Move To Merrick

Merrick is a growing and vibrant community located on the South Shore of Nassau County. Merrick is unique in its ability to maintain a "small community feel" whereby members of both Shuls have the ability to directly influence the direction of the community and participate in our religious environment.

Merrick is a unique and beauitful community with a variety of conveniences including:

  • Two Orthodox Shuls

  • A wide variety of housing in terms of size and costs

  • Daily Minyanim and Shiurim

  • 42 minute train to Manhattan and Brooklyn

  • A variety of Kosher food in town and nearby

  • Other Jewish oriented establishments including a Judaica store

  • Local Jewish Pre-School

  • Close proximity to HANC, HAFTR, HALB, South Shore, and other educational institutions

  • Large Eruv

  • A brand new, state of the art Mikvah.

  • Close proximity to the Meadowbrook Pkwy, Souther State and other major highways.

  • Gorgeous parks, great shopping and fun things to do in the area 

  • Ten Minutes from the beach and boardwalk

We are excited to announce that we will be having a Move-to-Merrick Shabbaton on May 1-2, 2020. To register, click here.

The Shabbaton will include Davening and programming at both Young Israel of Merrick and at Congregation Ohav Shalom. Come meet our Rabbis, Rabbi Dov Winston and Rabbi Ira Ebbin, meet the community members and enjoy a beautiful Shabbat here and see what all the fuss is about! 

Can't make it that Shabbat but would still like to plan a visit? Email us at to set up your visit. 


Due to the COVID-19 Pandemic, the Move to Merrick Shabbaton has been temporarily postponed. 

Welcome to Young Israel of Merrick!

At Young Israel of Merrick, you’re family the minute you walk through our doors. Our shul is a vibrant and welcoming environment; the kind of place where you can come in and make a difference right away. Said simply, we are an in-town shul, with an out-of-town feel. Through our diverse educational and social programming, we aim to foster the spiritual and religious growth of each of our members. Located in the beautiful suburban town of Merrick, Long Island, we are very close to major highways and just a short, direct, train ride away from Manhattan. With our young and dynamic Rabbi and Rebbetzin, a beautiful mikvah, a well-maintained eruv, a plethora of kosher options in town and nearby and many schools just a short drive away, Young Israel of Merrick is the perfect place to raise your family.
