The Miami Beach Community Center has been a forerunner of informal educational programming in the Ramat Gan area for over 25 years. Infants to seniors participate in the center’s activities on a weekly basis. The “Inbal” program, a Senior Citizens club, provides a variety of programs for senior citizens including sports, arts and crafts, lectures, and coffee mornings. During Rosh Hashanah and Passover the center facilitates the distribution of food parcels to members of the community in need. Intensive Bar/Bat Mitzvah programs are available for disadvantaged youth, who would otherwise not have the opportunity to experience a Bar/Bat Mitzvah celebration. The project creates a year‐long environment of learning and enrichment for Bar/BatMitzvah candidates and culminates in a group Bar/bat Mitzvah.
