Welcome to
Lubavitch Educational Center
Where Torah Learning is a Way of Life

Our Mission

Our mission is make a Torah-true Jewish and general studies education available to every Jewish child, regardless of background, financial ability, level of education or commitment.  Our goal is to offer an education that builds in the students the knowledge and feelings to live a Jewish life, enables them to reach their personal and academic potential, and inspires them to contribute positively to their local and world-wide Jewish community.

Our History

From a small building on Washington Avenue, with a nucleus of 12 children, Rabbi and Mrs. Abraham Korf and a small group of supporters, began to make their mission a reality.  The need for a Torah-committed educational institution was great, and it was not long before the fledgling school outgrew its facility and moved to larger quarters in Southwest Miami. In 1973 the Yeshiva Gedolah Rabbinical College became an important part of the educational center, when eleven students when sent from New York to start a program of higher learning.  It became the first school of its kind to be established in the southeastern United States.

Continued expansion was made possible with the building of the flagship facility, Landow Yeshiva, in Miami Beach, which served the community from 1974 to 2003.   During this time Beis Chana High School for Girls and Klurman Mesivta High School for Boys were formed to meet the demands of an ever-expanding enrollment.  It was not until 2003 that Lubavitch Educational  Center made its most dramatic move by relocating its preschool, elementary school and Beis Chana High School to its present facility in Miami.  Today Lubavitch Educational Center boasts a large beautifully renovated 7-story facility on a sprawling campus, with a large enrollment of students from Dade, Broward and Palm Beach counties.  The Miami Beach campus has undergone a complete renovation to serve the Yeshiva Gedolah Rabbinical College and Klurman Mesivta.
