Over three years ago a small group of people saw the need to enhance the concept of a Jewish Community in Lakewood Ranch; it had received little direct attention from Jewish Institutions. LWR is a rapidly growing community in the Sarasota, Florida area. It may have as many as 1400 Jews in a 20,000+ community. The vision was to create the Jewish Club at LWR. This club would then be a vehicle through partnership with other organizations and on a standalone basis to bring a variety of Jewish content programming to LWR. Three years later, LWR is clearly on the radar screen as a meaningful center of Jewish life. Federation now partners to bring some of their best programming to the Ranch. On a standalone basis the Seder, the Break-the-Fast and the Summer BYO get together have been highly successful annual events. This year has seen additional programming including selections from the 92nd Street Y lecture series. In all of the programming, The Jewish Club at LWR has one mantra; "make sure there is time for people to schmooze". The Club has attracted a growing cadre of individuals to share in the work required to move the Club and the Jewish Community forward. The club is open to all LWR residents.
