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.
