Dear Members and Supporters,

We are excited to announce that at long last the Miami Jewish Community Center (JCC) has begun construction on our new 35,000 square-foot facility located on Pine Tree Drive. For decades, the Miami Beach Jewish community has been in great need of a facility and institution that will serve to unify its diverse constituents and that is exactly what the new Miami Beach JCC will do. While we still have continued fundraising work to do, at long last, the dream of our new Miami Beach JCC will become a reality.

Miami Beach has a thriving Jewish community and is one of the most historic Jewish communities in the world. We will now have a haven where the entire community can participate in social, recreational, educational and cultural programs in one convenient location.

The Greater Miami Jewish Federation has been an avid supporter through this process and has agreed to guarantee the bond that will finance the construction of this important community center, which is expected to be open in September 2012. This project could not have come to fruition without the help of the Greater Miami Jewish Federation, the City of Miami Beach and all of our donors, especially the family of Russell Galbut who provided the naming gift for the new Galbut Family Miami Beach JCC. We are also thankful to all of our members who have continued to support us, use our services and attend our events.

The Miami Beach JCC’s new facility will serve as an essential community resource offering opportunities to enrich the lives of families, adults, teens, children and seniors seeking vibrant programs and services in a unique and inclusive environment. The new facility will allow us to provide expanded programming, new and improved spaces for sports and recreation, and a comfortable gathering space where the Miami Beach Jewish community can connect.

The new facility will include a state-of-the-art fitness center, a 4,200 square-foot outdoor swimming pool, as well as a multi-purpose playing field. Additional highlights include a large gymnasium, a social hall, and special rooms dedicated to the arts, parenting and gymnastics programs.

We have also launched our new website. The new design and layout will make it easy for you to register for programs and stay up to date on all of the exciting news and developments as we go through the building process.


Jerry Sokol, President
