On Thursday, March 29th, the day before Passover, Tiktin Real Estate Investment Services (TREIS) purchased and donated fresh Passover foods and supplies to the newly expanded Jewish Community Services (JCS) Kosher Food Bank at 15455 West Dixie Highway in North Miami Beach.
According to JCS, the demand for fresh produce, meats and goods that meet the specific dietary laws for Passover is particularly high. TREIS pulled together a team of volunteers who spent the day purchasing and donating non-perishable staples and canned goods, fresh produce, meat and frozen items to meet those requirements.
This day of volunteering served as the kick-off for TREIS’ philanthropic initiative campaign, which serves to partner the firm with various local nonprofit organizations throughout the year. Following the donation, Bonnie Schwartzbaum, director of the JCS Kosher Food Bank, led a guided tour of the facility for all of the volunteers.
“Having grown up in North Miami Beach and now as I raise my own children here, this city is very special to me,” stated Adam J. Tiktin, president and broker, TREIS. “JCS is a remarkable organization that works extremely hard to provide for those in need, and they rely on the community for support. Having the ability to give back at such an important time such as Passover is very meaningful, and I am proud of my team for supporting this important initiative,” he added.
The JCS Kosher Food Bank is the only food bank in South Florida to which those who observe kosher (kashrut) dietary laws can turn. JCS’ Kosher Food Bank provides food to more than 380 families and nearly 100 Holocaust survivors on a monthly basis.
Kosher Food Bank recipients are able to select and ‘shop’ during pre-arranged, scheduled appointments to ensure privacy and confidentiality. Kosher Food bank supplies critically important food items and other daily necessities, as well as evaluates clients’ overall needs and arranges for appropriate support services. Because dignity is of the utmost concern, private one-on-one appointments are scheduled at convenient times.
For volunteer opportunities with other nonprofit organizations, please contact Matthew Kushner at TREIS at 305-363-4750 or 844-4-TIKTIN.

NCJW Miami's Mother's Day Luncheon celebrating immigrants will take place on Wednesday, May 9, 2018, at Temple Israel, and will begin at 11 a.m.
This is an event for mothers and daughters, aunts and nieces, grandmothers and great grandmothers.
With the school year being almost over at the time of our event, we thought that daughters in school might be able to miss a day for this important and special occasion.
Host committee members are asked to bring 4-5 people to the event. Tickets are $54 for members, and $72 for non-members.*
*A NCJW Annual Membership is currently $40, and non-members may contribute an additional $22 to become a member when they purchase their ticket.
Following is some additional information:
We are beyond thrilled to honor Robin Straus for her many years of time and devotion to NCJW Miami and our community, with The Myra Farr Volunteer Service Award.
This important and meaningful event will be a celebration of immigrants. Our guest speaker is Ruth Behar, and our lunch will be prepared with love by the Syrian women refugees of Zaytouna.
Ruth Behar is a Jewish Cuban immigrant, who won The 2018 Pura Belpré Award for her book, "Lucky Broken Girl".
In "Lucky Broken Girl", Behar draws from her childhood experience to tell a story that celebrates Latinx experience while affirming the resilience of children facing both universal and specific challenges.
Zaytouna was founded on a single gesture of gratitude. It is a conscious driven enterprise whose mission is to help women resettle in South Florida by creating permanent gainful employment by producing delicious packaged foods from the Middle East. They simply believe that food can bridge the cultural divides that separate us.
We hope to see you on May 9! Questions? Contact Amy Bloom at email@example.com or 305.607.9028.

Sunday, April 15 • 4:00pm The Alper JCC Sablotsky Cultural Arts Center presents a Jazz Concert of the Israeli and American Songbook - a unique musical project where classical Israeli songs are played in a jazz style. It is common in jazz that the American songbook is played in jazz but to the best of our knowledge, no one has taken the Israeli songbook and played it in a jazz style. This concert features legendary jazz musician, Ira Sullivan, as well as Marc Berner and Gideon Vigderhous and additional musicians of the rhythm section who will lend their musical creativity to the ensemble, making it a joy to listen to.
Ira Sullivan is a true jazz legend whose roots go back so far that he was jamming with the cool cats in Chicago for the birth of Bebop. Ira Sullivan is multi-faceted musician and composer who calls Washington, D.C. his birthplace. Around 1963, Sullivan moved to Miami to raise his family. And now over 50 years later, he will be performing at the Alper JCC’s own Russell Theater. Tickets: $15 JCC Member • $20 Community
Call 305.271.9000 x268 or email firstname.lastname@example.org for tickets or more information.
Russell Theater at the Alper JCC, 11155 SW 112 Avenue, Bldg. 4, Miami, FL 33176

Temple Beth Sholom Brotherhood invites you to a stirring story of sports, patriotism and personal growth. HEADING HOME charts the underdog journey of Israel’s national baseball team competing for the first time in the World Baseball Classic.
After years of defeat, Team Israel finally ranks among the world’s best in 2017,eligible to play in the prestigious international tournament. Their line-up included several Jewish American Major League players – Ike Davis, Josh Zeid and ex Braves catcher Ryan Lavarnway – most with a tenuous relationship to Judaism, and never having set foot in Israel.
Their odyssey takes them from Tel Aviv and Jerusalem where they are greeted as heroes, to Seoul where they must debunk their has-been, wannabe reputations. As their “Mensch on a Bench” mascot tags along, the team does much soul-searching, discovering the pride of representing Israel on the world stage.
Special thanks to the Stowe family for generously underwriting this film-screening
