We welcome the members of the Baldwin Jewish Center to your new home. May the memories of your past sustain you in our future.

Bellcrest Kosher Deli

Anyone interested in taking advantage of the discounted dinner at the Bellcrest Kosher Deli on the night of  August 14, 2014 (Brokerage Comedy Club night) please call the office with the total number of people who will be attending.  We need a count by the first week of August. 


A start-up trove of historical material about SBJC has been donated to the library of the Jewish Theological Seminary.  The JTS Librarian described this material as "the story of a vibrant Jewish community on Long Island and a synagogue rich in educational programming and activities; these papers bear witness to the shifting demographics of the Jewish community on Long Island."

Work on the Archive will begin about Oct. 1, 2014.  The material will be organized; an inventory, description and 'finding aid' will be created and made available on the Seminary's website.

Donations of any SBJC memorabilia is welcome to allow a more complete picture of our history for future users and historians.   As of now, no other Long Island synagogue has developed this historical record.

Search your "stuff" and send material, photos, programs, pictures, etc. related to SBJC to the office (with your name and address,please) and we will forward it to the Seminary for processing.

Weekly Announcements

The Sisterhood Rosh Chodesh Study Group will be meeting this Sunday morning, July 27th, after the morning minyan, in the SBJC Library.  We continue to study about the Prophets.  As always, a light breakfast will be available.  Newcomers are always welcome.  You are encouraged to attend the minyan at 9:30.

There will be a ‘New York Stands With Israel’ rally at Dag Hammarskjold Plaza on Monday, July 28th  at 12:30 PM. Help negate the worldwide ‘hate Israel’ demonstrations being held around the world and in US cities as well with a strong show of support.

We thank you for your replies to our requests for dry cleaners to clean our tallitot, our prayer shawls.  We are grateful for your efforts.  We still have shawls that need cleaning.  If you haven't yet approached your cleaner, it would be appreciated if you would ask the cleaner you patronize if they would take some.  We will acknowledge their service in our Centerpost.  Please call the SBJC Office, 223-8688, with responses.

You may have noticed that many stores including Walgreens and Staples are now running school supplies sales. This is a great time to grab a bargain and contribute to our “Supplies For Success” campaign. Fill up a few bags and drop them in our collection bin at the rear entrance of the Temple building.

We have now arranged with the Bellcrest Kosher Deli for a bargain dinner price on the night of the Brokerage comedy fundraiser. A sandwich, beverage and sides is only $10. So plan to make it a complete night out with dinner and comedy on Thursday evening, August 14th at 8:00 pm and have a few of your friends to join you.

The Book Club has selected:  The House at Tyneford by Natasha Solomons for the next discussion.  The meeting will take place on Wednesday evening, September 10th, at 7:30, in the SBJC Library.

Folk dancing Wednesday mornings from 10:30 – 12:00 noon at the Temple. Josh’s class meets on Tuesday mornings at 9:30 am and Mah Jong meets on Thursday evenings at 6:45. Newcomers to any of these sessions are always welcome.


Congratulations to Dale and Jerry Stein on the forthcoming marriage of their son Michael to Jenna Boyd, daughter of Marilyn & Skip Visakay.
