Dear Yavneh community,

posted Jun 21, 2011, 7:26 PM by Eli Cohen
Five years ago, we founded a partnership minyan, creating from nothing a unique community in which people of all levels of observance participate in a meaningful, halakhic service led by both women and men. We are the only minyan of this kind on the Upper East Side.

Today, we are at a threshold.  We have held services continuously once a month since 2006 and Rabbi Jeffrey Fox, Rosh Yeshivah of Yeshivat Maharat, is serving as scholar-in-residence.  We have introduced new programming, including in‑home learning with Rabbi Rox and our first Friday night service, which took place on March 11 and was an enormous success.  We have even bigger plans for next year, including the possibility of more extensive childcare and scholars-in-residence programs.

Yavneh’s growth and continuation is not possible without your generous financial support.  Help us take Yavneh to the next level by sending us your tax-deductible contribution today.  Because we are a small organization, your gift will make a tangible impact. One hundred percent of your contribution will go to the expenses of running our service.  By helping sustain us financially, you help ensure Yavneh's continued growth and success.
