Loxahatchee River Canoe Trip
When: Sunday, November 13, 8:30 am at the carpool site or 9:30 am at the put-in site. Please use the restroom before parking at the put-in site (see “Directions” below).
What: This is Mosaic’s favorite canoe trip. Don’t miss it! The Loxahatchee River is the only river in Florida designated as “wild and scenic” by the U.S. Government. We begin our paddle in the narrow, winding section of the river, bounded by oak trees and sable palms. The wildlife abounds, and the canoeing is fairly technical, but doesn’t require much exertion. We’ll start out with a brief paddling lesson before getting on the river. After canoeing for a few miles, we’ll stop for a picnic lunch at Trapper Nelson’s old homestead, now a historical site. There’s usually a ranger to offer a guided tour through the property. After lunch we’ll continue through the open expanse of the lower Loxahatchee. The lower portion is wide and sunny, so enjoy a leisurely paddle back on the second half of the trip. Along the way, expect to see a variety of wildlife, including spotted ospreys, painted turtles, water snakes, wood storks, barred owls, woodpeckers, and some gators. Once we reach our “take-out” point at Jonathan Dickenson State Park, we will be picked up by Canoe Outfitters, and shuttled back to our cars. You may want to join us afterward for a well deserved dinner at a nearby restaurant.
Where: Canoe Outfitters at Riverbend Park, 9060 Indiantown Road, Jupiter, 561-746-7053.
Carpool Site: Meet at the Wyndham Garden Hotel just west of I-95 on Glades Road. Take I-95 to Glades Road (Exit #45) in Boca Raton, and go west. Go under I-95, and make the first U-turn, to come back east on Glades. The Wyndham Garden Hotel will be on the right, just before you get to I-95. Meet in the parking lot at 8:00 am. We will leave at 8:15 am sharp!
Directions: Take the Turnpike north to exit 116 west, or I-95 north to exit 87 B. Go west on Route 706 (Indiantown Road) for approximately 1-1/4 miles. You will see Riverbend Park and Canoe Outfitters on the left. That is where the canoe office, port-o-lets, and put-in site are. Please use the bathroom before you park at the put-in site if possible, since there will be no other good opportunity till lunch, and they only have port-o-lets. There is a bathroom at the McDonald’s on Route 706 east of the Turnpike.
Bring: Sunscreen, hat, picnic lunch, snacks, lots of water, insect repellent, dry bag if you have one, and change of clothes for dinner.
Cost: Members $33, Non-members $38. Cost includes canoe rental, shuttle from take-out site, park fee, and light snacks.
Contact: Limit 40. RSVP requested. Please contact Howard Fleischer at 561-707-9656 or firstname.lastname@example.org, or Rick Dronsky at 954-435-3388 or email@example.com

Each year, the Jewish Volunteer Center (JVC) of the Greater Miami Jewish Federation provides hundreds of opportunities for members of Miami’s Jewish community to come together and help make a difference. For the second year in a row, the JVC is partnering with the Holocaust Memorial of the Greater Miami Jewish Federation to continue the remarkable Young Lion of Judah program a youth-oriented, Jewish philanthropy initiative, pairing more than two dozen B’nai Mitzvah students with Holocaust survivors.
This unique program runs from November 13, 2011 through February 5, 2012. Twenty-five students and 25 Holocaust survivors will meet monthly on Sundays for different meaningful experiences surrounding Holocaust education. In addition to the meetings, each student will volunteer on his or her own schedule, visiting with the survivor and building a new relationship and friendship.
Each youngster will also be asked to recognize his or her partner during their Bar or Bat Mitzvah service and make a gift of $180 to the Annual Greater Miami Jewish Federation/UJA Campaign. Youngsters will receive a certificate of completion and, as a special memento, a beautiful Young Lion of Judah gift – a silver bracelet for girls and silver talit clips for boys.
“This is truly a wonderful way for these young adults to not only learn firsthand about the Holocaust but to honor these survivors, whom we all consider to be heroes,” said Holocaust Memorial Executive Director Sharon Horowitz.
For an application or for more information, contact JVC Director Lori Drutz at 786.866.8414 or Volunteer@JewishMiami.org.
