This Shabbat coincides with the glorious Fourth, America's birthday, and a special time to reflect on the twin blessings of being Jewish and American! More, the twin lights of such traditions spur the hope for the blessings of inclusion, tolerance, acceptance of diversity, among other peoples and nations, rife as they are --- and which we recently tragically witnessed --- with bigotry, and unvarnished hatred resulting in the untimely, violent ending to promising lives. May redemption be near for all who yearn for the normality of creative routine, in health, among loved ones, and peace. Amen.

Friend Stan came to our club house in Brooklyn. Stan was very excited, he said we'd all be rich! He had met a girl from the Five Towns on Long Island who had a bunch of rich girlfriends with whom our friends would be set up. The big date was set in motion.

We climbed in our old beat-up Dodge and headed for the Island. Stunned as we pulled up the driveway to the biggest house we had ever seen, a magnificent lawn and a driveway longer than my whole block! We were awed beyond belief!

We entered. There, in the "smallest" room, stood a spiral staircase, a piano, an elevator, four arm chairs, six couches, two TV's. We never imagined anyone living in a house that big!

Well, our dates did not go well. We were bums from Brooklyn, they were refined, rich college-bound girls. We hated them, they hated us. Guess what! All my friends went on to become wealthy, happily married men; all the women went on to have very unhappy, miserable marriages, then divorced - they struggled their entire lives.

Start poor, get rich.

​Living close to Newtown and having grandkids in the neighboring school district and friends who live in town, this one really​​ hit home. What kind of monsters does our society foster that would kill indiscriminately innocent babies? What is there in our society today that allows such conscience-less slaughter? Is this new? Can we compare the actions of a few homicidal maniacs to state fostered genocidal killings?

I don't believe this could have happened when we were in H.S. We were a post-war era breed of teens who heard the scars of war from our relatives and newscasters. Civics and patriotism and the myth of American greatness and superiority were stressed and SHAME was allowed to be used to keep deviants 'in line'.

A few years ago we were in New Zealand in a small town having tea. On EVERY shop window on the main street were posters (not large, maybe 11x15) with a story of a 15 year old boy who had abused a dog. His picture was on the poster. He was shamed. Today we rarely even HEAR the names of any evildoing teens, we so want to protect their futures. I feel this is wrong. Evil is evil, at any age. Children who exhibit gross antisocial behavior NEED to be isolated to protect the rest. Had Adam Lanza been removed from his home and placed in a safe facility, Sandy Hook would never have happened.

How many other innocent lives need to be lost before we wake up, enforce gun control, stop coddling deviants, and censor ultraviolent games and movies?

A driver over 65 is likely to never drive drunk. Unfortunately, alcohol is only one drug that impairs drivers. Older drivers are the most likely to drive while under the influence of multiple medications. Drugs typically affect people differently at age 60 than at age 20. With age, people tend to gain weight and lose muscle tone, which changes the way chemicals are absorbed. An older body can also take longer to rid itself of drugs.

So if you are taking medication, should you be driving? Most likely, yes. But the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) advises that it’s best to be absolutely sure before you get behind the wheel. While most medications don’t affect driving ability, some prescription and over-the-counter (OTC) medicines can cause reactions that may make it unsafe to drive. These reactions may include sleepiness/drowsiness, blurred vision, dizziness, slowed movement, fainting, inability to focus or pay attention, nausea, and excitability.

Driving while on medication can also be a legal issue. State laws differ but in New York driving under the influence of certain medications (prescription and OTC products) could get you in the same kind of trouble as people caught driving under the influence of alcohol.

Knowing how your medication – or any combination of them – affects your ability to drive is clearly a safety measure involving you, your passengers, and others on the road.

Products that could make it dangerous to drive include some anti-depressants, some cold remedies and allergy products, tranquilizers, sleeping pills, pain relievers, diet pills, drugs containing stimulants such as caffeine, or codeine. It’s also important to know that you should never combine medication with alcohol, which would create a synergistic effect (a greater effect than if each were taken separately).

If you must drive, don’t stop taking your medicines unless told to do so by your doctor. Do talk to your doctor or pharmacist about possible side effects of the medicines you take.

It would also be advisable to carry a list of your medications including names and dosages, just in case of an emergency.

On a beautiful Saturday night in Delray Beach, at 6:30 on the evening March 22, 2014, forty Jeffersonians gathered at Hunan Gardens. Approximately 30 of the 40 were people I had never met before, graduates from 1945, l951, 1958, 1963, etc. At the entrance to the restaurant, orange and blue balloons swayed in the breeze as a reminder of our school colors. Everyone was thrilled to be there and reminisced about their days at Jefferson and how lucky we all feel to have grown up in Brooklyn, most of us poor but, in reality, very rich. It was a very nostalgic evening for all.

