TBI President Matt Engel

Temple Beth Israel is truly a very special place, and we are proud of our unique role as Port Washington’s only Conservative synagogue. Our congregation is large enough to have something for everyone and yet intimate enough for you to meet, know and become friendly with many of our congregants.

As important as our activities are, what truly makes Temple Beth Israel special is the warmth of the community and the people who are part of our synagogue. So many members have become lifelong friends through their temple affiliations. Countless members are there to support each other in times of happiness and sorrow.

Our congregation is very active both through committees and individually, with the common goal to work tirelessly to improve TBI and the Port Washington community. We offer a wide assortment of programming for our entire congregation. TBI education programs include a thriving Preschool, Religious School and Hebrew High, as well as a wide range of adult education and Lunch and Learn activities.  Social events range from Latkes and Vodkas, Monte Carlo Night, Comedy Club, Ethnic Dinners, Kids’ Bingo, and Mom’s Night Out, just to name a few.  And the TBI clergy and congregation are here support our community in times of need through visits to sick congregants, delivering meals to the homebound and home prayer services for those sitting shiva.

We want to meet you and hear from you. Let us share our second home with you in person.
