From a Minyan to a Community

Shaare Ezra is a vibrant and Orthodox Sephardic Congregation, which has grown in, leaps and bounds from a small Shabbat Minyan to a full fledged community.

A few years ago the Sepharadim of the Miami Beach area decided to form a Minyan just for the Holidays. Mr. Abe Franco initiated the move dedicating the Shul in memory of his father Mr. Ezra Franco  Z”L and with the help of Rabbi Issac Sharbani  Z”L . The Shul grow under the leadership of Rabbi Yosef Galimidi and other Rabbanim and at present is led by Rabbi Yehoshua Sova.

 

    

RABBI YEHOSHUA SOVA

Rabbi Yehoshua Sova brings an exciting, growth-oriented and energetic approach to The Shaare Ezra Sephardic Congregation. Rabbi Sova has been a Community Rabbi in Miami since 2013 and an active member of the Miami Beach community since 2008. He was Rebbe at Yeshiva Toras Emes and was previously the Assistant Rosh Kollel at The Miami Kollel Boker where he was actively involved in preparing and delivering classes to community members. Before his arrival in Miami, Rabbi Sova was a Community Rabbi in Denver, Colorado and Dallas, Texas. He has been dedicated to working with others to facilitate mutual growth and a deeper appreciation for personal and spiritual achievement. He has experience and success working with adults and children, with diverse backgrounds, interests and knowledge base. He focuses on creating a partnership with each individual to ensure a customized approach to personal advancement. Rabbi Sova tailors his lectures and classes to appeal to the specific audience with backgrounds ranging from strong Yeshiva education to those having their initial exposure to Judaism.

Rabbi Sova, together with his wife Chaya Leah, an Ultrasound Technologist, have successfully developed and implemented learning programs which meet the needs of the community and as a result have witnessed increasing participation at classes, events and Minyanim as well as increased interest on the part of the participants. Rabbi Sova has a strong foundation in Gemara and Halacha and utilizes his technical knowledge together with his ability to genuinely connect with others, to guide families and individuals through various aspects of Jewish Law, life cycle events and familial/social situations.

Rabbi Sova’s warm and welcoming approach encourages children and adults to seek out his counsel and advice. His home is open to all and he is comfortable engaging individuals on a wide array of topics.
