Join us at the Museum with Chicago’s Emmy-Award-winning Orbert Davis, trumpeter, composer, and educator; along with his Jazz Quartet for a musical performance inspired by the hustle and bustle of 1970s South Beach. More than music, this program is a celebration of the resilience, camaraderie, and indomitable spirit of the Jewish community that once called South Beach home.

A mere two square miles with over 20,000 elderly Jews, including New York transplants and Holocaust Survivors, South Beach was once a “shtetl in the sun” – an energetic, thriving hub that held Jewish services outdoors with sun-drenched beaches as a backdrop. In the 1970s, photographer Andy Sweet captured the essence of this colorful and vibrant culture with his camera, dispelling the common stereotype of “God’s Waiting Room.”

Sip on a complimentary signature cocktail, dance the night away, and embrace the lighthearted spirit of the “shtetl in the sun.”
