Devorah Leah Andrusier remembers moving to Bal Harbour, Fla., as a teenager when her parents became Chabad-Lubavitch emissaries there. Back then, in the late 1970s and early 1980s, thousands of Jewish seniors, snowbirds and retirees had permanent and second homes in Miami Beach, but Jewish life was virtually nonexistent in the barrier island’s northern tip, which at the time restricted sales to Jews, among other
