Shabbos Project

The Young Israel of Great Neck is proud to announce its participation in the community-wide Shabbos Project, October 24th and 25th.

Beginning last year in South Africa and now with over 212 cities and 33 countries participating, the Shabbos Project is an effort to have every Jewish person in the world—secular, Reform, Conservative, Orthodox and unaffiliated—join in the observance of one Shabbos together this coming October 24th and 25th (Parshat Noach). In Great Neck at least 22 synagogues from every denomination are “keeping it together.”

See the flyer below for information about the Thursday night challah baking, Friday night communal dinner and oneg, Shabbos morning explanatory service, Saturday night concert and other activities. Check the website, www.greatneckshabbatproject.com , for other participating synagogues and periodic updates on activities around town. To see how powerful this initiative can be, be sure to watch this incredible video about the beginning of the Shabbos Project in South Africa: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xhfe-MZcCjE. The Jews of South Africa transformed an entire community. We can do the same right here in Great Neck!

President's Message

The YIGN is a Modern Orthodox synagogue that was founded by six visionary families.  They dreamed of a participatory minyan that would be welcoming to all. After multiple small temporary locations, we moved to our present, beautiful facility at 236 Middle Neck Road in Great Neck, New York.  We are privileged to inhabit a newly constructed Beit Midrash and classroom building, as well as a full sized gym. Read more
