Two fun and creative workshops in which participants painted tiles using an ancient Moroccan technique called Zuak took place in the Futernick Family Art Gallery on May 8. The project was led by artists Hadasa Yitchak and Yael Rom from our sister city, Yerucham, Israel, sponsored by a grant from the Greater Miami Jewish Federation. Look for a permanent installation of the finished tiles that will be displayed in one of the JCC's public spaces in a few weeks!
From 1943 to 1945, roughly 150 Muslim Albanian families sheltered and saved 2,000-3,000 Jews. In a five-year project, photographer Norman Gershman photographed and interviewed many Albanian Muslims whose families acted so courageously. When asked why they had risked their own lives, their response was "Besa," the code of honor deeply rooted in Albanian culture and incorporated in the faith of Albanian Muslims. View these fascinating photos and their stories. Gallery open Tuesdays and Fridays and by appointment.
