The tour includes an overview of the more than 100 years of Jewish history of Miami Beach; discussion of significant Jewish people and organizations, both present and past, in Miami Beach; and a review of various architectural styles found in the city, including Jewish contributions.
Terry Bookman challenges the current agenda, assumptions, mind-set, and sacred cows of the Jewish establishment which has largely accepted as a given and become resigned to its communal decline. Instead, Beyond Survival offers an alternative vision for the Jewish future.
Author Genie Milgrom presents her new book, The Recipes of her Fifteen Grandmothers, a collection of recipes and stories dating back to Crypto Jewish times when the Jews were hiding underground while outwardly pretending to be Catholic. The grandmothers carried these recipes and all their traditions as they travelled from Spain to Portugal, Canary Islands, Colombia, Costa Rica and finally Cuba where Genie was born.
