The Jewish Congregation of Venice embraces Jewish diversity. We come from different parts of the country to worship and to socialize as Jews. We choose, at our Jewish Congregation of Venice, not to worship as Reform, or Conservative or any other denomination. It is not necessary for us, to commit to a particular philosophy. We are Jews. We come together to celebrate what we have in common, not highlight or focus on what makes us different. We come together to practice, treasure, celebrate and fine tune our diverse, yet Jewish ways of being. At the Jewish Center of Venice, it is our desire to be welcoming – a place of Jewish belonging, a place where all Jews can find sacred space and acceptance. And most of all – We celebrate our Jewishness. We do our best to knock down barriers and walls; we find our connections and oneness. Enjoy the Jewishness of our Center and be part of the continuous growth that makes us this welcoming place of Jewish belonging.

Temple Beit HaYam was founded September 1993 by a group of dedicated Jewish families who wanted their children to have a Jewish education and a place to worship as a congregation. Early worship was held in temporary space in Sewell’s Point and Stuart. High Holiday services were held in the Lyric Theatre. Our Temple building was dedicated in January 2000.
We are large enough to offer a variety of educational and community programs, yet small enough to maintain a feeling of intimacy. All religious services, social programs and school classes take place in our beautiful Temple located in the Monterey Commons Professional Park. We offer Hebrew and religious training for youngsters from kindergarten through high school. Currently, there are more than 90 students enrolled in our religious school programs. Our active Sisterhood and Brotherhood plan activities and events designed to encourage social interaction and support of our Temple. Concerts, lectures and other events are offered to the Treasure Coast community at large. In addition, our Caring Community and Social Action Committee embody our commitment to tzedakah (justice and giving). Our active Junior and Senior Youth Groups provide important social and informal learning experiences for our teens.
We invite you to visit our congregation and meet our Rabbi Matthew Durbin, Cantor and Religious Education Director Mike Jarvis, Director of Early Childhood Learning Carly Dempsey, and Administrator Noreen Tolman. We look forward to welcoming you into our caring community.
Temple Beit HaYam is a family of families connected by a noble history and an inspiring value system with Jews on the Treasure Coast and throughout the world. We stand together as a Reform Jewish Congregation committed to Torah (life-long Jewish education), avodah (worship through prayer and observance) and gemilut chasadim (the pursuit of justice, peace and deeds of loving kindness). We aim to provide meaningful religious, educational, cultural and social activities for all our members in a warm and inclusive manner. Through these ideals as well as those of social action and tzedakah, we look to add meaning to our lives and the lives of others.

Founded in the spring of 1981 by Rabbi Joel Levine and a group of 12 dedicated families, for the first six years Temple Judea’s home was St. Catherine’s Greek Orthodox Church. In 1987, we built a permanent home on Chillingworth Drive in West Palm Beach, Florida. As Palm Beach County experienced growth and change, so did we. In 2003, we moved north to our new home at the Hoffinger Campus on Hood Road, in Palm Beach Gardens, Florida. In keeping with the dynamic energy of Reform Judaism, we began a new journey and a new chapter in our history. In 2007, we expanded our campus with the addition of a classroom building, the Hoffinger Community Learning Center. Rabbi Yaron Kapitulnik joined our growing temple family in 2010. In the summer of 2020 we welcomed Cantor Abbie Strauss & her husband Rabbi Feivel Strauss. After 34 years, Rabbi Levine retired, becoming Rabbi Emeritus. He and his wife Susan reside in Los Angeles.

Affiliated with the Union for Reform Judaism, Temple Shaarei Shalom is a full-service Congregation dedicated to the dynamic interpretation of Judaism. We are a caring Congregation, sharing in each other’s joys and sorrows as we journey through the cycles of life. We are a growing, involved congregation with a full schedule of activities. Our mission statement is to (a) establish and maintain a synagogue for worship, education, and assembly in accordance with the tenets of Reform Judaism; (b) cultivate love and understanding of the Jewish faith and heritage; (c) stimulate fellowship in the Jewish community; and (d) apply principles of Reform Judaism to the values and conduct of its members.
Temple Shaarei Shalom was founded in May 1992 by 18 people who expressed the need for a Reform congregation in the West Boynton Beach area. They each contributed seed money and met at Santaluces Community High School for Shabbat Services. Early in 1996, as the membership grew to over 200, the Congregation moved to a building at the Boynton Trails Shopping Center. In 1999, the Congregation voted to purchase land and, at the beginning of 2000, voted to build a new temple building, which opened its doors in June 2002. By 2003, the need for additional space caused the Congregation to begin plans for expansion. In 2009, with almost 600 members, an additional 18,000 square feet was completed and named The Tendrich Center for Lifelong Learning. From a core group of 18, we have grown over 450 member households. You can email our Rabbi Anthony Fratello at [email protected].
