In the face of upheaval and uncertainty, we extend a heartfelt welcome to Israeli families who have recently found themselves displaced from their homes and now in Florida. We understand that embarking on a new chapter in a foreign land is a daunting prospect, and we are here to lend a helping hand.
Our mission is simple yet profound—to provide a warm and nurturing community for you and your loved ones as you try to find meaning and solace during these trying times. We understand that the journey of rebuilding is not just about physical relocation; it's about rediscovering hope, purpose, and a sense of belonging. We believe in the power of solidarity, and through our collective efforts, we strive to create a supportive environment that fosters resilience, hope, and connection.

Federation’s community commemoration of Kristallnacht – The Night of Broken Glass – at the Holocaust Memorial Miami Beach marks the start of Holocaust Education Week. “With the war in Israel and the meteoric rise in antisemitism worldwide, now is the time for the Jewish community to gather in solidarity,” said Jessica Katz, Chair of the Holocaust Memorial Miami Beach. Kristallnacht, considered a major turning point in Hitler’s campaign to annihilate the Jewish people, was marked by attacks on Jews in Germany and Austria on November 9-10, 1938. The community will assemble to hear the testimony of eyewitnesses to Kristallnacht, pay tribute to Holocaust victims and honor the courage and resilience of Survivors. In memory of our Israeli brothers and sisters who were murdered in the horrific Hamas attacks that began on October 7. Location: Holocaust Memorial Miami Beach, 1933-1945 Meridian Avenue, Miami Beach
Holocaust Education Week, November 5-November 9

Age-appropriate programming for students and adults. All programming is free of charge and open to the public. Advance registration is required for all events, except for the Kristallnacht program.

As a public act of solidarity, with the over 200 hostages abducted by Hamas during its attack on Israel on October 7, the Jewish Federations of North America and 165 partner organizations launched the Blue Ribbons for Israel campaign, asking people across the world to wear their support for these innocent victims on their shirts and display their support on their social media platforms.
Send a powerful message of solidarity by wearing your ribbon.
Wearing a ribbon publicly unites you with people of all religions, races, nationalities, ethnicities, ages and generations, and demonstrates for the people of Israel that they are not alone and that good people across the globe are with them and their families during this dark time.
