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.

Bnei Akiva Snif at Home. This week’s Parsha is Parshat Chukat + Balak! In this packet you will find a Dvar Torah written by your Madrichim who miss you very much and a game which should be printed out and cut out before Shabbos! We hope this brings a taste of Snif into your homes. We miss everyone so much and hope that you all have amazing Shabbos!   
This week’s Dvar Torah was written by Max Wolff and Noah Bodner! We also have a super fun Israel matching game!  Click here for the Dvar Torah and game packet – and enjoy!

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.
