Shtetl in the Sun

By The Temple Emanu-El Streicker Center (other events)

Thursday, November 14 2019 6:30 PM 8:00 PM


$36 includes a copy of the book

By the 1970s, 20,000 elderly Jews had created a yiddishkeit paradise where they spent their waning years strolling the boardwalk, playing canasta by the sea and reprising their youth on the dance floor.

Visit the vanished world of old Miami Beach in the film The Last Resort, based on previously unseen photographs that capture the nostalgia of that tropical community’s complex vitality.

We will be joined by:

Dennis Scholl and Kareem Tabsch, filmmakers, The Last Resort

Brett Sokol, editor, Shtetl in the Sun
