  • Brazil this Summer: FIFA World Brazil this Summer: FIFA World Cup 2014

    • From: TrippinTammy
    • Description:

      FIFA Brazil ExcitementNothing more exciting is scheduled for this summer than FIFA World Cup 2014 in Brazil. Sports fans the world over will be making their way to Brazil for the international men's football (soccer to those in the United States!) tournament that is scheduled from June 12 to July 13, 2014. 

      World Cup has a long history; this year marks the 20th FIFA World Cup, with the first World Cup being in Argentina in 1930. It has been held every four years since then, with the exception of 1942 and 1946 due to World War II. In other words, World Cup is on par with the Olympics. 

      FIFA stands for Fédération Internationale de Football Association, which oversees the sport. The tournament consists of 32 teams competing at venues within the host nation; this is the World Cup Finals and is the culmination of the previous three years of play and qualification. Currently, the champion is Spain. They won the tournament in South Africa in 2010 and are favored to win.  

      This is just the second time that Brazil was chosen to host the competition. FIFA chose Brazil after deciding that the tournament should be in South America. The last time the tournament was held in South America was in Argentina in 1978; the last time in Brazil was 1950. 

      There will be 64 matches played in twelve cities across Brazil in new or totally renewed stadiums. These matches will include all of the world champion teams since the World Cup began in 1930---Italy, Germany, Uruguay, England, France, Argentina, Spain and Brazil. 

      Brazil has a storied World Cup history as well, with five championships and once fielding the most well-known football player worldwide to ever play the game--Pele, who made 77 goals in just 92 appearances, Brazil's all-time leading scorer, who made a name for himself by making the winning game against its country's rival Argentina at the age of 16. Maracana stadium

      Awesome way to spend a week, or a whole month, in Brazil! My plans are to spend a week in Brazil seeing some of the sights, and I have already scored some tickets for myself and my brother and will be in the stands for the Spain vs. the Netherlands match on June 13 in Salvador! 

      I also got a great tip about transportation from a friend of mine who has spend lots of time in Brazil going to conferences. She said the taxi drivers sometimes scam tourists and it was safer to set up transfers online with Brazil Airport Transfers. She even said her plane was hours late and the driver was still waiting for her with a sign. That sounds like great service!

  • Jewish Museums of North Americ Jewish Museums of North America

    • From: laurierappeport
    • Description:

       

      The Jewish population of the United States stands at barely 3% of America's total residents but the community has been an intergral part of the American landscape since Colonial times. Throughout the country museums, small and large, exist which attest to the unique role that Jews see for themselves in America and their commitment to their heritage.

      Wherever I travel I try to search out Jewish museums. Every region gives its own flavor to the American Jewish experience and by observing them I enjoy the opportunity to see the American Jewish world in all is diversity.

      Jewish Museum of Oregon

      In the mid-1800s the German Jewish immigration to American began to gain momentum. Most of these immigrants settled along the East Coast but some adventurous pioneers moved westward. In 1849  two German Jewish immigrants traveled to Oregon and settled in the frontier town of Portland. By 1853 enough additional Jewish men had arrived in the town to create the need for a boardinghouse for Jewish bachelors and  the Jewish community continued to expand.

       

      Today Portland has a vibrant Jewish community. The Jewish Museum of Oregon traces the Jewish presence in the northeast with a wide range of exhibits that help you appreciate the sacrifices that the early Jewish settlers made to come and live in the Pacific Northwest. The museum houses a large archive that contains documents, photos and artifacts that document the Jewish immigration and settlement in the region. You can also listen to some of the old-timers whose memories are recorded via the museum's  oral history program.  

       

      Modern Portland Jewish history is on display via temporary exhibits which display Judaica and elements of Jewish culture and tradition. These exhibits are not necessarily unique to Oregon, but their inclusion in the museum ensures that the exhibits meet the needs of present-day visitors for Jewish information. Films, concerts and lectures are scheduled throughout the year -- the website provides information about these events.

       

       

      Jewish Museum of Charleston

      It may seem incongruous to have a full-blown, high quality Jewish museum in a city with a miniscule Jewish population but 200 years ago there were more Jews in Charleston than in almost any other American colony. Charleston is the historical home of one of North America's first Jewish communities. The Charter of South Carolina, written in 1669, granted liberty of conscience to all residents, specifically noting "Jews, heathens, and dissenters." Spanish, Portuguese and Dutch Jews saw Charleston as a haven where they could  live freely as Jews. Charleston was a center of Jewish life until well into the 20th century and a congregation still remains.

       

      The Jewish Museum of Charleston displays a wide range of exhibits that explore Jewish culture, showing how Jews celebrated and commemorated holidays and rituals hundreds of years ago till today. The museum's permanent exhibition -- Culture and Continuity: The Jewish Journey examines the Jewish experience of the last 4000 years as it is perceived through various art forms. The display area presents a diverse collection of archaeological objects, ceremonial implements, photographs, videos and interactive media that offers an overview of the American Jewish experience.

       

      The museum is located in the Kahal Kadosh synagogue. Kahal Kadosh was built in 1749 to serve the Sephardic (Spanish and Portuguese) Jews. It became one of America's first Reform Temples when the changing demographics of the Charleston Jewish community created a need for change in the mid 1800s.  The Museum traces the history of this evolution as well as of the Reform reinterpretation of Jewish traditions, the interaction of Jewish community of Charleston with other cultures and the impact that these historical events have had on American Jewish life.

       

      Breman Jewish Heritage Museum

      There are Holocaust Museums all over the world but the Breman Jewish Heritage Museum, located in Atlanta Georgia, tells the story of the Holocaust by exploring the lives of over 400 survivors who made their way to Georgia and Alabama after the war.

       

      Using documents, photos and biographical details of the survivors the museum demonstrates the progression of the Holocaust years, starting with the persecutions and moving on to the ghettos, the concentration camps and, for very few, final freedom.

       

      Holocaust survivors that made their way to the southern United States have become successful and valued members of their communities. These people gave their time, money and memories to  the museum to contribute to Holocaust education in their community. Probably the most moving part of the museum involved the survivors' stories which personalized the exhibit in a way that photos and documents can never achieve. The Breman museum adds a great deal to the public's knowledge and understanding of the Holocaust.

        

      Milken Archives of Jewish Music

      The Los Angeles-based Milken Archives of Jewish Music was created by the Milken Foundation as a resource through which the history and the evolution of American Jewry can be traced by examining Jewish American liturgy and music. Beginning with data that documents the 17th century Sephardic Jews who arrived from Brazil, the Archive documents the unique songs and chants that are associated with American Jewish history.

       

      The first Jews in America were of Spanish and Portuguese origin. After they escaped the Inquisition they moved to Holland and from Holland they joined the expeditions to the New World. When Portugal conquered Brazil from Holland and brought the Inquisition to South America the Jews fled northward to the new American colonies. They brought their Iberian traditions and Sephardic culture with them and early American Jewish worship was characterized by Sephardic melodies and liturgy.

       

      German Jews began to immigrate to America in the mid-1800s. Some synagogues incorporated the new German customs, including those of the German-based Reform denomination, into their services. By the late 1800s a great immigration that would eventually encompass over 2 million Eastern European Jews was underway -- this wave laid the groundwork for an American Jewish community that, until today, is mostly Ashkanazic. The Milken Archives has created recordings that trace each of these groups through their prayers, especially Ashkanazi cantorial music. As a researcher who is interested in American Jewish history, I found numerous helpful resources and materials available at the Archives. The Archives also offer these resources online.
