New Book "Jewish South Florida" is a Cultural and Historical Guide to Neighborhoods, Synagogues and Eateries

Beyond the stereotype of elderly Jews visiting sunny beaches and stopping in at New York-style delis lies a rich history and Jewish cultural tradition. The area is populated by Ashkenazi Jews, Sephardic Jews with roots in Spain or Turkey, and those from Cuba and other Latin American countries. It’s this cultural mingling that makes the Jewish way of life in South Florida so unique.

“I realized there was a huge desire for these cultural guides,” says author Paul Kaplan. “I did not want to write a conventional travel book that simply listed places for readers to go. I wanted to tell the little-known stories behind key venues like restaurants and delis with decades of history, historic synagogues, neighborhoods, and community centers.”

In his research, Kaplan conducted many primary interviews with curators, tour guides, historians, shop owners, and rabbis to give the book more texture.

“I learned about unique venues I had never heard of. For example, the Holocaust Documentation Center in Fort Lauderdale showcases the tanks used to liberate concentration camps. Or Palm Beach's Cafe Cinematique which screen films and promotes discussions on a variety of fascinating topics. I was interested to learn about a library at Florida Atlantic University that is reimagining old music with a modern beat and performing them.”

Kaplan also wanted to tell the little-known history of how Jews immigrated to South Florida. Now one of the nation’s largest Jewish communities, it all began with some of the region’s first pioneers and “snowbirds” migrating from the north. An integral part of this story is the Cuban-Jewish experience in the region's history. A diverse group of both Ashkenazi and Sephardic Jews, Kaplan was surprised to learn that many in the first wave of Cubans to reach Florida felt unwelcomed from the larger Jewish community.

“I think South Florida receives many vacationers,” says Kaplan “But many (including myself) don't realize that there are some fascinating stories to uncover.”

More than simply a travel guide, Jewish South Florida approaches each profiled location as an opportunity to bring to light the culture of the Jews that have made South Florida their home.

Jewish South Florida is on sale now at Barnes&Noble and on amazon.com.

Temple Judea Adult Education Opportunities

Sacred Aging –The Long and Winding Road Discussions about growing up, growing older and living longer Led by Eric B. Meyers Visiting Scholar: Rabbi Richard Address

Unless you’re Peter Pan, you’re in a constant state of growth – emotionally, intellectually and even physically. (Did you know that your nose never stops growing as you age???) Growth means aging – it’s an undeniable fact. Whether you’re retired, just becoming an empty-nester or getting ready to leave the nest yourself, life moves on. To learn more about how to navigate these transitions, Temple Judea is delighted to present a series of workshops given by renowned Rabbi Richard Address, Founder and Director of Jewish Sacred Aging.

Tomorrow Never Knows* Friday, Jan. 26th (Dinner and Discussion after Shabbat services)

Can Torah serve as a guide to our life's third stage? Unpack some classic texts that form a guide for positive sacred aging.

When I’m 64 Monday, Jan 29th 7:30 PM - 9:00 PM

Boomers who leave full time work in their 60s or 70s can expect, given the wild card of health, to live for decades. What do we do with that time? Can traditional Torah teachings be a guide for this new life stage? How do we deal with the loss of identity from a "job" that often defined us?

A Hard Day’s Night: A Jewish Approach to Mental Health Monday, Feb 5th 7:30 PM - 9:00 PM

A look at our tradition's approach to mental health issues. An examination of the Talmudic diagnosis. An examination of approaches to dementia and Alzheimer's and a look at healing services and liturgy specific to this issue.

Here Comes the Sun: New Rituals for New Life Stages Monday Feb. 12th 7:30 PM - 9:00 PM

Examine the creative thrust of contemporary Judaism that is producing new rituals and prayers to meet the new life stages evolving from the longevity revolution. These include a celebration of wisdom, the removal of a wedding ring, co-habitation, accepting loss and a re-definition of adultery in light of Alzheimer's.

Rabbi Richard F. Address, D.Min, is the Founder and Director of www.jewishsacredaging.com. Rabbi Address served for over three decades on staff of the Union for Reform Judaism; first as a Regional Director and then, beginning in 1997, as Founder and Director of the URJ’s Department of Jewish Family Concerns and served as a specialist and consultant for the North American Reform Movement in the areas of family related programming.
