About Us

Our Young Israel Congregation began some 15 years ago with a small minyan in the Coronado hotel on Collins Ave. The Coronado hotel does not exist anymore but our Young Israel does, and we have blossomed into the second largest shul in the community of Surfside, Bal Harbour and Bay Harbor. Our membership that started with just a few families in 1999, has grown to over 180 families and our Young Israel has now outgrown our present location, which has become too small to accommodate our membership and our visitors.

About Us - Shul

We therefore purchased an adjacent property so that we could build a home to accommodate our membership as well as plan for future growth in our community. We have had to overcome many hurdles over the last 5 years to receive our final approvals from the Town and we are now in the midst of our sacred mission to build a beautiful 24,000 square foot edifice to house our new shul. Our new building will, G-d willing, be a magnet to attract many more families to our community, as well as being a beacon of Torah, spirituality and inspiration to the entire community.

Our Mission
Our Young Israel Congregation, serving the communities of Bal Harbour, Bay Harbour, Surfside and Indian Creek, strives to provide an environment for enhancement of Jewish life in our communities. We provide daily, Sabbath and Jewish Holiday prayer services, study groups, lectures in Jewish thought and history, to enrich not only our membership, but the local as well as the greater Miami area community.
