The Importance of Embracing and Affirming Our Grandchildren’s Many Identities

Terms like “non-dominant identities, REDI (racial equity, diversity and inclusion), transgender and nonbinary” may feel unfamiliar and even uncomfortable. These sessions will provide us with foundational knowledge, shared language, and inclusive practices so that we can better demonstrate our unconditional love and support for the important young people in our lives. Join us for a two-part series by the Union for Reform Judaism, Jewish Grandparents Network, and Keshet to support you in providing affirming spaces for gender-expansive, non-binary, and transgender young people.

Federation to Host Another Free Kosher Food Distribution Drive-Thru November 18

The Greater Miami Jewish Federation will conduct a Food Distribution Drive-Thru event in response to ongoing food insecurity in the surrounding community. This month’s event will feature a number of food items commonly associated with the Thanksgiving feast.

WHEN: Friday, November 18, 2022 9 A.M. – 11 A.M.

WHERE: Greater Miami Jewish Federation Stanley C. Myers Building (Parking Lot) 4200 Biscayne Boulevard

Participants will receive sweet potatoes, green beans, cranberry sauce and pumpkin-pie filling, as well as kosher meat and non-perishable food products, challah loaves and other locally grown fruits and vegetables. Food packages will be distributed on a first-come, first-served basis.

Federation has conducted monthly Food Distribution Drive-Thru events since March 2020. Each of these events has provided food supplies for 1,300 to 1,500 South Florida residents. While the drive-thru is open to all in need, it is a unique opportunity for members of the Jewish community who follow strict kosher dietary laws. Federation thanks the many donors who have helped the community bring food to the hungry during this difficult time when so many are experiencing food insecurity.

The Food Distribution Drive-Thru is being coordinated by Federation’s Jewish Volunteer Center in partnership with Jewish Community Services of South Florida and Repair the World.

Cars can only enter through the Federation building’s west gate on Federal Highway from the northbound lane, then make a right into the parking lot. Once inside, vehicles will be directed into lines where food packages will be distributed. Recipients must remain in their cars. Volunteers will place packages of food in the trunk of each recipient’s car after it enters the parking lot.

NOTE TO EDITORS: Media are recommended to park along Federal Highway on the west side of the Federation Building, as the parking lot will be full. Representatives from Federation and Jewish Community Services will be available for interviews. For more information, contact David Stiefel at dstiefel@greatcom.com or 305.448.1456.
