Now through September 15, 2012, Seasons at the Tradition banquet facility, now with two locations in Connecticut, is offering a 10-percent discount on event reservations booked for January or February 2013. This discount is valid for parties of 30 people or more and applies to wide assortment of food menu selections and to several events. Along with the discount, a $ 50 gift card is given to those booking a winter event at Seasons; the card, issued the day of the event, can be applied to other occasions or in Seasons’ restaurant.
Because the popularity of the Wallingford Seasons at the Tradition location has grown over the years, a second banquet facility at Oak Lane in Woodbridge, Connecticut opened in 2012. The 10-percent discount and $ 50 gift card additionally apply to the new facility. Seasons at Oak Lane offers a full service restaurant and banquet hall that mirrors the high level of atmosphere and taste as the Wallingford location.
The Wallingford Seasons offers two banquet halls, which can be combined through moveable walls into a spacious dining area to accommodate larger parties of up to 230 people. Arched windows provide a view of The Tradition Golf Club, while non-flip hardwood floors allow a dance floor to be nearly anywhere in Seasons’ banquet halls. The facility additionally includes a dining room, ample bar area, private bridal powder rooms, and sitting areas, along with Chiavari chairs for wedding receptions. For indoor winter events, Seasons’ facilities offer comfort and appealing décor for picture taking or videography.
While Seasons at the Tradition specializes in wedding receptions, the venue’s versatile facilities and grounds benefit corporate events, business seminars, banquet parties, anniversary celebrations, bar and bat mitzvahs, special birthdays, showers, and christenings. Whether for a winter wedding reception in January or February or corporate retirement event, Seasons provides flexible and customized menus, unique dining table decor, cocktail party setups, and freshly prepared plate dining.
Seasons is highly rated for menus that include beef, pasta, seafood, or chicken with a wide array of starters such as soups, salads, cheese plates, and hors d’oeuvres. Seasons is also widely known for fresh food menu selections with a high priority on customer service and accommodation, which includes children’s menus. Event planners combine every detail to make gatherings and events successful and memorable. Seasons is currently taking reservations for winter events.
Graduation is right around the corner, and many proud parents are thinking about their son or daughter’s graduation celebration. Many will consider using a DJ for entertainment. However, for most parents their only experience hiring a DJ was for their own wedding, which may or may not have been a perfect experience. The reason that people have a hard time choosing the right DJ is simple. They often do not have good information about the DJ industry, which is a very fragmented market filled with many “weekend warriors”, amateurs, and “wannabes”.
For many reasons, the DJ industry is very fragmented, with DJs of wildly different skill levels. When amateur DJs ruin a party, they inadvertently put a “black eye” on the industry, and the effect is felt industry-wide. There are many competent professional DJs out there, but finding them takes a little know-how and understanding of the business.
Over 80% Of The Success Of Your Party Hinges On The DJ Or Entertainment You Hire:
Many parents view hiring their DJ as one of the lowest priorities on their list, and that is a huge mistake. Uninformed parents often hire their entertainment under the wrong guidelines, and inadvertently put their parties at risk. Knowing the difference between professional DJs and the services they offer make the biggest impact on the success of their event.
Make Sure The DJ You Choose Has Tons Of Experience With Your Type Of Party:
There are major differences in types of DJs out there, and you must know how to qualify the right one for your party. No two DJs are alike. The DJ industry as a whole is a very fragmented market. You must know how to “qualify” your DJ, and make sure they can provide the service that your party requires.
Ask The DJ The Right Questions To Qualify Their Abilities and Experience:
There are ways to determine if a DJ is right for you, as simple as asking one question. Their answer to this question almost always will reveal a DJs true abilities and experience.
Choosing your DJ is among the most important aspect of your party plans, and the right DJ should make your party plans a pleasure. An expert DJ will share his knowledge with you, help flesh out your ideas, and make your planning stress-free. When your party is thoroughly planned out, and your entertainment is left to a professional DJ, it leaves you free to enjoy every moment of your party!

