Hi,

We're looking to move to long island and found a great house in Massapequa Park Village. Wondering if there are any jews around, or if there are any temples.

Please advise and thank you!

I'm not a local resident but I seem to remeber some big Jewish temple or community group down that way, sort of as you go towards the water.

You'll do fine.

In Massapequa there's Temple Sinai, Temple Judea, & Congregation Beth-El. There are yet more temples in the neighboring communities to the west.

Default For those who may not be familiar with Massapequa Park

movingfrombrooklyn, Lawn Guyland, the part of Long Island east of the NYC line is lot different from Brooklyn, and in case you are unfamiliar with the local geography:

What people refer to colloquially as "towns" are actually villages and hamlets, which are within actual towns; and, because villages and hamlets are referred to as "towns", then, many times, the error is compounded when actual towns are referred to as "townships".

Also, many colloquially refer to a "downtown business district" in a hamlet as a "village".

//www.city-data.com/forum/new-y...-glossary.html and //www.city-data.com/forum/long-...-resource.html may be of some help to you in understanding the geography of "Lawn Guyland".

And, you should be aware that Massapequa Park is one of those many village and hamlets on Long Island where many of the places with the community name in their mailing address (2,120 acres) are not in the village (1,398 acres).

//www.city-data.com/forum/long-...you-think.html may help you understand the great geographic confusions caused by non-conforming ZIP Code postal zones.

When you do find a house that you like, you can find out in which community (city, village or CDP) that house is actually located, which is oftentimes different from the community named in that house's mailing address, by using the Census Bureau's online address search function. (CDP or Census Designated Place is the Census Bureau equivalent for a hamlet in Nassau and Suffolk Counties.)

And, very importantly, among other things, the Census Bureau's online address search function also indicates in which school district an address is located.


For those who may not be familiar with Massapequa Park:

Massapequa Park is a village (incorporated in 1931) in the southeast part of the Town of Oyster Bay, in the southeast part of Nassau County.

Beginning on the north and moving in a clockwise direction, the Village of Massapequa Park in the Town of Oyster Bay is bordered on the north by the Hamlet of North Massapequa and the Hamlet of South Farmingdale; on the east by the Hamlet of East Massapequa; on the south by South Oyster Bay and the Hamlet of Massapequa; and, on the west by the Hamlet of Massapequa and the Hamlet of North Massapequa.





Massapequa Park is one of those many village and hamlets on Long Island where many of the places with the community name in their mailing address are not in the village: places that have a "Massapequa Park, NY 11762" mailing address that are not in the Village of Massapequa Park are in the Hamlet of Massapequa, the Hamlet of North Massapequa and the Hamlet of East Massapequa.


For a good set of town-by-town maps showing all the villages and hamlets in each of LI's 13 towns (3 in Nassau County and 10 in Suffolk County): //www.city-data.com/forum/long-...-resource.html

Given how the OP phrased his query and what others had already posted, the OP's question about "Jews in Massapequa Park", was fairly well answered.

Now, if you really wanted to be helpful on that issue, do you know the approximate percent of the Jews living in the greater Massapequa area (includes the Hamlet of Massapequa, the Hamlet of North Massapequa, the Village of Masapequa Park and the Hamlet of East Massapequa) that are Orthodox, Conservative, Reconstructionist, Reform or unaffiliated?


Now, for the "why" I posted the geographic information, it is highly likely that the OP, coming from outside the area, would not be familiar with the fact that a place can have a "Massapequa Park, NY 11762" mailing address and not be in the Village of Massapequa Park and there is a difference between having a "Massapequa Park, NY 11762" mailing address and actually being in the Village of Massapequa Park.

Temple Sinai is a Reform congregation, located at 270 Clocks Boulevard in East Massapequa ("Massapequa, NY 11758" mailing address).

Temple B'nai Torah (http://www.temple-bnai-torah.org/Temple_B_nai_Torah_Home.html - broken link), Temple Judea, now known as Temple B'nai Torah, is a Reform congregation, located at 2900 Jerusalem Avenue in Wantagh.

Congregation Beth-El is an egalitarian Conservative congregation, located at 99 Jerusalem Avenue in North Massapequa ("Massapequa, NY 11758" mailing address).

In brooklyn we have Mill Basin and Manhattan Mod cut: language.
In Queens we have "the gardens"

Asking which is the most upscale place in Massapequa is akin to asking which is the most upscale place in Mill Basin, Manhattan Beach, Forest Hills Gardens or Riverdale.

Massapequa is a hamlet in the Town of Oyster Bay, and, in my opinion, the most upscale place in the Town of Oyster Bay is the Village of Lattingtown.

There are two other towns in Nassau County: North Hempstead and Hempstead, and the most upscale place in North Hempstead is the Village of Sands Point and the most upscale place in the Town of Hempstead is (and, there will be lots of discussion about this choice) the Village of Hewlett Harbor.
