Minutes: SFAJL Meeting, March 9, 2015

Meeting Minutes, SFAJL March 9, 2015, Temple Beth Am, Miami, FL

Present: Robin Coller, Heidi Estrin, Etta Gold, Steve Hersh, Steve Liebowitz, Matt Ransom, Jeff Rosenberg, Daniel Scheide, Barbara Weiss, Danielle Winter

Meeting called to order after a delicious lunch provided by Temple Beth Am. Since we had a small group, we spent some time doing in depth introductions of ourselves, getting to really know each other.

Etta Gold spoke about the value of attending the national AJL conference, and showed some "historical" program books from past conferences. We discussed various other resources including AJL's revamped website, and FAU's Judaica Sound Archives, which have expanded to become the Recorded Sound Archives (non-Jewish material is now accepted).

Danielle Winter reprised the presentation she had given previously at Temple Beth Am's Sunday Salon, a talk about children's books in Yiddish based on her research at the National Yiddish Book Center.

Local author Steve Liebowitz talked about his historical novel Devorah: The Covenant and the Scrolls, Book 1.

The meeting was adjourned.
