JewishTreasures OF THE CARIBBEAN Documenting The Oldest Jewish Sites Of The Western Hemisphere Pg.4


Chairman’s Message HISTORY IS MADE EVERY DAY! I was born in New York and moved to South Florida in 1966. My family roots trace back here to early Jewish pioneers, the Safer family of Jacksonville and Gainesville and the Schulman family of Tampa. I am a part of Florida Jewish History. Many Jewish families have been living in the Sunshine State for generations, but so many others come to Florida every day from various parts of the country and throughout the world. They too are a part of Florida Jewish History! And it is the mission of the Museum to document this history that is being made every day. As I stated in my first message as Chair for the JMOF-FIU Advisory Board: This Museum is a window to the past, a mirror of the present, and a guide for the future. Through our robust programs, insightful exhibitions and educational tours, we are passing down these lessons from generation to generation! I am, once again, calling on all of us to work together to raise and donate funding for this museum — for now and for the future — so that our grandchildren will be able to bring their children to the Museum, learn from our history, and begin to write their own chapter. Together, let’s make history by saving history! Sincerely, Kenneth M. Bloom Chairman of the Board

Exhibit

JewishTreasures OF THE CARIBBEAN Documenting The Oldest Jewish Sites Of The Western Hemisphere

by Wyatt Gallery

September 20 – December 11, 2016 (Members’ Preview With the Artist: Monday, September 19, 2016)

T

his exhibition captures the little-known history of the Sephardic Jews of the Caribbean, as seen through photographs of the remaining historic sites in Barbados, Curaçao, Jamaica, Nevis,

St. Croix, St. Thomas, St. Eustatius and Suriname. These Jewish communities date back to the early 1600s and are home to the oldest synagogues and Jewish cemeteries in the Western hemisphere. While these historic communities now face extinction, these modern day treasures beautifully exemplify the strength of the Jewish people, as well as the surprisingly diverse cultural history of the Caribbean.

HISTORY In the 1600s, the West Indies became a place of salvation for Sephardic Jews who had fled to Amsterdam and Brazil after the Spanish and Portuguese Inquisitions. La Nación, as these Jews were called, were fundamental in shaping the early Caribbean economy through their unique knowledge of sugar cane cultivation, agriculture and an expansive network of trade. Some Jews also joined the pirates controlling the Caribbean seas, and later became influential politicians, plantation owners and bankers to the American colonies. While creating financial success for the European powers, the Sephardic Jews managed to prosper and keep their culture, religion, and customs alive — which led to the continuation and support of Judaism throughout the Americas. Once home to thousands of Sephardic Jews, only five synagogues remain and almost half of the original cemeteries are either falling apart, or have been lost to natural disasters, vandalism, pollution and the elements of time. The few historic landmarks still in use are little known gems of the Caribbean and invaluable landmarks in the Jewish history of survival. Through these photographs, we witness the legacy of Judaism and a rarely explored facet of Caribbean history. 4

ABOUT THE ARTIST Wyatt Gallery received his BFA in photography at the Tisch School of the Arts at New York University in 1997. In 1998, Wyatt received a Rosenberg grant and traveled the Caribbean, photographing spiritual sites for nine months. After spending a month in Trinidad, he knew he wanted to live there and he returned months later on a Fulbright Fellowship and spent two years photographing the diverse cultural history of Trinidad as seen through its religious sites, landscapes,

people and their homes. Gallery has received numerous awards and his work has been widely published in books and magazines such as Esquire, The New York Times and Mother Jones. His photographs have been exhibited throughout the world and are in major private and public collections such as the Museum of Fine Arts in Houston, George Eastman House, New Orleans Museum of Art and American Express. Exhibition Sponsor: Consulate General of the Kingdom of the Netherlands in Miami

Calen Bennett, Adath Israel

ALSO ON VIEW: Calen Bennett: Synagogues in Cuba, 2015 Through December 11, 2016 Photographer Calen Bennett became familiar with Cuban culture early on through his synagogue community, Temple Judea in Miami, as well as the greater Jewish Cuban-American community of South Florida. With relations between the U.S. and Cuba improving, Bennett saw an opportunity to travel to Cuba to document and expose its isolated and diminishing Jewish community. This pop-up photography exhibition depicts life in the Jewish community of Cuba today.

