WE’VE GONE VIRTUAL! 

JOIN OUR SERVICES AND EVENTS ON ZOOM

 

DSC 1761Welcome to the North Fork Reform Synagogue

We are a small inclusive congregation meeting spiritual, educational, social and cultural enrichment needs of our members in the Reform Jewish tradition. We embrace families and individuals, Jews by birth or “by choice,” non-Jews and Jews regardless of ethnic or racial background, sexual orientation or gender identity.

We support the local community through outreach programs with special emphasis on the Arts and social justice issues.

We have no permanent staff, so our members build strong bonds as we work together to enrich our lives and keep our congregation vibrant. Our student rabbis from Hebrew Union College give us fresh perspectives as we learn together.

Drop in for a service or event and experience the exceptional warmth and friendship. You’ll want to return.

North Fork Foodie Tour

This year we will be celebrating the bounty of the North Fork with our 14th Annual Foodie Tour.  But due to Covid-19, it will be the first one delivered virtually.  The Foodie Tour will launch on Sunday, September 13 on Zoom and later will be available to stream on You Tube.  We will have an exciting menu of talks and demonstrations.  Take behind-the-scenes video tours to see and hear the stories of the people who dedicate their lives to producing fresh, local foods and beverages on the North Fork.

OUR CLERGY

Our Rabbi
 
Our Rabbis are students at Hebrew Union College-Jewish Institute of Religion.  Helping to train new Rabbis is an important part of our mission.  We are inspired by the fresh perspective each new student brings to us as we learn from one another.  Shoshana was born in Mbale, Uganda where the majority of Abayudaya Jews of Uganda live.  We are looking forward to learn more about Shoshana’s fascinating background.
