of them have some sort of dementia. Mount Sinai

Medical Center, along with the Florida Silver Alert Support Committee, urges residents to look after friends and family with dementia, and to stay alert for Silver Alert signs along the roadways. If you believe a senior citizen has gone missing from their residence or they have failed to arrive at a destination within a reasonable period of time, call 911 immediately and have them initiate a Silver Alert. Be prepared to provide the local authorities with the make, model, year, and color of the car, along with the tag number and tag state. In addition, let them know if the missing senior is taking any medications and have a photograph ready. Unlike filing a missing person’s report, there is no waiting period to issue a Silver Alert. If you think you have spotted the person mentioned in a Silver Alert, you should call 911 immediately and give the location of where you believe you saw this person. For more information about Florida’s Silver Alert, call 1-877-404-SILVER (7458) or visit www.floridasilveralert.com. For information on the Mount Sinai Wien Center for Alzheimer’s Disease and Memory Disorders, call 305-674-CARE (2273).

Warren Henry Auto Group sponsors 3rd Annual All-Star Basketball Kids Camp with NBA Legends Warren Henry Auto Group, South Florida’s premier luxury auto group, sponsored an interactive All-Star Basketball Kids Camp experience recently at the MichaelAnn Russell Jewish Community Center hosted by the South Florida National Basketball Retired Players Association (NBRPA) and Floyd Sports Marketing. NBA legends Mark Strickland (former Miami Heat guard), NBA Champion Norris Cole (current Miami Heat guard) and Tim Hardaway (former Miami Heat point guard) interacted with and taught campers the fundamentals and importance of teamwork – a transferable life skill “off the court.” Special guests included Marvin Jones (former New York Jets linebacker), Laurence Maroney (former New England Patriots running back), Plaxico Burress (former New York Jets wide receiver), Kenny Anderson (former Boston Celtics point guard) and Warren Sapp (former Tampa Bay Buccaneers defensive tackle).

A sponsor since the camp’s inception in 2009, Warren Henry Auto Group sponsored ten underprivileged children from the Center for Family and Child Enrichment to attend in addition to providing special t-shirts for all participants. Fisker Miami, Land Rover North and South Dade, Warren Henry Infiniti, Warren Henry Jaguar and Warren Henry Volvo also provided an exclusive vehicle showcase for participating NBA legends and campers. “This interactive camp teaches fundamental basketball skills, sportsmanship and team concepts, emphasizing the importance of maintaining a positive attitude, staying in school and saying no to drugs and alcohol. These core values help enhance a sense of self-confidence for these young souls,” says Floyd Raglin, President of Floyd Sports Marketing and cohost of the All-Star Kids Camp.

Rosa Naccarato helps ‘present the case’ With Goldman, Naccarato, Vela & Associates, Court Reporters/Litigation Support BY BARI AUERBACH

How do you transcribe excellence: Goldman, Naccarato, Vela & Associates, LLC, founded in 1995 by 18-year Aventura resident Rosa Naccarato. The firm has grown from its predecessor, Goldman, Naccarato, Patterson, Vela & Associates, Inc., to become a leading provider of court reporting and litigation support services to circuit court courtrooms and law firms throughout the state, nationwide and internationally. Naccarato’s entrepreneurial spirit is evidenced by rapid expansion. Today, along with partners Sandra Goldman, Gustavo Vela and CFO Arthur Kushner, she works with full-service support teams based at the firm’s main office in Miami, across from the courthouse at 66 West Flagler Street, and satellite offices in North Miami Beach, Hollywood, Fort Lauderdale, Boca Raton and West Palm Beach. Deposition suites are also available throughout South Florida to conveniently accommodate clients’ needs. Proving “perfect timing” is possible, Naccarato explains, “Beyond regular business hours, we provide emergency contacts 24/7. We’ve also established an e-mail scheduling service (scheduling@gnvonline) enabling clients to schedule court reporters at any time – day, evenings or weekends. Attorneys especially appreciate our Reallegal™ email transcript service enabling them to start preparing a case prior to receiving a final hard copy.” In addition to Naccarato’s 30 years of experience and high skill level of providing an accurate record to help attorneys prepare their cases, the firm provides a comprehensive list of court reporting and case management services, including daily

