Cuban Hebrew Congregation

Cuban Hebrew Congregation

Established in Miami Beach in 1961 as a place of worship and meeting for thousands of Jews fleeing Cuba.

Also known as “El Circulo,” the Cuban Hebrew Congregation was established in Miami Beach in September 1961. Soon after its inception, the congregation quickly became a powerhouse in the Miami Jewish community, as well as for those in Israel. With its main synagogues on Michigan and Lenox Avenue in Miami Beach, the Cuban Hebrew

Congregation has almost five hundred member families, each benefiting from the work and efforts of the Congregation to unite Jewish Cubans not only in Miami, but across South Florida.
