Chabad of South Broward is known in South Florida as a leader in Jewish education, outreach and social services. The organization, founded in 1980, is home to over forty institutions and agencies and has twelve Chabad centers in Broward County.
Chabad of South Broward’s programs are varied. The Friendship Circle pairs local teenagers with special-needs children. Project Pride is a drug prevention and education program. The organization houses the only mikvehs in the Southeastern United States available for the physically challenged, as well as Florida’s only Jewish teachers’ college for women.
The organization, located in Hallandale, will be renovating its facilities in a major $3.3 million expansion. It’s welcome expansion for a facility that is bursting at the seams – the preschool has over 100 children on a waiting list; the Hebrew school is overflowing’ the Teachers’ Seminary shares space with the shul and kollel.
Dedications for the new facilities may be made in memory or in honor of a loved one. Contact Rabbi Raphael Tennenhaus at firstname.lastname@example.org to make a contribution or for more information.