Rosa Naccarato ––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––

and expedited transcripts, video-synch transcripts, Real Time delivery, master witness and exhibit indexing, electronic transcript archiving, statement invoicing and worldwide travel. Reflecting on a successful “case history,” Naccarato recalls, “I worked with my partners, leading the fight to open court reporting contracts to free competition for the first time in the history of MiamiDade’s 11th Judicial Circuit Criminal Courts. After qualifying for our first contract, we rapidly grew to become a wellrecognized leader in the court reporting profession.” Naccarato was elected Director to the Florida Court Reporters Association board in 2011; was re-elected this year as association Treasurer; and is currently a candidate for Aventura City Commissioner.

Dr. Dalia Rosenfeld, baby teeth expert

Dr. Dalia Rosenfeld (left) with kids

As a pediatric dentist at Aventura Pediatric Dentistry & Orthodontics, Dr. Dalia Rosenfeld is passionate about children having the biggest and brightest smiles in South Florida. She discovered her desire to help children with their dental needs during her last year of dental school at Santa Maria University in Caracas, Venezuela, where she had the opportunity to offer her services to Wonken, a remote Indian community located in Venezuela’s Gran Sabana region. The area’s population is nearly 3,000 and only the central village in Wonken has basic services. The diet of its people is based on their own production. Outside of the village the malnutrition rate is 99% in children. Dr. Rosenfeld’s experience helping the underserved children of that community and other villages only reachable by river helped her realize her love for pediatric dentistry. She continued her education with two years of specialized training in pediatric dentistry at the University of Medicine and Dentistry of New Jersey. In 2011, Dr. Rosenfeld was more than thrilled to volunteer her services at the New Jersey

Special Olympics. Volunteers, visitors and many medal winners were provided a complete dental exam free of charge. Locally, Dr. Rosenfeld volunteers her time speaking to pre-K through 8th graders, where her entertaining presentation about avoiding plaque monsters and the importance of brushing inspires many kids to become future dentists. At Aventura Pediatric Dentistry & Orthodontics, Dr. Rosenfeld provides dental care for children as young as 12 months. With her two years of advanced training, Dr. Rosenfeld has the expertise to treat any child in need of dental care and she strives to make each dental visit a positive experience not only for the child, but also their parents. Aventura Pediatric Dentistry & Orthodontics as well as the Dental Care Group’s patients benefit from state-of-theart technology combined with a 35 year tradition of dental excellence. For more information, call 305-9351613 and 305-935-2797 or visit online at aventurapediatricdentistry.com, or dentalcaregroup.net.

Fall for the Art and Culture Center of Hollywood Want to experience the finest in contemporary visual arts, a high-quality arts education program for yourself or your child, or a memorable family-friendly performance? Look no further than the Art and Culture Center of Hollywood, which is designated as one of the eight Major Cultural Institutions out of 600 Broward County cultural organizations by the Broward County Commission. Since 1978, the Center has served as a vital and necessary home for the creative imagination. Its accomplishments over the past year fulfill that vision. From its historic gallery exhibition Artist Unknown/The Free World to its groundbreaking Hot Topics Discussion Series with national arts leaders to its innovative Creative Connection endeavor to reengage Baby Boomers in the arts, the Center strives to show that the arts are not an extracurricular activity, but rather an essential part of the community. “The Art and Culture Center of Hollywood strives to bring the arts to the widest possible audience,” says Center Executive Director Joy Satterlee. “We accomplish that goal by offering Free Admission Days, providing free arts education to Broward County Public Schools and giving eligible children tuition waivers to our summer camp.” On average, more than 50,000 people attend activities annually at the Center’s galleries, arts school and the 500-seat Hollywood Central Performing Arts Center. This summer alone, more than 8,000 people representing 28 states and 26 countries attended the Nathan Sawaya: The Art of the Brick exhibition.

Upcoming visual arts programming includes Justin H. Long’s first Broward County exhibition Bow Movement, which claims sailing as an artistic medium, not just a sport; the variety of outstanding works found in the Annual Abracadabra Exhibition/Fundraiser and the All-Media Juried Biennial; and the legendary original Peanuts drawings of Charles M. Schulz, which have not been shown publicly in 10 years. Also planned is another season of high-quality education programs for children and adults, as well as exciting family-friendly performances.

