About the Cheder

How It All Began

The Story of The Cheder

Rabbi Tzvi Neuhaus, the Rav and founder of Miami Torah Center, is a well-known figure in the Miami Beach community. He dreamed of opening a thriving school for the local boys, filling a gap in the Miami Beach community’s infrastructure. So, he approached Rabbi Yaakov Burstyn, a 5th generation Miami native, and asked him to be the Menahel of a new local boys’ Cheder.

And that’s how The Cheder of Miami was born.

  • Provides  a consistently happy, wholesome, and warm atmosphere

About Ahavas Torah of Miami Beach

To some, their shul is the place they go when they need to catch a minyan. Ahavas Torah is different. It’s so much more than that. Over the past few years, Ahavas Torah has become a true center for learning, spiritual growth, and community for the entire Miami Beach neighborhood.

It’s The Cheder that Miami Beach has been waiting for.
