South Beach Jazz Festival: January 3-5

It’s the perfect music festival to “jazz” up a balmy winter weekend in Miami. This three-day festival won’t just inspire you with its fantastic rhythm and tunes, but also its band members.

With over 34,000 people in attendance last year, you’ll jam to classic, Latin and New Orleans style jazz belted out by Grammy Award winners to toe-tapping local talent. The festival features tickets to free performances along with brunches, masterclasses and a musical film showcase.

Real Estate News Miami Condos with Shabbat Elevators
Last updated June 11, 2021. Whether you refer to it as the Sabbath, Shabbat, Shabbos, or by any other term, your religious commitment to observing a holy day of rest should not prevent you from enjoying a luxury condo lifestyle in the subtropical paradise that is Miami.  For this reason, a number of condo communities provide the convenience of a Shabbat or Sabbath elevator, which is a specially programmed elevator that stops automatically on every floor during the Jewish Sabbath, from sundown on Friday evening until sundown on Saturday of every week.  This service is provided in order to accommodate the Jewish religious law that prohibits religious observers from pushing buttons or operating machinery during the Sabbath. While Miami today is known as a particularly Jewish-friendly metropolis, Jews were not even allowed to enter Miami Beach Hotels until the late 1940s. But by the 1950s they began to lay down roots in Miami Beach and to impact the economy, politics, and social flavor...
