Kehillat Magen Israel Beit Knesset

With the rapid spiritual growth within the Great Neck Jewish Community came the need for a unique kind of Beit Knesset.

Founded on the teachings of the Ben Ish Chai and the Baal Shem Tov, Congregation Ohel Menachem is a treasured spot for those seeking a joyful and intimate Shabbat experience.

Upon the completion of our new center at 778 Middle Neck Road, we hope to expand our efforts in spreading Judaism throughout our community.
