granola2Feeding Our Neighbors Food Drive!

The NSS Tikkun Olam Committee in partnership with the Tikkun Alliance of the North Shore will be collecting granola bars through the month of February.  Donations will be going to the Interfaith Nutrition Network (INN) Mary Brennan Soup Kitchen.  There will be bins set up outside the Youth Lounge.  Please give generously to those in need.


ARZAVOTE! We have a tremendous opportunity to influence and impact what happens in Israel and all one needs to do is simply VOTE! The elections for the World Zionist Congress are once again upon us, and we need every single member to be loud and to be counted.

The purpose of the World Zionist Congress is to discuss the burning questions facing the Jewish world and to vote on how to deal with these issues. The math is simple: Electing a large ARZA/Reform Movement delegation to the next World Zionist Congress (WZC) will strengthen Reform Judaism's call for the values and ideals we cherish – like equality, egalitarianism and peace – and will grant the Reform movement greater influence to shape what it means to be Jewish in the Jewish State.

For more information and to vote go to www.reformjews4israel.org


Calling all parents with students away at school: show your student some extra love by sending them a care package from North Shore Synagogue! Sign-up online at here and we will do the rest! Interested in helping out? Have questions? Contact Emily at ext. 160 or at emily@northshoresynagogue.org

Mitzvah of the Month

Tzedakah of the Month - The Tzedakah of the Month for March is the INN (Interfaith Nutrition Network). The INN was founded in 1983 as a single soup kitchen by a small group of concerned volunteers to feed the hungry people of Long Island. The INN has grown to become the largest private social service agency of its kind. Today, there are a total of 14 soup kitchens including Hempstead, Long Beach, Freeport, Central Islip, as well as Emergency Shelters and a Long-Term Housing Program all operating as part of the INN's network across Long Island. More than 5000 people are fed each week. Anyone who comes to the INN's soup kitchens receive a hot nutritious meal, a warm welcome and access to whatever additional services are available.

Please give generously to the Tzedakah Boxes located in the Synagogue Lobby and outside the Youth Lounge.

NSS Welcomes YouNorth Shore Synagogue is a vibrant Reform congregation of nearly 700 families offering a diversity of spiritual, educational, family, mitzvah and social opportunities for its members and the community.

The mission of North Shore Synagogue is to join with our members in building a community where the practice of Reform Judaism enriches and uplifts our lives with understanding, warmth, friendship and meaning.  Read our complete Mission and Vision Statement here.

Though our members are drawn to our Synagogue for various reasons - spiritual, social, educational and charitable - we seek to forge a common bond of commitment to Jewish heritage, tradition and people even as we affirm the freedom to express these shared values in creative and individualistic ways.

Our hope is that you and your family will find a Jewish home at North Shore, where you can develop the tools of Jewish living, the comfort of a community and a sense of connection that will last a lifetime and for generations to come. We feel strongly that membership in a synagogue, whether North Shore or another synagogue, creates a bond that you'll only find in a congregational community.

We serve communities across Nassau and Suffolk County, including Syosset, Woodbury, Old Bethpage, Plainview, Jericho, Oyster Bay, Muttontown, Brookville, East Norwich, Hicksville, Farmingdale, Melville, Glen Head, Cold Spring Harbor, Laurel Hollow and many others on Long Island.
