Mitzvah of the Month

Tzedakah of the Month - The February Tzedakah of the Month is Ronald McDonald House of Long Island. Ronald McDonald House provides a place for families to stay and call home at little or no cost so they can be close by to their seriously ill or injured hospitalized child. By staying at Ronald McDonald House parents can better communicate with their child's medical team and solely focus on the health of their child. Please give generously to the Tzedakah boxes located in the synagogue lobby and outside the youth lounge.

PACK IT UP FOR HATZILU

Hatzilu provides food, provisions, financial aid, social work assistance and emotional support to Jews in need in Nassau County. It is located in Baldwin, Long Island. This winter in conjunction with TANS (Tikkun Alliance of the North Shore- composed of 14 other synagogues), we will be collecting Boxes of Tissues (our goal is 100 boxes!) to help fill their pantry. Each of the other synagogues will be collecting other paper products and household items and together we will "Pack it up for Hatzilu." There will be an event on Sunday, March 4th at the Sid Jacobson Jewish Community Center located in Roslyn from 10:30am to 12:00pm where we will need volunteers to help assemble packages to be delivered to Hatzilu. Details of this event will be in the February Shalom.

** Please when you are in the food or drug store, pick up an extra box or two of tissues and bring them to the bins which will be located outside the Youth Lounge **



We thank you again for your efforts and support,
Patrice Grossman & Ilene Zelniker

Junior Choir

Each month, North Shore Synagogue holds a special family service, designed for Kindergarten to 6th graders, but accessible and open for all ages.  The Junior Choir leads the congregation in song. 

Families are, of course, welcome at all services and may especially enjoy our Shabbat Alive musical service.

Family Shabbat is held the second Friday night at 7:30pm of most months from September to May.  Family Shabbat is for all congregants on those Fridays. We frequently hold Shabbat dinners prior to Family Shabbat services. Check the calendar to confirm.

North Shore Synagogue believes that worship provides a powerful way to get closer to God, our community and ourselves. A core part of our Vision as a synagogue is that we "envision a congregation where our members find a sanctuary from the stress of the outside world; a place to recharge our emotional and spiritual selves through community, music, meditation, study and prayer."

We recognize that finding spirituality in worship is a very personal thing. Therefore, we offer a range of different service styles to satisfy a variety of tastes. Whether you prefer a traditional classical Reform service with moving cantorial music or a more contemporary style where you can tap your feet and clap your hands, we've got it. We hope you'll try out a range of services, and we hope you'll enjoy them all!

We encourage you to make a commitment to yourself to worship with our community on a regular basis – whether that's every week, every month or just once in a while. We know that the more you come, the more you'll want to come back.

Friday night Erev Shabbat services are held at 7:30 pm every week. Tot Shabbat services are held on the third Friday of each month at 5:30 pm.  (Check the calendar for occasional changes.) 

Traditions

Kaddish

We read the names of recently departed congregants and congregants' family members. If you attend services to observe a yahrzeit, you will have an opportunity to stand and speak your loved one's name before we recite kaddish as a congregation. If you are unable to attend and would like a name read aloud, please contact the Clergy Assistant or Office by Friday noon.

Dress Code

We don't want getting dressed up to stand in the way of getting you in the door! However, Shabbat and Festivals are a holy moment. We ask that you avoid shorts, t-shirts, jeans and sneakers. At a typical Friday night service, many men wear jackets or jackets and ties. For more family-friendly services including Tot Shabbat, Family Services and Shabbat Alive, the dress is slightly more casual, although we encourage again no shorts, t-shirts, jeans, and sneakers. We only ask that we dress appropriately modest for the worship of God.

Saturday morning Service-in-the-Round services are casual.  B'nai Mitzvah services in the sanctuary are dressier out of respect for the B'nai Mitzvah families.


Once a month, our Shabbat Alive! service will reenergize your soul. Join our rabbis and cantors along with some terrific contemporary musicians for Shabbat Alive! for a musical service that will get your feet tapping and your hands clapping.

We also offer a special blessing before the ark for anyone celebrating a birthday or anniversary that month.

Shabbat Alive! is scheduled for the fourth Friday of most months between September and May.  Please check the calendar or call to confirm.
