Every February, Jewish communities worldwide join to advocate for inclusion of people with disabilities and mental health conditions to be accepted and included in all aspects of Jewish life like anyone else. Please join us this Shabbat, February 16 at 10:45 am, for a very special presentation from Mr. Alan T. Brown. Please bring your family and friends as we make a special welcome to all people with disabilities.
Beit David Highland Lakes Shul 2600 NE 209th Street Miami, FL. 33180
Alan T. Brown was injured in 1988, at the age of 20, when his neck was crushed. The accident left Alan, a hockey player, a quadriplegic. For nearly 31 years since the accident, Alan and his family have, through the Alan T Brown Foundation to Cure Paralysis, provided support, education, and advocacy for the paralysis community. Alan is Director of Public Impact at the Christopher & Dana Reeve Foundation. He also has achieved many personal goals, including completing three New York City Marathons, skydiving, and scuba diving. His proudest accomplishment is becoming a father to his two young sons.
We hope to see you there!

Steven Levenson, Tony Award-winning co-creator of Dear Evan Hansen in conversation with Christine Dolan, Artburst Theater Critic

Alper JCC Berrin Family Jewish Book Festival Presents Steven Levenson, Dear Evan Hansen: The Novel In conversation with Christine Dolan, Artburst Theater Critic | Includes refreshments Sunday, February 10, 2019 4pm at the Alper JCC 11155 SW 112 Avenue • Robert Russell Theater Admission packages: Student $10 (no book) | Student $20 (with book) | 1 Adult (with book) $30 | 2 Adults (one book) $40
The Tony Award-winning co-creator of Dear Evan Hansen, Broadway’s 2017 Best Musical, presents his groundbreaking novel inspired by the show. A letter that was never meant to be seen by anyone draws high school senior Evan Hansen into a family's grief, and he is given the chance of a lifetime: to belong. No longer tangled in his once-incapacitating anxiety, this new Evan has a purpose. And a website. Every day is amazing until everything is in danger of unraveling. A simple lie leads to complicated truths in this big-hearted coming-of-age story of grief, authenticity and the struggle to belong in an age of instant connectivity and profound isolation. Show Tunes performed by Miami Children’s Theater

WHAT "THE MAMBONIKS," a new film about the Jewish love of Latin music and dance, will make its world premiere at the Miami Film Festival. Directed by Peabody Award-winning producer Lex Gillespie, the movie was filmed in South Florida and features many local residents in starring roles.
WHEN March 3, 2019, at 3PM
WHERE The Coral Gables Art Cinema, 260 Aragon Avenue, Coral Gables, FL 33134, 786.385.9689
TICKETS HERE https://2019.miamifilmfestival.com/films/mamboniks/
ABOUT THE FILM Bagels meet bongos in THE MAMBONIKS, a 90-minute documentary that tells the little-known story of the Jewish love affair with Latin music. Set in New York, Havana, Miami Beach, and the Catskill Mountains, this uplifting film features a lovable, somewhat zany collection of dancers from the 1950s. Now retired yet still dancing in Florida, they share their passion for the mambo, the hot dance from Cuba that became a world-wide sensation. With an infectious soundtrack including Tito Puente, Celia Cruz and mambo king Pérez Prado, this film explores a mostly unexamined aspect of Jewish life and culture.
