Community Meeting on the Legalization of Recreational Marijuana

Scarsdale Drug And Alcohol Task Force To Hold Community Meeting Discussing Legalization Of Recreational Marijuana

The Scarsdale Drug and Alcohol Task Force (DATF) will hold a community meeting on Friday, December 14th at 9:00 AM in rooms 170-172 at Scarsdale High School. All community residents are invited and encouraged to attend this timely forum on a significant public policy issue.
The featured speaker is Luke Niforatos, Senior Policy Advisor at Smart Approaches to Marijuana (SAM). Mr. Niforatos has devoted his career to non-profit community healthcare and lived in Colorado during and after the legalization of recreational marijuana. The mission of SAM is to align marijuana policies with reputable science and public health principles using a common sense, bipartisan approach.

Ten states and the District of Columbia have legalized marijuana for recreational purposes, and the issue is under discussion in more states, including New York. States with full legalization are assessing the tax revenue, incarceration rates, health care costs and incidence of marijuana-related accidents and hospitalizations in the aftermath of legalization. They are also examining the effects of legalizing marijuana on youth substance use. Mr. Niforatos will discuss these findings and the political and commercial landscape that is making marijuana a potential Big Tobacco playing field. Public policy options will be presented, and the audience is invited to engage in a discussion on these issues, particularly with regard to potential effects on adolescents.

The Scarsdale DATF is a community coalition dedicated to preventing youth substance use. For more information about the DATF, visit Facebook at Scarsdale DrugAlcohol TaskForce, or find the DATF on Instagram at scarsdale_datf, or on the web at scarsdaledatf.com.

8:00 p.m. - Chavurah Service

TOPIC: Reading the Tanach like an Egyptologist
Egypt plays a major role in the history of the Jewish people. The earliest European interest in Egypt in the nineteenth century came from a desire to understand which episodes in the Hebrew Bible could be historically verified. This illustrated talk looks at what the Biblical writer knew about Egypt in the time of the patriarchs, the Exodus, and the prophets. It shows how a modern, scientific knowledge of Egyptian texts and archaeology help us to understand the composition of the Biblical text and how the Bible reflects history.

Jill Weisfeld, Author of Riley the Retriever Wants a New Job to Read and Sign Books at Scarsdale Library

riley the retriever cover 480hScarsdale resident Jill Mangel Weisfeld will read and sign copies of her new children’s book, Riley the Retriever Wants a New Job, at the Scarsdale Library on December 18 at 4 pm. The book is based on the adventures of her own dog, Riley.

Weisfeld’s dog, Riley, is a certified therapy dog, trained by the Good Dog Foundation, who visits schools, libraries and nursing homes in the Westchester area.

The book tells the adventures of Riley who is trying to find a more meaningful job than being a retriever. Riley begins her quest researching working dog jobs on “Doogle” to see if she can find one that’s a better fit for her. The colorful illustrations by Shirley Ng Benitez bring Riley’s adorable personality to life.

Weisfeld wrote the book with her mother, Deborah Mangel, also a children’s book author, who passed away not long before the book’s publication.

“I wanted to write a book that was both educational and enjoyable and to teach kids about working dogs, ” says Weisfeld. “By visiting schools and nursing homes, Riley helps provide happiness and comfort to members of the community.”

Weisfeld and Riley have been participating in Wag Your Tale! Read to a Dog events at the Scarsdale Public Library in which dogs and their human volunteers listen to children read as a way for independent readers to practice their skills.

Eileen Corbett, Scarsdale Children’s Librarian, says, “Riley and Jill have been coming to the Scarsdale Public Library for 7 years now, and we are delighted to have them for Riley’s first book.”

Weisfeld is currently Art Director of the Pediatric Cancer Foundation and has done freelance graphic design for various non-profit organizations, including Temple Israel Center of White Plains. She is formerly Senior Art Director at Bride’s Magazine and Art Director for Macy’s Advertising in New York. She is Founder and CEO of her own publishing company, Peek-a-Bear Press based in Scarsdale.

Her first children’s book, Take a Peek with Peek-a-Bear, received five awards including a gold medal in the prestigious Mom's Choice Award in the category of Children's Picture Books, and a silver medal in the Moonbeam Children's Book Awards in the category of Book Arts/Pop-up/Cut-out.

Weisfeld is a 20 year resident of Fox Meadow where she lives with her husband, Bruce and her daughters Emily, Danielle and Lauren.

The book is available on Amazon, at Bronx River Books in Scarsdale, Womrath Bookshop in Bronxville and Scattered Books in Chappaqua, as well as other bookstores in the Westchester area.
