In U.S.A. Chabad Habla Espanol!

Rebecca Rosenthal – Lubavitch.com

CORAL SPRINGS, FL — It’s not bagels and lox at La Sinagoga de Jabad de Coral Springs brunch. Here the fare is arepas and cheese pies, a taste of the old country shared by regulars and newcomers at this Spanish Chabad center.

An offshoot of Chabad of NW Coral Springs under the auspices of Rabbi Hershy Bronstein, Rabbi Mordechai and Shoshana Lichy, the Spanish congregation attracts Jews from Columbia, Venezuela, Ecuador, Argentina, Brazil, Mexico, El Salvador and other points across South and Central America.

Drawn to El Norte for economic and political reasons, Jewish immigrants from Spanish speaking countries are growing. A 2004 study by the Jewish Federation of Greater Miami found that nearly ten thousand, or 10%, of Greater Miami’s Jewish population identified themselves as Hispanic Jews.

A Pew Research Center report released last Tuesday projects that by 2050, the number of Hispanics in the United States is expected to triple, enlarging their slice of the population to 30%. Chabad will be ready for them.
