Aventura Turnberry Jewish Center will collaborate with Pinkberry for a Simchat Torah celebration.
Pinkberry, the number one tart frozen yogurt brand, opened its Aventura location in August. Pinkberry is premium frozen yogurt made with real nonfat yogurt and nonfat milk. It is made with only the highest quality ingredients and is the perfect balance of tangy and sweet, resulting in a refreshing, clean and craveable taste.
On Thursday, October 20, 2011, Pinkberry will sponsor ATJC’s annual Simchat Torah Celebration. Simchat Torah is the holiday that marks the conclusion of the annual reading of the Torah and its beginning again--amid dancing, song, and celebration. Beginning at 6:30pm, the evening will include a service followed by Israeli Folk dancing lead by ATJC’s Cantor Yakov Hadash, Cantor for Ritual and Youth. Pinkberry will be swirling up yogurt and toppings as congregants of all ages dance with real Torahs as well as mini, stuffed Torahs. Adults and children alike are invited to participate in the revelry and gather as a community for this special and sweet celebration.
ATJC: 305-937-1880, email@example.com, www.atjc.org
Pinkberry: Caryn Faulkner at Melissa Libby & Associates, 404.816.3068, firstname.lastname@example.org. In Aventura - 21211 Biscayne Blvd.

Kesher’s 15th Annual Scholarship Luncheon Featuring CHEF MICHELLE BERNSTEIN A Miami native of Jewish and Latin descent, and former professional ballerina and honors graduate of Johnson & Wales University, this passionate culinaire has dazzled diners and critics alike with her sublime cuisine and a personality as bright and vibrant as the Florida sun. “My food is luxurious but approachable,” says Bernstein, a James Beard Award winner (Best Chef South 2008) and author of Cuisine a Latina (Houghton Mifflin Harcourt 2008).
Kesher began in 1995 when local day school administrators, teachers, psychologists and parents recognized the need for a Jewish special education program. They united to form Kesher, an independent, nonprofit 501(c)(3) school for Jewish children with learning disabilities and other developmental delays housed in local day schools.
Our Annual Scholarship Luncheon
will be held on
Tuesday, November 1st 11:00am until 1:00pm
Aventura Turnberry Jewish Center
If you are interest in attending this year’s scholarship luncheon, or for more information on Kesher, please call our office at (30)792-7060. Or you can email us at: email@example.com
