Mitzvah of the Month

Tzedakah of the Month - The October Tzedakah of the Month will be our Neighbors Helping Neighbors Food Drive - please give generously! Tzedakah Boxes are located in the Synagogue Lobby and outside the Youth Lounge.

Our NSS Annual Winter Coat Drive will continue through November 1st There are families on Long Island who desperately need our help. We are collecting, sorting and distributing gently worn and/or new coats for children and adults.

Our NSS Annual Food Drive will continue through October 15th and strives to assist families who face “food insecurity” in our Long Island communities. Please buy “something extra” and donate it to this cause. Shopping bags are available at NSS. Please return them filled with non-perishable food items with current “best by” dates.

This project is sponsored by the Tikkun Olam Committee in conjunction with TANS (Tikkun Alliance of the North Shore), NSS Clergy, Youth Groups, Religious School, Nursery School.

Look for the upcoming flyer with more details.

Please give generously to this worthwhile organization by donating to the Tzedakah Boxes located in the sanctuary lobby and outside the youth lounge.

We thank you again for your efforts and support,
Patrice Grossman & Ilene Zelniker
Tikkun Olam Co-Chairs

Shehecheyanu - Celebrating a Festive Occasion 

shehecheyanu
 
Baruch atah Adonai, Eloheinu Melech haolam,
shehehchehyanu, v'kiy'manu, v'higianu laz'man hazeh.

We praise You, Adonai our God, Sovereign of the universe, for giving us life,
for sustaining us, and for enabling us to reach this season.

Washing Hands

It is customary to remove all jewelry from the hands before washing. Fill a cup of water and pour it over your right hand. (Note: If your dominant hand is your left hand, reverse these instructions.) Next, take the cup in your right hand and pour it over the left hand. This is repeated two or three times. Then say the following blessing before drying your hands. Some do not speak between the hand-washing blessing and the blessing over food.
Blessings for Life's Moments

Baruch atah Adonai, Eloheinu Melech haolam,
asher kid'shanu b'mitzvotav v'tzivanu al n'tilat yadayim.

Our praise to You, Eternal our God, Sovereign of the universe:
You hallow us with Your mitzvot and command us to lift up our hands.

Eating Bread

Blessings for Life's Moments

Baruch atah Adonai, Eloheinu Melech haolam,
hamotzi lechem min haaretz.

Our praise to You, Eternal our God, Sovereign of the universe, who brings forth bread from the earth.

Lighting a Yahrzeith (Memorial) Candle

Before lighting a yahrzeit candle, take a moment to bring to mind the relative you are remembering. You might choose to read the following prayer:

O God, grant us the strength as we mourn the loss of ________.
We will always have cherished memories of him/her.
Bless our family with light and peace. May ______'s memory continue to serve as a blessing and an inspiration to all who knew and loved him/her.


Blessings for Life's Moments
Zichrono/zichronah livrachah
His/her memory is a blessing.

Mourner's Kaddish may be recited at this time.
