In the past five years rabbi Yeshurun’s turned Skylake synagogue from a small shul into a full fledged community becoming not only a first class synagogue with a rapidly growing membership but also into a meeting place for religious, social, educational, cultural, and family events. Rabbi Yeshurun’s creative programs have provided opportunities for Jews of all ages, from all walks of life and of all distinctions and backgrounds. His involvement with establishing a successful Hebrew school and NCSY youth program have drawn many young families to our shul.