An integral part of the Armonk community for more than three decades, the Canyon Club has been renamed Brynwood Golf & Country Club. The new name heralds a new era for the 156-acre private country club.
Last month, the Club’s ownership hired Troon Golf to manage the Club. Headquartered in Scottsdale, Arizona, Troon Golf is the world’s preeminent golf management company, managing more than 200 golf courses in 31 states and 26 countries. Troon Golf’s management portfolio includes such renowned properties as the Westin Turnberry Resort (site of the 2009 Open Championship) in Ayrshire, Scotland, Troon North Golf Club in Scottsdale, Arizona, and the Ocean Club on Paradise Island, Bahamas. In addition, 38 of its golf courses appear on various golf industry “Top 100” lists.
New ownership and Troon already have begun implementing a phased improvement plan, which will include:
Interior renovation of the 65,000-square-foot Clubhouse, as designed by the award-winning architectural and planning firm of Hart Howerton. Hart Howerton has designed clubhouses for some of the region’s most prestigious country clubs, including Westhampton Country Club, Atlantic Golf Course, Tuxedo Golf Club and Sebonack Golf Club.
Upgrading of tennis and pool facilities, including the addition of new casual poolside dining and an outdoor grill.
Elevation of the Club’s golf experience with a new fleet of Club Car golf carts and a commitment to golf instruction and player development.
•Addition of new fitness area and equipment and other recreational amenities.
•A full calendar of golf, tennis, recreational, social, fitness and family activities.
To accommodate this improvement plan, the Club will be closed this winter and will reopen in April.
Annual dues for Brynwood Golf & Country Club are: $ 11,000 (Family Full Membership); $ 8,800 (Single Full Membership); $ 7,700 (Senior Executive Membership); $ 6,600 (Young Executive Membership); $ 4,400 (Sports Family Membership) and $ 3,300 (Sports Single Membership).

Members of Brynwood Golf & Country Club also become members of the Troon Advantage program, which features exclusive access and reduced fees at participating private clubs where access is typically unavailable to unaccompanied guests. The program also provides access to both Troon Golf daily fee and resort facilities at discounted rates.
Located just minutes off I-684 on Route 22, Brynwood Golf & Country Club features a lushly landscaped 18-hole golf course; a fully-amenitized 65,000 square-foot clubhouse; Har-Tru tennis courts and a full-sized swimming pool. The clubhouse provides catering services for private and corporate functions, wedding receptions and bar/bat mitzvahs with ballroom seating for more than 350 guests. There is also an outdoor cocktail terrace overlooking the golf course and surrounding hills featuring spectacular sunsets.
“The renovations and new membership policy at Brynwood Golf & Country Club will heighten the member experience and clearly position us as the best value in private club membership in the Westchester-Fairfield area. We recently started our new membership drive for 2010, and have already seen a tremendous response,” said Jeffrey B. Mendell, a principal in the Club’s new ownership and a resident of Armonk. He added, “We are very confident that, with the changes now underway, Brynwood Golf & Country Club will emerge as the private club of choice for area residents and families looking for attractive pricing in a full service country club, with outstanding golf and tennis, upgraded facilities, first-rate food and beverage and many other amenities and programs.”

Hurricane Sandy left many victims in its wake and one of those unfortunate buildings was The Chabad Neshama Center. The Center, located in Brighton Beach, was home to many programs including a synagogue and a Hebrew school geared towards preschool-aged children. However, with all the tragedy that Hurricane Sandy brought to the East Coast, it also brought a lot of hope . ZHL Group, a Brooklyn based general construction company offered to rebuild The Chabad Neshama center pro bono. It was the work of the ZHL Group and local dedication that led to Yevgeniy Lvovskiy, the proud CEO of the ZHL Group, receiving a Community Builder Award.
