Membership Information

Welcome to the Melville Jewish Center!

The best way to get a feel for how we do things at the Melville JC is to come and take a look for yourself! We encourage you to visit and see our services and our school in action, learn about our community, and meet our Clergy, leadership and members.

We offer numerous opportunities for connections to Jewish life

  • Our Early Childhood Program is regarded as one of the strongest on Long Island, offering outstanding education for our youngest congregants by introducing them to the Jewish holidays and traditions in a safe and nurturing environment where the children’s physical, social, emotional, cognitive, and spiritual needs are met. We have two age appropriate outdoor playgrounds as well as an indoor gym and library.  We also offer a summer program to keep the kids stimulated and having fun all year long!
  • Our Religious School has been repeatedly recognized for its innovative and out-of-the-classroom teaching techniques that benefit our students. We offer concentrations in prayer, language, history, culture, and values in a fun and engaging environment.
  • We have Youth Group clubs for all ages.
  • Minyan is held Sunday through Thursday, with services on Friday evenings, Saturday mornings, and holidays.  Zoom is always available.
  • We have a strong Bar and Bat Mitzvah program of study for both our youth and for our adult congregants.
  • For our active congregants ages 60 and up, we have partnered with the Huntington Jewish Center to create a social group known as The Village. Activities range from movie dates, to museum visits, to walks and other events which provide connections and stimulation.
  • Opportunities for individual, family and community involvement abound with our Sisterhood, Men’s Club, Book Club, Social Events, Family Events, Golf Outing, Tot Shabbat, Shabbat Under the Stars, Summer of Ahava (our musical and casual summer services) and so much more.

Join our dedicated and loyal congregation, and make the Melville JC become ‘My Jewish Community’. We are certain you will be enriched by the opportunities for study, celebration, leadership, and support while building Jewish family values and promoting a unique appreciation of your Jewish heritage.

Our very popular Refer A Friend promotion is back! All you have to do is refer a friend or family member to Melville JC, and you receive a $200 dues credit after that friend or family member has been a member for one year. It’s that simple. Just have them mention your name when they sign up!
