  • The Eruv has been checked and is up for Shabbos Parshas Balak (07/21/2016).
  • This Sunday is the Fast of 17-Tamuz. This year, it is on the 18th of Tamuz, because we don’t fast on Shabbat.  Fast begins at 4:03am, Shacharis is at 8:30am, Mincha/Ma’ariv at 7:45pm and the fast ends at 9:06pm.  This is the beginning of what is known as the period of the Three Weeks when we mourn the destruction of the Beit haMikdash.  During these three weeks celebrations are limited, we don’t take haircuts, listen to music, purchase new clothing and other restrictions.
  • Seudah Shlishit this Shabbos is sponsored by Meir Navie in commemoration of the yahrzeit of his grandmother, Hosnat bat Rabbi Nisan.  May her neshama have an aliyah.

  • SAVE THE DATE!  Monday, September 19th at 7:00pm in the shul for the annual sisterhood dinner.  Our special program for all women will be a book discussion led by renowned speaker Mrs. Perrie Nordlicht.  We will be discussing the book "Rebbe: The Life and Teachings of Menachem M. Schneerson, the Most Influential Rabbi in Modern History" written by Rabbi Joseph Telushkin.  People who read the book will enjoy the discussion even more.  Even if you just read parts of it, you’ll enjoy it though the dinner/ book discussion is open to those who have not read the book as well.  Please invite friends and family to join us.  More information to follow.

In 1966, several local families joined together to fulfill their dream of having an Orthodox Shul in North Bellmore. With high hopes for the future, they formed the Young Israel of North Bellmore with Dr. Harold Nierenberg Z”L as president, and they dedicated our current building within a year.

Here we are 50 years later and the Young Israel of North Bellmore is still active and strong and proud. We are very happy to have recently welcomed our new esteemed leader, Rabbi Chaim Bogopulsky, his lovely wife Batya, and their three daughters. He is only our third Rabbi in 50 years. Our amazing alumni and children represent us and excel as accomplished professionals in their fields and strong leaders in their congregations all over the world. We are so proud of their successes.

We are therefore very excited to be celebrating this milestone 50th anniversary of our Shul at several events during 2016, culminating with our gala dinner IY”H on

SUNDAY EVENING, NOVEMBER 13, 2016, at 6:00 pm