Caring for Seniors It’s not easy. A growing number of families with aging spouses, parents and grandparents are facing some very tough question. Where will their senior loved ones live? Who will care for them? Where can they find affordable care? The goal for many families is to help seniors remain independent and in their own homes as long as possible. Most don’t require constant supervision or medical attention, yet. Right now, all they really need is a helping hand. “Most seniors want to remain in the comfort and security of their own homes and can do so safely with the little bit of help,” said Scott Cantin, Vice President of Advancare, LLC. The agency provides compassionate caregivers who go to the senior’s home and help with daily living. They include such things as meal preparation, transportation, bathing, grooming light housekeeping, and medication reminders-task that have become too difficult for seniors to perform. “Family members are the largest group of caregivers,” said Cantin. “Twenty-five million Americans currently provide eighty percent of the home care. Many have children and jobs or live thousands of miles away. It can very stressful situation. By getting some qualified assistance, the result is a happier, safer senior with less stress of family caregivers.” When does a family know their senior needs help? According to Cantin, family members need to consider some assistance when they notice significant changes in the way senior moves, acts, thinks and responds. However, families often need some objective assistance in ascertaining the extent of the problem and deciding on a course of action. Cantin says there is no need to guess. He suggests family members ask themselves the following questions; and if there is a concern with even one of these indicators, the family discusses the issue openly, calmly and honestly. • Has there been a medical condition diagnosed that affects daily living? • Has driving become difficult? • Is their weight stable and refrigerator well stocked? • Are household chores being done regularly? • Are there signs of moodiness such as loneliness, despair, depression, frustration, irritability

or anxiety? A fear of going out of the house? • Do you notice memory lapses and difficulty finding the right words? • Are medications being taken regularly and on time? Does the senior understand what the medications are for and are refills on schedule? Cantin said one of the biggest fears among senior citizens is the fear of falling, because it leads to lost confidence and decreased activity. “Falling is the primary catalyst for hospital admissions among seniors,” said Cantin. “Falls are responsible for 40 percent of nursing home admissions and 70 percent of accidental deaths in people over seventy-five years of age. Injuries from falls cost $70 billion dollars each year. Cantin said that the good news is the most falls can be prevented. Besides controlling internal physical factors, families can correct cluttered spaces, poor lighting, lack of handrails, unstable chairs and other environmental factors to significantly reduce the chances of a serious injury from a fall. Advancare provides specially trained caregiver for seniors and chronically ill living in the South Florida area. The agency is a member of the Senior’s Choice network of independent companion care companies, which requires its own training and certification process for their employees. All of our caregivers must pass a background checks and ongoing. “Our staff is comprised of experienced caregivers-good people with big hearts,” said Cantin. “They provide much needed companionship in additional to helping with tasks and chores.” Anyone interested in inquiring about their services or who want a free assessment may visit www.advancare.net or call 305-441-9794.

ADL receives generous Grant Award to fund bullying prevention programs The Anti-Defamation League (ADL) is proud to announce that the League has just received a generous Grant Award from the Dr. John T. Macdonald Foundation, Inc. that will help expand ADL’s No Place for Hate® campaign into ten new schools in North MiamiDade County during the 2012-2013 school year. No Place for Hate® programs were developed to organize schools and communities to work together and develop activities that enhance the appreciation of diversity and foster harmony amongst diverse groups. Through a generous grant provided by the Harriet and Jack Rosenfeld Foundation in 2009, schools throughout Miami-Dade and Broward Counties have already been and continue to be designated No Place for Hate®. Through this new incredibly generous fund from the Dr. John T. Macdonald Foundation, Inc., ten elementary and middle schools in the North Miami Beach Senior High School and North Miami Senior High School feeder patterns will receive bullying-prevention trainings for educators and students. “The Anti-Defamation League is extremely grateful to the Dr. John T. Macdonald Foundation, Inc. not only for their generosity, but for their acumen in recognizing the need to stop the epidem-

