Blind Visionary

How do you spell inspiration? J-A-C-K-O, as in Virginia A. Jacko, President and CEO of Miami Lighthouse For The Blind. Virginia will speak on her book, “The Blind Visionary”, which explains her journey through blindness, and how it is possible to lead a productive and full life while blind. One of only a handful of blind chief executives in our country, on her watch Miami Lighthouse has become an innovation engine, heralded globally for its leadership and management. From facilitating fully equipped mobile optometric offices traveling to schools throughout Florida, a pre-school created for blind early learners, to providing consulting service for compliant websites for many types of business, Ms. Jacko has achieved an enviable record of outstanding accomplishments.

Virginia will also speak about her recent trip to Israel; visiting institutions for the blind there, providing a unique opportunity to exchange curricula, pedagogy, and share descriptions of their respective facilities, and seeking to identify commonalities and differences in order to learn from each other.

Ms. Jacko will speak on Friday, February 8th, during the evening Shabbat service at Ahavat Olam, a Kendall synagogue located at 10755 SW 112 Street, on the grounds of Killian Pines United Methodist Church. The service begins at 7:45 p.m. Don’t miss this extraordinary and kindhearted dynamo! For further information, please call 305 412-4240 or write

New Local Author Debuts Third Novel

Judy Fisher, former Development Professional in south Florida's Jewish Community recently released her third novel, "Voices from the Ledge." Set in Miami, Judy explores the concept of suicidal ideation (in a fictional circumstance) with a strong positive message. In fact, every book she writes introduces the reader into serious concepts, but in a lighter, fictional way.

Most people think about ending it all at least once in their lives. Judy is glad she didn't. Her writing began as an empty nester blog to fill time that was previously spent tending to her husband and two children. As she wrote and gained followers, she decided to try pure fiction.

She felt that a lot of women, especially of her generation, struggled with many fears, questions and issues growing up in the 1960’s and 1970’s, and many still carry those fears coupled with the shame, embarrassment and skeletons that affect the way they live their lives even today. She was one of them, and her mission is to help one woman, anywoman, anywhere. If that happens, NYT Bestseller list be dxxned!

With two grown children, Judy now resides in Aventura with one four-legged child named Alexander, her husband and her mother. She enjoys reading, writing and live theater.
