Services and classes in a warm, family environment. Be a part of it!
Our Synagogue
At Chabad of Long Island City the services are traditional, and are conducted in a joyous, casual atmosphere. Many of those who attend cannot read Hebrew, yet everyone feels at home. The prayer book is bi-lingual and various English readings are included in the service. Song and commentary add meaning and participation to the prayers. Children are included and most welcome.
Covid Guidelines:

Given the changes in guidelines set forth from state and local governments, we feel that it is time to relax certain measures we have taken for the past year, while still taking the general safety of our congregation into account. 

Below, please find the new guidlines for our shul that we will enact and observe going forward:

  • Ultimately, if you do not feel well, please do not come to shul.
  • Face masks will no longer be required for anyone that is fully vaccinated.  This includes; that you have received all required doses of your respective vaccine, and you are 14 days clear of the last required shot
  • Physical contact will no longer be restricted, but please be mindful that some might still wish to not have physical contact out of caution.
  • We will no longer require you to sign up to attend a service.
  • We will once again return to the practice of bringing the Torah around the shul, please be mindful not to crowd around, so that proper social distancing can be maintained.  It will be brought to your seat for you.
  • If accepting an honor to the Torah, you can come to the Bima for your aliyot, we still ask that afterwards, instead of standing by the Bima for the following Aliyot, we still ask that you sit down.
  • Gradually, we will begin have indoor kiddushes after services.  Please try to maintain social distancing as best you can, and be mindful when handling food and beverages.
  • We will still be trying our best to maintain social distancing while in the shul, so the use of tables as we have in the past will still be put on hold.  With that being said, if there is someone that you would like to sit with, and you are both comfortable being next to each other, you both are now permitted to do so. 

As things progress, we will gradually start bringing the shul back to normal operations. As always, we have been very appreciative of your support and cooperation during this very trying year. While normalcy is the ultimate goal, we will be constantly monitoring our current situation, and will take the necessary actions that we feel are needed to keep our community safe.

Kiddush Luncheon
An important part of our community is the weekly Kiddush Luncheon that follows the Shabbat morning services, where friendships are created and nurtured and we celebrate each other's happy occasions and anniversaries.
