About Us


Welcome to Magen Israel of Great Neck, as we celebrate over 25 year of educating children

in a fun and creative Torah environment.

With over two decades of service to the community, our summer program has given hundreds of children a meaningful and thrilling summer experience over the years. Magen Israel enjoys a well-earned reputation as a trendsetter, with innovative ideas, creative programs, and new activities being introduced continuously.

Many a child has been known to wait all year to come back, from preschoolers to our senior division, children delight in the warm and spirited, Jewish atmosphere of Magen Israel. Our children enjoy a wide range of activities including swimming, sports, creative movement, arts & crafts, baking, and so much more.

From offsite trips to onsite entertainers, there’s never a dull moment. Torah learning is a predominant part of our week and our Yeshivacation program incorporates daily classes in in-depth Mishnayot, Chumash, and Gemara.

Founded in Ladispoli, Italy in 1989 with the blessing of the Lubavitcher Rebbe, the Gan Yisroel Summer Camp has been dedicated to the singular purpose of providing every Jewish child with a positive and meaningful Jewish education.

The camp moved to Kew Gardens in 1991, and from the handful of campers in Shaare Tovah to the 230 campers who attend our Great Neck camp today, Gan Yisroel has been a high point in the lives of the thousands of children who have walked through our doors each summer.
