new synagogue of palm beach

Welcome to the New Synagogue of Palm Beach, an inclusive Modern Orthodox community in the heart of Palm Beach, Florida.

The New Synagogue of Palm Beach is an open, friendly, and respectful community in which residents of Palm Beach County as well as people from around the world feel at home. We invite you to join our online community and become a part of our Synagogue Family.

In the Beginning


We knew we had something different from the very beginning.  

It was 2002 when a small and diverse group of men and women came together to make a new synagogue home. 

Our founding member, Dan Abraham, brought an entrepreneurial spirit to Judaism, never seen before.  He re-invented what it means to be a Modern Orthodox community devoted to Torah, Israel, and Mitzvot. 

We made change happen in the Jewish community of the Palm Beaches by opening our doors at the New Synagogue of Palm Beach and inviting our friends and neighbors to join our family.


New Synagogue of Palm Beach is a close, welcoming, and downright friendly community.

One of the challenges we are currently facing is communal social isolation. We have set up an online platform for classes where we can get together and continue strengthening ourselves through Torah study, prayer, and mindfulness. Also, we have a Virtual Social Roundtable in which we discuss topics relevant to the times.

We would love for you to join our online community! Read more about our Online Events.


Rabbi Barak Bar-Chaim

You won’t be bored learning about the Torah ever again. Rabbi Barak Bar-Chaim will teach you something new, give you an “ah-ha” moment from Torah, and help you reflect on Jewish values that are relevant to the way you live your life today. Read more about Rabbi Barak Bar-Chaim.

Be inspired! Listen to Rabbi Bar-Chaim LIVE! Join our Live Online Daily Prayer Gathering (Su-F at 10:30am), a class in which Rabbi Bar-Chaim recites Psalms, Avinu Malkeinu, and a prayer for the complete healing (refuah shleimah) for all those in need of healing, as well as delves into The Path of the Just (a classic spiritual development text). For further inspiration, join our bi-weekly Book of Psalms (Tehillim) Class (Tuesdays & Thursdays at 11:15am). Read more about our Online Events.

Mindfulness practice enhances: peace of mind, physical and psychological well-being, relationships, focus, creativity, and resilience.

Mindfulness practice can also: deepen our connection to God and to each other; actualize Jewish teachings of kindness, compassion, patience, love, peace, gratitude, generosity, etc.; and make our prayer and Jewish practices more meaningful.

Join our Live Online Judaism & Mindfulness Class (Wednesdays at 2:00pm) to learn about awareness, the ego, and Judaism, and to feel the tension melt away. Read more about our Judaism & Mindfulness Class.
