Our Community

Welcome to Young Israel of Queens Valley, a vibrant Orthodox Jewish community offering a rich array of opportunities for involvement at every stage of life. Whether it's our daily minyanim and stimulating shiurim, our engaging evening activities, or our special events and social initiatives, there's a place for you here.

We are privileged to be made up of committed, involved, and passionate membership, and the strength of our community relies on our members’ ongoing participation. Through membership to YIQV, congregants demonstrate their commitment to our community, to our shared values, and to the future of Torah Judaism.


In order to best meet the needs of our community, we limit our membership to 500 households. To become a member today, sign up below.

We encourage and welcome the larger community to connect with us as well. When possible, our programming is open to all and we invite you to explore our calendar and experience the YIQV community for yourself. Interested in receiving emails from YIQV?
