MBJCC Literary Series: Alyson Richman, "The Velvet Hours"

Wednesday, January 18, 2017, 12:30 pm

The Miami Beach JCC welcomes back Alyson Richman with her newest novel, The Velvet Hours. As Paris teeters on the edge of the German Occupation, a young French woman closes the door to her late grandmother’s treasure-filled apartment, unsure if she’ll ever return. Inspired by the true account of an abandoned Parisian apartment, Alyson Richman brings to life the stories of courtesan Marthe de Florian, her granddaughter Solange Beaugiron, and the unlikely relationship between two women who pursue freedom and independence during uncertain times. Solange and Marthe’s stories unfold like velvet itself, each stitched with their own shadow and light. Alyson Richman is the international bestselling author of The Mask Carver’s Son, The Rhythm of Memory, The Last Van Gogh, The Lost Wife, and The Garden of Letters. Her novels have been published in eighteen languages and have been bestsellers in several countries. The Lost Wife is currently in development to become a major motion film.

The Kirtan Rabbi - Live in a Free Concert at Temple Israel

Saturday, February 04, 2017, 7:30 PM to 9:00 PM

Come see The Kirtan Rabbi, Andrew Hahn, live in a free concert on Saturday, February 4, 2017 at 7:30 p.m. at Temple Israel of Greater Miami. Admission is free and open to the public with an RSVP at the Temple Israel website: http://www.templeisrael.net/lifelong-learning/scholars/. Kirtan is a form of chanting developed in India to heighten participation, communal feeling and ecstatic communion with G-d. Its distinguishing feature is a formula of singing based on call-and-response. The chant facilitator offers something, and the participants return the favor. As Reb Drew likes to say, “We don’t sing many words, but we sing them many times!” Kirtan is fully participatory. It breaks down the barrier between “leader” and “listener.” Its improvisational and experimental nature make it a fun yet deep religious experience — for both adults and children. The LA Jewish Journal says: "People twirl ecstatically, eyes closed, repeating, in a call-and-response fashion, chants led by Rabbi Andrew Hahn, who plays a harmonium while others play guitars and percussion instruments — repetitive, hypnotic sounds that seductively nudge the crowd, young and old alike, to sway and swirl and chant." Rabbi Hahn will also help lead Friday night services on February 3 at 7:30 p.m. and Saturday morning services at 10 a.m. Come join us for a weekend full of inspiring music, learning, and spirituality. For more information, please visit the Temple Israel website at www.templeisrael.net or call (305) 573-5900.

Jennifer Brown - Book Fest Event

Tuesday, February 07, 2017, 7:30pm to 9:30pm

In 1935, Dottie Krasinsky is the epitome of the modern girl–a bookkeeper in Manhattan, a steady beau, close friends and an eye for fashion. Yet at heart, she is a dutiful Jewish daughter living with her Yiddish-speaking parents on the Lower East Side. When after a single careless night she finds herself in a family way by a charismatic but unsuitable man, she is desperate. Dottie’s immigrant mother Rose has given birth to five children, been a housewife for twenty years, and wants to return to the social activism she embraced as a young woman. When she realizes that she, too, is pregnant, mother and daughter wrestle with unthinkable choices, and confront their beliefs in the changing world.
