Dinner at 6:15 pm, Service at 7:30 pm

The entire congregation is invited to share a delicious Hanukkah Shabbat Family dinner at 6:15 pm, followed at 7:30 pm by a joyous Hanukkah Shabbat Family Service.

This special Hanukkah dinner will (of course!!) feature latkes and soufganiyot. To add to our celebration, we are asking that every family bring their own Hanukkiah (Hanukkah menorah) so that everyone can light - together. We'll supply the candles!

Dinner is $15/adult and $10/student. Please make checks payable to North Shore Synagogue. Click here to RSVP to Sherry Gutes no later than Monday, December 15 at 5:00 pm. Please understand that we may not be able to take late reservations. See you on Shabbat Hanukkah!!

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.
