Kol Nidre Appeal 5782

As we approach Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur, we are pleased to kick off our 5782 Kol Nidre appeal. Since its inception over 40 years ago, the Young Israel of Stamford has carried on a wonderful tradition of offering seats for the high holidays, to members and non-members alike, at no charge.  Even this year, eighteen months into a global pandemic and facing renewed challenges, we are proud once again to be opening our building and parking lot for communal prayer during this most special and meaningful time of year. 

Our hopes for our shul and our community, our vision of growth and expansion, depend on you and your response to our appeal. The Kol Nidrei appeal is the foundation for all we do, from minyan to education to sustaining and growing our youth program and to maintaining and upgrading our facilities. In addition, this year, as we did last year, we have erected a tent in the parking lot so that we can accommodate the many families who have expressed their interest in joining us for davening. 

The Aseret Yimei Teshuva are a time for introspection, to make amends, and for tzedakah.  The shul's Kol Nidre appeal accounts for nearly one-third of our ever-growing operating budget, and our needs are many.  With the added costs of keeping our services COVID-safe, we ask that, if possible, you give at least $1000. The shul’s expenses in connection with conducting high holiday services was greater this year, and there are many in the community who may not be in position to give as generously as they otherwise might like. But no matter the amount you give, every dollar will allow us to continue to enhance our shul, fund our educational, social, and youth programming, and ensure our long-term sustainability so we can continue to be a focal point for Jewish life in the greater Stamford area.

Please take a moment and reply now with your generous Kol Nidrei pledge, with donation options listed below.

Thank you very much for your continued support of the Young Israel. On behalf of the YIS Board of Directors, I wish you and your family a year of health, prosperity, peace, joy, and fulfillment.

Shanah Tovah U'metukah & G'mar Chatima Tova,
