Tribesters volunteering at the Children’s Home Society


Miami has the eleventh largest and most diverse Jewish community in the United States. Only a third of that population is affiliated with a synagogue or Federation.

The Tribe, nationally recognized as one of the 50 most innovative Jewish groups in the country, is working to change that by acting as an incubator for Jewish identity, growth, exploration, and leadership for young professionals between their leaving college and having children.

The Tribe offers South Florida’s young Jews an alternative, and it is working. From June 2015 – May 2016 we engaged over 1,000 different young professionals in Jewish community life!  It is clear that we are addressing a real void within our local community.

Tribesters are members of a growing, powerful network of community leaders and like-minded people from all over the globe.
