Temple Israel of Great Neck 75th Anniversary Gala Tribute
We invite you to enjoy this video, which was shown at the 75th Anniversary Gala this past Saturday evening. At the Gala, we honored our congregation and all that the synagogue means to our members.
We hope that this video, inspired by scenes from the movie "When Harry Met Sally", inspires you as much as it did us. As we visited with congregants who joined Temple Israel through the years, what emerged was one theme: a love for our synagogue and for our congregation.
May we continue to be blessed for many years to come.
If you would like to join the Temple Israel archive project, which aims to preserve the history of Temple Israel through the stories and reminiscences of its members, please submit your story and pictures email@example.com.

Waxman High School and Youth House Trip to Israel 2017
UPDATE FROM THE WAXMAN YOUTH'S TRIP TO ISRAEL
After a rather comfortable but long flight (the food was decent too) we landed at Ben Gurion Airport all smiles. After passport control we went out to meet our excellent Israeli staff under the auspices of Ramah Israel.
Straight from the airport we went to the Israel Children's Museum in Holon. The group was split in half for one of two interactive experiences to help us understand a little of what it means to live as a blind person or a deaf person. After some down time at the museum cafe we drove to our hotel which is on a kibbutz on the water. We took a beautiful dusk walk to a cliff side overlook. We showered and enjoyed a warm meal. We then spent time bonding as a complete group. Click here to view some of the beautiful pictures being taken everyday.
