Sincerely yours, Judy Ludin

Go team go

Eileen Levin of Belleair has a double reason to kvell: she has two grandchildren participating in the Maccabiah Games for the United States in Israel in July. Brandon Levin, the son of Dr. Andrew and Roxana Levin of Ozona, will be playing futsal (indoor soccer). He will be a senior at the University of Florida in the fall. Brad Levin, the son of Dr. Richard and Robbie Levin of Hunt Valley, MD, who will be a freshman at Massachusetts Institute of Technology this fall, will be competing in squash. The two cousins are looking forward to the opportunity to participate in the games, often called the Jewish Olympics, and will be very happy to see each other in Israel. Both sets of parents and siblings will be going to cheer them on.

Job well done

Sharon LeVine Rosenthal of Houston, Texas, was named Houston’s outstanding congregational teacher of the year. The award came with $1,500 to use for a Jewish educational experience, $500 for her use and $300 for educational materials for her religious school. Proud parents are Dr. Morris and Marilyn LeVine of St. Petersburg.

Mitzvah suggestion

Kim Goldberg and Mike Kushner of Seminole, recently returned from a trip to Cuba, which they said, “was eye opening, and a (not so gentle) reminder of how fortunate we are for what we have here.” They visited synagogues in Havana, which distribute all donations to local families in need, the couple said. Goldberg and Kushner suggested that anyone planning future trips to the island nation take a suitcase or two with clothing, toiletries, toys, and school supplies to deliver to the synagogues for distribution.
