DSC 1761Welcome 

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.

15th Annual North Fork Foodie Tour Set for September 12, 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.

 

OUR CLERGY

Meet Our New Student 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.   The student Rabbi who will join us in September 2021 is Ada Luisa Sinacore (known as Luisa) who is currently completing her third year at HUC.   She is a Jewish innovator, devoted to social justice, diversity, equity and inclusion.  Learn more about Luisa here.
