Overview
The dynamic and never-before-told history of Greater Miami's Jewish community is recounted here for the first time by renowned local historian Seth H. Bramson. Beginning with the arrival of Miami's first Jewish settler, Isidor Cohen, in 1896, Bramson's exciting story takes us through Miami's early days to the present and includes the years of "restricted clientele, " as well as the Jewish owned buildings, businesses, stores, clubs, hotels, restaurants, schools, temples and philanthropic organizations. Bramson's unique writing style, coupled with a host of never-before-published photographs and a website of special features, invites the reader to take a historic look at the people and places that have made the Jewish impact and influence on the area such an important part of the fabric of the community.
