Boca Raton Synagogue - West Boca Satellite Minyan


Boca Raton, Florida is one of the fastest growing Orthodox Jewish communities in America. With the Boca Raton Synagogue (BRS) membership now over 600 families, the latest expansion of the Boca Raton Synagogue is the introduction of a new satellite Minyan in West Boca.

BRS West is a minyan affiliated with Boca Raton Synagogue.  As such, it is an Orthodox Synagogue with Torah values, a deep attachment to Jewish tradition and strong emotional bonds with the State of Israel.  BRS West seeks to foster a warm, family-friendly environment, open to all, where each person can experience meaningful prayer in a participatory service; learn Torah; have a personal relationship with our rabbi; and experience and enjoy a true sense of community.  

BRS West is conveniently located in the Hillel Day School, in the area of Route 441 and Glades Road in western Boca Raton, within the Boca Raton eruv. The location is just a short car ride from the Original Montoya Circle location, as close or closer to all the Kosher establishments and within walking distance of the Hillel Day School, the Jewish Federation of So. Palm Beach County and the JCC. The synagogue was organized by a small group in 2002 in coordination with Boca Raton Synagogue; conducted its first weekly shabbat minyanim in 2003; and has since tripled in numbers.  It now offers all shabbat and yom tov services; youth programming; daily daf yomi classes; a womens’ shiur; and shabbat divrei torah and classes.

Please note that the entire facility is fully accessible to the elderly and the handicapped.

The mission of the BRS West Congregation is:

  • To extend the Zionist Orthodox mission of Boca Raton Synagogue under the guidance of our Rabbi, Mordechai Smolarcik, and our rebbetzin, Hadassah Smolarcik;
  • As such, to maintain a house of worship reflecting Orthodox Judaism and Torah values.  Our services are conducted according to Minhag Ashkenaz;
  • To encourage Torah study and Jewish scholarship, for both adults and youth, and a strong association with Jewish traditions, language, literature and history;
  • To welcome Jews of all backgrounds;
  • To foster a deep sense of community through mutual respect, hospitality, and social programming on Shabbat, at holiday times, and during the week for both adults and youth;
  • To render to the members and the community such spiritual, moral, educational and other services as are generally offered by synagogues.
