Tina and Joe Wolf from Chicago, IL, along with family and close friends, visited Miami for their daughter’s Bat Mitzvah. The group, consisting of about 30 people, went to the JCS meal site at the South Shore Community Center in Miami Beach on September 2nd. The children helped serve food and danced and mingled with the approximately 60 seniors who attend the meal site five days a week for a nutritional kosher lunch.
Samantha Wolf was Bat Mitzvahed on September 3rd at Temple Emanu-El. She, along with seniors Miriam Gerchakov and Rita Grossman, lit Shabbat candles together, making it a very special occasion. The Wolfs are deeply involved with the work of the Chicago Federation and this visit was coordinated through the Greater Miami Jewish Federation. Mazel Tov to Samantha and the entire Wolf family and friends on behalf of JCS!
