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,

Members of Brotherhood enjoy fellowship, learning and service to the congregation. Whether ushering during the High Holidays, building our Sukkah, or just enjoying a quiet morning on a fishing boat together, Brotherhood events instill a sense of community and teamwork.

Brotherhood offers many exciting events for its members throughout the year. Breakfasts and dinners with guest speakers have given congregants the opportunity to mingle with and hear the inside story from sports personalities, media stars and dignitaries alike.

Brotherhood sponsors numerous family events, including fishing trips, barbecues and baseball games. At our Annual Brotherhood Family Chanukah Breakfast, with nearly 400 participants each year, our children feast on pancakes and latkes and sing Chanukah songs. Together, we celebrate the lighting of the menorah, and each child receives chocolate Chanukah gelt and a dreidel.

Our service efforts extend beyond the synagogue to the community at large. We are the ushers during the High Holiday services. Along with our Hebrew School students, we erect the synagogue Sukkah for Sukkot. Periodically, we hold political breakfasts that provide members of the entire community the opportunity to meet and to listen to all the candidates running for office each year. Brotherhood also supports the noble and highly respected task of the Jewish Chautauga Society, creating a better understanding and appreciation of Jews and Judaism through education. Membership in Brotherhood also gives you membership in Men of Reform Judaism, the international organization of synagogue men's clubs.

If you are interested in performing a mitzvah, supporting charitable causes, creating new friendships, being entertained and informed, or merely boosting Brotherhood's ability to service North Shore Synagogue, Brotherhood awaits you.

We invite you to join us—become a Brotherhood member and get involved.

Special events and activities sponsored by Brotherhood have included:

  • Summer BBQ and Brotherhood Shabbat service
  • High Holy Day ushering
  • Sukkah building and BBQ
  • Chanukah Pancake and Latke Breakfast
  • B'nai Mitzvah Boot Camp for Fathers
  • Paid Up Dinners and Breakfasts
  • Long Island Ducks games
  • Family Bowling
  • Fishing trips

Brotherhood Highlights

Friendships are made here! 

The Men's Club offers the opportunity to expand one's circle of friends, to get involved in Jewish affairs, and to contribute to our Congregation. 


The Men’s Club is an auxiliary organization. Our primary purpose is to provide social, educational, cultural and spiritual services for the men, as well as for the broader community. While we provide opportunities for men in our congregation to gather together for fellowship, recreation, personal growth and mutual support, we also work to support the mission, services and activities of the Congregation. 

We devote most of our time and resources to activities in these four areas:

  1. Social interaction among the men of the congregation in order to build friendships among men and their families in support of our objective of building Jewish "Community" among our members.
  2. Intellectual interests of men in the Congregation. We will program for the unique needs and interests of men, being sensitive to the role men play in modern American families, egalitarian congregational life, and in Jewish family life.
  3. Spiritual interests of men in the Congregation. These spiritual interests are founded in our Jewish traditions, but open to modern approaches to spirituality, especially men's spirituality.
  4. The interests of our men ing'milut hasadim (deeds of kindness) and tikkun olam (working to serve and improve our congregation, our local community and our world).


  • Annual Family BBQ
  • Superbowl Bash
  • World Wide Wrap
  • Monthly discussions
  • And a whole lot more
