New York Yachad
In Conversation with Yachad

Calling all NY Advisors:

Yachad is hosting a dinner and conversation for advisors to spend time with some of our executive team, and you are invited! We want to offer our Advisor Community an opportunity to sit down and really talk about what’s going on in Yachad, share some of what the leadership team is thinking, and most importantly, hear what you have to say.

Tuesday, February 12th 6:15 PM

Talia’s Steakhouse

668 Amsterdam Ave (at 93rd St on the Upper West Side) in NYC

Dinner will be great, and free, but space is limited, so an RSVP is a must! Please email GlicksmanY@ou.org to RSVP.

Looking forward to hearing from you!
