The New Building

Construction Has Begun! 


April 7, 2017 / 11 Nissan 5777

On the Rebbi's birthday (and my Dad's) we move into the future with the execution of the expansion building construction contract!!!

- Mitch Feldman, Shul President




Our Community. Our Future. Our Family.



Over the past 35 years, we've accomplished a lot together.

When Rabbi Sholom & Rebbetzin Chani Lipskar moved to South Florida in the late 1960s with the blessing of the Lubavitcher Rebbe, there were hardly any Jews in Bal Harbour and Greater Miami had little Jewish religious activity. Today, 40% of Surfside and Bal Harbour are Jewish families and the Shul hosts multiple daily Minyanim, Torah classes, and programs for Youth, Families and Seniors as well as a beautiful Montessori Pre-School.


We're excited for this next era of growth. Our expanded building will allow us to grow every aspect of our operations; our impact, our devotion, our care for others, our engagement with every Jew in 33154, and ultimately allow us to grow our future generation’s

Jewish involvement and continuity.

The expansion will include a new and larger Pre-School, new Youth lounge and study areas, new Sephardic Sanctuary, new Women's lounge, new Men's club, roof terrace, new offices and a beautiful new and larger Social Hall for community and life celebrations.

Please check back here regularly for updates on the new building, dates for our groundbreaking and dedication opportunities.

When Rabbi Sholom D. Lipskar started The Shul over three decades ago, he began with a simple mission: To fulfill The Rebbe’s directive to assist the Jewish Community in their growth and spread the light and joy of Judaism. With our expanded building, we take the next step in our pursuit of continuous growth. Together, as a community, GROW!

Our Two Slogans; “Over The Top” “Get It Done” Continues To Grow.
