Tenements, Cabanas, and Barrios: Where North & South Jewishkeit Meet

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

The session begins with an overview of places of origin for South Florida’s Jewish population. What narratives describe influx from places in the North, or from the South? Most importantly, how have attendant values and attitudes made SoFl a complex and evolving landscape that is unique, befuddling and proposing next generational issues for natives? The 2014 Greater Miami Jewish Federation Population Study offers some ammunition, along with a culling of other anecdotal observations, that have been overheard, somewhat overlooked, or otherwise seen in print. This will be a highly interactive interview and assessment of participants using Web-based tools like Google Polling and Kahoots.
