WELCOME TO TEMPLE BETH-EL OF GREAT NECK

As we celebrate our 90th anniversary – there is no better time to be a part of all that is happening at Temple Beth-El. 

Beth-El is home for more than 2,300 men, women, and children. We are a place where we come to pray, celebrate, and learn. It is a place where minds are open, friends are made, tradition is honored, and change is welcome; a place of solace and sanctuary, reflection and rejoicing, song, and study. As we seek to meet the spiritual and educational needs of a diverse Jewish community in a caring, innovative Reform temple, we encourage participation and respect individual choices. We welcome you to learn more about us.

  • Thank you to our TBE 90th Anniversary Gala Journal sponsors!

    Tuesday, June 11 | 7:30 to 9:30 PM
    Temple Beth-El is collecting new and gently worn footwear through June 8 to help Holocaust survivors struggling to make ends meet. Funds2orgs.com will exchange these shoes for funds to help Holocaust survivors obtain money for foods and clothes.

    Help us reach our goal of 2,500 pairs by dropping off shoes, sneakers and cleats into the bin in the temple lobby.

    Please put your best foot forward and join us in the multipurpose room on Tuesday, June 11, from 7:30 to 9:30 p.m. to help rubber band the shoes together and bag them, so they’re ready for pickup.

    Make a difference you can feel in your sole!

    For more information, contact Jaqui McCabe jmccabe@tbegreatneck.org
