Young Israel of North Bellmore




  • The Eruv has been checked and is up for Shabbos Parshas Toldos (12/2/2016)

  • At Ma’ariv on Sunday night, December 4, we start saying v’ten tal umatar in shmoneh esrai instead of v’ten bracha.

  • There will be a blood drive this Sunday at Temple Beth El - 1373 Bellmore Road – from 8:45AM - 1:15PM.  Please take the time to donate and save up to three lives.  What an easy and powerful mitzvah!

  • If you have names of ailing people you regularly include in the mi shebeirach list, please send them to the rabbi in advance so he can add them to the shul list.

  • Shoshana Orenstein will be running in a marathon this March to benefit the Shalva organization. Check out the web page describing the cause.

  • As his Mitzvah Project for his upcoming Bar Mitzvah, Sam Leonard will be collecting toys and games for the children hospitalized in Cohen Children's Hospital.  Having been there himself, he understands what a child feels and sincerely wants to give them a gift of happiness.  He would greatly appreciate any help from the community.  Please contact Melissa Leonard at 516-557-9896  if you would like to donate and she will gladly pick up the item from your home.  You would not just be helping Sam to complete his good deed, you would be doing a mitzvah as well by helping children who are ill.  Please donate by December 7 so all the gifts can be delivered before his bar mitzvah celebration.

In 1966, several local families joined together to fulfill their dream of having an Orthodox Shul in North Bellmore. With high hopes for the future, they formed the Young Israel of North Bellmore with Dr. Harold Nierenberg Z”L as president, and they dedicated our current building within a year.

Here we are 50 years later and the Young Israel of North Bellmore is still active and strong and proud. We are very happy to have recently welcomed our new esteemed leader, Rabbi Chaim Bogopulsky, his lovely wife Batya, and their three daughters. He is only our third Rabbi in 50 years. Our amazing alumni and children represent us and excel as accomplished professionals in their fields and strong leaders in their congregations all over the world. We are so proud of their successes
