The Lighthouse Project is the largest Kollel project in Southeast United States welcoming hundreds of people weekly to learn Torah in an amazing environment. The Lighthouse Project uniquely provides accessible, comprehensive, dynamic, meaningful and enjoyable education of the Jewish tradition.
Lighthouse aims to service the wider community and Jews from all backgrounds, by providing guidance and inspiration to enable each individual to grow and achieve personal fulfillment. To accomplish this, Lighthouse designed an academic lounge setting that is contemporary, modern and colorful; newly updated its library with many wide-ranging books; installed an advanced multimedia center for research and study, and recruited teachers from across the spectrum of communal organizations. As an addition to the many prayer-based Jewish communities in South Florida, Lighthouse will create a learning-based community of shared wisdom and spiritual enlightenment.
