Exploring Jewish South Florida: A Book Talk on Zoom with Author Paul Kaplan
Please join us on Zoom for a talk with author Paul Kaplan, for an engaging and enlightening lecture inspired by his second book, Jewish South Florida. Like his first book, Jewish New York, the South Florida book is a history and guide to neighborhoods, synagogues, and eateries. Beyond the stereotype of elderly Jews visiting sunny beaches and stopping in at New York-style delis lies a rich history and Jewish cultural tradition. You’ll see rare vintage photos, explore some of the best Jewish eateries, hear the stories behind the region’s cultural landmarks and learn the little-known history of how South Florida became one of the largest Jewish communities in the country.
A New York City-based author with a collection of works spanning from biographies to cultural guides to business, Paul Kaplan’s fascination with travel and the history of places led him to pursue writing as an avenue through which to share cultural experiences and universal themes. In addition to the Jewish New York and Jewish South Florida books, he also published with Pelican a biography on Lillian Wald: America’s Great Healthcare and Social Reformer. Upcoming books include a biography on Irving Berlin and The Progressive Era (1890-1920) in New York. He also published a business book -Essentials of Thought Leadership and Content Marketing.
There will be Q & A after the presentation.
