Sincerely yours, Judy Ludin

A blast from the past

Alan Kay of Seminole recently sent the Jewish Press a 1974 photo of a group of south Pinellas Jewish couples who would get together once-a-month for a mystery outing. According to Alan, five couples would be responsible for planning the evening and provide only small hints to what was in store. “We went to dinners, amusement park and tours,” Alan recalls. Besides he and his wife, Laney, Alan remembers these Touch of Class Mystery Club participants (and people you may or may not recognize in the photo): Maxine Bucholtz, Fred Bucholtz, Harriet Cohen, Paul Cohen, Judy Dresden, Gary Dresden, Amy Epstein, Bruce Epstein, Myra Gross, David Gross, Phyllis Hirschfield, Phil Hirschfield, Malina Kanner, Meni Kanner Maureen Kramer, Baron Kramer, Bonnie Kuperman, David Kuperman, Nancy Levitt, Myles Levitt, Sandy Moss, Steve Moss, Teddi Robbins, David Robbins, Pauline Salzman, Barry Salzman, Gilda Singer, Ilene Worman, Michael Worman, Gail Solo and Barry Solo. There are surely others eagle-eyed readers will be able to pick out. Have fun!

Double the celebration

Rabbi Levi and Rebbetzin Miriam Hodakov, directors of Chabad of Clearwater, are pleased to announce the birth of their son, Menachem Mendel. His bris was held on Aug. 11 at the Tabacinic Chabad Center in the company of more than 100 family members and friends. Little Menachem Mendel is named after the Lubavitcher Rebbe, Rabbi Menachem M. Schneerson Meanwhile Rabbi Hodakov celebrated his own milestone ­– his 40th birthday. To mark the special occasion, celebrations were held with friends and family in New York as well as locally at the new Clearwater Chabad Center.

Summer camp volunteers

Matthew and Jeremy Bloom, sons of Charlene Wygodski and Steve Bloom of St. Petersburg, spent a portion of their summer volunteering as counselors at Camp Boggy Creek. The camp, located in Eustis, is a member of SeriousFun Children’s Network, founded by the late actor Paul Newman. The 232-acre camp serves children ages 7-16 who have a chronic or life-threatening illness. The camp offers children the chance to participate in such usual camp activities such as fishing, horseback riding, climbing a ropes tower all the while sharing the experience with other children like themselves. This was Matthew’s second time volunteering and Jeremy hopes to return soon, when his schedule permits.

Sincerely Yours would love to hear from you.
