Men's Club

Men’s Club The Men's Club of the Dix Hills Jewish Center provides an opportunity for men of all ages within our synagogue to experience the bond of brotherhood and participate in activities dedicated to enriching our synagogue family. The Men's Club provides an opportunity to expand our circle of friends with others to provide a support network for each other. The Men's Club is an "arm" of the temple, which enables us to fulfill our interest and willingness to serve our synagogue family by volunteering available time and effort to help the DHJC in whatever way we can.

Many current and future leaders of the synagogue are trained and groomed through Men’s Club programs and activities. The members of the Men’s Club participate in, and contribute to the daily minyan; we are gabbais, helpers, and ushers for services, support our members during times of Shiva; and advisors for how to put on Tefillin for the Hebrew School.  We remain a diverse group with a strong sense of commitment. We continually look forward to having new members join and participate. Interaction between new and older members contributes to making what we do all the more fulfilling.  Therefore, we welcome all male temple members to join us and help us fulfill our goal of service to the Dix Hills Jewish Center.

Toys to Jerusalem

Our tradition Continues!
Bring a Smile to the Face of a Child in Jerusalem for Hanukkah!

Welcome to the Dix Hills Jewish Center

Welcome to the Dix Hills Jewish Center, a Conservative Congregation, celebrating 50 years as a beacon of dynamic Judaism in Dix Hills. We are a traditional egalitarian synagogue committed to the reality that all Jews are full partners in the beauty of Jewish life and that all Jews are given an equal role in all rituals. The Dix Hills Jewish Center is an engaging, vibrant congregation. We are excited about the growth in our synagogue, and the wonderful growth of the Jewish community of Dix Hills, Commack and the neighboring communities. We are a community committed to learning, to supporting each other, and to being a warm and welcoming place for all who participate. Welcome to the Dix Hills Jewish Center.

Service & Minyan times located at the bottom of the page.

If you are interested in attending any of our programs please check the Calendar in Upcoming Events. Children's programming is also available.


In Case Of........

Simchas

For joyous occassions in your life, please share your naches with the Rabbi. Inform the Rabbi about births, engagements, weddings and other noteworthy moments in the life of your family. The Rabbi will arrange for baby namings, provide information regarding a mohel ( for infant boys), coordinate a pidyon ha-ben (the redemption ceremony for firstborn males), schedule an aufruf (to celebrate a forthcoming marriage), weddings and bring the richness of Jewish traditions and mitzvoth into your simcha(email rabbi or call 631-499-6644).

Illness

In case of illness and/or hospitalization, please notify the Rabbi at 631-499-6644 (24/6 - on Shabbat, see below for further emergency instructions)

Death

Even before making funeral arrangements notify Rabbi Buechler at the synagogue office at 631-499-6644 (after office hours press #3 for the emergency numbers). Rabbi Buechler will assist and guide you in making the appropriate arrangements for the funeral. In the event that you cannot reach the Rabbi, contact the Jewish funeral home and begin to make your arrangements. PLEASE, if Rabbi Buechler is going to officiate at the funeral, do not finalize the funeral time until the Rabbi has contacted you. At most this will be a few hours. In the event that Rabbi Buechler is on vacation, Cantor Hevenstone is available and other local Conservative Rabbis are on call. Their names can be obtained by calling the synagogue office, an officer of the synagogue or the Ritual Chairman. It is also appropriate to contact Rabbi Buechler whenever tragedy or trauma occurs. On Shabbat and Yomtov the Rabbi does not use the telephone. Therefore, you can convey information to him on these days at the synagogue during scheduled service times, by calling him immediately after Shabbat or Yomtov or by going to his residence.
