We have a very exciting program coming to the Oakland Park library on Thursday, March 26th at 6:00 PM. Mark your calendars! Storyteller Carrie Sue Ayvar will be performing as Rose Weiss, the "Mother of Miami Beach."
Rose Weiss never planned on being a pioneer. She just did “what needed doing.” This feisty, compassionate Jewish mother fought prejudice, created jobs, and helped the needy, all with persistence and a smile. Her life is ample proof that one person can indeed make a difference.
Rose helped transform Miami Beach from a sparsely populated sandbar (where Jews like her could only live in the southernmost tip) into the world famous multicultural metropolis it is today.
Interested in this event? It is free and open to the public, and all ages are welcome. Refreshments will be served. See you there!
