Basic Information
Description
Congregation Ohav Sholom of Merrick, New York is a vibrant, innovative, and growing modern Orthodox synagogue. The Synagogue was founded in 1962. Under the spiritual guidance of our rabbi, Jeremiah Wohlberg, we are open to Jews of all backgrounds. Our shul emphasizes ritual, education, youth, chesed, Jewish culture, and involvement.We have daily minyanim mornings and evenings. We encourage participation by our members, as we do not have a regular chazzan. Members are asked to lead services; daven shachrais, musaf, lain, chant the Haftorah, daven mincha and maariv. A beginner's minyan is held periodically to enable individuals to become more comfortable in an Orthodox worship service. A beginner's Hebrew reading class for adults is also available. Recently, we have started a very popular women's teffilah group which is under the guidance of the rabbi and remains within strict halachic confines.Our youth are offered each Shabbos a regular junior congregation with an experienced youth leader. The younger children are offered appropriate supervision with qualified Hebrew teachers or nursery care. The youth leader also offers many activities during the year on weeknights and Sundays.Orthodoxy is alive in Merrick. Our community is thriving. We have several kosher establishiments: a butcher with take out foods, a bagel store with eat in, take out and catering and a new restaurant with an Israeli flair that server a full complement of meat entrees. Merrick is also host to one other orthodox synagogue, two conservative synagogues, and a reform synagogue. Our "sister" community of Bellmore has an orthodox shul, two conservative shuls, and a reform temple. Now when people mention yiddishkeit on Long Island, Merrick is on the map along with West Hempstead, Plainview, Great Neck, or Five Towns.Please come visit us -- we will gladly arrange Shabbos hospitality.