Jews have played a dominant role in the American fashion industry from the late 1800s, when waves of European immigrants fled persecution and pogroms, often bringing with them only the clothes on their backs and their trades. While these immigrants became known for shaping the New York garment industry, many people will be surprised to learn that Jews who settled in Florida have been involved in clothing related businesses in our state since that time. Floridian Jews have left an indelible footprint on this industry, from the pioneering “mom and pop” retailers and department stores that started more than 100 years ago, to the now 96-year-old designer Sylvia Whyte, whose children’s clothing brought the likes of Debbie Reynolds, Frank Sinatra and Zsa Zsa Gabor flocking to her Miami Beach store in the 1950s. Our Florida fashion style is influenced by everything from the guayabera shirts brought by Cuban Jews in the 1960s, to the local architecture, as seen in a 12-year-old entrepreneur’s fashions that incorporate her grandfather’s building designs. Hot Couture: Florida Jews on the Fashion Scene spans the spectrum from designing and manufacturing to dressing and influencing the local and international scene in all types of clothing from beachwear to ball gowns. The exhibition includes women’s, men’s and children’s clothing, shoes, accessories, jewelry, handbags and notions to ancillary services such as fashion photography, law, advertising and design labs. Featuring everything from iconic brands to unique wearable art, bikinis and belts made out of local snakeskins, climateinfluenced golf shirts and stay-dry fabrics and even Florida furs, this exhibition explores the inspiration and tradition that has guided the creative forces behind Florida’s fashion industry for generations and the pride and craftsmanship that defines them.

Education

Teen Docent Program in Second Year Our Teen Docent Program is in full swing for its second year! This experience allows students to develop leadership and public speaking skills, gain people skills, receive community service hours, learn about working in a museum and have exposure to diverse history and art exhibits. To find out about becoming a Teen Docent contact: education@jewishmuseum.com or 786-972-3187. Genna Grodin (pictured in previous issue of Tiles) is an eighth grader at Nautilus Middle School. Her motivation springs from her love of Jewish culture and interest in improving public speaking. Shelly Gottlieb (pictured above left) is an eighth grader at Young Women’s Preparatory Academy. Her bilingual skills from her “Jewban” background are an added plus for our visitors. Shelly has a great interest in Jewish history and “thought this would be a perfect opportunity to both learn and teach visitors —especially about traditional and emergent Jewish culture in Florida.” Romi Levin-Duran (pictured above right) is a seventh grader at Miami Arts Charter and her English/Spanish abilities are also an asset. As Romi says, being a Teen Docent meets her desire to “reconnect with her Jewish identity that was so present in her life as a child. The museum allows me to explore and learn. And, as a teen docent, my learning comes with constant review for guests. This helps me to never forget who I am and where I come from.”

Pop-Up Exhibit

JONATAS CHIMEN:

ON VIEW SEPTEMBER 4–11, 2016 This pop-up exhibition is a mixed-media installation that retells the stories of immigration, adaptation, forced conversions, and hybridization of the artist Jonatas Chimen’s family through their 500-year diaspora. Using the metaphor of a tent, Chimen speaks of the universal immigrant experience of wandering through time and space, as well as of the isolation and secret religious practices which his family was forced to adopt as far back as the Spanish Inquisition in the 15th Century. Foregoing a linear narrative, Chimen has produced a multi-sensory experience of nostalgia by painting, threading, writing and appliqueing on photographs, birth certificates, inquisitional archives and immigration documents.

