Aventura Turnberry Jewish Center welcomes New Year 5772


n the eve of Rosh Hashanah, the Jewish New Year, the Aventura Turnberry Jewish Center looks forward to sharing this milestone with its congregation and the greater community. Under the leadership of Rabbi Jonathan Berkun, Chairman of the Board William Landa, President Marcy Resnik, and Executive Vice President Dr. Amir Baron, the year 5772 in the Jewish calendar marks the Aventura Turnberry Jewish Center’s twenty first year on its current campus as a vibrant conservative synagogue. Once a small, storefront synagogue and now a bustling spiritual home to more than 2000 Jews, ATJC has many reasons to celebrate. Religious services begin tonight and continue on Thursday and Friday mornings, during which worshippers contemplate

the year that has passed and commit to leading better lives in the year ahead. The Tashlikh ceremony will take place the 2nd Day of Rosh Hashanah, September 30, 5 p.m. at the marina behind the Waterways Shoppes. This annual ritual includes the blowing of the Shofar (ram’s horn) and invites the more than 250 participants to cast breadcrumbs into the water, symbolizing the casting away of personal sins.

You as a Cab Driver

Patricia C. Frank FRANKLY SPEAKING There is an often told story about a woman’s unconventional cab ride that carries a message for everyone. The driver arrived at an address and honked his horn. After a few minutes he went to the door. A frail woman in her 90’s opened it and he helped her to the car. She kept thanking him profusely. He said it was nothing. He was treating her as he would want his mother treated. She gave him the address and then she asked him if he would mind driving her through downtown. “It’s not the shortest way”, he said. She replied that she did not mind. “I’m in no hurry; I’m on my way to a hospice.” “I don’t have any family left and the doctor said that I don’t have much time.” The driver reached over and shut off the

meter and for the next two hours he drove her through the city. They went to the building where she once worked and the neighborhood where she lived with her husband. They went by a warehouse that was once a ballroom where she danced as a girl. Sometimes, she asked the driver to slow down or stop and she would sit quietly. As the sun began to set she said, “I’m tired, we can go now.” When he dropped her off he refused any payment and gave her a hug. He was deeply touched and did not take any more passengers for the rest of the day. He kept driving around, thinking how different it would have been if she had gotten a rude, angry, impatient driver or one that might have refused to drive her around. What if he had honked once and then driven away? You are a cab driver no matter who you are or what you do. You have many choices and opportunities every day to open your heart and be kind and caring to everyone you meet. Patricia Frank is a Licensed Psychotherapist. She can be reached at 305-788-4864, 212-308-0309.

Mormons, Jews and Simon Bamberger

Bob Diamond HISTORICALLY YOURS According to the American Jewish Historical Society, Judaism is foundational to the history of Mormonism. Joseph Smith, the founder of Mormonism in 1830, proclaimed that his followers were direct descendants of the ancient Hebrews, with the tenth Article of Faith of Mormonism proclaiming. “We believe in the literal gathering of Israel and in the restoration of the Ten Tribes; that Zion (for Smith’s followers) will be built upon this (North American) continent.” Smith sent Orson Hyde to prepare the land of Palestine for the return of the Jews to their ancient homeland. In Europe, Hyde met with Jewish community leaders, not to proselytize them, but to urge them to return to Palestine. On October 24, 1841, Hyde prayed on the Mount of Olives to “dedicate this land…for the return of Judah’s scattered remnants.” Hyde’s mission began a long and continual positive link between Mormons and the modern State of Israel.” Brigham Young,

successor to Smith and called the “American Moses,” led his flock across the desert to the Promised Land. Although Jews were highly respected as the “Covenant people of God,” some early Mormons referred to all nonMormons- regardless of their religion – as “Gentiles.” In 1916, Simon Bamberger ran for governor of Utah. He was the first nonMormon, the first Democrat and the only Jew ever to seek that office. During the campaign, “Bamberger visited a remote community in Southern Utah that had been settled by immigrant Norwegian converts to Mormonism. The community’s leader, a towering Norwegian, met Bamberger at the train and told him menacingly, “You might yust as vell go right back vere you come from. If you tink ve let any damn Yentile speak in our meeting house, yure mistaken.” Bamberger is said to have replied, “As a Jew, I have been called many a bad name, but this is the first time in my life I have been called a damned Gentile!” The Norwegian threw his arm around Bamberger and proclaimed, “You a Yew, an Israelite. Velcome my friend: velcome, our next governor.” The Norwegian was right. Bamberger won the election and served with great distinction.

