The Director of the Biala Organizations, Rabbi Shmuel Haber, is the leader of the The Shtiebel Ostrova , an innovative new paradigm Jewish community based in the Aventura, Florida. Through music, food, art, movement, and discussion we seek to inspire, connect, and transform our diverse members and the world.

In Yiddish, Shtiebel means “little room,” and hearkens back to pre-Modern Jewish communal gathering places. We seek to return to this idea of a simple place where one can experience Jewish culture and community.

Our events are experimental by nature. They are transformative encounters with the best food, music, art, and philosophical discussion.
