Mitzvah of the Month

Tzedakah of the Month - The July/August Tzedakah of the Month is Sunrise Day Camp-Long Island. Sunrise Day Camp-Long Island is the world’s first full-summer day camp for children with cancer and their siblings, provided completely free of charge. And because Sunrise is a day camp, it does all this while allowing the children to continue their medical treatment and enjoy the comfort and safety of their own homes at night. Sunrise Day Camp-Long Island is a proud member of the Sunrise Association, whose mission is to bring back the joys of childhood to children with cancer and their siblings world-wide, through the creation of Sunrise Day Camps, Year-Round Programs and In-Hospital Recreational Activities, all offered free of charge. Sunrise Day Camp-Long Island is a program of the Friedberg JCC, a beneficiary agency of UJA-Federation of New York. Kindly give generously as the money collected in the Tzedakah boxes during the months of July and August will go to this cause.


We thank you again for your efforts and support,

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.
