B'Yachad Together: An Inclusive Shabbat Service

BYachadFlyerFinalIn the Bible, God states, “My house shall be a house for all peoples.”

We decided that we should live up to that commandment.
Therefore, we have created a new program called "B’Yachad Together" – an inclusive Shabbat experience.

Families with special needs will come together to celebrate Shabbat in an accessible environment designed to embrace a range of sensory, language, and learning differences.

We are proud to offer this first program on Friday May 4th, 5:30 – 7:00pm.

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.

Under Barbara's leadership, our nursery school has become the premier early childhood experience staffed by the best teachers and consistently offering the most innovative programs. Barbara started directing early childhood programs in 1985. She worked as a teacher and a director on the South Shore of Long Island for 12 years.

Barbara feels privileged to work with children every day and the lessons she has learned from them has helped her to grow professionally. She is an experienced teacher and a very "hands on" director. Barbara and her very qualified caring staff attend Board of Jewish Early Childhood Professional Conference twice a year. These workshops and seminars help us keep our classroom environments exciting, productive and challenging.

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.
