Welcome to Temple Judea


          Welcome to Temple Judea.  This could very well be our motto, “Welcome…”  For nearly six
decades, Temple Judea has been known as the place to come for those seeking a spiritual home. 
“More than a place to worship, Temple Judea is where I am embraced as a member of a large and diverse family.”
          From the time of our founding as a Reform Jewish synagogue in 1955, we have committed to
welcoming all!  Our founding leadership set our inclusive tone by ensuring that interfaith families
should be welcomed into our congregation.  Temple Judea was the first synagogue on Long Island
to open its doors to AA and still to this day we proudly offer our classrooms as meeting places for
those recovering from this addiction.  With respect to children with special needs, we have always
made every possible accommodation to ensure that every child receives a Jewish education and
becomes a Bar or Bat Mitzvah.  Temple Judea also has a hearing loop installed in our sanctuary,
which electronically assists modern hearing aids, allowing all to clearly hear music and words
coming from the bima.
          Today, we reassert our mission to commit to the principle of inclusion. Everyone is
welcome regardless of age, marital status, sexual orientation, race or financial means. 
          It is my pleasure to offer you an open invitation to experience the warmth of Temple Judea’s
embrace for yourself.  Please feel free to attend any of our Friday night Shabbat services.  (See
our calendar to know the start times of our services and simply attend when you can.)  I will be
standing in the lobby ready to greet you with a smile and a “welcome”.
            Shalom U’veracha – with peace and blessing!
