*ANNOUNCING THE LINDA RIE COHEN SCHOLARSHIP FUND – LEARN MORE BELOW*
The North Fork Reform Synagogue is 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.
The North Fork Reform Synagogue has 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 of the North Fork Reform Synagogue. You’ll want to return.
The Linda Rie Cohen Scholarship Fund is an annual endowment of $10,000.00 from a generous gift by Fred Cohen to honor the memory of his late wife, who passed away in June 2013. Linda was a dedicated member of the North Fork Reform Synagogue and a North Fork enthusiast. She loved the people and the food of the North Fork and had a lifelong passion for music, the arts and education. The scholarships are administered by the North Fork Reform Synagogue and are for the benefit of the North Fork Jewish community.
The minimum scholarship award is $1,000.00, with a maximum of $5,000.00. Scholarships may be awarded on a subsequent basis, but are not guaranteed. Applications are open to individuals of any age who wish to pursue continued education in the field of the Arts or Sciences and can demonstrate passion and accomplishments in their chosen field of study. Priority will be given to applicants who are current or past residents of the North Fork, as well as family members and those with a connection to the North Fork.
A complete application and all supporting documents must be received by the North Fork Reform Synagogue by May 15, 2021. The Linda Rie Cohen Scholarship awards announcement will be made on June 30, 2021.

We’ve set the date for this year’s Foodie Tour. While it’s still a bit early to finalize plans, we want you to know that we will be back, bringing you all the best in local food production that the North Fork has to offer.
In September 2020, we celebrated the bounty of the North Fork with our 14th Annual Foodie Tour which was delivered virtually and it is still available for you to enjoy on the Foodie Tour web site. Take behind-the-scenes video tours and watch webinars to see the stories of the people who dedicate their lives to producing fresh, local foods and beverages on the North Fork. We are continually adding new content so check back often.
