In January 1994, a small group of dedicated people started holding traditional Shabbat services at Temple Emanu-El in Palm Beach. This gathering was transformed into a community with the arrival of Rabbi Moshe and Rebbetzin Dinie Scheiner. Based on the philosophy of outreach and inclusiveness, the Scheiners were passionate in their desire to “make a difference.” From its humble beginnings, Palm Beach Synagogue has blossomed into a flourishing center of Jewish life and activity that prides itself on being a place of warm welcome for Jews from all walks of life and all levels of Jewish observance, while maintaining its abiding adherence to traditional Jewish law and observance of mitzvot.
With its inviting spirit, the synagogue is a place where people are committed to the love and support of our fellow Jews, religious traditions, the community at large and the State of Israel. PBS is housed in a beautifully renovated edifice in the heart of Palm Beach, two blocks north of the Breakers Hotel and is the recipient of the American Institute of Architects 2016 Religious Art and Architecture Award for Liturgical Interiors. PBS offers unique programs in Jewish education and communal life, numerous youth activities, holiday services and celebrations, daily morning and afternoon/evening minyanim and weekly Shabbat services.
