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.


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

The Board of Trustees governs the affairs of the synagogue. 

The Board meets every month throughout the year.  Congregants are welcome to attend Board meetings except for executive sessions which typically occur at the end of meeting. The Board is always interested in hearing the views and concerns of all members.  If there is a topic that you wish to raise, you must contact the president prior to the meeting for approval.  The president can be reached at president@northshoresynagogue.org or by calling the office at 516-921-2282.

Board members are selected by the Nominating Committee which is formed each year with Board and non-Board members of the congregation at the Annual Meeting in June.  If you are interested in serving on the Board, you can contact a Board member, the president or the office to determine the chair of the Nominating Committee. Board members are nominated for a three year term. Generally the committee meets starting in January or February and finalizes the slate around April.

Sukkot, the "Festival of Booths" is the week-long Jewish celebration of the fall harvest.   It is a joyous holiday following the more somber High Holy Days.  Learn about Sukkot customs, symbols and meaning at ReformJudaism.org.

North Shore Synagogue observes Sukkot with Erev Sukkot and Sukkot morning services, as well as events throughout the week for congregants of all ages including our Religious School students. We eat, shake the lulav, sniff the etrog and celebrate in our beautfiul sukkah.
