YINR Job Networking WhatsApp Group. Recent economic events and uncertainty have negatively impacted a number of our members. To assist, we are organizing a YINR WhatsApp group of members who are willing to assist those members of our community looking for new positions. Please note that (1) only admins will be able to post to the group and (2) job seekers will not be identified by name to the group. We would share a description of the position sought and then members in a position to help could DM the group admins. You can also reach out to Lawrence Burian, Yisroel Friedman, Ari Glass, Myra Mogilner, Carmiel Schoenfeld, or Noah Weisberger with any questions or suggestions. And, of course, if you’re looking for a position please DM us or contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org (ask to join the WhatsApp group).

Please consider gifting appreciated securities to YINR as payment for outstanding balances or as a new contribution. Donating shares of stock or mutual funds that have appreciated in value since their purchase affords you a charitable income tax deduction equal to the fair market value of the securities at the time of donation and avoids the capital gains tax that would be incurred on a sale of these securities.
Please contact the office when you are donating stock to identify yourself, the stock listing symbol, and the estimated value. Any questions, please click here to contact the office.
