Shalom uvracha - Peace and blessing to you! It is my pleasure to welcome you to Temple Isaiah of Great Neck as a member, guest or potential new member. I hope you will find our temple a source of spiritual solace, intellectual stimulation, and friendship. We are an intimate congregation, where "everyone knows your name," and we pride ourselves in caring for one another — whether it's a ride to temple on Friday evening, or a call just to see how you're doing (of course, if you desire privacy, we'll respect that also). I believe Temple Isaiah is unique among liberal Jewish congregations in the degree of freedom you will feel in expressing your own Judaism. We are a combination of traditional values and practices mixed together with the freedom to try out different ideas of worship. Each of us is on his or her own spiritual journey. Temple Isaiah is an ideal place to allow you to find your way home. For more, please see my columns in the monthly Bulletin
Long-time Temple Isaiah members, we believe that our co-presidency allows us to bring complementary strengths to the job. Gail is an attorney who practices under the name Gail Jacobs, and Terry is an educator. Our goal is to enhance congregants’ connections to the life of the synagogue in ways that are personally meaningful to them, while maintaining the traditions of the synagogue’s 45 year history.
We believe that one of Temple Isaiah’s unique strengths is its friendly, small-town environment, led by a thoughtful and caring Rabbi. It is a place where congregants feel at home as they worship, learn and socialize together. Gail and Terry welcome your energy and in-put regarding the unique collaborative effort that is Temple Isaiah of Great Neck. If you have never visited, we invite you to attend services or a program in the near future. We look forward to meeting you. For more, please see our columns in the monthly Bulletin.
