You’re covered for a healthy, successful 2015

Fitness workout buddy special.

I’d like to wish everyone in Pinecrest and all around the radius a happy, healthy and successful New Year on behalf of the Alper JCC.

How are those resolutions coming along? Don’t feel bad, some of us are still on our 2014 resolutions. Plus, at the J we have you covered.

From spending more time with family to learning something new or finally getting that push for consistency at the gym, our diverse programming can help fulfill those goals and more.

Our resolution this year is to help you keep yours and you don’t have to do it alone. As humans we tend to feel the need for inspiration, whether it’s a role model or just that extra push from a friend. That is why we are offering a free month for you and a friend just for signing up together.

Each of you will also get two free orientation sessions with a nationally certified personal trainer, plus unlimited group fitness classes to get that medicine ball rolling this year. The enlightenment doesn’t stop at the fitness center.

Adults, feel free to mentally and physically check in to one of our many adult programs and classes. Offering both continuing programs and one-time workshops, you will definitely enlighten yourself with information transferable to real life. One upcoming presentation will help answer questions and educate you on the use of marijuana for medicinal purposes. Medical Marijuana – What Happens Now? takes place Jan. 22 at 1 p.m. in the Art Gallery on campus. Our ongoing programs include Meditate on It, which is a twice-a-month group session where you can break away from the jagged edges of your everyday life. You will be encouraged to become calmer, more focused and have a clearer way of thinking. Like many of our groups, this is free, but a $5 donation is encouraged for this session. Women’s Group is a wonderful circle where women can meet and share experiences, thoughts, passions and camaraderie. Women’s group is considered by many to be the foundation for many new friendships and adventures.

You’re covered for a healthy, successful 2015Life is filled with many challenges, but more and more grandparents have now been given the extra challenge of raising their grandchildren. Grandparents Raising Grandkids is an organized group where fellow grandparents share experiences and wisdom to help one another with this challenge. With all that is going on nowadays on our lovely planet, we bet you have a lot to say about current news and events. Our Contemporary News and Views is just the place to do that on a weekly basis. Guests discuss local, national or global events and trends with the optional aid of a newspaper or magazine article in this lively discussion.

If you would prefer to watch and listen rather than discuss, get tickets to the Russell Theater on campus and check out Stars of David, a funny and captivating new musical revue celebrating the lives of your favorite Jewish public figures, with original music by Broadway’s finest composers and lyricists. Show times are Jan. 28-31 at 7:30 p.m. and Jan-Feb. 1 at 2 p.m.

Whether you come by the JCC to check out our Fitness Center with a buddy for the New Year or to see a show in our Cultural Arts Center, if you haven’t taken a tour of our campus, now is the time to do so. You will surely wonder why you haven’t checked us out sooner. Call 305-271-9000, visit our website or stop by 11155 SW 112 Ave. for more information.

Here’s to a strong 2015, Miami!

  1. This past weekend, over 3000 Americans died of Cancer.

    The need to immediately, completely, legalize Marijuana throughout the world is one of the most pressing moral issues of our time, because of its medical benefits and because of the damage prohibition causes to America and to the world.

    Complete legalization is critical — its vital that there aren't "strings" or "hoops" that Cancer patients and others who need Medical Marijuana are forced to jump through.

    Misplaced Calvinism has led to way too much human suffering and it continues to do so.

    More and more present and former members of law enforcement agree about the need to end prohibition, and have formed a rapidly expanding group of current and former undercover cops, FBI, DEA, prosecutors and Judges, from all over the world, called

    LEAP — Law Enforcement Against Prohibition

    because they've seen the damage prohibition causes to America and the world.

    I'm a Scientist. Not a politician, not a cop.

    But as a Scientist with a strong interest in Cancer research, I feel even more strongly about the need to ensure that no Cancer patient is denied it, because I'm so impressed with its benefits for Cancer patients.

    I urge everyone reading this to PLEASE call and email the Attorney General, the press, Congress and the President today.

    Medical Marijuana helps with Alzheimer's, Autism, Cancer, seizures, PTSD and chronic pain, and has helped many Americans, including many veterans, stop using Alcohol, and hard drugs, both legal and illegal ones.

    Every minute an American dies of Cancer.

    Every 19 minutes an American dies of a prescription drug overdose.

    Many vets become addicted to prescription opiates and die from them.

    NOBODY has ever died from smoking too much pot.

    Cancer patients are seeing remarkable results using high dose Medical Marijuana oil, in many cases achieving complete remission, even for stage 4 cancers — there are many excellent articles on the web, and videos on youtube with patient's personal stories about their experiences with it — and every Cancer patient that uses Marijuana to ease their suffering benefits greatly from doing so.

    It is immoral to leave Marijuana illegal, for anyone, for even a second longer.

    For Cancer patients, its a matter of life and death.

    Cancer patients can't wait.

    Medical Marijuana has an unmatched safety profile, and for people who suffer from so many diseases, of so many kinds, its a medical miracle — and the scientific evidence behind it is rock solid.

    For Cancer patients, Medical Marijuana encourages apoptosis and autophagy of Cancer cells, while leaving normal cells untouched, is anti-angigogenic, anti-proliferative, and is anti-angiogenic.

    Its also synergistic with chemotherapy and radiation therapy, making both more effective.

    For many Cancer patients its meant the difference between life and death.

    For everyone else, its a far safer alternative to Alcohol, and infinitely safer than Cigarettes.

    Either take them off the market too, or legalize Marijuana right now.

    2016 is too far away, Its too long to wait. Every year we lose more Americans to Cancer than died in WWII.

    Between now and the 2016 elections, roughly 1 MILLION Americans will die of Cancer.

    And Its a horrible way to die.
