HOW BAZAAR

It's unusual for a Jewish
community center to become
a tourist attraction, but this
center, located in Boca Raton,
draws so many visitors that
tours are given daily.
"People often say it's the
most beautiful JCC they've
ever seen," says Debra Morris,
public relations director,
whose schedule has been hec-
tic ever since the JCC opened
last April.
First, visitors look around
the expansive campus — for
that's what the grounds here
are called — with its modern
architecture and directional
signs in both English and
Hebrew.
They visit the outdoor
Holocaust pavilion with its
large and graphic photos, and
the Cypress Preserve, an area
of trees which has been
designated a natural preserve
by the state of Florida.
After admiring the campus,
visitors still have much to see
inside the various buildings.
One building is devoted to
cultural arts. In the Rosen
Art Gallery, there are chang-
ing art exhibits as well as per-
manent artworks, including
two oil paintings by Zero
Mostel, whose work was
displayed in a special exhibit.
Zinman Hall, also in this
building, is a 500-seat modern
theater which is the site of
cultural events. The Boca
Raton and Miami City ballet
companies have performed
here; so have jazz artists and
musical groups.
"We're bringing to Boca
Raton something they've
never had before, a center for
cultural life," says Ms. Morris.
It's also a center for recrea-
tion. A teen lounge is equip-
ped with pool tables, games,
TV sets and VCRs; a senior
adult lounge has activities
and serves hot meals; and
there are a pre-school and a
summer camp on the campus,
attended last year by 800
youngsters.

utside the Jewish
Community Center in
Boca Raton, visitors
are admiring an unusual
piece of sculpture. Created by
the noted Israeli artist Frank
Meisner, Jerusalem is an in-
tricately carved metallic
globe that spins and turns.
This is just one of the at-
tractions of a visit to the
Adolph and Rose Levis Jewish
Community Center of South
Palm Beach County.

Also on the campus, of
course, is a sports, health and
fitness center, the most
modern in all of Palm Beach
County. With 7,000 square
feet of space, the facilities in-
clude state of the art equip-
ment, two 25-yard swimming
pools, courts for racquetball,
tennis, softball and squash,
an aerobics studio, sauna and
steam rooms.
Over 15,000 members use

opening, says Ms. Morris. "We
are packed from 6 a.m. until
11 p.m.," she says.
By now she's accustomed to
becoming an unofficial tour
guide for the visitors and
groups who come to see this
JCC; she even gave hard hat
tours when the center was be-
ing built.
But the main goal of this
JCC is to serve the residents
of the area. The Jewish
population of Boca Raton and
nearby Delray Beach is
55,000. "Our goal is to
become the focal point for
Jewish life here," says Ms.
Morris.
Jewish travelers to Boca
Raton, which is north of
Miami and not far from Palm
Beach, will find other attrac-
tions of Jewish interest
besides the JCC, including
nine different synagogues in
the area.
In a town that has an im-
pressive array of boutiques
and shops, there are two
stores of special interest to
Jewish shoppers. Ahava is
located in Mizener Park, a
