Welcome to the website of the Merrick-Bellmore Jewish Community Council.  We represent the Jewish community in the hamlets of Merrick and Bellmore, Long Island — two neighboring communities along the south shore of Nassau County.

The four main objectives of our organization are: (1) to promote the Merrick-Bellmore Jewish community; (2) to encourage a deeper  appreciation of and connection to our Jewish heritage and culture; (3) to combat all forms of anti-Semitism and to protect and preserve the Jewish community; and (4) to support the State of Israel.

Our organization serves to unite the broader Jewish community on Long Island’s South Shore.  Whether or not you belong to a congregation, and regardless of whether you are Reform, Conservative, Orthodox, or unaffiliated, we are your voice.
