Our History Congregation Beth Emeth, established in 1994, is the only Reconstructionist Synagogue on the South Shore of Long Island. Our eclectic, friendly, and caring congregation welcomes members of all ages, regardless of marital status - single, married, widowed or divorced. In our congregational family members participate according to their own needs, whether it is for worship, education, socializing or friendship. Each experiences that special sense of community that is found in a Reconstructionist synagogue. We see our synagogue community center as a place to realize an enrichment and fulfillment of Jewish living, a place to find warmth, inspiration, and camaraderie, a place to live our heritage, a place of deep involvement, participation, and commitment, a place of extensive study and learning, a place of prayer, a place of emotional, spiritual, and intellectual stimulation, a place of unusual and intense musical expression, a place of humanity and community. It is a place where Judaism and you have the opportunity to intertwine in so many and varied ways. These include Israel, art, education, sports, study, music, social awareness and action, entertainment, health and fitness, Shabbat and holidays, travel, and more. It is a place from which to carry all this into our daily lives. We are committed to understanding and bringing to life our magnificent, dynamic, age-old and ever growing heritage, and to ensuring its ongoing exciting and meaningful contemporary expressions.