The Chabad Neshama Center has had a solid reputation in the Russian Jewish community serving Brooklyn for years. The Chabad Neshama Center offers educational services to a broad age spectrum from preschool all the way up to adult-learning. The Chabad Neshama Center keeps the Jewish culture celebrated with a Matza bakery, Kaddish services, and Kabbalah seminars. Social services are available for those in need which include counseling and prison visitations. They also provide entertainment. The Chabad Neshama Center has camps, holiday celebrations, bat/bar mitzvahs, and a variety of other events available for all members of the family.
When Hurricane Sandy hit New York on October 29th, 2012, its devastation was unbearable. It was the largest Atlantic hurricane of all time and the deadliest of the season. The damage it caused the United States was estimated to be $ 65 billion dollars. The Chabad Neshama Center was nearly destroyed in the impact. Rabbi Shimmy Silver describes how quickly the hurricane demolished the center, “The door just popped into the center as if it was made of paper. In rushed the water and sand. In ten minutes, everything we worked so hard to build was destroyed.”
The ZHL Group is no stranger to helping the Brooklyn community. CEO Yevgeniy Lvovskiy recently received another award for excellence in building and design from the Queens & Bronx building association for work of the ZHL Group on the design for a maritime training facility for the highly revered FDNY. The maritime facility is expected to receive widespread use to train firefighters how to fight disasters on ships which can be very different and more unpredictable than land fires.
The motto of the ZHL Group, “building today for a better tomorrow,” perfectly encapsulates the initiative taken in The Chabad Neshama Center renovation. So many buildings and programs were destroyed, delayed, or altered as Sandy ran its course that many families were affected. The ZHL Group designed, provided materials, and rebuilt The Chabad Neshama Center in the hopes that Brooklyn families would know that their future was bright and their community would not be defeated. The The Chabad Neshama Center is currently open and running its community programs thanks to the charitable work of the ZHL Group. Yevgeniy Lvovskiy was honored to receive the Community Builder Award, but he was even more honored that he could help out the Russian Jewish community.

In a poll of 1,874 Jews conducted by Laszlo Strategies for Jerusalem U, of Jews ages 18-29, 45 percent attended a Jewish day school or yeshiva, 56 percent went to Jewish summer camp, 81 percent had a bar/bat mitzvah, 46 percent were involved in a Jewish youth group before college, while 10 percent had not done any of these. Interestingly, older Jews (50+) were far less likely to have participated in many of the same activities, 24 percent attended a Jewish day school or yeshiva, 36 percent went to Jewish summer camp, 58 percent had a bar/bat mitzvah, 43 percent were involved in a Jewish youth group before college, and 23 percent had not done any of these.
Amy Holtz, President of Jerusalem U commented, “We are seeing that Jewish parents are working hard to give their children the Jewish education they may not have gotten for themselves when they were growing up. Clearly it is a high priority.”
Still, while younger Jews show a strong connection to Israel and Judaism, it is at weaker levels than older Jews. Fully 87 percent of Jews polled over the age of 50 strongly agree that “caring about Israel is a very important part of my being Jewish.” Ten percent somewhat agree, 2 percent disagree and 1 percent were not sure. However, Jews ages 18-29 strongly agree at 66 percent, 25 percent somewhat agree, 6 percent disagree and 3 percent were not sure. Just over half of Jews polled over the age of 50 strongly agree and 33 percent somewhat agree that, “North American and Israeli Jews share a common destiny.” Only 37 percent of young Jews (18-29) strongly agree and 39 percent somewhat agree.
Of all of the Jews polled, 94 percent agree that, “Israel is the spiritual center of the Jewish people.” Only 14 percent agree that “If Israel no longer existed it would not greatly impact my life.”
When asked which of four statements was most accurate, “when you think about what Judaism means to you,” fully 65 percent including 54 percent of Jews age 18-29, agree with the statement that, “Judaism is central to my life, to the life I want for my family and it factors in to my daily life and decisions.” Nearly one-third of those 18-29 favored, “Judaism is important but it doesn’t generally impact my daily life, mostly it’s a family and cultural thing for me.” Only 11 percent of these young Jews polled chose, “Judaism is not currently central to my life, but I want it to play a more significant role,” and last at 3 percent was, “I was raised Jewish but frankly it just isn’t that important to me today or in how I see my future.”