Eleven of HCA East Florida’s Hospitals listed on the Joint Commission’s Annual Report naming top performing hospitals

Eleven HCA East Florida hospitals were named the nation’s top performers on key quality measures by The Joint Commission, the leading accreditor of health care organizations in America.

The hospitals earning this designation were recognized by The Joint Commission based on data reported about evidence-based clinical processes that are shown to improve care for certain conditions, including heart attack, heart failure, pneumonia, surgical care and children’s asthma. HCA EAST FLORIDA HOSPITALS RECEIVING DESIGNATION: BROWARD COUNTY Northwest Medical Center in Margate Plantation General Hospital University Hospital and Medical Center in Tamarac Westside Regional Medical Center in Plantation PALM BEACH COUNTY JFK Medical Center in Atlantis Columbia Hospital in West Palm Beach

MIAMI-DADE COUNTY Aventura Hospital and Medical Center Kendall Regional Medical Center ST. LUCIE COUNTY Lawnwood Regional Medical Center St. Lucie Medical Center Raulerson Hospital

Only 405 U.S. hospitals and critical access hospitals earned the distinction of top performers on key quality

measures for attaining and sustaining excellence in accountability measure performance. To be recognized as a top performer on key quality measures an organization must meet two 95 percent performance thresholds. First they must achieve a composite performance of 95 percent or above after the results of all the accountability measures for which they report data to The Joint Commission were factored into a single score, including measures that had less than 30 eligible cases or patients. Second, they must meet or exceed a 95 percent performance target for every single accountability measure for which they report data, excluding any measures with less than 30 eligible cases or patients. “We are extremely proud that eleven HCA facilities listed in South Florida named as one of The Joint Commission’s top hospitals list. This distinction is a direct result of our physicians and employees dedication in each area of its Key Quality Measures program.” Said Michael Joseph, CEO and President of HCA East Florida, “We will continue to be committed to quality care for our patients and excellence in the communities we serve.”

Victim of Negligent Security? BY JASON NEUFELD, ESQ.

Most negligent security cases boil down to two major issues that involve foreseeability and preventability: (1) Was the event foreseeable? While not all crimes can be reasonably anticipated, many can and are. The history of a particular area can be an incredibly accurate predictor of future criminal activity in that same area. A corollary to this concept is that criminal/security-related events that occur in one type of property (based on a variety of circumstances) may be more likely to occur at similar types of properties – in different locations. If a pattern of break-ins occurs in one location, I would argue that it would be negligent and careless for the owner/developer not to take preventative action to reduce the chances of similar activity occurring in their other locations. Our firm digs deeper and will pull police-incident reports, crime grids, police calls for service reports, subpoena internal property owner reports, security/maintenance company reports, investigate ordinance violations, and more. (2) Was the event preventable? Crime-prevention experts are likely to rely on the Routine Activity Theory and Rational Choice Theory. - Routine Activity Theory states that crime

occurs at a place when there is an intersection of: (a) a likely target; and (b) the absence of any deterrent, such as a guard or detection device; and of course, (c) a potential offender. - Rational Choice Theory simply states that criminals commit their bad acts when the perceived benefits outweigh the perceived risks. So someone with an interest in preventing criminal activity should look to: (i) increase the perceived difficulty of carrying out a crime; (ii) reduce the perceived reward of that crime; and (iii) increase the perceived risks involved. Crime prevention involves hiring an expert with an eye toward strategically placing or protecting ingress/egress points, landscaping, lighting, fencing, that maximizes visibility and communicates control of an area of concern. The idea is to, when possible, manipulate the environment to reduce or increase such factors as necessary. It is a commercial-property owner’s responsibility to consider these variables when risk factors present themselves.