ic of bullying and cyberbullying in our schools through a communitywide approach,” stated Lilian Medina, ADL Florida Education Project Director. “Through this grant, ADL’s No Place for Hate® anti-bullying and prejudicereductions programs will impact over 3,000 students and almost 100 educators. By targeting specific school feeder patterns, our goal is to create a longlasting climate change in schools to ensure the continuity of a positive antibullying environment throughout a child’s entire school experience.” Nearly two dozen schools in South Florida have already fulfilled ADL’s requirements to become designated as No Place for Hate® since 2010. Through the Dr. John T. Macdonald Foundation, Inc. Grant Award, ten more schools will qualify to be designated No Place for Hate® upon fulfilling ADL’s criteria. The Dr. John T. Macdonald Foundation, Inc., is a private grant-making foundation, supporting projects and programs designed to improve, preserve or restore the health and health care of the people in Miami-Dade County. For more information or a grant application, contact Ms. Kim Greene, Executive Director at (305) 667-6017 or visit their website at jtmacdonaldfdn.org.

Be a ‘BFF’ with Friendship Circle Help unite children with special needs and teen volunteers BY BARI AUERBACH

Every kid knows “BFF” means Best Friends Forever – and now it can also stand for “Best Friend Fundraisers” supporting Friendship Circle of Greater Miami’s mission to unite special needs children with teen volunteers sharing the power of true giving that can generate a lasting impact on the direction of their lives. BE A ‘BFF’ BY VOTING ON FACEBOOK “Friendship Circle is competing with charities nationwide for grants ranging from $10,000 to $250,000 from the Chase Community Giving program,” explains Charity Director, Mendel Dechter. “The community can help ensure our success by voting for Friendship Circle through the Chase Community Giving program on Facebook. Visit Facebook.com/ChaseCommunityGiving to cast your vote now.” BE A ‘BFF’ AT THE 1ST FUNDRAISER, NOV. 8 Friendship Circle is inviting existing and prospective new “BFF’s” to attend an inaugural fun, fundraising/awareness evening on Nov. 8 in Golden Beach “During this event, we want to help parents and teens understand what differentiates our unique non-profit program,” Dechter said. “While many others address the issues of

children with special needs, most are focused on goal-oriented therapeutic care. Friendship Circle embraces an added dimension by offering unconditional love. By having this love flow from the youthful spirit of wellguided teenagers, its effectiveness has proven to be remarkable. “Our teen volunteers have been able to reach children in ways that professionals, or even family members, have not. Friendship Circle has also had a profound effect on the teens themselves, instilling within them the values of giving and gratitude. At this pivotal stage, when the world worries about bullying in the classroom, a program like Friendship Circle shows teenagers the importance of giving to others and builds a foundation of acceptance.” BE A ‘BFF’ BY VOLUNTEERING Local middle and high school students already volunteering to be “BFF’s” are helping special needs kids benefit from positive and meaningful interactions with their peers. Just some of the proactive Friendship Circle programs include weekly home visits, cooking programs, sports leagues, holiday events, field trips and other enriching, entertaining and educational activities. “Being a Circle volunteer is a great way to give an extraordinary gift to an extraordinary kid,” Dechter said. “Teen volunteers can also build friendships with lots of other teens discovering that giving to others can make you feel better about yourself and the world!” BE A ‘BFF’ ONLINE Simply by clicking on FCMiami.org and Facebook.com/FriendshipCircleMiami, you can become a “BFF” and learn more about volunteer opportunities, upcoming special events and fundraisers. Helpful parenting tips, resources and photo albums capturing joyous and memorable Friendship Circle moments can also be viewed. “At Friendship Circle, we do our best to provide programs and support for children

with special needs while simultaneously working to ensure teens in our community can do positive work and make the world a better and more accepting place,” Dechter emphasizes. “But without ‘BFF’ partners, we would be unable to continue our work.” For more information about Circle of Friendship, phone 305-735-9686, visit FCMiami.org and Facebook.com/ FriendshipCircleMiami. To help Friendship Circle receive up to $250,000 through the Chase Community Giving program, visit Facebook.com/ChaseCommunityGiving to cast your vote.
