IYIM is the Israel branch of a 100 year old Orthodox Synagogue umbrella group that has always been proudly Zionistic.
The Israel branch is involved in its 55 branches from Beersheva and Sderot in the South through to Karmiel and Hispin in the North, in social welfare activities with Israel's poor, programming with the IDF Rabbinate, with English speaking olim of various ages and more.
IYIM strives to assist those sectors of the Israeli population most in need, many that do not make the news headlines. These include the deaf and hearing impaired, Agunot and divorce refusal victims (both male and female), teens-at-risk and the young Ethiopian community of Sderot.
IYIM strives to enhance Jewish Peoplehood by aiming to strengthen connections between our members in Israel and their counterparts in Young Israel synagogues spread throughout North America, through a legacy of support and enhancement of the Jewish people throughout Israel.
