Shul Events & Announcements


  • Those who will be davening from home are encouraged to pray at the same time as one of our minyanim, thereby connecting the prayers of the individual with those of the congregation.
  • IMPORTANT SAFETY NOTE: The coronavirus is still among us, and Florida is currently experiencing a large spike in Covid cases. Please exercise caution to help slow the spread of the disease. Our guidelines in shul should be a model for how we act at all times: wear a mask, maintain social distancing, wash your hands regularly. Let's make sure our interactions with the outside world and with others are done in a deliberate and cautious manner. It is a mitzvah to go above and beyond the basic recommendations in order to protect our family and our community- and literally save lives.

XiGong: Improving Mental and Physical Health

What is Xi Gong?
Xi Gong is a mind-body-spirit practice that improves one’s mental and physical health.
Xi Gong benefits include lowering blood pressure, improving balance, quality of sleep, pain relief, strengthening immune system, increasing bone density, and more.  Xi Gong also has been proven effective in depression and anxiety relief, and stress and stress-related illnesses.
Xi Gong can be practiced standing or sitting.  People with physical limitations can easily adapt the Xi Gong movements to their capabilities and continue to reap the benefits of practice.

PERFECT PAIR is a project of our new summer initiative, Project Community 2020, in which a mature adult will be matched up with a teen with similar interests to build a friendship and to share a Living Legacy of wisdom, values, humor, experiences and more. As mature adults, you have so much knowledge and life experience to share with the younger generations. Through weekly talks and discussion, we hope you will build a special bond that will enhance your life and the life of your “perfect pair.”

  • The interactions will be in a virtual setting – either by phone, WhatsApp video call, FaceTime, ZOOM, or another way in which you are comfortable interacting so that there are no concerns of transmission of COVID-19. 
  • If you are part of the Sandwich Generation, and have a parent or other older relative who may benefit from this program, feel free to complete a form for that individual (with his/her permission).
