The Rabbi Alexander S. Gross Hebrew Academy held a groundbreaking for a new, regulation-sized indoor gymnasium on Friday, September 21. The ceremony was held at the school’s west campus field, located at 2400 Pine Tree Drive in Miami Beach.

The Hebrew Academy’s dream of a gymnasium is coming to fruition thanks to the generosity of community donors. Miami Beach Commissioner Ed Tobin, Founder’s Club members, Builder’s Club members, all gymnasium donors, Hebrew Academy faculty, students, staff and many community members attended the event. During the ceremony, a proclamation from Miami Beach Mayor Matti Herrera Bower was bestowed upon the donors who made the construction of the gymnasium possible.

Following the groundbreaking, students in grades 6-12 moved to the west campus auditorium to participate in the annual Chesed Assembly and Fair. This meaningful event set the tone for student service for the school year. The fair presented 20 non-profit organizations that were on hand to provide information about their organizations and the opportunity for student to sign up as volunteers. This year the significance of giving back to the community is even greater, as students are being provided a gymnasium due to community philanthropy. The fair brought the idea of community giving and philanthropy full-circle.

The Rabbi Alexander S. Gross Hebrew Academy is an Orthodox Jewish college and yeshiva preparatory school, serving students through grade 12, that inspires and equips students to reach their fullest potential both academically and spiritually by focusing on their individual attributes and instilling eternal Torah values in a changing world.
