The Jewish Museum of Florida-FILI (JMOF-FIU) shares the story of over 250 years of Florida Jewish history, art, and culture with all members of Miami Beach's vibrant community. The organization’s goal is to explore and illustrate the richness and diversity of Jewish life as well as the unique ways in which Florida Jews influence and are influenced by the historic and cultural dynamics of Florida, the nation, and the world. JMOF-FIU is also dedicated to multicultural education and, through the lens of Florida Jewish history, seeks to highlight issues of discrimination against all marginalized people. Through exhibitions, public programs, and an extensive archival collection, JMOF-FIU aims to demonstrate how the challenges of the immigrant experience are shared by all ethnic groups in Florida.
