Area man hands out roses – and happiness – to 'transform world with love' - Delray Newspaper
Lerman said about 20 folks from his entourage joined him to distribute flowers to people at Town Center Mall in Boca Raton. He has also been handing out flowers at Mizner Park, and recently showed up at a Publix on Military Trail in Greenacres.

Filling a shopping card with about three dozen roses that he purchased, Lerman approached some of the shoppers as they entered the store on a very hot, bright Sunday midday. “Have a flower. We love you,” he said. Some took the offering of love, and many thanked the rose donor for his kindness. Many seemed surprised at the show of affection in a tumultuous world.
But on this day, the flower festivity would not go as smoothly as at other times. The assistant store manager, Josh Rongione, appeared at the entry door and told Lerman and his supporters to leave.
The flower man removed the bouquets from the carriage and headed for a Winn Dixie on Hypoluxo Road in nearby Lake Worth. The departure was quick and peaceful.
Later, Rongione told the Boca Newspaper that he had gotten several complaints from customers who said Lerman was blocking the doorway. The store official also said that to gather a crowd during a mask-demanding pandemic was not an appropriate behavior “with everything that is happening in the world.”
At the Winn Dixie, though, Lerman said he was met at the door by a manager who took him around the market to give flowers to all employees and lots of customers. Lerman said his reception was exceptional.
“If I had a zillion flowers, I would give away a zillion,” he said as he raised a bouquet over his head. ”Everyone wants to spread love and give away roses.”
Kristina Martin, a Lake Worth resident who had arrived in Florida from Wisconsin a week earlier, received several flowers from Lerman. “I love them,” she said. “I think it’s a good thing to spread positivity. It makes people happy.”
Leslie Morris, who drove to Palm Beach County from Weston to help distribute flowers, said giving out the colorful blossoms showed “unconditional love for humanity. It puts a smile on people’s faces and spreads compassion in this really rough time.”

Navigate Valentine's Day at work with caution
There is a lot of judging on Valentine’s Day,” says Nicole Gerber, a single, 31-year-old legal assistant at RAS Boriskin in Boca Raton. Sometimes, people just are oblivious to how their behavior affects a co-worker, Gerber says. “It inconsiderate to show off and say ‘look what I got’ when there is someone who is not sharing their holiday with anyone. It’s just not something anyone should do.”Of course, there is a sneaky alternative to the unfulfilled arrival of flowers, balloons or chocolates: Send them to yourself. An estimated 14 percent of women plan to send flowers to themselves for the holiday, according to a 2016 Consumer Intentions and Actions Survey published by Statistic Brain Research Institute in California. Miami relationship coach Gladys Diaz encourages her clients to view doing so as a sign of empowerment. “When you think about it, the longest-lasting relationship in your life is the one with yourself. Why not show yourself love?” Diaz says, adding that no one has to know the sender. “If anyone questions you, the simple answer is, ‘I don’t want to get into it … that’s personal.’” Showing appreciation for colleagues also is a nice thought on Valentine’s Day, but even giving casual gifts to a co-worker can be risky. A Miami banker says a well-intentioned box of chocolates for someone she considered her “work spouse” turned into a conversation about her being “flirty.” Clearly, tact is required to navigate the emotionally charged holiday at the office without crossing boundaries or making anyone feel uncomfortable, especially when a man in the office receives floral arrangements. “Men getting flowers at work is just not macho and if a man got them, he would get teased,” says South Florida radio host Paul Castronovo of “The Paul Castronovo Show” on 105.9 FM. “Men would rather get a bottle of booze or wine with a note that says, ‘Let’s share this at home tonight.’” place_quote1To ease workplace tension, some employers use Valentine’s Day as a feel-good day for all employees. At Southeast Food Distribution in Miramar, all female employees receive a rose in a vase. At Center for Dental Implants in Aventura, the day starts with heart-shaped doughnuts and coffee for the nine employees. “I will probably bring everyone chocolates,” says Adriana Rodriguez, assistant office manager. “I think it’s important to celebrate with people you spend a lot of time with. It puts a smile on everyone’s face.”There is also the unspoken awkwardness of leaving work on time on Valentine’s Day. “If you have plans and your boss is not understanding, it could cause resentment,” Rodriguez says. In her dental office, staff works together to leave on time for after-work celebrations with loved ones: “We all know we what we need to do … but I know I will be itching to get out the door.”Cindy Krischer Goodman writes about work/life and workplace topics.

