It's Happening In Miami
Posted by mysterylady86 on 04/08/2019 @ 05:08 PM
Passover is just around the corner and, how better to get into the Passover mood than to read Murder In Another Inn by Barbara Fox. The book is set in Miami Beach and deals with a murder that takes place during a Passover Seder. Sandy, the new owner of the inn, knows nothing about Passover but has to learn quickly because a local temple has booked the inn for their two seders. Sophie, the kosher caterer next door and Rabbi Josh the handsome young Rabbi introduce Sandy to the traditional foods and customs for Passover; the book includes several ofSophies recipes including a flourless chocolate cake. A mystery club and a book signing are scheduled for the same night as the seder and when a murder occurs, the police find that the victim had ties to all three events. The suspects include the caterer, the book publisher, a noted author and a few members of the congregation. A romance between Sandy's step-daughter (who may or may not be Jewish) and the rabbi takes up Sandy's time as she tried to solve the mystery. Murder In Another Inn is the third in the Murder In The Inn Series; it was just re-released as an ebook and is available from Barns and Noble and many other online book stores.

Grief is most definitely not a 'one size fits all'. Modern Loss is a web-based platform to provide support, founded by Jewish entrepreneur and former Colbert Report writer Rebecca Soffer and award-wining writer and journalist Gabrielle Birkner. The book of the same name shares modern stories of loss, which are insightful, touching, provocative and even 'scandalous'. In our culture, where people sometimes feel unsafe to share, the movement they have begun tries to reclaim grief as part of the tapestry of our lives. In doing so, they have supported thousands on their journeys. Join Federation's spiritual support director, Rabbi Frederick Klein, as he engages Rebecca and Gabrielle in a conversation about their own stories of loss, share surprising stories from others and help us to reframe how we can support friends and loved ones while going through their own grief. The book and their stories are surprisingly inspiring and will inspire you as well. As their tagline says: Candid conversation about grief. Beginners welcome. Sponsored by the the MARJCC/Sanford L. Ziff Campus. Mishkan Miami of the Greater Miami Jewish Federation and Jewish Book Council. Books will be available for purchase. Call Rabbi Klein at 305-576-4000 for more information.

On Thursday, March 14, Hebrew Academy Middle School students competed in the 3rd Annual Cadena Initiative Social Entrepreneurship Competition, at Beth Torah Benny Rok Campus, against teams from other local Jewish Day Schools. Their objective was to come up with an idea that could be used before, during, or after a natural disaster in an underprivileged community. Students researched different disasters and areas they are likely to occur.
With the guidance of Middle School Science Teacher, Mr. Gonzalez, our 8th graders Bat Sheva Hazan, Rina Askenazi-Cohen, Shira Mayer won first place in the competition for the second year! They created a board game titled "Skilled Survivor,” which teaches children how to handle and protect themselves during a natural disaster in a fun and innovative way. As first place winners for South Florida, they will now move on to the international competition in Mexico City in May. If their idea wins, Cadena will invest in their concept, bring it to life, and install it in the communities around the world that would benefit from the warning system to help save lives.
Here is more information about the Cadena Initiative:
The Cadena Initiative is a humanitarian non-profit organization committed to providing aid, hand in hand, to people affected by natural disasters around the world. The foundation develops long-lasting, cost-efficient solutions that enhance the quality of living for vulnerable communities around the world. The Cadena Foundation is an ambassador to the United Nations, serving as an official spokesperson in resilience strategies, and an active participant in the United Nations World Humanitarian Summit. Cadena is the only Jewish Latin American member of the START Network, the largest humanitarian group of leading NGO’s.

This year’s conference will be led by Dr. Jessica N. Zitter, a noted physician, palliative care expert and medical ethicist. Dr. Zitter calls us to rethink the role that each one of us has in deciding the best course of action when someone is near the end of life and to revisit what we mean by being a hero in such a situation.
