Join YIS & UJA
Give Back With A Backpack
Although the donation deadline has passed, please join the Young Israel of Scarsdale and UJA Westchester in ensuring each child has the tools to succeed in the classroom this upcoming school year. Young Israel of Scarsdale will be hosting our own “Backpack Packing Party." Each $25 donation to UJA Westchester will fill one backpack with school supplies. Please consider purchasing as many backpacks as you can!
We invite you to join us with your children to help us pack the backpacks! ALL AGES WELCOME!
Date: August 1
Time: 3-5PM, under the YIS Tent
Cost: $25 for each backpack

to our Backpacking Party underneath the tent!
Every child deserves a shot at success. Given the difficulties of the past year, a new school year should be a fresh start no matter a child's background or level of family income. Yet, many children from underserved communities start school without the basic supplies they need: paper, pencils, binders, and notebooks.
By supporting UJA’s Annual Back to School Drive, led by UJA's nonprofit partner Westchester Jewish Community Services (WJCS), we can work together to make sure no family has to choose between paying their electric bill or buying school supplies.
Important YIS COVID Related Announcement
We have created an e-mail address at to make it easier for individuals who have been to shul to self-report COVID-19 cases. The e-mails will only be sent to a small group (including a medical professional) who will then determine appropriate steps to be taken, if any. As always, reports will be kept confidential unless the individual elects to be identified to assist in contact tracing.
Our community is honored to have the following young men and women affiliated with YIS families serving as IDF Soldiers. Please keep them in your prayers always: Yaakov Eyal, Cfir Feinberg, Ori Feinberg, Ahron Finkel, Shlomo Fried, Miki Hill, Michael Kesselman, Daniel Mestel, Gabriel Mestel, Eden Shmuel.
Weekly gathering of women in our community who recite Tehillim in the merit of people who are in challenging circumstances. 
YIS has had an operational Mikveh for more than 40 years. It is convenient and a strong statement of our commitment to religious ritual. Please support our Mikveh which is open every evening by appointment for women. The Mikveh number is 914-472-0946.
Shiffy Friedman answers womens questions regarding Mikveh, Taharat Hamishpacha,

The blood center is in desperate need of donations. There is much demand for blood due to the increased hospitalizations and low supply because of the inability to conduct drives. We strongly encourage you to donate at the 19 donor centers across NY and NJ. Additional information on donor eligibility and COVID-19 precautions is available here .
