Dear community member:
We are looking forward to celebrating the High Holidays soon. Again, many community members have requested that we continue the Yom Kippur services at the Huntington Hilton. As before, Lederman caterers will provide pre and post fast meals.
This year due to space constraints by Hilton Hotel, we have booked a limited number of rooms. We must finalize with the hotel, the number of rooms we need early on. We are, therefore, requesting that all interested community members make their reservation as early as possible. Click here for Flyer and more Info

Town Minyan Friday Nights

It has been over 15 years that the Town Minyan started at the MYC office. This Minyanhas grown to a very successful morning minyan where weekly shacharit services are popular. We also started a Friday Night minyan at the same time. Although we have been having this minyan for the past 15 years and normally do have a minyan, we have not become as strong as the morning minyan. There are many people who live in town and near the Town Minyan location in Great Neck Road, but do not attend our own minyan. Many attend other non-community minyans, many travel to Steamboat Road and many just do not attend. During these summer weeks we have been struggling to have a minyan on Friday nights and have had to cancel the services two weeks in a row. If this continues, it will be the first Mashadi community minyan that has to close because of lack of attendees. We urge all those who are in the vicinity to attend this minyan. This is a child friendly minyan with people bringing their small children to the services. The services on Friday nights start at the same time as at Shaare Shalom, currently during the summer months at 7:15 PM. Hope to see many of our community members there.