Florida native plants get spotlight on garden tour
Sunshine State. The Wilson garden in Delray Beach and the Casamento, Martin, Tramell, Balosie and Furman gardens in Boca Raton will be part of the tour.
"Florida native plants create sustainable landscapes," Lerner said. "Our mission is to promote preservation, conservation and restoration. Without native plants, you lose the natural food chain and things start to deteriorate. In this age of droughts, bees dying and global warming, I want the Palm Beach County Chapter of the Florida Native Plant Society to be a steward for saving the planet."
One of the challenges Lerner said native plants have faced is the desire for people who move here to have something familiar planted from where they used to live.
"People come to Florida and often want plants that are grown in other places," she said. "They want something very colorful and that feels tropical, but isn't from here and this does absolutely nothing to help our local species of butterflies and other animals."
For the tour, Lerner said a docent will be present at each garden to answer questions and assist tour participants with tips and advice on how to plant native plants and trees at their own homes.
"The tour will be a great way for people to educate themselves on native species," she said.
This year, for the first time, the chapter is also having a photo contest.
"Submission and contest details will be available at every garden," Lerner said. "The first prize winner will also receive a free one-year member... (Sun Sentinel)Sep 7, 2016
Workshops prepare students for High Holidays
S. Gross Hebrew Academy and Lehrman Community Day School, both in Miami Beach, Donna Klein Jewish Academy and Congregation B'nai Israel, both in Boca Raton, David Posnack Jewish Day School in Davie, Hebrew Academy Community School in Margate, Brauser Maimonides Academy in Fort Lauderdale, Arthur L. Meyer Jewish Academy in Palm Beach Gardens and more.
Gutnick has been very impressed with the children he's taught.
"When you come into their classrooms, they're just so well-behaved and very interested in what's going on," he said.
Gutnick got his yearly tradition started on Aug. 28 for mostly public school students by taking his Honey Bee workshop to Chabad Israeli Center of Boca Raton and his Shofar Factory to Chabad of West Boynton and West Lake Worth.
Rabbi Naftali Hertzel of Chabad Israeli Center said there were approximately 150 children at the Honey Bee workshop that took place during an open house for the institution's Hebrew school that enjoyed the program.
"He [Gutnick] was professional and it was amazing as the children learned a lot about Rosh Hashanah, the bees, and everything," Hertzel noted.
Gabe Sharifi, 11, of Boca Raton, loved participating in the Honey Bee workshop with his siblings and said "It was really nice and fun."
"I loved how they gave honey at the end, how they showed how the bees collect pollen from the flowers, how they explained the culture and how they talked about the holiday," Gabe added.
Rabbi Yosef Raichik of Chabad of West Boynton and West Lake Worth, who noted approximately 60-70 children at the Shofar Factory, said the workshop was amazing and the children loved it. He also noted that the workshop got tremendous feedback from parents and that Gutnick got the children excited about the upcoming holidays.
"He explained where the shofar comes from, how they're made, which animal they could use and so on and so forth in a really exciting way. He also spoke to them about the High Holidays and the reason why we blow the shofar in a very nice way."
Mia Levine, 9, of Delray Beach, who attended the Shofar Factory, said about the workshop: "It was so cool. We learned where shofars come from, why we can't use cow's horns because they're not kosher and he [Gutnick] explained why we use the shofars."
Mia also said: "He [Gutnick] taught us how to blow the shofar so on Rosh Hashanah we'll know how to blow the shofar."
Mia's sister, Talia Levine, 7, also participated in the Shofar Factory and like her older sibling, felt she learned a lot in the workshop that has increased her excitement for the upcoming High Holidays.
Both these workshops are two of approximately 15 hands-on interactive ones that Gutnick brings to students every year to teach them about Jewish holidays, traditions and values. Visit chabadyouthfl.com or call 917-833-5393 for more information or to bring these workshops to your own institution.

After Dallas killings, South Floridians support local deputies by giving them flowers, food
Ian Doriot, a Broward sheriff's sergeant, woke up to find a bouquet of yellow and purple blooms with a handwritten note on his squad car parked in Boca Raton. "To have the public go out of their way," Doriot said, "it's the reason I became a cop 27 years ago."
In Tamarac, the Broward Sheriff's Office said families have walked into the sheriff's substation with gifts they said were a token of gratitude.
Late Friday, a family delivered 10 boxes of pizza and garlic rolls. Two more deliveries came over the weekend with balloons, two cakes, bagels and doughnuts. A fourth family showed up Monday morning with more bagels.
"Your sacrifices + commitment to our community doesn't go unnoticed," a note read. "We appreciate you each and every day."
It was signed "a Tamarac family" with x's and o's, a sign for hugs and kisses.
Sheriff's Tamarac District Chief Neal Glassman said the gestures mean a lot to deputies. "There are more people than not who appreciate what you do," Glassman told his deputies.
With recent events, there is a feeling "that everybody is against them and obviously that's not true."
Last week in Dallas, a black Army veteran, 25-year-old Micah Johnson, opened fire on police officers, killing five and wounding more.
The killings, which marked the deadliest day for U.S. law enforcement since the 9/11 attacks, happened while hundreds were in downtown Dallas. They were peacefully marching to protest after t... (Sun Sentinel)
