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.
