Talmudic University

Miami Beach, FL

The Talmudic University campus, located on a former motel site, is intended, over time, to be a home for Jewish learning and living. It is planned to include classrooms and housing for students, faculty, and members of the Orthodox community as well as a Bet Midrash (Torah study hall) prayer shul (synagogue), and gardens, basketball courts and other athletic amenities.
 
Townhouses will provide for senior staff and will, potentially, be available for sale. The purchases of which will subsidize the University. Classrooms and student dorms will be created, via renovation of the existing structure, into a new modern midrise with balconies designed to accommodate succot, thatched roof huts used for religious celebration. The succot must have unimpeded space above them. Zyscovich designed the succah balconies in a way that incorporates them as an architectural feature enlivening the overall plan.
 
The housing units are being created specifically to provide for the large size of traditional Orthodox families. Accordingly, they will have kosher kitchens and dining rooms, which serve as the social center of the home and will be more sizeable than living rooms.
