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.

North Fork Foodie Tour Launched on September 13th!

This year we celebrated the bounty of the North Fork with our 14th Annual Foodie Tour.  But due to Covid-19, it was the first one delivered virtually.  We had and still have an exciting menu of live talks and demonstrations which have been recorded.  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. 

Check out our website here!   


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.
