Rabbi Solomon Schiff's long career includes leading interfaith work, giving invocations on the United States Senate Floor, the White House and Miami Dolphins home games and meeting two popes, the Dali Lama, five U.S. presidents and three Israeli prime ministers.

People can now read about these events in Schiff's recently published memoir, "Under the Yarmulke: Tales of Faith, Fun and Football," that's filled stories, lessons and jokes.

Schiff, a Miami Beach resident and the director emeritus of the Greater Miami Jewish Federation's Community Chaplaincy Service and executive vice president emeritus of the Rabbinical Association of Greater Miami as well as a founding member of the Federation's Holocaust Memorial Committee where he currently serves as its chairman, recently presented his memoir to 140 people at Books & Books in Bal Harbour where all but 10 copies were sold out. The book has also been well-received by actor-comedian Jackie Mason and Hall of Fame football coach Don Shula.

"I've been here a long-time and I've built what I believe is a fine reputation and people are anxious to hear what I've done all these years with my community work and so it's [memoir] catching on," Schiff said regarding the book's success.

Debra Linn, Books & Books' events and marketing director, said his presentation was lovely.

"It was one of those nights where everyone in the room was happy," she added. "People wanted to be happy for Rabbi Schiff and you can't help but be happy when you're around him."

Schiff recaptures his journey from local cantor for High Holiday services in a Bronx synagogue to internationally recognized rabbi in this memoir. Schiff also speaks about his life-changing relocation to Florida with his wife Shirley where he would develop an obsession with the Miami Dolphins. He was friends with the team's founder, Joe Robbie, who invited him not only to provide invocations at their games, but also to travel with them to its twoSuper Bowl appearances in the 1980s. He's been invited to do the invocation once every year at Dolphins home games and has enjoyed it.

"It was terrific for me and every year my kids always went with us [he and his wife]," he said. "They gave us front row seats and it was an exciting time of our lives."

When asked what he hopes readers can learn from the book, Schiff responded that he's hoping the book "will go over the top in promoting good will, respect and mutual working together."
