Dear Friends:

The October newsletter marks the beginning of Autumn. Days are still sunny, warm and beginning to have cool breezes. Leaves be-
gin to change colors and an occasional breeze reminds us that Autumn is with us.

Our annual Rosh Hashonah Luncheon and concert was an excellent community celebration. Rabbi Shem Tov lead us through both
story and prayer and concluded with the traditional blowing of the Shofar. We were also joined by Assemblyman Dinowitz who also
brought L’Shana Tova wishes from Council person Koppell.

As many of you know, Toby has been of the office since September 4th and if all goes well, will return this month. We wish her
health and a speedy recovery.

We are pleased to announce that Simon Senior Center has renewed its partnership with Columbia and Yeshiva Universities and
started a new one with New York University. I would like to WELCOME our three new graduate social work students: Mr. Evan
Rosenhouse from Yeshiva University, Wurzweiler School of Social Work and Mr. Eric Wong from Columbia University and Ms.
Adiva Eliach from New York University. In addition, Mr. Bradley Gardener, a Ph.D. candidate from the City University of New
York, will meet with members to learn about “What the Bronx was like when the Grand Concourse was Jewish.”

The Simon Senior Center Ι Riverdale YM-YWHA received a Café Europa mini-grant from the Conference on Jewish Material
Claims Against Germany (Claims Conference). This program will be designed for Holocaust survivors and Jewish victims of Nazi
persecution. It is anticipated to begin in October. More information will be provided in the near future.

September has been a wonderful month for our members in terms of trips, music, movies and informative lectures. We went on a
Yonkers Pier Boat ride which featured DJ/dancing, Apple-picking at Demarest Farms with a visit to the Hermitage Museum, and
Atlantic City. Concerts featured Chris Merwin for the Birthday concert and Eliot Goldberg for Rosh Hashanah. It should be noted
that the Riverdale Press featured the Improvisational Drama Club led by Yoni Oppenheim.

Our movies have been fabulous with such features as Confessions of a Shopaholic, City Hall, Then She Found Me, The Turning
Point and A Letter to Three Wives.

In the spirit of enhancing our program services and providing an opportunity for members to discuss   Inside this issue:
personal issues during stressful times, we offer one-to-one conversations with Jacob, Adiva, Eric,    Lectures and Activities         2

HEALTH AND WELLNESS
Submitted by Audrey Leitner


A professor at CCNY for a physiological psych class told his class about bananas. He said the expression
'going bananas' is from the effects of bananas on the brain. Read on:


                      Never, put your banana in the refrigerator!!!
                                          This is interesting.
              After reading this, you'll never look at a banana in the same way again.
 Bananas contain three natural sugars - sucrose, fructose and glucose combined with fiber. A
            banana gives an instant, sustained and substantial boost of energy.

Research has proven that just two bananas provide enough energy for a strenuous 90-minute
 workout. No wonder the banana is the number one fruit with the world's leading athletes.

But energy isn't the only way a banana can help us keep fit. It can also help overcome or pre-
 vent a substantial number of illnesses and conditions, making it a must to add to our daily
                                            diet.
Depression: According to a recent survey undertaken by MIND amongst people suffering from de-
pression, many felt much better after eating a banana. This is because bananas contain tryptophan, a
type of protein that the body converts into serotonin, known to make you relax, improve your mood and
generally make you feel happier.


PMS: Forget the pills - eat a banana. The vitamin B6 it contains regulates blood glucose levels, which
can affect your mood.


Anemia : High in iron, bananas can stimulate the production of hemoglobin in the blood and so helps
in cases of anemia.


Blood Pressure: This unique tropical fruit is extremely high in potassium yet low in salt, making it
perfect to beat blood pressure. So much so, the US Food and Drug Administration has just allowed the
banana industry to make official claims for the fruit's ability to reduce the risk of blood pressure and
stroke.
Brain Power: 200 students at a Twickenham (Middlesex) school ( England ) were helped through
their exams this year by eating bananas at breakfast, break, and lunch in a bid to boost their brain
power. Research has shown that the potassium-packed fruit can assist learning by making pupils more
alert.
Constipation: High in fiber, including bananas in the diet can help restore normal bowel action,
helping to overcome the problem without resorting to laxatives.


Hangovers: One of the quickest ways of curing a hangover is to make a banana milkshake, sweet-
ened with honey.. The banana calms the stomach and, with the help of the honey, builds up depleted
blood sugar levels, while the milk soothes and re-hydrates your system.
Heartburn: Bananas have a natural antacid effect in the body, so if you suffer from heartburn, try
eating a banana for soothing relief.
Morning Sickness: Snacking on bananas between meals helps to keep blood sugar levels up and
avoid morning sickness.



