Joining Senior Rabbi Jaimee Shalhevet, we're thrilled to have Cantor Kyle Cotler and Associate Rabbi Rachel Maimin become part of North Shore Synagogue's clergy team!  Follow the links to read their impressive bios - and join us on Friday, July 8 at 6:15 pm for a Meet & Greet at the Brotherhood BBQ, followed by Erev Shabbat services at 7:30pm.

As many of our Nursery School parents already know, Elizabeth Kessler brings her experience and energy as our new Nursery School Director, replacing Barbara Flack following her retirement after summer camp this year.   Our own Jacquelynn Golub, who grew up at NSS, assumes the role of Religious School Director. Jacquelynn, who has tutored dozens of our Bar and Bat Mitzvah students, brings her extensive teaching experience and training to take our creative religious school experience to the next level.  Elizabeth and Jacquelynn have already been meeting with parents, and look forward to meeting more at the July 8th Meet & Greet!

Heifer Gift Ark - We Did It!

HeiferArkSuccessA Message from Rabbi Shalhevet:

Kol Hakavod to The North Shore Synagogue family! The Jewish philosopher, Maimonides taught that the highest form of Tzedaka is to help someone become self sufficient. It's not easy, but we have done it!  It is my pleasure to announce that in only four short months we have managed to raise over $5,000 to donate to our Heifer International Gift Ark Project.

We have successfully reached and even surpassed our goal! Thank you to each and every one of you who joined me in this effort, our Gift Ark donation is now a communal gift that will be making a difference in the lives of an entire town. I am incredibly touched by the generosity of our congregation, proud of what we have accomplished together, and inspired by your willingness to join me on a journey to continue to do good for the world around us.


Please join me in turning our donations inward to our Synagogue as we ask you to look through a list of Synagogue Funds that all need your support. Stay tuned for our next worldwide project!

Heifer International's mission is to work with communities to end world hunger and poverty and to care for the Earth. A Gift Ark donation includes two water buffalos, two cows, two sheep and two goats, along with bees, chicks, rabbits and more.

Mitzvah of the Month

Tzedakah of the Month  - The May Tzedakah of the Month will be the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation. Cystic Fibrosis is a life threatening
disease that primarily affects the lungs and digestive system. An estimated 30,000 children and adults in the United States and 70,000 worldwide have Cystic Fibrosis. Please give generously to this worthwhile charity. The Tzedakah Boxes are located in the Synagogue Lobby and outside the Youth Lounge.

On Sunday, May 22nd the North Shore Synagogue Walk-A-Maniacs invite you to join us as we take Great Strides in the Walk to Cure Cystic Fibrosis. Walk with us or if you can't attend please consider sponsoring our team.

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.
