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.

Thanksgiving Meals for New Rochelle Police and Firefighters.  Once again, we will be sponsoring catered meals to New Rochelle’s Finest and Bravest on Thanksgiving, Thursday, November 26. Each meal costs $36 and an entire station can be fed for $250. This is not a fundraiser and the money goes directly to the meals. We are close to our goal, but not quite there yet. Checks can be made out to YINR with “Thanksgiving” indicated on the memo line or click  here  for online payment. Unfortunately, while this year we are not asking for volunteers to deliver the meals on Thanksgiving, our Superhero  police and fire departments deserve these meals more than ever!

Important Precaution Reminders:
– Keep social distancing – from friends, family, children, grandchildren. This applies even after we have tested negative and/or are out of quarantine. Please be sure not to congregate and be sure to stay further than 6 feet from others when you are outdoors.
– We all wish to help others and be supportive. This is best accomplished by telephone or computer communication. If we do not protect ourselves, we are automatically endangering others.
– We need to refrain from inviting family or guests for meals, for chats, despite that this goes against our instincts and tradition.
– ALL shopping in stores involves possible exposure. Best to shop online. If absolutely necessary to visit a store, time visits when shopping density is lowest. Small stores which have had less traffic are preferable to larger stores.
