Lubavitch Educational Center In Miami Launches Project, Largest Jewish School in the World
LEC is Set to Expand with a new $30,000,000 building.
LEC is pleased to announce plans to expand its facilities with the construction of a new 215,000 square foot building on its sprawling eight acre campus, to augment the other three campuses already in operation. The project aims to meet the growing demand for education and provide state-of-the-art facilities for students and faculty.
The new building will feature modern classrooms, cutting-edge science and technology labs, a performing arts center, and a gymnasium, Social hall among other amenities. The expansion will allow the school to accommodate the ever growing student body and expand its academic and extracurricular offerings.
The project is made possible by the generous support of donors and community members who have already pledged over Four Million Dollars towards the fundraising goal of Thirty Million. The school is still seeking additional contributions from the community to complete the project.
LEC has been a leading institution of Jewish education for over 55 years, serving students from all backgrounds and traditions. The school’s commitment to academic excellence, Jewish values, and community engagement has made it a cornerstone of the Jewish community.
“We are thrilled to be embarking on this exciting project, which will allow us to continue to provide the best possible education for our students,” said Rabbi Benzion Korf, Dean of LEC. “We are deeply grateful to our supporters who have made this project possible, and we look forward to welcoming even more students to our community.”
The construction of the new building is expected to begin in 2024, with completion targeted for March 2025. The school will continue to operate during construction, with minimal disruption to daily activities.
