How to Get Here

2959 Grand Avenue
Baldwin, NY 11510


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

Each year, the sisterhood  offers you the opportunity to purchase from an extensive list, kosher wines for Passover and the entire year at excellent prices.  In order to get the wine to you for Passover use, it must be on our premises in time for your use at your seders.  We therefore must have your orders in hand by this Friday, March 27.

Thank you.

We have just learned  that the Rabbinical Assembly, the Rabbinic arm of the Conservative movement,  has issued a revised and comprehensive booklet entitled, Pesach Guide 5775. The thirteen page document  explains in detail the laws and customs regarding the dietary restrictions of Passover. Some of the topics covered are Kashering The Kitchen, prohibited and permitted foods and which items require kashrut certification and which do not.

The guide is available on the organization's website, and may be viewed or downloaded.  If you cannot do this and wish to get a copy,  call the office and we will provide a copy for you.

SBJC Office

We have secured several copies of the Daytime Book Club selection,
by Jillian Cantor. 
Please come into the office if you wish to borrow  a copy to read.

The discussion date will be announced soon.