ABOUT THE ARTIST

Jonatas Chimen Dias DaSilva-Benayon was born in Brasilia, Brazil. He is a Symbolist artist whose influences stem from Sequential Art, Baroque, and Modernism. His classical use of archetypes follows the lines of psychiatrist Carl Gustav Jung and mythologist Joseph Campbell. In addition to his artistic practice, Chimen is a published author of articles on the Iberian Inquisition and the Sephardic Diaspora, a theme that underlies much of his artwork. Chimen holds a Bachelors of Arts in Latin American, Caribbean and Iberian Studies from the University of Wisconsin-Madison and received a Masters of Fine Arts degree at Florida International University.

JMOF-FIU and Global Jewish Studies will be offering another robust season of Academic Programs, including the popular Mondays at the Museum Series. Themes include: Jews of the Caribbean, Cuba, and the Islands. See pages 10-11 for the Fall Semester programs.

COMING SOON Stitching History from the Holocaust December 20, 2016 – March 19, 2017 | Members’ Opening: December 19 In the winter of 1939, Paul Strnad, who was living in Prague, wrote to his cousin Alvin in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, to obtain an affidavit to help him and his wife Hedwig escape the onslaught of Nazi Germany. Paul sent Alvin sketches of Hedwig’s clothing designs, in the hopes that these examples of her work would provide evidence of their financial independence. Despite Alvin’s best efforts to obtain visas for the couple, Paul and Hedy perished in the Holocaust. Years later, the sketches were discovered by Alvin’s family members, and, thanks to the efforts of the Milwaukee Repertory Theater, Hedy’s drawings were brought to life. An original exhibit created by and on loan from Jewish Museum Milwaukee. — Exhibit Sponsor: Funding Arts Network and Robert Arthur Segall Foundation

So What Is The Jewish Museum of Florida-FIU? The Jewish Museum of Florida opened in 1995 in a former historic synagogue that housed the first congregation on Miami Beach. Built in 1936, the Henry Hohauser designed building that underwent a two-year restoration, boasts Art Deco features, a copper dome and 80 stained glass windows. In 2007, the museum expanded into the original 1929 synagogue next door after a one-year restoration, now The Jonathan Symons Building. Both buildings are on the National Register of Historic Places. In 2008, the two buildings were connected with a skylighted Bessie’s Bistro. The museum is much more than beautiful buildings. It is a place that presents its own and traveling exhibits, sponsors cultural and educational programs, houses a Collections & Research Center reflecting 250 years of Florida Jewish history, and communicates Jewish history, art, culture and values to Jews and non-Jews alike in an informal mode. The museum is also a place where Jews of all ages and stripes discover and reaffirm their rich heritage — thus helping to strengthen Jewish identity and ensure Jewish continuity. So how did all this get started? You may already know if you are among those who participated in and enjoyed the exhibit MOSAIC: Jewish Life in Florida that traveled to 13 cities (1990-94). Depicting Florida Jewish history from 1763 to the present, this was a statewide grassroots project to collect material evidence from the time Jews were first allowed to live in the Sunshine State. Thousands of photographs, artifacts and oral histories were gathered from families and this collection continues now in the museum, which was created as a result of the interest and support garnered from the original MOSAIC project. Where the traveling exhibit was the launch, the Jewish Museum of Florida further delves into the state’s rich Jewish history of yesterday and today — for the future. Historic Partnership with Florida International University (FIU) Following the approval of the museum’s Board of Directors, Florida International University’s Board of Trustees and the Florida Board of Governors, the museum became part of the FIU family in December 2012. This historic partnership leverages the resources of the museum and FIU, igniting a new era of interdisciplinary education and research focused on the history of the Jewish experience in Florida, the ways in which Florida Jews influence and are influenced by the cultural dynamics of Florida, the nation and the world, and issues of discrimination against all peoples in Florida throughout history. A key component of the partnership is the relocation of a variety of FIU programs, including the Jewish Studies Certificate Program, to the museum’s facilities. The plan also includes the expansion of academic programs and research endeavors designed to educate FIU students, faculty and the greater Florida community about the challenges of the immigrant experiences shared by all ethnicities in the State. Whether your family has lived in Florida for eight generations, as some have, or just arrived — YOUR story is an important tile in the MOSAIC. Join us!