The poll was done online and was sent to email addresses associated with Jerusalem U as well as several other Jewish databases. A link to the survey was shared broadly via social media and individuals were encouraged to complete the survey to be entered to win $ 500 to go to a charity of their choosing. The sample is, therefore, more likely to be of Jews who are somehow engaged in the community rather than in a random sample. However, because the sample size is so large, the differences between age groups and other key demographics are statistically valid.
The winner of the $ 500 donation will be chosen before Rosh Hashanah.
Interestingly, the Jews who responded to the survey are in many ways connected and engaged but not necessarily observant. Jewish respondents were 27 percent Orthodox, 33 percent Conservative, 16 percent Reform, 1 percent Reconstructionist, 15 percent “Just Jewish”, and 8 percent “Culturally Jewish.”
The poll shows that over two-thirds of Jewish respondents felt that the biggest barrier to encouraging young Jews to be proud of being Jewish and more connected to Israel was that, “young Jews don’t see it as relevant to their lives.” More so than expense, interest, time constraints or lack of anti-Semitism.
“It is vital to win the hearts and minds of young Jews to stay involved in the Jewish community,” said Rabbi Raphael Shore, Founder and CEO of Jerusalem U. “We know that young Jews need to see that Judaism is relevant to their lives. That is why we offer them the opportunity to hear from leading Middle East experts and world-renowned authors, educators and speakers, including Chief Rabbi Lord Jonathan Sacks, Professor Alan Dershowitz, Dr. Tal Ben-Shahar, Mayim Bialik, Elliot Gould and Rabbi Joseph Telushkin who can help their lives in concrete ways.”
Only 4 percent believe that if Israel no longer existed there would be less anti-Semitism in North America versus 33 percent who believe it would be about the same amount and 63 percent who believe there would be more anti-Semitism.
And nearly 90 percent and 84 percent of young Jews agree that, “having a Jewish spouse/partner is very important to me” and 93 percent that, “raising my children to be Jewish is very important to me.”
“Jerusalem U shows Israel and Judaism through a fresh lens, and it’s catching on. That is why our staff has expanded to over 50 talented people and our budget to approximately $ 2.6 million. We are working hard to make young Jews proud of being Jewish and to feel connected to Israel,” commented Shore.
Jerusalem U commissioned the survey in order to check in with stakeholders on their impact so they can continue to strengthen their offerings and understand their target audience better. Of individuals who were familiar with Jerusalem U or had taken one of their classes, fully 94% think that Jerusalem U is effective in “making young Jews feel proud of being Jewish and more connected to Israel.” Said Holtz, however, “We always strive to improve and Rosh Hashanah is the time to recommit ourselves to progress.”
Jerusalem U is a leading online portal for Jewish distance learning with a vision to transform Jewish and Israel education for the 21st Century and to inspire, unify, and activate people of all ages as passionate supporters of Israel and the Jewish people.
Founded in 2009 by Rabbi Raphael Shore, Jerusalem U is breaking new ground in outreach by creating original feature films, engaging film classes and courses, and experiential and interactive learning, all distributed via the internet, social media, television, grassroots campaigns and partnerships with mainstream pro-Israel and outreach organizations.
Jerusalem U’s critically-acclaimed film, “Israel Inside,” has been seen by millions of viewers on PBS, Comcast on Demand, El Al flights and in hundreds of screenings around the world. The organization is currently working on two follow-up films.
Jerusalem U has produced four 10-hour, online multimedia courses, has graduated more than 4,500 students, and is responsible for over 125,000 hours of Jewish and Israel learning by students worldwide. Jerusalem U’s film education courses are currently available for college students, high schools, adult education and organizations.
