Long before Miami Beach became a hotspot for Jewish retirees fleeing cold winters there was a Jewish presence in Florida. Despite not officially being allowed to live there until 1763, Jewish immigrants escaping expulsions and antisemitism were among the state’s earliest settlers. The state now has the nation’s third largest Jewish population.
On Tuesday, July 11, at 8:30 p.m. on Zoom the East Brunswick Jewish Center will present a free program on the History of Jews in Florida with Marcia Jo Zerivitz, founding executive director of the Jewish Museum of Florida located at Florida International University. Learn about how the state’s Jews have been integral to its development through pioneering efforts in promoting tourism, space exploration, agriculture and the arts, producing business, science and political leaders, among others.

Although free, donations are appreciated and registration is required at ebjc.org/florida. For more information go to ebjc.org. To learn more about the museum go to https://jmof.fiu.edu.
