Welcome to the Young Israel of West Hempstead.
We are an Orthodox synagogue located in the heart of Long Island that has provided minyanim, shiurim
and programming in the area for over 50 years. Now, almost seven hundred families strong,
we are one of the most vibrant and fastest growing Orthodox synagogues in the country. Our success can be attributed to many factors, not least among them the dedication of our membership.
Please look through our website for a taste of what our shul has to offer.
We regret to announce the passing of Jerome Alter, A"H, father of our member Stuart Alter.
