The Miami Beach JCC presents its Documentary Film Series, Real to Reel, in partnership with the Miami Jewish Film Festival. On Monday, March 28 a special screening of the History Channel film "The Liberators: Why We Fought" will be shown, followed by a discussion with Holocaust survivor Martin Baranek who will share his liberation story.
About the film: On April 29, 1945, allied troops liberated the nearby Munich located concentration camp Dachau. This was a moving event - for both the survivors and the often still very young soldiers of the US troops. The one-hour documentary tells the story from the American Liberators' point of view.
Event details: Monday, March 28 7:30 pm Miami Beach JCC 4221 Pine Tree Drive, Miami Beach
Tickets: $10 | Members & Patrons: Free To Register: http://mbjcc.org/adults/arts/real-to-reel-documentary-film-night-the-liberators/

About the Maccabeats!
Originally formed in 2007 as Yeshiva University’s student vocal group, the Maccabeats have recently emerged as both Jewish music and a cappella phenomena, with a large fanbase, more than 20 million views on YouTube, numerous TV appearances, and proven success with four albums
Though the Maccabeats aren’t your grandfather’s synagogue choir, their ideology and identity play an important part in what they do. They perform an amazing and eclectic array of Jewish, American, and Israeli songs. Their breakthrough piece, Lecha Dodi, is the epitome of this synthesis, combining some of the most beloved words of Jewish liturgy with Leonard Cohen’s meaningful and melodic Hallelujah.
Don’t miss it!

Baskin Lecture: “The Dead Sea Scrolls Demystified” Dr. Steven Weitzman April 4, 2016 - 7 PM
The Dead Sea Scrolls are one of the most famous of archaeological discoveries and also one of the most controversial, but what makes them to important? What exactly do they reveal? This talk will introduce the Dead Sea Scrolls and will explore some of the insights they have yielded about ancient Judaism, the creation of the Bible, and about scholarship itself
Dr. Steven Weitzman is a Harvard-trained scholar of biblical and Jewish Studies who aims to bring new questions to the study of early Jewish culture and literature. His publications include literary studies of biblical texts, anthropologically-informed studies of the Dead Sea Scrolls and other ancient texts, and a biography of King Solomon that traces the multi-faceted history of his story from biblical times to the present. Committed to the importance of intellectual citizenship, Dr. Weitzman serves as the Ella Darivoff Director of the Herbert D. Katz Center for Advanced Judaic Studies at the University of Pennsylvania. He also serves as the Abraham M. Ellis Professor of Hebrew and Semitic Languages and Literatures in the Department of Religious Studies.
