Our Shul

HISTORY

 

In 2003, 35 families became the nucleus of a Modern Orthodox synagogue in Delray Beach. These families were the founding members of the Delray Orthodox Synagogue, donating start-up funds in order to convert several stores in the Oriole Shopping Plaza into what is now a lovely, friendly synagogue. Within 6 months, the membership increased to 73 members that included many single members. The Kornfeld-Schwartz social hall was added which continues to be used every Shabbos and Yom Tov, as well as for social events.

 

The first Shabbos was held during Chanukah 2003. The Delray Orthodox Synagogue was formally dedicated in January 2004 with music and dancing with the Torah, lent to us by another Orthodox synagogue. The ceremony was attended by members, friends, and rabbis from neighboring communities. In the years following, members have donated Torahs to our Shul which were also celebrated with music and dancing.

 

ABOUT

 

Delray Orthodox Synagogue, more commonly referred to as DOS, is a vibrant Modern Orthodox Synagogue serving the spiritual and social needs of our members and guests. DOS provides daily minyanim (morning and evening) all year long, Torah learning, and interesting lectures by guest speakers. We seek interesting ways to provide educational learning and social events in an interactive environment.


Our shul has educational programs throughout the season, as well as stimulating Sisterhood functions such as book reviews, informational speakers, entertaining meetings, and social events. Shabbos and Yom Tov services always conclude with a Kiddush, where congregants can mingle in a social atmosphere.

 

There are homes, condominiums and apartments in our area, with varied price ranges, within walking distance of our Shul. There is a Kosher deli/butcher, movie theatre, library, supermarket, shopping and hospital close by. Several Kosher restaurants are within a 15-20 minute drive from the shul.
