On Friday, June 20 at 7:30 p.m., South Florida’s Second Avenue Jewish Chorale will perform new and treasured liturgical pieces at Temple Israel of Greater Miami for the Shabbat evening service. The Second Avenue Jewish Chorale, now in its third season of delighting South Florida audiences, will perform music of various styles, from the Renaissance period to the twenty-first century. The Chorale’s Founding Artistic Director, Coreen Duffy, will conduct the ensemble in honor of the congregation’s Annual Meeting and Installation Shabbat, with Temple Israel’s Music Director, Dr. Alan Mason, at the piano, and Rabbi Cantor Mark H. Kula of Bet Shira Congregation as soloist. The musical and spiritual service is free and open to the public, and will be broadcast and streamed live on WZAB radio 880-AM and on Temple Israel’s website, http://www.templeisrael.net. The Chorale sings at Temple Israel as it prepares for its debut performance at the prestigious North American Jewish Choral Festival in New York’s Hudson River Valley in the Catskills on July 22, 2014. The Festival, sponsored by the Zamir Choral Foundation, selected the Second Avenue Jewish Chorale as a featured performing ensemble for the twenty-fifth anniversary of its annual summer conference. The Chorale’s Temple Israel performance on June 20 will feature its Festival repertoire. The Second Avenue Jewish Chorale, now in its third season, is an auditioned, community concert choir affiliated with the Jewish cultural organization Next@19th. The Chorale draws both Jewish and non-Jewish singers and performs at venues throughout South Florida, performing choral repertoire reflecting the breadth of the Jewish experience, from the European Renaissance to American and Israeli popular genres. Building on a rich Jewish choral tradition of beloved and unfamiliar literature, the Second Avenue Jewish Chorale affirms the imperative to rejuvenate and preserve classic repertoire while celebrating and promoting new Jewish choral music now and for the next generation.

What is the caravan? The Tzofim Friendship Caravan is celebrating over 40 years of bringing excitement, energy and friendship to North America! Founded in 1973, the first Caravan came to the United States to bring a message of hope and peace for Israel. Since that first Caravan, the program has grown to four different Caravan travelling across North America, from New York to California to Wyoming and Toronto.
Each Caravan is made up of a group of five girls and five boys and their two leaders. They are chosen to be members of the Caravan based on their maturity, fluency in English, and of course their talent in the performing arts. After several rounds of competitive auditions andinterviews, the scouts spend a year training and rehearsing for their exciting summer in North America.

The Jewish Volunteer Center (JVC) of the Greater Miami Jewish Federation is assisting Jewish Community Services (JCS) in their need to find volunteers to visit Holocaust Survivors and homebound seniors. This is an opportunity to help seniors who need a friendly visit and a helping hand. JCS’ Two’s Company program is a volunteer service helping Holocaust Survivors and other elderly in Miami-Dade who need a friend. Currently looking for volunteers to pay visits in Miami Beach, Sunny Isles Beach, North Miami Beach and Aventura.
As a volunteer, all you need is a warm, caring heart and a few hours to share with an elderly person in our community who may be homebound and isolated or unable to get around independently. Hours are flexible, based on your availability, and can take as little as a few hours once or twice a week.
You may choose from a variety of activities: • Provide Companionship and conversation • Maintain a schedule of reassuring phone contacts • Escort a senior to a religious service or doctor’s appointment • Take a walk • Share mutual interests, crafts and hobbies • Use your imagination and creativity • Go grocery shopping • Help host a social get-together
This is an extremely fulfilling volunteer opportunity if you enjoy the company of very appreciative seniors.
