Peace trek

Rachel Shapiro was one of 12 participants to attend the recent Camino Peace Pilgrimage in Spain. Participants hiked 100 miles of the ancient Spanish Camino de Santiago pilgrimage route together. Six religions were represented and Rachel had the opportunity to teach about the High Holidays and the Tashlich service to the other participants while learning about aspects of their religions. Rachel said it was an extremely enlightening experience. She is currently residing in Scotland as she completes her masters in writing at the University of Edinburgh. Proud parents are Risa and Alan Shapiro of Seminole.

Father’s Day celebration

Four generations of Gootsons gathered recently for a Father’s Day celebration with family patriarch Marshall Gootson last month at Menorah Manor. Along with the local mishpocha, family came in for the celebration from Texas, Georgia and South Florida. Marshall turned 92 on July 17.

Getting to know Israel

Joeli Alana Mckee has become a frequent traveler to Israel in the past year, reports proud grandmother Gail Wohl of South Pasadena. In July 2014, Joeli went on a Birthright trip to Israel, then was one of 40 college students from North America chosen for an Akiva trip last December to explore her Jewish background and history with workshops and walking tours in the Old City of Jerusalem. During that trip she was offered a three-week seminar study for young women, which took place last month. In addition to all of that, Joeli, who will begin her sophomore year at the University of Florida this fall, was in a Birthright group that won a weekend reunion last spring that she attended prior to flying to Israel for the Jewel program experience. Joeli’s proud parents are Amy and Robert Mckee of Tallahassee.
