Miriam Hoffman, author, scholar, journalist, playwright and survivor presents her new book A Breed Apart: Reflections of a Young Refugee
A Breed Apart: Reflections of a Young Refugee, published by YI Press (a division of Yiddishkayt Initiative, Inc.), is an engaging non-fiction tale of war and survival, seen through the eyes of a young Miriam Hoffman and her father. Hoffman’s personal tale captures the beauty and importance of keeping the Yiddish language and Jewish culture alive during the twentieth-century, despite countless attempts to destroy it.
This intellectual and emotional journey describes Miriam Hoffman’s experience as a young refugee girl growing up in a post-war DP (Displaced Person) refugee camp in Ulm, Germany, after the destruction of World War II.
Hoffman’s son, Avi, is a multi-talented actor, director, comedian, singer and Jewish cultural activist. Together, they will be reading selections from Hoffman’s book. The evening will also include a discussion, Q&A and book signing.

JWorks Miami invites you to attend a FREE Networking Skills workshop on Thursday, December 7th, 10:30am-12:30 pm. ###
Please RSVP at JWorks Miami - RSVP is required! The workshop will begin promptly at 10:30am, so please arrive a few minutes prior and dress to impress! Business casual attire is recommended.
Networking Works! The idea is to develop a network of people who share information to help each other. It can be a useful strategy for opening the hidden job market, i.e. for getting a good job. Because many jobs are never advertised, it is essential that you develop friendly relationships with people who can tip you off to job openings and perhaps even introduce you to the person who is doing the hiring. There is some truth in, "It's not what you know, but who you know."
Join us for what promises to be a great workshop and learn how to build a network to achieve greater success in your job search and beyond!
* What is networking?
* How to craft an impactful elevator pitch
* Networking tips to expand your circle
* Hidden job market
* Infomational interview
These events are also a great way for JWorks Miami staff to get to know you! Please note, we are unable to refer you to available opportunities unless we have met you in person.
All events will be held at:
Greater Miami Jewish Federation
4200 Biscayne Blvd.
Miami, FL 33137
Parking lot entrance is on Federal Highway, parallel to Biscayne Blvd. Map
If you have any questions please visit our website or call us at 305-403-6554.
We look forward to seeing you!
