To help members of our vibrant Jewish community choose a place to worship, Federation and the Rabbinical Association of Greater Miami have compiled a directory of area synagogues. We encourage you to review this list and contact a synagogue for membership information.
Make this Jewish New Year a time for renewal for you and your family, and a time to find personal meaning and spiritual connection with your community.
