Reaffirmation of Our Traditions (Takana) - Shabbat, Jun 24 at our Synagogues

As we do every year, there will be a special reading of the 'Takana' in all 3 synagogues on Shabbat Jun, 24th.
This Special Day has already become a Mashadi community Institution to remind us every year of our traditions (per the UMJCA by-laws) regarding intermarriage. Intermarriage poses the greatest threat to Jews in the USA and it is important to keep this Takana fresh in our minds. For more information please contact David Kordvani, Jonny Hazghian and Ephraim Aminoff.

FIDF Legacy Program July 21-23

A message from the Israel and Zionism committee in collaboration with the MYC and the FIDF.
On the weekend of July 21-23 we will be hosting a group of 15 Israeli Bar and Bat Mitzvah aged kids who have lost their fathers or brothers fighting on behalf of Israel in the IDF. The children will be accompanied by social workers and IDF commanders as part of a program that sends children who have lost family members on a two week trip to camp in the United States. They will be guests of the community for that weekend with several fun programs for them. Many generous families have already opened up their homes to host the children and the IDF commanders, but we are looking for a few more volunteers to host a minimum of three people per household (two kids and one IDF member. Households with children of Bar/Bat Mitzvah age and members who can speak a little Hebrew would be preferable. If you are interested in hosting, please contact Mehran Bassali at 1 (917) 509-7329, Jason Levian at (516) 776-5656 or Yoni Nitzani at (917) 783-9008


Meorot at North Shore Hebrew Academy

North Shore Hebrew Academy is a proud partner and the host of Meorot, a new Judaic Studies special education after school program at our Cherry Lane campus, which will launch in September 2017. Meorot -- which is the first program of its kind in Great Neck -- will allow children in grades K-3 who require a special education classroom environment and are unable to attend a Jewish day school, to experience a Judaic studies curriculum taught by special education teachers -- including Limudei Kodesh, Hebrew language and Jewish identity -- that students in a Jewish day school enjoy each day.
The benefits of the Meorot program go beyond the students who attend the program. We all benefit. The establishment of this program speaks to the core values of our community, our commitment to Jewish education for all our children, and the importance of making every child feel a part of our community, regardless of their limitations. It teaches our children empathy, compassion and responsibility. Please join us at the inaugural informational event this coming Monday, June 12th at 8pm at the home of Tara and Irv Golombeck - 24 Arleigh Road, Great Neck NY 11021.
