Welcome from the President

Manetto Hill Jewish Center is an egalitarian, conservative synagogue in Plainview, NY.

In 1969, MHJC was established in Plainview as an egalitarian, conservative synagogue. Our members comprise different age groups, levels of observance, family types, interfaith families and members of LGBTQ community. Everyone is welcome.

MHJC provides to our members a full range of services: Shabbat, High Holiday, evening minyans, holiday events, adult classes run by Rabbi Neil, Hebrew school, monthly events and optional membership to Men’s Club and Sisterhood.

MHJC can be part of your family life. It can be a place of prayer, an extension of your home where your children can learn about Judaism, and an opportunity to meet other families who are looking for a child-friendly Jewish environment.

One of the great traditions of our MHJC is that we are run by volunteers. As volunteers we work together on committees. There are ample opportunities to join committees and become as active as you would like. If giving back is important to you then by being a committee member or chairperson you will have a voice in planning activities and even recommending and implementing new activities.

We believe in community action. In the past we led the local Jewish organizations in raising funds for the successful purchase of a fully equipped ambulance in Israel. Currently we are raising funds for an ambucycle in Israel. Our Project Never Again focuses on the topics of anti-Semitism, hatred of the LGBTQ community, genocide and discrimination in America.

Our motto is “small enough to know you and large enough to serve you.” This truly defines who we are.

So please feel free to join us at services or attend one of our many events that are open to the public to see how MHJC might fit into your future.

If you have any questions that you would like to discuss with me, or for a tour of our building, please contact the synagogue office at 516-935-5454.

Thank you for checking out our website and for your interest!
