Daniel Levin, Proof of Life: Twenty Days on the Hunt for a Missing Person in the Middle East

Ticket $6 or Book & Ticket $36, VIRTUAL event in partnership with National JCC Literary Consortium

In Conversation with Holly Firfer, Atlanta Media Personality

Daniel Levin the son of a diplomat who spent his early years in the Middle east and in Africa then trained as a lawyer. This is a true story about his receiving an urgent call from an acquaintance about a young man who had gone missing in Syria. Over the course of twenty intense days, Levin barters and negotiates his way through Istanbul, Beirut, Amman, and Dubai on a quest to find the young man who disappeared under suspicious circumstances. This dangerous journey brings him into contact with the shadowy world of the underground war economy where everything is for sale, and he sees first-hand the power of the industries that endlessly fuel these conflicts—the trade of cash, goods, weapons, drugs and most devastatingly, people. PROOF OF LIFE is a mind-blowing exploration of how people use leverage to get what they want, entangling Levin in a dizzying web of favors and counter favors with the highest armed-conflict negotiator, navigating the seedy and dangerous underbelly of the Middle East, where he encounters powerful sheiks, drug lords, and sex traffickers in pursuit of the truth.

To be considered for Women’s Impact Initiative Grants, proposals should identify obstacles women and girls face and develop creative responses that promote social, economic and political equality.

Jewish Incubator Grants support nonprofits that strengthen Miami’s Jewish community through innovative and impactful programs. Jewish organizations with creative and forward-thinking ideas that enrich social service, educational or Jewish identity-building activities are invited to apply.

Federation’s newly-launched Jewish Abilities Alliance Inclusion Grants will fund projects that create opportunities for inclusion of individuals with disabilities in the Miami Jewish community through programs, supplies or physical accommodations.
