Dear Friend of the Y,
You know the Y – we are northern Manhattan’s premier community center where:
The Y is proud to partner with the Manhattan Smoke-Free Coalition to bring much needed regulation to the tobacco industry, and education to our neighbors. Tobacco has been a serious problem in our community for too long, and we have seen how these dangers have penetrated into the local youth.
In the spirit of the holiday season, The Y was honored to host UJA-Federation and Catholic Charities' Feeding our Neighbors: An Interfaith Response. Close to a hundred volunteers from all over New York swarmed the Y to fill food packages to be distributed to food pantries and local Washington Heights Seniors.
Thank you to all who came out to our Thanksgivukah event this week! We had a large crowd come celebrate with us and Inwood Jews the holidays of Chanukah and Thanksgiving.
Our Partners in Caring "Survivor Interview Series" was a huge success. Thank you to all those who came to the special 75th Anniversary of Kristallnacht -the Night of Broken Glass services at the Hebrew Tabernacle to honor our community members who have experienced the terrible darkness of the Holocaust.

In conjunction with our "Partners in Caring" program funded by the UJA-Federation of New York, the Y will feature interviews from six local survivors to better understand each individual's story.
