Temple Beth-El is a place where we come to pray, celebrate and learn. It is a place of solace and sanctuary, reflection and rejoicing, song and study. It is a place where minds are open, friends are made, tradition is honored, and change is welcome. We encourage participation and respect individual choices. We seek to meet the spiritual and educational needs of a diverse Jewish community in a caring, innovative Reform temple. For 700 families, Temple Beth-El is home. We welcome you to learn more about us.

The Great Neck Shabbat Project is the realization of our community unified. Together, we will experience the spirit, splendor, and sanctity of Shabbat. As we read Parashat Noach, we will remember Noah’s rainbow and celebrate the Jewish diversity within our Great Neck community. The table is set. All are welcome. Come take your place!
On Wednesday evening, October 22, the women and men of our community met at Temple Beth-El for an inspirational Rosh Chodesh Circle led by Ferri Sedaghatpour and Rabbi Tara Feldman. Here are the Facebook photos of the event.
On Thursday evening, October 23, a Challah Workshop was held at Leonard’s Palazzo, Great Neck.
On Friday and Saturday, October 24-25, we invite you to experience Shabbat at TBE or at another local synagogue. Our Shabbat Eve service begins at 7:00 p.m. Afterward, we can partake in a community-wide Oneg Shabbat followed by Learning Sessions at Great Neck Synagogue beginning at 9:00 p.m. On Shabbat morning, we meet for Torah Study at 9:15 a.m., followed by a Learners’ Minyan at 10:30 a.m.
To further enrich the Great Neck Shabbat Project experience, why not host or be a guest for a Shabbat Eve dinner or Shabbat Afternoon lunch? Please sign up by October 15.
A Shabbat Afternoon Walk from Old Mill Road to Allenwood Park, with members of several synagogues, is planned. We’ll meet at TBE at 2:45 p.m.
We conclude Shabbat with Havdalah and a free community-wide concert, featuring world-renowned musician Sandy Shemuely and his band, at Great Neck North Middle School at 8:00 p.m. Family seating is on a first-come, first-served basis, so plan to arrive early.
Here's a one-page summary of the events and services that pertain to Temple Beth-El members.
We hope you’ll take advantage of these unique opportunities to celebrate Shabbat with the greater Great Neck Jewish community!
