Where to spend Shabbat in Miami, Florida
A guide to spending Shabbat in Miami as a tourist.
- Miami is a popular destination for Kosher travelers.
- Direct flights, great weather, and many great Kosher restaurants are hard to say no to.
Here are some of our recommendations, and feel free to leave yours in the comments section:
- Stay in St Regis Resort or the more affordable Sun Harbour Boutique.
- Pray in The Shul (Chabad and Sefaradic Minyan), or Young Israel.
- Enjoy Friday night dinner at Kosh, by reservation and pre-payment only.
- Don’t miss the day kiddush in The Shul.
- Pray at the Learning Center (Chabad) or Young Israel on 41st street.
- Stay at the Fountainbleu or one of the many hotels along the beach.
- We are not aware of any restaurants that serve Friday night meals. How about you? Let us know!
- Often overlooked by out of towners, not only is Aventura the cradle of Kosher Without Borders, it is also a great place to spend Shabbat.
- Stay at the new AC Hotel, the Courtyard by Marriott, or the Turnberry Isle.
- AC Hotel is located closet to Aventura Hospital.
- Many husbands asked us not to mention that Courtyard by Marriott is located right next to Aventura Mall.
- Pray in Aventura Chabad (Ashkenaz and Sefaradic Minyanim), Lev Tov (Sefardic) at the Waterways shops, Young Israel (Modern Orthodox), or K-Space (for young Jewish singles).
- There will soon be a Chabad Waterways opening in the area.
- Check with Aventura Chabad, there is a communal Friday night dinner with a guest speaker about once a month.
- Buy food to go in Sarah’s Tent or Kosher Kingdom, both excellent choices. Sarah’s tent has better parking options and a Kosher ice cream shop next door.
- For your Shabbat walk, head to the waterways shops marina (where Fuego is located) or walk along Country Club Drive to see ducks and people jogging.
- And of course, you will be at most a 5 minute drive from Aventura, Mall.
