The event will include a host of surprises and fun including a bounce house, cotton candy machine, DJ, food trucks, pie-eating contests, leadership tables, a visit from Captain America (and other guests!) and more! The event precedes BARCLAY’s production of ASSASSINS; an American Musical starring Cameron Kasky as Lee Harvey Oswald at 2pm at the Boca Black Box Theatre in Picadilly Square.
This VeteransDay, November 11th will be the 100 year anniversary of the Armistice Deal. This deal was signed in 1918 on the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month, ending World War I.

We welcome you to celebrate and stand in unity and solidarity with us and our community.

On November 6, 2016, approximately 30 women, teen and child members and friends of Congregation B’nai Israel will cut and donate their hair at the second biannual “Grow to Give” event. The hair will be made into wigs for women and children undergoing cancer treatment. The women have been growing out their hair for several months in preparation. Hundreds of people are expected to attend to watch the hair cutting ceremony and enjoy the family-centered activities.
“Grow to Give” is the brainchild of Rabbi Marci R. Bloch of Congregation B’nai Israel. The participants, including Rabbi Bloch, have grown their hair out and will donate it to either Locks of Love (10 inches) or Pantene Beautiful Lengths (8 inches). Rabbi Bloch started Grow to Give in 2014 after losing yet another member of the synagogue to cancer. All proceeds from the event will go to cancer research. Hairstylists will donate their time to cut hair and provide blowouts to the donors.
In addition, event sponsor, Bauman Medical Group, a hair restoration center for both men and women, will be providing information about how the wigs are made for cancer patients. There will be family activities, including making your own super hero masks, mini manicures, face painting, and much more. DJ Beauty and the Beat will entertain the crowd and play games with the kids, lunch will be available for a $10 donation, and there will be a raffle with amazing prizes for additional donations.

Local author Haley Marguerite Mariano will be discussing and signing her new book Charlie Takes an Adventure at Loggers’ Run Middle School on November 30th.

The book is also available for pre-order on Amazon at $19.95, so the price at the event is a bargain.
The book is about an adventurous penguin named Charlie. Charlie has no one to play with, nothing to do and winter lasts a real long time. Charlie hops on a plane to Florida hoping that will make him happy. But while he is in Florida, on numerous occasions, his trip doesn’t go the way Charlie planned. He seeks the advice of a fortune teller hoping she can point him in the right direction.
