About the Jewish Museum of Florida – FIU
The Jewish Museum of Florida – F.I.U. is the only museum dedicated to telling the story of 250 years of Florida Jewish heritage, arts and culture. MOSAIC: Jewish Life in Florida, the Museum’s core exhibit, depicts the Florida Jewish experience through photographs, artifacts, documents and oral histories from pioneer families to the state’s most recent arrivals. The exhibition was an 8-year statewide grassroots collecting effort, led by JMOF Founding Executive Director Marcia Jo Zerivitz. The traveling exhibit generated so much interest that by 1995, MOSAIC evolved into the Jewish Museum of Florida and the traveling exhibit became the Museum’s core exhibit, which is continuously updated to reflect Florida’s growing history. In Fall 2012, the Museum became part of Florida International University(FIU). This historic partnership strengthens awareness of JMOF’s internationally recognized institution, broadens its academic offerings and increases scholarly research of its collections. FIU will utilize the Museum’s facilities and collection to implement an academic plan consistent with JMOF’s and FIU’s shared educational, research and outreach missions.
