The Miami Beach Jewish Community Center is set to begin construction on a
35,000-square-foot facility on Pine Tree Drive this month. The project
is funded by a $11 million bond and by donations, one of which comes
from Russell Galbut, the head of condominium developer Crescent Heights.
“While we still have continued fundraising work to do, at long last,
the dream of our new Miami Beach JCC will become a reality,” said Jerry
Sokol, president of the JCC. The facility will be named the Galbut
Family Miami Beach JCC. The project is slated to be completed in 2012. [SFBJ]
