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
Tikkun Olam Co-Chairs

Friday Night Services

We celebrate Shabbat with Erev Shabbat services every Friday night of the year. We frequently hold Shabbat dinners before services, a great way to get together with your family and to meet new friends. Check the calendar for the specific times and service.

If you're new to North Shore Synagogue, new to services or just visiting, be sure to introduce yourself to one of our Board members or our Friday Night Regulars – easily identifiable by their badges.

All of our Shabbat services are open to the community, whether to say kaddish for a loved one, to offer a prayer of healing or just to observe Shabbat.  You can find the text and recordings of Shabbat prayers here.

Classical Erev Shabbat Services

Typically two or three times a month we hold classical Friday night Erev Shabbat Services. Services are led by our rabbis and cantors, with beautiful and moving music and prayers that will help you relax and connect after a hectic week. We use the Reform movement's Mishkan T'filah prayer book which offers a variety of Hebrew prayers and English readings.

Shabbat Alive!

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.

Family Services

Once a month, join our talented Junior Choir for a wonderful Shabbat experience – whether you come with your family or not. Specially designed for school-aged children, this service is offered to the entire congregation.

Tot Shabbat

Designed for the 0 to pre-K crowd, each month we hold an early service with plenty of songs, story-telling, dancing, music and fun, usually followed by a Tot Oneg or a dinner. It's a great way to get your child comfortable in the sanctuary and to learn pleasure of celebrating Shabbat. Older siblings are more than welcome! Tot Shabbat services are held at 5:30 pm.

Saturday Mornings

Service-in-the-Round

Each Saturday throughout the year, we hold an intimate service-in-the-round. It may be led by a clergy or lay person, and provides a warm participatory experience. We read the Torah have a brief d'var Torah discussing an interesting section of the portion. Some people come weekly, some to observe a yahrzeit or just to observe Shabbat. No experience is necessary. Dress is casual.

Service-in-the-round starts around 10:15, following Torah study.

B'nai Mitzvah Services

We hold services in our sanctuary whenever we celebrate a Bar or Bat Mitzvah. Our Bat and Bat Mitzvah students along with the rabbi and cantor lead a beautiful service. B'nai Mitzvah services are open to the community. We appreciate more "Shabbat appropriate" dress.
