Young Israel Ohab Zedek of North Riverdale/Yonkers is a warm and welcoming community synagogue located in Riverdale. YIOZ aspires to be the religious, intellectual and spiritual home for each of its members. In the last several years, YIOZ has welcomed an influx of young families who together with the community's pioneers have created a unique shul, renowned for its warmth and the diversity of its membership. This is an exciting time to join the YIOZ community. New programming for youth, additional minyanim for tefillah, more classes and shiurim for adults, expanded opportunities for chesed, advocacy for Israel and social action, all ensure that each member of YIOZ contributes to, and feels a part of, this growing and vibrant kehillah.

Yamim Noraim 5778 at YIOZ

Dear YIOZ members and friends,

With August approaching, we begin turning our attention to the upcoming Yamim Noraim, a special season at YIOZ. We are excited that this year we will be praying with brand new, beautiful Koren Machzorim (donated by the Danishefsky, Rosen and Shayevitz families) and that we have a wonderful group of Ba'alei tefillah to lead us in prayer.
• We remind the YIOZ community that all seats for immediate family members are included in family membership.
• Extended family and guests are always welcome, with a suggested donation of $250 per seat ($150 for Rosh Hashana and $100 for Yom Kippur).

This year, due to the growth of our membership, we are asking ALL MEMBERS to inform us of your seating needs for Rosh Hashana and Yom Kippur by September 6th.

Last year, we needed additional seating on Yom Kippur and this year we would like to be prepared in advance. We do not anticipate
needing to assign seats, but it is critical that everyone who plans on joining us (or who thinks they will join us) inform us of your plans in advance.


Please fill out this brief form
Looking forward to a meaningful Elul and High
Holiday season!
