Friendship Courtyard Campaign

The Friendship Courtyard Campaign

Building a Stronger Y

We are excited to announce the launch of a new project–Riverdale Y Friendship Courtyard –a way for people of all generations to create a meaningful, long-lasting tribute at Riverdale Y in support of all the work we do for the local community.

In every service we provide, Riverdale Y enriches lives by cultivating universally-shared values central to Jewish life through educational, cultural, wellness and service programs for all.

Our Friendship Courtyard will serve as a physical manifestation of these core values for which the Y stands:

  • We build and strengthen community

  • We create a space of belonging, where everyone feels respected and appreciated for who they are

  • We have a responsibility to care for one another, in our local community and in our world

  • We nurture our minds, bodies and souls

  • We are committed to lifelong learning and growth

The Walkway of Friendship

A key part of the courtyard will be a new brick walkway featuring the names of all the friends of the campaign. By purchasing a personalized, laser-engraved brick for yourself, your family, or your business, you help create a long-lasting legacy that powers, and pays tribute to, the work we do. Join us as we ennoble our campus.
