NORTHSHORE TRADITIONAL SYNAGOGUE is a new synagogue in the Northshore Community. The Synagogue is affiliated with Torah Affiliated Kehilote of North America an organization representing Traditional and Modern Orthodox congregations.
The World has experienced a radicalization in society from our political perspective to our religious values. These changes have been absolutely frightening. Now is a time for us to hold on to the ideals and values that have guided us and given us comfort. Northshore Traditional is community representing moderation grounded in Torah traditions which we hold dear. For those who grew up in the Orthodox movement of the 20th century, the era of Dr. Samuel Belkin and his “Blue Print for the Sixties” when Jews would “study the moral and spiritual purposes of life” or the Conservative Movement of Dr. Louis Finkelstein and Rabbi Shaul Lieberman, we find comfort in faith grounded in moderation.
Rav Liebermancame to America from Motel to teach “American Jews to make a commitment to study and observe the Torah." Chief Justice Earl Warren of Unitied States Supreme Court was convinced to spend a Shabbat at the Seminary to study Talmud by these great scholars.
It is in this spirit that NORTHSHORE TRADITIONAL SYNAGOGUE proudly dedicates itself to traditional observances of Judaism.

As a community we honestly face the challenges of our day without yielding to the pressures of social trends. The Synagogue is a place that guides children and adults to the understanding that a personal, spiritual, relationship with G-d brings meaning and value to life.