All agreed the food was great and the service excellent. Mingling was a little difficult since we did not have a private room, but on a Saturday night in season in Florida, it's quite impossible to get a private room. Upon leaving at about 9:30, everyone thanked me for organizing the evening, expressed they had a great time and wanted to know when we could do it again. Kidding, I said, how about tomorrow for brunch. Realistically, I will be going to Long Island May 9th and probably won't be back till mid-September. And so the great memories of Saturday night in Florida will have to linger at least till October when I return.

I want to thank Natalie Sisselman Lefkowitz for her assistance and Dolores Rosenhain Geringer, our photographer of the evening. I also want to thank Thea Alpert, our Class Administrator, for promoting the event in various media and for distribution of invitations. And thanks to all who helped make this a memorable night.

by:Irma Sherman Latinsky


Dave Spindell: It was nice being with Thomas Jefferson graduates. They were very warm and cordial and easy to be with. We heard stories about the old neighborhood. All Jeffersonians landed on their feet and are lovely people today.

Judy Fielder Levine: Tonight we went to Hunan Gardens in Delray. This was my last hurrah before our return home. It was lovely and the food was delicious. Didn't know too many people other than Irma, Natalie, Delores, Nancy and my two friends Iris '54 and Terry '52 Tenner. A good time was had by all.

Please assist us in our effort to maintain a Web presence that performs in the best possible manner. I am here to present you with quality reading material, help navigate your journey through the halls of TJHS and to assist you in re-connecting with long-time friends. Your submissions and suggestions are welcomed! Please direct correspondence to

MISSING GRADS - I've received hundreds of requests to locate your friends. Be assured that each request remains active until the person is found. It may take a day, a month, even a year or more, but we are working diligently to find them. Lend a hand -- alert '61 Jeffersonians in hiding to come-out-come-out-wherever-you-are!

PROFILED BUT NOT REGISTERED? - Please be advised that a profile exists for all students of TJHS 1961 including those “Missing.” If this is your first visit to our web page, please do not create a second Student File. First consult the 1961 Class Directory which is listed in alphabetical sequence by last name. It is accessible at the top of our page within the TJHS 1961 orange header.

If you are a regular visitor but have not registered, please do so by assigning your private password. Without a registered password you will not be able to gain entry to your file or edit - nor will you be unable to contact students who elect to maintain privacy - nor will you be able to post messages or become involved with many activities available to those who are. Your Password is confidential - you and the Classreport organization alone maintain such information. Assign your private password: refer to the "Sign In" box (upper right), then click "Lost Password" and, upon prompt, enter your "PW." Then click "Save."

SOCIAL LINKS (i.e. Facebook, et al.) have been added to many profiles by the respective registrants. The links you post should lead where directed. In instances where the link was not added correctly, it leads to a dead zone. Accordingly, we have deleted the invalid link and added a notation in your respective Bios. Please test your links before posting.

ABOUT YOUR PROFILE - We have completed yet another phase in updating personal biographies. Your profile now includes the Honor Societies, Service Clubs and Extra Curricular Activities (ECA) you performed for our Alma Mater. Learn more about your role and those of the young adults with whom you forged friendships in high school because of your services to our school. Check out biographies on Classreport.

PRACTICING EMAIL COURTESY - When you forward e-mail received from others, please delete the forwarding history, which includes the e-mail addresses of EVERYONE listed. It is a courtesy to others who may not wish to have their e-mail addresses sent throughout the Internet. Erasing the history helps prevent spammers from mining addresses, computer fraud, identity theft and viruses. Always use the "BCC" feature when sending e-mail.

Conversely, when preparing e-mail which originates with you, so as to maintain the privacy of those to whom your communication is forwarded, it is necessary that you "BCC" everyone rather than publish private contact information for all to see. "BCC" is a standard feature and represents "Blind Carbon Copy." The feature is an option in email preparation. Please use it.

THE CLASS OF '61 has officially entered the world of TECHNOLOGY . Reunion invitations will be available to you on this web page and via e-mail. If you have not provided us with your e-mail address, kindly add it to your Classreport profile. Now is also the time to update your profile and correct all outdated data. It is your decision whether to go private or public with this information so that others may reach out to you; however, be assured that if you wish privacy, your email address will not be viewable to anyone but the Office; plus, my outgoing e-mails are always distributed as "blind copies." When someone requests your e-mail address, it is my policy to drop you a note requesting permission to share.

Note: Our presence on Classreport will continue strong, as will the continuation of the TJHS Alumni Association and the TJHS Alumni Newsletter.
