Welcome to the website of the Young Israel of New Rochelle led by Rabbi Reuven Fink.

A member of the National Council of Young Israel, YINR has grown dramatically in recent years and serves 380 member families of all ages. YINR and the greater New Rochelle Jewish community provide a wide range of programs, services and other infrastructure.

We are located in the Wykagyl section of New Rochelle, often referred to as the “Queen City of the Sound.” New Rochelle is just 30 minutes to New York City by train or car and was recently selected by Business Week as one of the best places to raise kids.

The Flame High Holiday Services.  The Flame Services will be held again this year at 1228 North Avenue in the Social Hall. Flame services are somewhat briefer, explanatory and give time for questions and discussions, but are still run in a manner that ensures that all halachic tefillah requirements are met.  The services are designed both for our members who want to study the tefillot in greater depth and as outreach to the community. While the services are not beginners’ services, people from all backgrounds are comfortable there.  You and anyone you know may attend any or all of the services. There is no charge for these services, but reservations are suggested. Please contact Rabbi Mat Hoffman for more information at rabbimat@gmail.com.
