Welcome from the Rabbi

Rabbi Neil Schuman

Manetto Hill Jewish Center is your personal synagogue, where you can experience Judaism in a way that’s spiritual and relevant to you.

Want to explore and learn more about your Jewish traditions and roots? Looking for friendship and Jewish community? Looking for a great Hebrew school for your children, with warm and caring teachers and small classroom sizes? Want a Bar or Bat Mitzvah for your child, where he or she will receive private lessons and develop a meaningful relationship with the rabbi?  Then Manetto Hill Jewish Center is the right place for you.

We are a Conservative synagogue that is trying to preserve the best of our beautiful and rich past while being open and embracing of change. We were the first Conservative egalitarian synagogue on Long Island, and we continue to be progressive with joyous musical Shabbat evening services, fun and innovative children’s services and alternative, shorter Shabbat morning services (in addition to the regular service). Manetto Hill Jewish Center believes Judaism needs to engage our mind, body and spirit. We welcome you to become part of our family and enrich your Jewish life with us.
