Temple Beth-El of City Island is proud to announce the smicha (ordination) of our very own Rabbi David Evan Markus in the lineage of Rabbi Zalman Schachter-Shalomi, Rabbi Shohama Wiener and the Vaad (Academic Leadership) of ALEPH, the Alliance for Jewish Renewal.
Welcome to Temple Beth-El of City Island, Your Shul by the Sea. We are a loving and inclusive community that emphasizes joyful Judaism and nurtures the spiritual heights and depths of Jewish tradition. Our members and friends hail from across the New York metropolitan area, and describe us as haimish (warm) and real, without pretense. Come as you are, bring your entire self, and know that you will be embraced exactly as you are.
