We are having a Phone-a-Thon to make phone calls to help welcome people to Mosaic, and to encourage them to attend events. Remember the more the merrier. We have lists of former members and people interested in Mosaic. We will wish them a Happy New Year and see if they would be interested in attending an upcoming event and becoming Members. Everyone will make calls for an hour or so, and we will bring pizza, salad, beer, and sodas. Please come help your club to grow. We all want to see more people at our events, and this is the best way to make that happen.

Luncheon celebrating the New Year with special guest speaker Rabbi Israel de la Porta
2014-10-01, 6 PM to 9 PM
A little over twelve years ago, the Gogodala -hunter-gatherers from southwestern Papua New Guinea- contacted Professor Tudor Parfitt claiming they were a lost tribe of Israel. After the introduction of Christianity in the early 20th century, much of their artwork was destroyed. They experienced a revival of carving in the 70s, drawing both on their traditional art forms and their growing identity as Israelites. Gogodala Transition and Revival at the Frost Art Museum will explore the changing identity of the Gogodala people through a presentation of recent carvings and artifacts collected by the 2013 FIU expedition to Papua New Guinea.

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.

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.

Gidi Grinstein's latest book "Flexigidity," offers a systemic view of Jewish society and explores what he believes is the secret of Jews survival, resilience, security, prosperity and leadership during past millennia. The author, Gidi Grinstein, argues that this secret stems from a unique societal hybrid between old and new, tradition and innovation, rigidity and flexibility – Flexigidity. Grinstein is the founder of a non-partisan, non-profit policy group based in Tel Aviv. He served as the Secretary and Coordinator of the Israeli negotiation team between Israel and the PLO during Prime Minister Ehud Barak’s administration (1999-2001).

Daniel Gordis presents his latest book, “Menachem Begin: The Battle for Israel’s Soul,” a fascinating biography of the sixth prime minister of Israel that explains how the pre-state terrorist became the first Israeli leader to sign a peace treaty with an Arab country. Daniel Gordis is an award-winning author and journalist. He is a regular contributor to The Jerusalem Post, and has written for The New York Times, The New Republic and The New York Times Magazine. Professor Alan Dershowitz has called Gordis “one of Israel’s most thoughtful observers.” The Forward has called him “one of the most respected Israel analysts around.” In 2014, the Jerusalem Post listed him as one of the world’s 50 most influential Jews, while Jeffrey Goldberg of the Atlantic says, “If you asked me, ‘of all the people you know, who cares the most about the physical, moral and spiritual health of Israel?’ I would put the commentator and scholar Daniel Gordis at the top of the list.” Leonard Fein has written that Gordis is “perhaps the single most popular speaker on Israel to American Jewish audiences.” This event is being held at Beth David Congregation. Transportation is available from the Miami Beach JCC.
