Marathon Concert to Help Raise Money to Keep Doors Open at Mastic Beach Hebrew Center

Press Releases

Effort spearheaded by a 20-year-old Temple member and her friends.

Mastic Beach, NY - August 18, 2014 - The Mastic Beach Hebrew Center is in danger of closing its doors, but not if young Sarah Reich has her way.  
 
The 20-year-old college student, who had every major religious life cycle event at the temple – from her Baby Naming to her Bat Mitzvah – is fighting to keep the 75-year-old institution alive.  She and her friends are organizing a marathon benefit concert to be held on Sunday, August 24, 2014 from 12:00pm to 10:00pm at Vine & Hops, 127 East Main Street, Riverhead.
 
Miss Reich’s goal is to not only raise much-needed cash so the temple can pay its bills, but to also raise awareness for the plight of the temple and hopefully attract new members and donors. 
 
Founded in 1937, the Mastic Beach Hebrew Center is a liberal Reform congregation of inclusion, welcoming both Jewish and interfaith families who seek a relaxed, spiritual experience.  Like many houses of worship of all faiths, Mastic Beach Hebrew Center is suffering from an increase in assimilation and a decrease in affiliation.
 
The marathon concert will feature more than a loads of local Long Island talent including Breaking Dawn and Robert Bruey.  A complete list of artists who have agreed to donate their time and talents, raffle prizes, and ticket information, can be found on the temple’s website at MBHebrew.com.  
 
What: Marathon concert to raise money for Mastic Beach Hebrew Center.
When: This Sunday, August 24, 2014, 12:00pm – 10:00pm
Where: Vine & Hops, 127 East Main Street, Riverhead (Google Map)
