About Us

For close to three decades, Magen Israel Center has been dedicated to providing a rich and meaningful education for the Iranian Jewish community of greater New York. Under the guidance of Rabbi and Mrs. Yitzchok Chayempour, thousands of Jewish children have received a deeper spiritual connection to their roots.

In 1990, with the blessing of the Lubavitcher Rebbe, the Magen Israel Summer Program for Persian children was established. Since its inception, the center has grown to include a preschool, Hebrew school, and synagogue, as well as many other programs. 

“Every child deserves a positive and meaningful Jewish education.” It is this ethos that drives our efforts to ensure that every Jewish child experiences Judaism in a warm and positive environment.

With the objective of educating their students in the ways of the Torah, Rabbi Chayempour and Morah Tammy have since become integral and authoritative voices for the furtherance of advancing Jewish education in Great Neck.

As pioneers of youth education, much of the fruits of their labors can be seen within the rapid developments that have begun to sprout within the growing Jewish Community of Great Neck.
