• On Friday evening, December 14th, North Shore Synagogue will be hosting a special evening honoring our new families who recently joined our congregation. This is a perfect opportunity for our new families to meet each other and make new friends.

    The evening starts with dinner at 6:00pm followed by a musical Shabbat Service at 7:30pm. Our new families will receive a special blessing and will be presented with a gift from the congregation. Following services, we will enjoy a festive Oneg. We hope that our congregational community will join us for this joyous Shabbat service to make new friends and welcome everyone into our North Shore Synagogue Family.

North Shore Synagogue Welcomes You

North 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.