                                                     6
HEALTH AND WELLNESS
(Continued)



Mosquito bites: Before reaching for the insect bite cream, try rubbing the affected area with the
inside of a banana skin. Many people find it amazingly successful at reducing swelling and irritation.


Nerves: Bananas are high in B vitamins that help calm the nervous system.

Overweight and at work? Studies at the Institute of Psychology in Austria found pressure at work
leads to gorging on comfort food like chocolate and chips. Looking at 5,000 hospital patients, researchers
found the most obese were more likely to be in high-pressure jobs. The report concluded that, to avoid
panic-induced food cravings, we need to control our blood sugar levels by snacking on high carbohydrate
foods every two hours to keep levels steady.


Ulcers: The banana is used as the dietary food against intestinal disorders because of its soft texture
and smoothness. It is the only raw fruit that can be eaten without distress in over-chronicler cases. It
also neutralizes over-acidity and reduces irritation by coating the lining of the stomach.


Temperature control: Many other cultures see bananas as a 'cooling' fruit that can lower both
the physical and emotional temperature of expectant mothers. In Thailand , for example, pregnant
women eat bananas to ensure their baby is born with a cool temperature.
Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD):                        Bananas can help SAD sufferers because they con-
tain the natural mood enhancer tryptophan.


Smoking &Tobacco Use: Bananas can also help people trying to give up smoking. The B6,
B12 they contain, as well as the potassium and magnesium found in them, help the body recover from
the effects of nicotine withdrawal.


Stress: Potassium is a vital mineral, which helps normalize the heartbeat, sends oxygen to the brain
and regulates your body's water balance. When we are stressed, our metabolic rate rises, thereby reduc-
ing our potassium levels. These can be rebalanced with the help of a high-potassium banana snack.


Strokes: According to research in The New England Journal of Medicine, eating bananas as part of a
regular diet can cut the risk of death by strokes by as much as 40%!


Warts: Those keen on natural alternatives swear that if you want to kill off a wart, take a piece of ba-
nana skin and place it on the wart, with the yellow side out. Carefully hold the skin in place with a plaster
or surgical tape!
So, a banana really is a natural remedy for many ills. When you compare it to an apple, it has
four times the protein, twice the carbohydrate, three times the phosphorus, five times the vi-
tamin A and iron, and twice the other vitamins and minerals. It is also rich in potassium and is
one of the best value foods around So maybe its time to change that well-known phrase so
that we say, 'A banana a day keeps the doctor away!'


PS: Bananas must be the reason monkeys are so happy all the time! I will add one here; want
a quick shine on our shoes?? Take the INSIDE of the banana skin, and rub directly on the
shoe...polish with dry cloth. Amazing fruit !!!

Heartfelt Expressions

“Farewell,” by Arthur Stern

“It’s [been] approximately ten years [ago] that I came to you and found comfort in the Simon Senior Center. I enjoyed
every minute I was there, but unfortunately the time has come that I have to retire. I thank everybody, especially the
staff who did everything to make the Senior Center my second home. I’ll miss you all.”

Best wishes.

A eulogy honoring the late Sylvia Goldberger [unedited]
Written by Zachary Birnbaum, age 12

                Sylvia was an amazing woman. The last time I saw her we danced. Her beautiful blond hair and her
                smile radiated brightly. Of everybody in my family, I loved her the most. I guess I found the little girl
                she was hallucination to be.

                “Oh, you’re so beautiful…” “You’re a lovely child!” “You’re such a nice girl!” Yes, she said those
                things to me. But I knew she meant it for the best. I figured she thought I was a girl because of my long
                hair. But I always answered her with the same thing…“Thank you, I love you.” And she would always
                say: “I love you too child…that’s so nice!” She saw me as the helpless child. Well, I was a ninth of her
                age! But really she was the child-like person. Giddy, happy, always loving.

                It will be weird to walk into Opa’s house and not see her. Whenever Daddy says “we’re going to Opa’s
                house!” I picture a room filled with light, —this room her—Opa by the window and Sylvia under the
                picture of the bullfighter. I loved her so much and felt an escape from the everyday whenever I stepped
                through this doorway. “Oh, child, Come in child,” I would give her a hug, a kiss, and give Opa the same.
                But it will be strange and alien to not see her. I cannot express how much I miss her. I hope I’ve caught
                how I felt in this memoir. We will always remember the beautiful, little, old lady who was Opa’s friend
                and who’s innocence washed away all skeptical thoughts about her deformed eye. I love you Sylvia.
                Goodbye. We all will miss you—me the most. “Oh, isn’t that nice!” Yes, yes it is.
