Why A Building?


  • Due to lack of current space, we can no longer offer FREE High Holiday services open to the entire community.
  • Young Professionals aren’t affiliating, they feel disconnected, and are dropping out of religion entirely.
  • There are NO Kosher Restaurants in the Tampa Bay area. It’s a practical problem, and unbecoming for any Jewish community.
  • The Youth of today are losing interest in Jewish education, due to over-stimulation in every other aspect of our lives.
  • Modern technology is increasing the stress level in our lives, causing us to lose focus on what’s truly important.
  • Our community is fragmented, with Jews today identifying themselves as Reform, Conservative, Orthodox, or non-affiliated. This division threatens to accelerate our assimilation.
