Kol Ha’NSHAma

Kol Ha’NSHAma is the first campaign of the academic year! Funds raised support and enhance NSHA’s academic and special programs across all of our campuses. Parents and extended NSHA family such as grandparents, alumni, and friends are encouraged to participate. Students also show their support in a special activity leading up to the campaign launch.

Day of Torah Learning

Commemorate a simcha or honor a loved one by sponsoring a Day of Torah Learning at NSHA! Funds raised through this special program go directly to educational Torah programs for our students. In recognition of this important day, it will be included in a community-wide email, mentioned by our Head of School in our morning announcements, and featured in our weekly newsletter.

  • Day of Torah Learning at one NSHA campus: $180
  • Day of Torah Learning at two NSHA campuses: $360
  • Day of Torah Learning at three NSHA campuses: $540

Annual Dinner Celebration

Support or register for the Annual Dinner Celebration.

The Annual Dinner is our school’s most important fundraiser of the year. Our entire NSHA family comes together to celebrate our progress and accomplishments and look toward our future.  Funds raised help support our incredible community of students and enable them to get the best Judaic and General Studies education possible.

By investing in NSHA, you help us nurture and guide our children to become kind and giving leaders in our Jewish community, who are fully engaged in Torah U’madah in the modern world. As in most private schools and Yeshiva Day Schools, tuition payments, although high, cannot cover the entire cost of a student’s education. We therefore rely on the generous philanthropic support of our extended family – not just parents and grandparents, but alumni and the wider community, as well – and hope that you will contribute generously to help us continue our mission.

For further information, please contact our Executive Director, Laura Cohen ‘85 at or  or call 516-487-8687 ext. 133.

Annual Summer Outing and Soiree

The NSHA fun continues during the summer!

Join us for a day filled with fun and friends at one of Great Neck’s beautiful country clubs. Start the day with breakfast before heading off to the tennis courts and golf course. Pamper yourself at the spa, stretch and relax with yoga and pilates, enjoy a delicious barbecue, and end the evening with a fantastic performance and delicious dinner.

All proceeds help us continue the programs and services that make our NSHA community so special.

Register, become a sponsor, or purchase raffle tickets for this year’s Summer Outing!

Grandparents Giving Circle

The NSHA Grandparents Giving Circle is a special community of lower school (grades T-8) grandparents who join together to pool a charitable donation, and decide how to allocate their donation for the benefit of our student community.

We know grandparents can be great contributors in thought and in tzedakah. A giving circle provides valuable insight, and is a wonderful way to give and feel connected to your grandchildren’s educational experience.

Endowment Campaign

Help us realize our long-term vision.

A robust endowment provides the resources North Shore Hebrew Academy needs to ensure its continued independence, sustainability, and unparalleled excellence. Planned gifts are integral to endowment growth and can come in the form of appreciated securities, bequests, life insurance, retirement plans, gift annuities, retained life estate, or charitable trusts.

You can make a lasting contribution to future generations by designating NSHA as a beneficiary of your estate plan. In doing so, you make a gift that assures NSHA’s future, while also possibly providing tax benefits for yourself and your family. Unless you designate otherwise, all planned gifts will be added to the school’s board-designated endowment, when received, to ensure that your gift supports NSHA in perpetuity.

If you are interested in making a planned gift, or would like more information about contributing a Gift of Securities, a Matching Gift, or Life Annuity, please contact Laura Cohen ‘85, Executive Director, at or call (516) 487-8687 Ext. 133.
