​​​​​​​​SHIURIM & LECTURES

We are proud to feature a full range of Shiurim (including Daf Yomi) & Lectures given by Renowned Speakers and first rate Magidei Shiurim throughout Shabos and Yom Tov, including a two track all night program of both shiurim and talks on Shavuos night. (There are both early and later minyanim for Shacharis.) The Directors and Rabbonim of the Jewish Heritage Center, Rabbi Naftali Portnoy and Rabbi Moshe Turk, both popular speakers among secular and learned audiences throughout the United States, Canada and Eretz Yisrael spearhead this talented staff of dynamic, insightful and inspiring presenters.

Rabbi Naftali Portnoy  has served as the Co-Director of, and Senior Lecturer at, the Jewish Heritage Center of Queens and Long Island, an internationally renowned Kiruv Center, since 1988. Together with Co-Director Rabbi Moshe Turk, he developed this respected organization, which since 1987 has reached out to more than 20,000 Jewish Adults throughout the Metropolitan New York area. More than 2,000 of their students have become fully Shomer Torah u’Mitzvos and over 8,000 have made significant strides towards deepening their commitment to Torah Judaism.  Rabbi Portnoy has a deep grasp of psak halacha and has conferred extensively with g’dolei poskin both in America and Eretz Yisrael on varied and delicate matters of halacha as they apply to baalei teshuva.

DAY CARE / DAY CAMP

 

In previous years the Preschool Program and Day Camp were under the experienced direction of Mrs. Miri Sklar and Mrs. Lorey Friedman, who have been providing years of exciting, creative and professionally run programs and activities for younger children. An abundance of indoor and outdoor space, together with our warm and very dedicated staff guarantee our children the time of their lives so their parents can get more out of their davening and shiurim on Yom Tov. ​
