Meet the Author Jewish Book Series 2014-2015

Temple Sinai of North Dade

2015-01-26, 7 PM to 9 PM

The MAR-JCC 2014/2015 Meet the Author Jewish Book Series presents Boris Fishman, a singularly talented writer makes his literary debut with this provocative, soulful, and sometimes hilarious story of a failed journalist asked to do the unthinkable: Forge Holocaust-restitution claims for old Russian Jews in Brooklyn, New York. The New York Times Book Review - Patricia T. O'Conner comments- Is there room in American fiction for another brilliant young émigré writer? There had better be, because here he is. Boris Fishman's first novel…is bold, ambitious and wickedly smart…The only problem with this novel is that its covers are too close together. I wanted more of Slava, his bumpy love life, his venal grandfather, even Herr Barber. Undoubtedly, comparisons will be made—to Bellow and the Roths (Henry and Philip), as well as to Gary Shteyngart, who also came from the Soviet Union as a child. But in reading A Replacement Life, I thought most often of Bernard Malamud. Like the hero of The Fixer, Slava Gelman is an honorable man who finds that one broken rule, one risky move, changes his life irrevocably. The free series presented by the Michael-Ann Russell Jewish Community Center in partnership with several partnering sponsoring organizations including Aventura Turnberry Jewish Center, Beth Torah Benny Rok Campus, Jewish Community Relations Council of the Greater Miami Jewish Federation, North Dade Branch of the Greater Miami Jewish Federation, Temple Sinai, and WIZO. It is developed through the auspices of the Jewish Book Council. The Series features authors on national tour, whose recently published books are of interest to the Jewish community, as well as the general community.

JCW Miami Event: Survivors Of Child Sexual Abuse Share Their Message of Strength

Aventura Chabad

2015-02-15, 7:00pm to 10:00pm

Help Jewish Community Watch combat the shame and secrecy that surrounds child sexual abuse in our communities by joining us for a powerful night of awareness, education and healing. Whether you're a survivor yourself, have a loved one who is a survivor, or just want to support survivors and protect children, this is an event you don't want to miss! This event will be moderated by Rosh Lowe, Fox News Reporter and will feature speakers: Meyer Seewald - Founder of JCW; Eli Nash - Survivor of CSA; Bibi Morsow - Saul - Survivor of CSA; and Dr. Norman Goldwasser - Trauma Psychologist Follow this link (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2hsuIVWx5Nc) to see JCW's last event in Miami - noted as many to be a "wake up call" and a "raw, powerful and emotional evening" where a community "opened their souls" to "provide an opportunity for victims to come forward, to speak out, to share some of the horrors of their abuse, to share some of the pain and suffering of their trauma". We all share a responsibility to our children and to our community. According to statistics, 1 out of every 3 girls and 1 out of every 5 boys will be sexually assaulted before the age of 18. We cannot afford to ignore our children's pain! We must join together and get educated on the matter to support those that fight for Hashem's children.

Aventura Turnberry Jewish Center

2015-02-23, 7:00 PM to 8:30 PM

On January 27, 2015 the 70th Anniversary of the liberation of Auschwitz was commemorated on what is known as International Holocaust Memorial Day. The last few years have seen a noticeable increase in anti-Semitism, especially in Europe. This was most notable during the summer of 2014 Israel-Hamas war. As historical memory of the Holocaust fades and as more and more anti-Israel demonstrations cross into blatant anti-Semitism the questions is raised: Is there a connection between these two phenomena? Dr. Robert Jan Van Pelt is a Holocaust scholar and professor at the University of Waterloo, Canada. He is the author of nine books and an expert on the architecture of Auschwitz.

Film Series Screening: Disobediance-The Sousa Mendes Story

Beth Torah Benny Rok Campus

2015-02-24, 7:00 PM to 9:00 PM

One of the great untold stories of World War II, Aristides de Sousa Mendes, the Portuguese General Consul in Bordeaux, France, in defiance of strict orders from his government, issued 30,000 visas to refugees (including 10,000 Jews) fleeing the Germans. Subsequently, Sousa Mendes was stripped of his diplomatic position, his family name disgraced and he and his children were denied the means to earn a living in Portugal. Holocaust scholar Yehuda Bauer describes Sousa Mendes’ actions as one of the greatest acts of rescue in World War II. The docudrama Disobedience explores the events that led up to his fateful decision to issue the visas, the drama of carrying out his decision before he was stopped, and the consequences of his actions for him and for his family. In French w/English Subtitles Post film discussion with Robert Jacobvitz, the State of Florida representative of the Sousa Mendes Foundation. A Holocaust Education Week Event.