Juicing for Health Shari Lynn Rothstein-Kramer EAT THIS... DRINK THAT For those of you who do not know what I look like, I am scarcely 5 feet tall, weigh less than 90 pounds (wet) and love to eat. I am one of the fortunate that at almost 40something years old, I can still eat just about whatever I want and it doesn’t go right to my hips or thighs…yet. And I, always being acutely aware of my stature, never take that for granted. As a matter of fact, I think that the older I get, the more thankful – and respectful - I am of my body. My husband, who I still think, after 10 years of being together, is one of the most handsome men I know, has recently gained a few pounds and is really unhappy about it. So, in order to get his body back to the way he’d like it, he’s decided to go on a juice cleanse. I, being the supportive and curious wife that I am, decided that I had to go on this adventure with him. It isn’t such a far stretch for me to juice as I love all things natural and vegetal. I was a vegetarian for 20 years before reconnecting

with a filet mignon some eight years ago. I while I love meat, and just about everything else, there comes a time when you start getting sick of eating (yes, I did say that!). Lately, I have been having a hard time figuring out what to eat, not wanting much of anything and that has led me to the place I am now. I have a terrace garden, where I grow mad amounts of herbs, and now it is time for me to reap the benefits of my labor. I will be drinking the herbs that I’ve grown. Okay, so one can’t live by herbs alone – I went out today and bought a Breville juicer, as well as copious amounts of fruits and veggies to begin the cleanse tomorrow. I’ve watched more juice videos on You Tube than one could ever imagine and we will see what happens. I am really excited. I believe that if I can survive without brownies, Werther’s candies and Hershey’s Kisses for about a week I will be fine. I do not remember the last time I went a whole day without chewing, much less without carbs or sugar. I think it will be the beginning of a whole new me…we’ll see. Shari Lynn Rothstein has been writing about food, wine, lifestyles and fashion for more than 20 years, in New York and Florida. She resides in Aventura.

Did you know that arthritis affects one in every five dogs in the United States? If your dog displays any of the following symptoms, it could be arthritis. Here's more information: • Consistently favoring a limb • Difficulty sitting or standing • Sleeping more • Seeming to have stiff or sore joints • Hesitancy to run or jump • Weight gain • Decreased activity • Behavioral changes If your dog has any of these symptoms for more than two weeks, take him to your veterinarian for an exam. Treatments may include: • Diet changes and exercise to maintain a healthy weight, which will reduce joint stress.

Meow. Whether she's asking for food or attention, your cat can be very demanding and persuasive with just one sound. Interestingly, cats only use that sound with humans. Kittens meow at their mothers if they're cold or hungry, but once they reach adulthood, cats don't meow at each other. Have you deciphered your cat's meows? Here's a guide. Why your cat meows • To greet you: Your cat may greet you with a meow when you arrive home or even when you speak to her. • To get your attention: Cats are generally social animals and will expect a certain amount of attention from you. A meow in this case may mean she wants you to pet her, play with her or talk to her. • To be let in or out: A meow is her way of

• Non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDS), which are the most common form of pharmaceutical treatment for arthritis in dogs. • Over-the-counter treatments, such as pills or food containing glucosamine and chondroitin sulfate, Omega fatty acids, or both. • A combination of prescription NSAIDS and overthe-counter treatments to relieve pain and slow arthritis progression. Never give your dog human medications without checking with your veterinarian. Certain medications can be toxic to dogs, and dosages will vary depending on weight.

requesting (or demanding!) something. If she meows at the door, it's a sure sign she wants to be let in or out. • To ask for food: Cats can get quite vocal at meal time! Besides meowing at her regular meal time, she might also meow when you're in the kitchen, just in case you're willing to feed her again. • To express anxiety: Some cats meow when they're anxious during a thunderstorm, for example, or when they're alone. Does your cat meow too much? If she's being more vocal than normal, take her to the vet. There are various medical conditions that may make her more hungry, thirsty or restless than usual. Respond to your cat's meows with cat food, toys and more from Pet Supermarket.

