Jewish Community Center

Opening Doors to Spirituality, Social Consciousness, and Community A Friendly Egalitarian Conservative Congregation



Marathon Jewish Community Center is located on the Little Neck/Douglaston border. The area is made up of primarily single-family homes and garden cooperative apartments.  It is convenient to transportation with express buses and the Long Island Railroad making it a short trip into the City. We are situated in former School District 26, which is known as one of the highest performing in the City. Both the elementary and middle schools are located within walking distance to the temple. Many stores and restaurants are also within walking distance including a kosher butcher and two major supermarkets. We welcome you to take a walk through our community and enjoy all it has to offer.



The Congregation of Marathon Jewish Community Center strives to maintain a synagogue that is the spiritual home of all its members. We are dedicated to meeting the religious, educational and social needs of the community while furthering the causes and objectives of Conservative Judaism as interpreted by the synagogue's Rabbi.  We are also committed to the welfare of our members and to improving the community in which we live.
