A Jewish community is only as strong as its institutions. We owe it to ourselves and our children to continue to support NSHA and to ensure that the Great Neck Jewish Community stays healthy and strong for years to come.

I am so grateful to all of the staff at NSHAHS for coming together during this difficult period of time and making our students feel connected both spiritually and emotionally. It takes a village to work remotely and this has been a challenging time for us all. Thank you to all of the teachers at NSHAHS for always being so supportive and wonderful. I am so blessed. May you all be healthy and strong.

Adam ‘93 and Naomi Cohen

Thank you for giving me this opportunity to show my appreciation to NSHA for all that has been done to ensure continuity of learning during COVID-19. NSHA’s focus on meeting the needs of each individual student in a warm and supportive environment, while providing an excellent academic education, makes our community school standout during the best of times, but even more so during these difficult times. As an alum and current parent I am very proud to be a part of the NSHA family!

As an alumni it’s my pleasure to help those in need to an institution that I personally have been Involved with for many years.

We are so proud to send our children to NSHA, and are so thankful for this warm, welcoming, and resilient community. We thank all of the teachers, staff, administration, and leadership for guiding us through this very difficult time.
Matthew and Hannah Gorski

During these difficult times, we hope that everyone is staying safe and healthy. Our girls miss being in school with their friends and constantly talk about who they are going to see and the things they can't wait to do when they go back. Remi and Olivia's teachers have been so wonderful and patient, especially when trying to keep toddlers in front of the screen for an extended period of time. We so appreciate all the hard work and effort that the teachers, faculty, and staff have put in to make the online learning experience so enjoyable. We hope that many other students will be able to enjoy the learning experiences, both inside and outside of the classroom, that our children have. Thank you for your continued hard work and dedication.

NSHA is our link to this community - we simply can’t imagine a world without it. We are so proud to be associated with NSHA for all that it symbolizes and its contributions. Thank you.
Charles and Doreen Hadid

Jewish education is the cornerstone of our faith, and one of the greatest investments one can make in their child. For many decades, NSHA has been instilling our children with moral, religious, and ethical teachings, helping to ensure the continuity of the Jewish people. As a former student, and a current parent, I have witnessed the NSHA staff, faculty, and boards gone above and beyond the call of duty for our children. G-d willing, I look forward to seeing the fruits of their labor for many years to come.
Michael ‘97 and Sadie Hakimian

I began my NSHA journey in Kindergarten, and completed it as a member of the very first graduating class of NSHA High School in 2004. NSHA means the world to me and my family. My father, William Helmreich, z""l, lovingly dedicated decades of his life to the betterment of this school. It is in his beloved memory that I make this donation.

We are joining the Kol Ha’NSHAma campaign in continuation of our long time association with the North Shore Hebrew Academy and the Great Neck community. We were privileged to donate a Torah in memory of our parents when the North Shore Hebrew Academy High School opened its new building. Though we have not had a direct family connection with N.S.H.A. in fifteen years, we are inspired by our children and grandchildren to stand with those who are committed to keep our faith, learning and community strong through the highest standards of excellence in education.
Robert and Sydelle Knepper

On behalf of the Moghadasian Family we'd like to thank the school faculties, especially the teachers that have worked so hard to get our children through this school year during these unprecedented times.
Dror and Deborah Moghadasian

My gift is made in memory of William Helmreich z"l and in honor of all the former NSHA Presidents and lay leaders, who worked tirelessly to make NSHA the incredible yeshiva it is today. This group taught their children -- by example -- the importance of community involvement and the meaning of communal responsibility. We must now do the same.

I have never been more proud to be a NSHA alumna than I have been these past couple of months. Our faculty and administration have not only worked tirelessly to educate our children without missing a beat, but they have truly given of themselves to provide warmth, stability and cohesiveness to our children during these uncertain times. May they go from strength to strength.
Norman and Michelle '79 Rutta

In memory of my esteemed predecessor, Dr. William Helmreich, z"l, a brilliant educator who spent countless hours focused on bettering NSHA. Willy made each member of our school community feel welcome and special, and set a shining example for all as a true mensch.

We give this donation in honor of Morah Susan Lieberman and her incredible 50 years of devotion to the students of North Shore Hebrew Academy. Not only is she a brilliant teacher of Torah, but is a true model for our community of chessed and middot. Both Nadine ‘95 and our daughter Simmy ‘20 have had the privilege of being her students and have been inspired by her Torah knowledge and wisdom. We hope that our community can gather together safely in good health to celebrate and thank Morah Lieberman in the near future.