Originally made into a ballet in 1900, by Marius Petipa, with music by Riccardo Drigo, Harlequinade follows Harlequin and his lover, Columbina, as they outwit Columbina’s father, Cassander who wishes her daughter to marry a rich suitor. Columbina’s friend, Pierretta steals the key away from Pierrot unlocking her house and letting Harlequin in, allowing the two lovers to reunite and more dancing ensues. Twelve professional dancers originally from Japan, China, Australia, Cuba, Peru, Venezuela, and the USA complete the main corps of the company; including medalists at the Korea International Ballet Competition Jun Tanabe and Kaori Fukui, who meet every day at Arts Ballet Theatre of Florida’s studios to be part of this breathtaking season. Performances are scheduled for Oct. 1 and 2 at the Broward Center for the Performing Arts and Oct. 9 at the Aventura Arts & Cultural Center.

‘Just do it - right!’ maximize fitness efficiency ‘BY BARI AUERBACH AND CARLA FREDA

At the gym, you keep bending from side to side - so why is your waist getting so wide? You’re doing hardcore cardio – so why are your arms still so soft? To maximize fitness efficiency, knowing “just do it – right!” training tips may be just what you need to overcome plateaus and achieve optimal results. According to expert personal trainer Carla Freda, a former fitness competitor who works with clients of all ages and fitness levels at Olympia Gym in Aventura, there are common mistakes being made in the gym that can be easily corrected by combining proper form with enlightening information. . ‘Waist’ of time It may be “mind bending” to learn that an exercise to avoid is the side bend - especially when performed with weights. “Many people have the misconception that holding hand weights and doing side bends will trim or tone love handles,” Freda says. “But by performing this exercise, you’re actually doing the exact opposite - you’re thickening your waist!” Back to basics Incorporating back and shoulder resistance exercises into your gym routine can make your waistline appear smaller and help you achieve enviable “v-taper” symmetry. If you do the lat pull-down targeting the latissimus dorsi – one of the largest muscle groups of the back – make sure you “just do it – right!” “I often see people pulling the bar down using only their arms and pulling it down way too low, to about stomach level,” Freda says. “The correct form for lat-pull downs is to grasp the bar with the hands a little wider than shoulder width apart and pull the bar just above the chest, letting the body lean back slightly as you pull down.” Spinning your wheels? Do you want to firm and tone? Everyone answering in the affirmative,

should know that while spinning, running and using cardio machines all burn body fat, it’s weight training that creates the optimal muscle tone men and women want most. “Cardio and weight training are both effective fat burning activities, but many women still hold the old common misconception that they’ll get too big if they lift weights,” Freda says. “The truth is that it’s weight training that can create sexy arms, shapely legs, a flat stomach and an overall appealing shape. Not to mention, the more muscle mass you gain, the more calories you’ll burn - even at rest.” Just eat right!’ Ultimately, beyond what you do in the gym, it’s what’s on your plate that determines how great your physique will look. For example, Freda points out, “You can do all the crunches in the world - but unless you’re eating clean, you won’t lose excess fat and see the muscle underneath. The good news is, if you’re burning body fat by doing cardio and weight training, this will allow you to get away with consuming quite a few more calories!” Just remember… “Keep changing up your workouts, make them challenging and you’ll see results,” Freda says. “Talk to a fitness professional for some tips on new and different routines as well as how to improve your nutrition. Or you can just keep doing what you’re doing – and you’ll just keep getting what you’ve always got!”

