Synagogue Programs

Young Israel of Northridge offers a daily morning and evening minyon, a religious school, an adult education program and a sisterhood. A mikva, summer camp, and a nursery school are in the planning stage. The synagogue has a campus outreach program, Chizuk, at California State University Northridge, and sponsors Shabbatonin and provides Shabbat hospitality for college students.

The synagogue has a Summer Seed Program in which groups of yeshiva students set up a Bet Midrash at the synagogue and learn with members of the congregation.

An eruv has been established in the north central San Fernando Valley; it encompasses the region enclosed by the Wilbur Wash on the West, the 118 freeway to the North, Bull Creek to the East and the Southern Pacific Railroad tracks to the South. Young Israel of Northridge was a leader in this effort.
