J.Tel Needs Your Old Phones and Glasses!

J.tel Community Service Projects through December 2016

Get Well Cells:
One BILLION people will never see a doctor in their lives and will never receive essential health services. The solution? We are partnering with Dosomething.org and the not-for-profit Medic Mobile, who can provide these essential services using mobile technology and your donated cell phones. Yes, around 90% of the population in developing nations has access to a cell signal. We will take all your old phones - YES even those flip phones!

Search For Specs:
Many people that are visually impaired live in low-income conditions. Our solution? Donate extra glasses! They'll be recycled and turned into funds for vision treatment programs for communities in need. We are asking for all those glasses lying around from old prescriptions! Let us take them off your hands!

We will be accepting your donations of eyeglasses and cell phones through December 31st. Look for our flyer & drop boxes outside the Religious School office.

Tzedakah of the Month - The December Tzedakah of the Month will be the Make-A-Wish Foundation.

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.

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.
