Our Home

 

Midway Jewish Center has always prided itself as being a closely-knit Jewish community focused on communicating Jewish values from generation to generation. To our members, community has always been much more than physical appearance yet we understand that appearance also needs to tell our story. Today, our beautifully renovated synagogue stands as the culmination of years of planning, design and construction.  From conception in 2003 to completion in May 2012,  hundreds of individuals donated their time and expertise, and the financial support necessary to make this dream a reality.  We have always been proud of the heart and soul of our community and today we stand proud of what our community has accomplished, as we enjoy the fruits of our labor for many years to come.

The Lobby

To those entering our building, our entrance lobby sends an important message of what we value. Our elevator sends a message of the importance of access for all, the design offers a sense of warmth and modernity, and the 12 stained glass windows, formerly displayed in Bethpage Jewish Community Center, embrace the concept of two forward-looking communities joining together as one.

   

Party in Great RoomTHE GREAT HALL

This newly renovated space is perfect for meetings, events and family simchas. It will also be a special place in which we conduct our parallel services on the High Holidays, our Purim carnival and the many programs and events that define the Midway community.

Building Exterior

For anyone driving on South Oyster Bay Road, it's hard not to notice the amazing transformation that has taken place.  The red brick and blue panels from the 1950s have been replaced with a Jerusalem stone-like appearance and the openness of glass.  With the installation of high beam lighting, the building is accentuated as a beautiful sight to see at night as well as during the daytime.

   

NEW KITCHEN FACILITY

Many of the functions that take place at Midway involve eating.  Now with a modern kitchen the task of food preparation has become more efficient and streamlined for a better work flow.  Families have already begun utilizing the new kitchen and the Great Hall  to celebrate Jewish life cycle events.
