The Yachad Shabbaton is returning! Looking for Hosts! We are hoping to once again host Yachad members at our annual SAR/Yachad Shabbaton, which will take place March 25, 2023. Yachad cannot move forward with the Shabbaton unless they know that there will be enough housing available. At this time, we are only soliciting interest (this is not a commitment). Hosts would be asked to provide 2 bedrooms (or more) for Yachad members and their counselors (please also indicate if you can offer first floor/handicap accessible accommodations). We are hoping to identify 20-25 homes. If you are interested in this opportunity, please email Lauryn Weiser at email@example.com.
Security. Reminder to please be alert and aware of whom you allow into the shul building. If you don’t recognize someone seeking entry, please inquire who they are and why they want to enter the shul. If you feel uncomfortable with their response(s), they should be denied access. Please immediately report any suspicious individuals to a security guard on Shabbat or to our monitored email address, firstname.lastname@example.org, on a weekday.

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.
