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.

Stock Payments.

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.
