Our mission is to bring authentic Jewish tradition to Klal Israel (all the Jews) in a way that spiritually enriches both ourselves and our world. Bringing new answers to modern questions, we dedicate ourselves to serving God and to seeking to make this living tradition open and inclusive.
"Ivdu et adonai b’simcha"
"Let us Serve God with Joy"
I welcome you with the ancient words of the Holy Temple: “Baruch ha’bah b’shem adonai” ("Be welcome you that come here, in the name of God, and you are specially blessed").
Our synagogue is here for you, Jews of all denominations, interfaith families, and people seeking conversion to Judaism. By blending the traditional with the pragmatic, the old and the new, we are creating a synagogue in South Florida that provides love and understanding for all who need it. The decision to bring Judaism into your life or your life cycle event is significant. You can count on me to officiate, both in your joyous times and at moments when you need comfort and strength. For me, bringing individuals to mayim chayim (the living waters of Judaism) is a most fulfilling spiritual adventure.
