Hewlett-East Rockaway Jewish Centre


Hewlett-East Rockaway Jewish Centre/Congregation Etz Chaim (HERJC) is a warm, vibrant, traditional-egalitarian Conservative congregation. Our diverse, forward-thinking community is one in which learning, prayer and social action flourish.


Since its founding in 1949, HERJC has been recognized for creating a welcoming environment in which each member—regardless of age, stage of life or background—feels a connection to one another, to the Jewish people, to the United States, to the land and state of Israel, to Judaism and to God.

We are committed to continuing to provide innovative, interesting, and thought-provoking programs that:

  • Foster lifelong learning from pre-school through adulthood

  • Celebrate our Jewish heritage

  • Deepen the sense of community among our Congregational family

  • Promote religious involvement of all members, and enhance their spiritual experience

  • Encourage intergenerational cooperation

  • Nurture the state of Israel and our relationship with it

  • Serve the needs of our members, the local community, the United States and K’lal Yisrael, the Jewish people throughout the world.

The Pirkei Avot says the world rests on Torah, Avoda, and G’milut Chasidim. So too does our Congregation.