Yes, you can recycle last year’s phone directory BY GAYLE LOVE

Even as the world goes digital, receiving new phone books continues to be an annual fall ritual. But recycling old phone books is a year-round activity. “We accept all kinds of paper materials in our single-stream recycling program,” said Kathleen Woods-Richardson, MiamiDade County Department of Solid Waste Management (DSWM) director. “This time of year, we like to remind our residents that they can recycle their old phone books as soon as they get their new ones, but we’ll be happy to take old phone books any time.” No matter what time of year it is done, recycling old phone books is a great way to help the environment. Considering that the DSWM has more than 350,000 recycling customers, and that an estimated 17 trees are saved for every ton of paper that gets recycled, if Miami-Dade residents were to recycle four pounds of old phone books, that would equal more than 700 tons of recycled paper and more than 11,900 trees saved.

“When you recycle your old phone books, you’re not just helping to save trees and paper,” Woods-Richardson said. “You also help save energy, which reduces greenhouse gas emissions; you help save water, and you help save landfill space for items that must be landfilled.” The DSWM provides curbside recycling service to more than 350,000 single-family households in the unincorporated areas of Miami-Dade County as well as all residences in 21 participating municipalities. Area communities include Cutler Bay, Florida City, Palmetto Bay, Pinecrest and South Miami. In 2011, the DSWM’s single-stream recycling program won two awards: a 2011 Achievement Award from the National Association of Counties and a “Recycling and Waste Reduction Award for Outstanding County or City Program (Urban)” from Recycle Florida Today.

Fine wines, fine food and fine art of Chile and Argentina will be showcased at this year’s Wine On Harvest Moon, “Taste, Tango & Toast to the Andes” at the Deering Estate at Cutler. Presented by South BMW on Saturday, Oct. 15, the Estate will be immersed in the art and culture of the region — outdoors on the rolling lawn under the glow of the harvest moon, and indoors throughout the historic Stone House and Richmond Cottage. Food tasting stations arranged with savory dishes are presented by many area restaurants, including Olivo’s, Smith & Wollensky, Sawa, Sugarcane, The Local Craft Food & Drink, Creative Tastes, and Paella Party. Desserts are catered by Whole Foods Coral Gables featuring elegant pastries, fruit tarts, and mounds of dazzling confections. Sugarcane’s Chef Timon Balloo demonstrates his culinary talent center courtyard, while food journalist Riki Altman describes his creative use of Chilean flavors.

For the oenophiles, some of the Chilean wines being tasted are from the renowned Montes Premium Wines; along with Koyle, a 2008 cabernet sauvignon and Terrapura, a 2009 sauvignon blanc. Argentinean wineries participating are Antigal Winery & Estates, Familia Zuccardi, and Bodegas Norton. “We are proud to once again be the presenting sponsor of Wine On Harvest Moon,” said Joe Canaves, general manager of South BMW. “The Deering Estate at Cutler is a center for cultural arts and a focal point for historic preservation in our South Dade community, and we support the Foundation’s efforts wholeheartedly.” The culture of the Andes is celebrated in native dances, with performers dressed in their traditional costumes.

This year’s inaugural “Put On Your Pink Bra” campaign is a part of the American Cancer Society’s Making Strides Against Breast Cancer program. Money raised through these events funds breast cancer research, provides up-to-date breast cancer information, ensures everyone has access to breast cancer screening and treatments – regardless of income – and provides services that improve the quality of life for patients and their families. “Almost everyone has been touched by breast cancer in some way,” said Cynthia Rodriguez, American Cancer Society Area Executive Director. “Florida ranks third in the nation for the number of new breast cancer cases and the number of related deaths. Making Strides Against Breast Cancer celebrates those who have survived and helps ensure future generations of Floridians do not face this life-threatening disease alone. Making Strides truly demonstrates that hope starts with each and every one of us, right in our hometown.” The Making Strides Against Breast Cancer 5K walk supports the American Cancer Society’s unique mission to fight cancer on all four fronts: research, education, advocacy and patient services. Over time, the Society has invested more in breast cancer research than any other voluntary public health organization.
