Babylon Jewsih Center Header

In 1997, members of the Iraqi Jewish community established a second congregation in Great Neck, New York, under the name of Babylonian Jewish Center. Its aim is to create an environment to preserve, promote and continue the culture, tradition and heritage of the Babylonian Jews through religious, social and educational means.

The new congregation has been active in organizing social gatherings and preliminary Hebrew classes, as well as making preparations for the first official services at the synagogue expected to take place during the 1998 High Holidays.
