Our Story 

Our synagogue began as Sunny Isles Chabad in 1994 even before Sunny Isles Beach was incorporated or named as a city.  A small group of dedicated individuals leased a small office space on the second floor of the RK Plaza at 170th Street.

With the latest burst of developments over the past 28 years, the motels on Collins Avenue turned into residences and attracted people from all over.  Our community is mostly made up of people who have relocated here from other parts of the country and the world.  At our synagogue, they find a welcoming community where they can make friends, and celebrate holidays and personal milestones.

Since the synagogue quickly grew, it became very clear that a much larger facility was needed. Various moves followed until eventually, the congregation moved to the ground floor of the King David in 2004.

At our Chabad Center people tend to develop lasting friendships and truly feel a part of the community. You’ll find services that are spiritually uplifting and meaningful, plus sermons that are relevant, inspirational, and topical.  You will also enjoy our unique combination of cherished traditional values and contemporary ideas that successfully meet the needs of modern Jewish families.

We are certain that you will be able to feel comfortable and inspired, no matter your level of observance.  This, plus amazing programming and a strong emphasis on congregational participation are some of the reasons our center has grown so rapidly.
