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.

You are invited and encouraged to let us know the name and yahrzeit of your beloved ones who have departed from us. We will honor their memory by announcing their name at our synagogue during services. May you be comforted among all the mourners of Israel.

In Jewish tradition, when the year of mourning is over, mourners are expected to return to a fully normal life. There are several occasions each year when our loved ones who have passed on are memorialized. The most significant of these is yahrzeit, the anniversary of the death, which is observed according to the Hebrew calendar. As is the case in all Jewish holy days, yahrzeit observance begins at night. A 24-hour candle is lit and one may attend synagogue to recite the Kaddish [the memorial prayer]. It is traditional to avoid attending any celebrations or parties on the day of yahrzeit, and some people fast on that day.

An English Translation 
Glorified and sanctified be God's great name throughout the world which He has 
created according to His will. May He establish His kingdom in your lifetime and during 
your days, and within the life of the entire House of Israel, speedily and soon; and say, Amen.

May His great name be blessed forever and to all eternity.

Blessed and praised, glorified and exalted, extolled and honored, adored and lauded be 
the name of the Holy One, blessed be He, beyond all the blessings and hymns, praises 
and consolations that are ever spoken in the world; and say, Amen.

May there be abundant peace from heaven, and life, for us
and for all Israel; and say, Amen.

He who creates peace in His celestial heights, may He create peace for us and for all 
Israel; and say, Amen.

 

May they rest in peace and may their memory ever be for a blessing… At this moment, I pause for thought in memory of my beloved...........................I give thanks for the blessing of life, of companionship and of memory. I am grateful for the strength and faith that sustained me in the hour of my bereavement. Though sorrow lingers, I have learned that love is stronger than death. Though my loved one is beyond my sight, I do not despair for I sense my beloved in my heart as a living presence. ustained by words of faith, comforted by precious memories, we kindle the light in remembrance. “The human spirit is the light of Adonai” (Proverbs 20:27). As this light is pure and clear, so may the blessed memory of the goodness and nobility of character of our dear..............illumine our souls.
