Chanukah Happening

Mitzvah of the Month

Tzedakah of the Month - The The January 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

Tamar FixTamar Fix became Executive Director in fall of 2015. For the previous five years, Tamar served as the Director of the Kids Corner after school program at the Central Queens YM & YWHA. The eclectic nature of community center work has yielded many agency-wide opportunities beyond the role of after school director, including leading fundraisers, staff development training, and staff recruiting for the department. Under Tamar's leadership, Kids Corner experienced unprecedented growth and programmatic innovations. One of her greatest joys as an after school director was having the opportunity to connect with people on a multi-generational level and she feels gratified in knowing the same opportunity lies in working at North Shore. lt is her every hope & desire that she will meet and get to know most, if not every, constituent of North Shore Synagogue.

Tamar Fix received her B.S. from Queens College and earned her M.A. from Hofstra University in Marriage & Family Therapy. She is currently working towards earning her licensure as an MFT. In addition to her Jewish communal work, Tamar is a published author whose writing has appeared in both book form and periodicals. Fluent in Hebrew & raised steeped in both Israeli and American culture, Tamar is equally at home in each. Tamar currently resides in Queens, NY with her three year old son Nate.

Sherry GutesSherry Gutes started as Director of Congregational Learning in July 2013.  She grew up in Poughkeepsie, NY, where her family's involvement in synagogue life served as a catalyst for her lifelong involvement in Jewish communal life. Five summers at Camp Ramah still serve as THE key piece of her formative Jewish years.

As a Jewish Educator, Sherry acknowledges the extraordinary power of Jewish camping in helping to form a young person's strong Jewish identity. Sherry is a graduate of the Morasha Teacher Preparation Institute, the Jewish Family Educators Institute, the Principals Leadership Institute, the Mentor & Protege Program and the Leadership Institute for Congregational School Educators, a three year initiative of HUC-JIR and JTS, and funded by UJA-Federation.

Sherry has directed three other Religious Schools on LI, and is grateful to have had the opportunity to facilitate major change initiatives over the past 12 years, including Re-Imagine and LOMED. She has a deep and personal connection with Israel, and continually seeks to engage students and families with everything Israel. Her philosophy is that teaching Israel, as with most things Jewish, is not dependent on textbooks, but on meaningful and personalized experiences. Sherry Gutes is excited to begin new conversations about Jewish Learning at NSS, and welcomes your thoughts, ideas and feedback. Together, we can accomplish great things.
