Temple Beth El building outside


Temple Beth-El was built in the early 60's by architect, Morris Lapidus, a Miami based architect who designed The Fountainbleu, Eden Roc Hotels, and other iconic 50's and 60's buildings now symbolic of Florida's history.  His work is now considered historically significant and is known for whimsical details like curved glass walls and nonlinear shapes (much like you will find in our main sanctuary.)  The sanctuary seats 350 worshippers, while the rest of our site includes a large social hall for simchas and congregational events (seating 270 for dinner and 450 for performances), a library (seating 80) and the Founder's Hall, a youth, education and programming center built in 2001 (seating 80 in our all purpose room, 100 in the courtyard outside the Founder's Hall, 100 outside the all purpose room, and 25 in the Founder's Hall Foyer).
