Author Talk - Marcia Jo Zerivitz: Jews of Florida: Centuries of Stories
“It’s all about roots and memories and Jewish continuity. Like cut flowers, Jews wither without our roots. Our collective memories are our roots.”
In celebration of the Museum’s 25th anniversary, Marcia Jo Zerivitz will use a PowerPoint presentation to highlight some stories that represent the themes of her newest book. The images reflect inspiring stories of contributions of Floridian Jews and make connections to Florida history and current global issues. Jews of Florida: Centuries of Stories is the first comprehensive history of the Jews of Florida from colonial times to the present. This rich narrative, 434 pages with 716 images, is the result of three-plus decades of grassroots research by Zerivitz, giving readers an incomparable look at this long and crucial history that is the heart of the Museum’s mission.
