Mordechai Lichy

Chabad Spanish Center of Coral Springs, Hebrew Academy of Margate
Coral Springs, Florida

Mordechai Lichy, is the founder and spiritual leader of La Sinagoga, the Spanish congregation which attracts Jews from South and Central America. As the son of Cuban immigrants, Lichy enjoyed growing up in Miami under the watchful eye of his Nona with Ladino as the spoken language in their home.  He also has firsthand knowledge of what it means to discover the richness of Jewish heritage through Chabad; as his parents, proud but non-observant Jews, sent young Mordechai to a Chabad elementary school.
