YI Scarsdale


Welcome to the Young Israel of Scarsdale, a Modern-Orthodox Synagogue and a vibrant, caring community. We are firm believers in the principles of Achdut – Unity, Kehilla- Community, and Areyvut – Responsibility for all Jews. We seek to engage and inspire through a variety of means: from soulful moments of Prayer, to stimulating discourses of Torah Study, and creative children’s programming. We foster an atmosphere of spiritual growth and continued commitment to Halacha, Am Yisrael, and Eretz Yisrael. 

NEW DATES: March 1 & 8th for our Pre-Purim Lecture Series with Rabbi David Fohrman @8:00pm

YIS Assists

Dear Friends,

A few years ago, with the help of some generous donors, we formed the "YIS Assists" program, which has enabled the Shul to purchase medical equipment like walkers, wheelchairs, Shabbat Scooters etc. for people with non-ambulatory family members in need of borrowing these items. 
Recently, it has come to our attention that there are some members in need of in-home medical equipment that can be very costly, but extremely vital to their daily functioning.   This is, indeed, a great Mitzvah that we have been blessed with the opportunity to help out with. Please consider a donation that will enable the shul to assist our friends and neighbors in need of our help.  You can make the donation on the shul website under the category “YIS Assists” or click here to donate. 

Wishing all a Shabbat Shalom,

Rabbi Jonathan Morgenstern
