THE CHRONICLES OF THE LAST JEWISH GANGSTER

THE CHRONICLES OF THE LAST
JEWISH GANGSTER

An exclusive presentation with
MYRON SUGERMAN

Tuesday, March 1, 2022 | 6 PM

Myron Sugerman, also known as The Last Jewish Gangster, did business with some of the most dangerous characters known to the public. Myron will tell us his story of rubbing shoulders with dangerous men and legendary mob figures like Longie Zwillman, Meyer Lansky, Joe “Doc” Stacher, and many others. The story covers everything from his dealings with the fearsome Cali Cartel to his attempt to help famous Nazi hunter Simon Wiesenthal track down the Angel of Death, Josef Mengele in Paraguay. The remarkable journey contains something to pique the interest of any listener–Gritty crime stories, harrowing adventure, twentieth-century history, and the Jewish religious philosophy–and the perspective of a man who has lived a long life and seen more than most of us have even imagined seeing.

Rebuilding after the Loss

Rebuilding after the Loss

Rebuilding after the Loss

Bereavement group

Whether we lose our spouse or life partner unexpectedly or after years of illness, the impact is profound. Although to some extent we must go through the loss alone, it can be helpful to have an emotionally safe environment to share feelings, fears, hopes, and coping strategies to help us get through the weeks, months, and yes, years, of adjusting to life without our “other half.”
If you believe you could benefit from the guidance of a grief group and the company of compassionate people going through a similar process, please join us.

January 10, 24, and February 7. Please plan to attend all 3 sessions.
Time: 10:30-12noon.
Location: Jewish Community Synagogue

844 Prosperity Farms Rd, North Palm Beach, FL 33408
Cost: $75 ($25/session)

Group facilitator: Audrey Ades, LICSW, PsyD had a clinical practice in the Boston area for 23 years before moving to Florida in 2008. During that time, she worked with clients individually and in groups.

If you have questions about whether this group would be appropriate for your situation, please text Audrey at 617-306-4151 to set up a time to talk.

Monthly theme: Stories

Bring your favorite old Yiddishe story (or Bubbe Mayse)

Bring a family photo and tell us about your family history!

Nu, vilst redn a bisele yidish? (nu, want to speak a little Yiddish?) An event for Yiddish enthusiasts the world over, the JCS Yiddish club is an informal monthly gathering to celebrate mame-loshn. Hosted by Rebbetzin Chani Ezagui, sessions take place in English and are liberally peppered with Yiddish.

In the spirit of a club, each session includes ample time for audience questions, group discussion, and, time permitting, knock-down, drag-out arguments. Attendees need not know any Yiddish to attend, though some familiarity with the language is highly recommended. It’s not taught in South Florida schools, public or private, lets keep it lebedik — the Yiddish word for alive.

Join for some Yiddish nostalgia with monthly themes that will take you back to the good ‘ole days – every first and third Thursday of the month!
