The Young Israel of Houston is an Orthodox synagogue located in the heart of South West Houston, Texas. We have been a community institution providing minyamin, shiurim and exciting programming for over 25 years. Our kehilla is made up of over 100 young vibrant families as well as many founders of our Jewish community. Rabbi Yehoshua Wender has been our Mora DeAsrah since our inception in 1983. The Rav received his Smicha from Yeshiva Chovetz Chaim and has been a leader for the shul and the community.
Our community is a warm and welcoming one made up of Jewish families from all over the world. The Young Israel and Houston community is truly unique in its diversity of members, while at the same time having such a strong sense of community. We pride ourselves on this warmth, our commitment to Torah values and our continues growth.
*This current site was launched in February 2011. However, the shul and community feel a strong sense of Hakaros Hatov to Rivkey Nimchinsky for being the designer and maintainer of the Young Israel site we had for the twelve years prior to this new site.
