Welcome to Temple Chaverim!

chanukah family

Become a part of the most dynamic Reform synagogue on Long Island! Join Temple Chaverim today!

Many individuals and families on Long Island are looking for a Jewish home. We would love to be that place. Parents might be looking for a great religious school, empty-nesters for a place to meet new friends and enrich their knowledge of Jewish issues, seniors for a community of active learners and engaged worshippers -- or perhaps you're just looking for a warm and welcoming Jewish community where you can celebrate holidays, learn about Judaism and make meaningful friendships.



If you're already a member of Temple Chaverim, TELL YOUR FRIENDS! We find that most of those who join our temple family already know someone who is a member. YOU are our best "advertisement!"

If you're thinking of joining, you should feel confident in knowing that some of your friends are ALREADY our members!

We will make it very easy for you to feel comfortable in our Jewish home. Simply contact our Executive Director, Eileen Schneyman, at (516) 367-6100 ext. 108 or This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..

Family Services are the first Friday of the month at 6:00pm (September through June). During July and August, Friday evening Shabbat Services begin at 7:30pm.
