Historically, East Fort Lauderdale was home to only a handful of Jewish residents. In recent decades, East Fort Lauderdale's business, arts and culture scenes have emerged and with it a thriving Jewish community composed of many young professionals and empty nesters.
In order to best serve this growing population, the Jewish Federation of Broward County decided to develop the Eastside Comunity in an effort to engage local residents in their Jewish community and enrich their own Jewish life. The Eastside ‘boundaries' are considered to begin at Port Everglades Expressway and extend all the way to Lighthouse Point.
If you would like to get involved in the Eastside Community we have an active Eastside Group that gathers about every other month at a member’s home to socialize, deepen their Jewish connectivity, and discover the many levels of impact our work has on the community.
