Israeli Film Night: Jellyfish

Miami Jewish Film Festival

2014-10-13, 7:30 pm

Jellyfish is a 2007 Israeli film based on a story by Shira Geffen and directed by her husband, Etgar Keret. The film tells the story of three women in Tel Aviv whose intersecting lives paint a pessimistic portrait of Israeli secular life. Batya, a waitress at weddings, comes across a mute child who seemingly emerges from the sea. Keren, a bride whose wedding Batya worked at, breaks her leg climbing out of bathroom stall and ruins her dream honeymoon in the process. And Joy, a Filipina domestic, attends to her employer with whom she struggles to communicate. Poetic imagery draws connections between the lives of these women, all of whom find solace in the sea.

Lisa Bloom, the award-winning journalist, legal analyst, trial attorney, and also a former JCC Women’s Day Luncheon speaker, returns to Miami to discuss her provocative book Suspicion Nation, a riveting courtroom drama about what went wrong in the Trayvon Martin trial. Having covered the trial Ms. Bloom suggests that none of this was a surprise and exposes mistakes made that guaranteed a loss in this “winnable case.” She believes that a country divided over issues of race, gun laws and violence, created the conditions that led to Trayvon Martin’s death, and made George Zimmerman’s acquittal by far the most likely outcome

Based on a dynamic economy and energetic foreign policy, Turkey’s’ growing engagement with other countries has made it a key player in the newly emerging world order. The changes that have taken place under the leadership of its Muslim conservative government have prompted their policymakers to craft a new vision of their role in 21st century society. Former U.S. Senator Joseph Lieberman said, “ With his deep understanding of Turkey, Dr. Cagaptay is able to explore the political, cultural and economic factors that have shaped the country’s remarkable history and that may foreshadow its future. “ Dr. Cagaptay is the director of the Turkish Research Program at The Washington Institute, and has written extensively on U.S.-Turkey relations and Turkish domestic politics.

Kai Bird at Alper JCC Berrin Family Jewish Book Fest

2014-10-26, 11am to 1pm

Pulitzer Prize-winning biographer Kai Bird shares his compelling portrait of the remarkable life and death of Robert Ames, in his latest book, "The Good Spy." Ames is considered to be one of the most important operatives in CIA history. It is thought that had Ames not been murdered, he might have helped heal the rift between Arabs and the West. The book’s complex narrative also tells of Ames’s controversial friendship with Ali Hassan Salameh, the Palestine Liberation Organizations intelligence chief who was assassinated by the Mossad in 1979. The Good Spy was recently featured on the cover of the New York Times Book Review and was chosen One of the Top 15 Books of 2014 – So Far by Time Magazine. Bird is the author of six books, including co-author of American Prometheus: The Triumph and Tragedy of J. Robert Oppenheimer.

American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC)

2014-10-30, 7:30pm to 9:30pm

There is a huge buzz about Ari Shavit’s latest book, "My Promised Land". Shavit, one of Israel’s most influential journalists draws on interviews, historical documents, private diaries, and letters, as well as his own family’s story to tell a riveting narrative. The book is both deeply human and of profound historical dimension. “ My Promised Land is the ultimate personal odyssey of a humanist exploring the startling biography of his tormented homeland, which is at the very center of global interest.” Ehud Barak, former Prime Minister and Defense Minister of Israel “ I’ve been waiting most of my adult life for an Israeli to plumb the deepest mysteries of his country’s existence and share his discoveries, and Ari Shavit does so brilliantly, writing simultaneously like a poet and a prophet.”—Jeffrey Goldberg, national correspondent, The Atlantic
