Preserving Our Heritage

North Country Reform Temple Ner Tamid strives to provide Long Island’s North Shore with a center for Reform Jewish Values. Our Temple supports and promotes a dynamic Jewish community from generation to generation through an inclusive and participatory approach to worship, study, mitzvot and social activities.

Discovering Judaism

Discover Judaism though inclusive classes such as the ABC’s of Judaism or Lunch & Learn with Rabbi Liss. Come discover the North Shore’s best kept secret - The Little Temple in the Woods.


Our congregation celebrates the holidays throughout the year in some very warm and special ways. Please join us as we observe and celebrate the Jewish holiday cycle!

Welcoming Diversity

People of all backgrounds will find a home in our congregation. Some of our members come from traditionally observant homes, while others have led a more secular lifestyle. Many of our most active members are Jews by choice, and we welcome the participation of parents and partners who continue in their own faith as they raise a family in ours. Those who have felt cut off from religious life for a variety of reasons have found a spiritual home at NCRT.

Hebrew School - Pre School -12 Grade

10 26 10WELCOME TO THE 2017- 2018 SCHOOL YEAR

The Hebrew School at North Country Reform Temple- Ner Tamid is a great place to be!  Renamed to M.I.T. for Mensch in Training, it is our goal that every child be a person of integrity and honor.

Our teachers are talented, dedicated, and they care! Our teachers and staff work together throughout the year and strive to bring the best Jewish Education possible to each of our students.

At NCRT, we recognize that each student is unique. Our teachers attend multiple workshops throughout the year with highly qualified facilitators. Workshops involve hands-on learning for our staff. Our opening staff meeting focuses on how to teach in a variety of ways to reach out to multiple types of learners within a daily set of lessons.  We are aware that our students have spent a full day at school on Tuesday before they arrive. The creative teaching methods of our staff on both Sundays and Tuesdays have been shaped to reflect that awareness as well as the knowledge that our students lead busy lives.  

We are looking forward to a fantastic year! We wish each family a Happy and Sweet New Year!
