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.

YIOZ Expansion Update

We are pleased to report that plans for the expansion of YIOZ are moving forward. A committee consisting of: NachmanMazurek (Chair), Josh Neuman, Miriam Schacter, Amit Stern and Sam Susswein met with several architects and recently recommended unanimously to the board of trustees moving forward with one firm who will provide services throughout the construction project.

Next Shabbat (June 24th) immediately following the graduation Kiddush, we will update the entire YIOZ community on this development and share a fundraising campaign update. The committee and board will be happy to answer questions at that time and are available to discuss questions about the project at all times. Following this update, we will conduct a general membership vote via email to approve moving forward with the architectural expenses.
