Lecture: “Jews of Florida: Centuries of Stories”

May 76:00 pm

Heritage Lecture Series Presented by The Colony Hotel & Cabana Club

May is Jewish American Heritage Month. We’re pleased to welcome Marcia Zerivitz, founding Executive Director of the Jewish Museum of Florida from Florida International University for an engaging and enlightening evening!

Florida hosts the nation’s third-largest Jewish community whose history is surprising! This comprehensive history of the Jews of Florida from colonial times to the present is a sweeping tapestry of voices spanning centuries. This group has been integral to every area of Florida’s growth, from tilling the land and developing early communities to boosting business, industry, education, politics, the arts, tourism, and sending humankind into space.

Marcia initiated the recognition of Jewish American Heritage Month in our United Statues Congress.
