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.

Scholar In Residence

Dr Joel M Hoffman
As part of our ongoing investment in outstanding Jewish education, North Shore Synagogue is pleased to announce the partnering with Dr. Joel M. Hoffman, a renowned scholar and educator. Rabbi Shalhevet and her senior staff eagerly anticipate the unlimited new possibilities, while working in conjunction with Dr. Hoffman. We look forward to the exciting and innovative programming that Dr. Hoffman will bring to the current K-12th grade family days beginning December 19th.

As a pioneer of modern Jewish education, Dr. Hoffman has served on the faculties of HUC-JIR's school of education and of Brandeis University. In 2008, he chaired the largest gathering of Jewish educators in the world, and he continues to lecture across North America and overseas.

We welcome Dr. Hoffman into our North Shore family and feel
very fortunate to have him become a part of our Religious School department.

Mitzvah of the Month

Tzedakah of the Month - In conjunction with this Mitzvah, the Tzedakah of the Month for February and March will be 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 be the largest private social service agency of its kind. Today there are a total of 14 soup kitchens in many locations across Long Island. The Inn also provides Emergency Shelters, a Long Term Housing Program, a Veterans Housing Program and support services. Anyone who comes to the INN's soup kitchen receives a hot nutritious meal, a warm welcome and access to additional services that are needed.

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

Peanut Butter and Jelly Mitzvah

In March the Tikkun Olam Committee will be sponsoring the making of 500 peanut butter and jelly sandwiches at a church in Plainview on Wednesday March 16th, 7:00-8:00pm. The sandwiches will be donated to the INN (Interfaith Nutrition Network) and are for the purpose of a "take home meal" after a hot meal is provided to those in need.

RSVP is a must to Patrice Grossman by phone at 516-238-2982 or by email to patmg53@hotmail.com. Details will be given at the time of response.

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.
