YIWH Committees

Get Involved! YIWH Committee System

The Young Israel of West Hempstead strongly encourages active participation by its members in all aspects of the shul ranging from chesed to programming. We have a long tradition of volunteering through our committee system where members are invited to join committees that allow them to contribute at any level of commitment they choose.

For more information on how to get involved contact one our committee chairs directly or contact the President or one of our officers and we will work to find a committee that suits your interests.
