About YIS

The Young Israel of Stamford is a community-focused, family oriented, devoted, warm and inviting Orthodox synagogue where members from all backgrounds and cultures are welcome to participate in our dynamic community.

Our Values

Community-Focused
We recognize that we are responsible to more than our membership and play a role in the larger Jewish community.

Family Oriented
We feel it's important for the entire family to be involved in shul life and are dedicated to passing on the Torah and mitzvot ideals of our synagogue to our children.

Devoted
Our members are committed to the synagogue and it is through their efforts and devotion that its programs and services continue.

Warm
Members regard one another - and every guest - as family, and the membership remains at a size that allows us to maintain our haimsche feeling.

Inviting
We welcome all Jews into our doors for prayer, learning, and programs and we reach out to the nonobservant and unaffiliated.
