About This Community

Nestled in a nook of lush and gorgeous greenery within the Mandarin area of Jacksonville, our Northeast Florida community is warm, loving, and incredibly friendly. Everyone is accepted and embraced by our shared values of respect and decency toward our fellow friends and neighbors.

The Etz Chaim and Chabad shuls offer daily minyanim and learning for all ages and levels, as well as family events, guest speakers and community celebrations throughout the year. A new Carlebach minyan has sprung up with congregants from both shuls who wish to infuse song and dance into their kabbalat shabbat. The shuls are judgment-free zones, where everyone is valued, with no labels.

The Torah Academy of Jacksonville serves students from preschool through grade 12 and the Chabad cheder serves preschool through grade 8. Regardless of income, school vouchers are available for all families, greatly easing the burden of yeshiva tuition.
