Join us for a book review from the comfort of your home. 
A link to the Zoom call will be sent to those who RSVP. 

Set over the course of five decades, The Dutch House is a dark fairy tale about two smart people who cannot overcome their past. Despite every outward sign of success, Danny and Maeve are only truly comfortable when they’re together. Throughout their lives they return to the well-worn story of what they’ve lost with humor and rage. But when at last they’re forced to confront the people who left them behind, the relationship between an indulged brother and his ever-protective sister is finally tested.

Yom Hashoah Remembrance

Yom HaShoah, Holocaust Remembrance Day, will take place this year from sundown Monday, April 20 until sundown Tuesday, April 21.

In honor of this meaningful holiday, and in light of the challenging circumstances created by COVID-19, we are presenting the PBS play,
The Soap Myth.

The Soap Myth is a play by American playwright Jeff Cohen. In April 2019, a concert reading of the play was filmed at the Center for Jewish History in New York City.

About The Soap Myth:
Did the Nazis make soap from the corpses of murdered Jews? Fifty years after the end of World War II, impassioned Holocaust survivor Milton Saltzman battles Holocaust historians to include the atrocity of "soap" in their Holocaust memorials and museums. The Soap Myth wrestles with the conflict between survivor memory and historical proof. The play poses such provocative questions as: Who has the right to write history? Who determines the truth? How does a survivor survive surviving?

WATCH THE PLAY HERE and join us on the evening of Yom HaShoah, April 20, at 6:30 p.m. for a virtual discussion conducted by Temple Emanuel in New York City.

REGISTER FOR DISCUSSION HERE


Experience a beautiful short film. In 24 minutes, you will meet some extraordinary people, and hear how they are connected in a profound way.

In the Oscar®-nominated Joe's Violin, a donated musical instrument forges an improbable friendship between 91-year-old Holocaust survivor Joe Feingold and 12-year-old Bronx schoolgirl Brianna Perez, proving that the power of music can bring light into the darkest of times, and that a small act can have a significant impact. Nominated, 2017 Academy Award for Best Documentary Short Subject.

 THE GREAT JEWISH FOOD FESTIVAL - May 19 until the holiday of Shavuot on May 28

JCC Association of North America is excited to share the following opportunity from our partners at The Great Big Jewish Food Fest:
The Great Big Jewish Food Fest is a 10-day online festival celebrating the history, diversity, and excitement for all things Jewish food. Join us for cooking classes, virtual deli tours, film screenings, panel discussions and so much more. All events are free, and we invite donations to help support those in the food industry who have lost critical revenue during the COVID-19 crisis and those who are experiencing food insecurity.

Why now?

The Great Big Jewish Food Fest was created out of a moment of opportunity, as people are at home and in their kitchens, when food professionals are seeking new opportunities to share their expertise, and when a top-tier international festival might be created with relative ease (no travel, no conference facilities, and ironically, no catering to coordinate!).

Who’s it for?

Programming is designed for all ages and interests. Whether you’re an experienced cook or a novice who’s just getting started in the kitchen, you are welcome. Just please make sure to wash your hands before you sit down for a meal.

Visit http://www.jewishfoodfest.org to browse the festival schedule and sign up for events.

Click here to watch Live on YouTube (https://youtu.be/gRr_MUoeQX4)
Broad­cast­er, film­mak­er, con­cert nar­ra­tor, and Book Fair 2018 alum Jamie Bernstein trav­els extensively, speak­ing about music as well as about her father, Leonard Bern­stein. In addition to writing her own scripts and narrations, Jamie writes articles and poetry, which have appeared in such publications as Symphony, DoubleTake, Town & Country, Gourmet, Opera News, and Musical America. Jamie’s film doc­u­men­tary, Crescen­do: the Pow­er of Music, is view­able on iTunes and Amazon Prime and her most recent book, Famous Father Girl (https://bookshop.org/a/7125/9781501118036) , is available at the Detroit Jewish Book Fair’s online store.
Long-time friend of Jamie’s, Ted Chapin, is president of Rodgers & Hammerstein, a position he has held for 30 years. He has spearheaded many a Broadway production during his tenure, including Rodgers + Hammerstein’s Cinderella, the first time the 1957 CBS television-commissioned show has been seen on Broadway, and in a newly adapted version.

Detroit Jewish Book Fair Presents: National Jewish Book Award for Debut Fiction Winners Discuss
Click here to watch Live on YouTube (https://youtu.be/sMJhOSVk1MA)

2018 Award Winner and 2019 Book Fair alum Bram Presser:
Semi-reformed punk rocker, recovering academic, lapsed criminal lawyer and one-time cartoon character, Bram Presser was born and still lives in Melbourne, Australia. For ten years, he schlepped around the world screaming into a rubber chicken with the iconic Jewish punk band, Yidcore, before turning to writing. Since then, his stories have appeared in Best Australian Stories, Award Winning Australian Writing, The Sleepers Almanac and Higher Arc. His debut novel, The Book of Dirt, was released to great acclaim and won the 2018 Goldberg Prize for Debut Fiction in the US National Jewish Book Awards, the 2018 Voss Literary Prize and three awards in the 2018 NSW Premier’s Literary Awards: the Christina Stead Prize for Fiction, the UTS Glenda Adams Award for New Writing and the People’s Choice Award.
Click here (https://bookshop.org/a/7125/9781925240269) to purchase Book of Dirt.

2019 Award Winner Sarah Blake:
In her debut nov­el, Naamah, Sarah Blake vivid­ly con­veys the sto­ry of Noah and the Ark from an unusu­al per­spec­tive — that of Noah’s wife, Naamah. Blake writes with strong, sen­su­al, mod­ern lan­guage, and uti­lizes time trav­el and dream sequences to cre­ate a mul­ti­lay­ered sto­ry. With this book, Blake has tak­en one of the best-known bib­li­cal tales and opened it up in ways both inven­tive and provocative. Her next novel, Clean Air, is forthcoming from Algonquin Books in Fall 2021. Her poetry books include Mr. West and Let’s Not Live on Earth. Find out more at her website: sarahblakeauthor.com.

NSU Lifelong Learning Institute Lectures

Rebecca Staton Reinstein (1 hour 14 minutes)
Ben Franklin was much more than that avuncular fellow in the paintings. Before the Revolution, he was the only American most Europeans had ever heard of – the "inventor" of electricity. He convinced the French to support the rebels with ships, leaders, soldiers, and money despite John Adams' scathing criticism. He evolved from a young man on the rise to an elder statesman and left a legacy we need to appreciate.

Rebecca Staton-Reinstein, President of Advantage Leadership, Inc. works with leaders that have a strong vision and want to turn that vision into a reality with bottom-line results. With her newest book, Conventional Wisdom: How Today's Leaders Plan, Perform, and Progress Like the Founding Fathers, Rebecca has documented successful strategies for approaching all situations strategically. Her extensive research of the winning strategies used by the framers of the U.S. Constitution and contemporary leaders from many economic sectors are helping leaders create robust strategic plans that get results.

Ben Franklin: Jack of All Trades, Master of Most!


The program starts with a message from Elaine Wallace, Dean of the Kiran C. Patel College of Osteopathic Medicine. Then the hour long lecture with Sylvia Gurinsky, entitled:
We Built This City on Rocks and Roads SO What’s Next?
History educator, presenter, writer and guide, Sylvia Gurinsky will trace the evolution of sustainability efforts in South Florida’s homes, neighborhoods and streets through the years.
