The YINW Youth Department features weekly Shabbat groups for children from pre-school age through Bar or Bat Mitzvah. Our Shabbat morning program runs from 10:00 AM until approximately 11:30 PM.  The program includes many fun activities and games.  For all children from ages 9 through 12, it also includes Junior Congregation where our our youth learn the תפילה in a comfortable, educational environment.  We also offer a youth program during our 8:00 AM Shabbat Minyan for pre-school age children.

Some of our annual activities include: Sukkah Decoration Making, Roller skating, Chanukah Party, Islanders Games, Ping Pong Tournament, Shavuos Learning Program, Friday Night Oneg, Chom Homoed Trips, Sukkah Hop, Movie Nights, Purim Party and many other events.
