Welcome To 92nd Street Y’s New Fall Season

Sol Adler, Executive Director, 92nd Street Y

Welcome to 92nd Street Y’s new fall season.

As always, this time of year generates excitement and anticipation. This fall, we are especially energized by 92nd Street Y’s new look, designed to take us into the future and communicate to people around the world what you already know: that 92Y is “An Open Door to Extraordinary Worlds.” Today, we also have wide open “virtual doors” so that people can experience 92Y wherever they are, whether it’s through our new website or our blog, on Facebook or Twitter, or on YouTube, iTunesU, or Amazon.

Our mission, of course, remains the same: to enrich lives, create community and elevate humanity, all through the lens of our Jewish values, such as learning and self-improvement, family, the joy of life and giving back to the community. To achieve that mission, we offer an extraordinary breadth and depth of programming in the arts, education, health and wellness, and Jewish life to people of all ages, faiths, races, backgrounds and perspectives.

As a member of this very special community of communities, I am humbled and inspired by the many remarkable personal and communal journeys I have witnessed here at 92Y:

… By the world-class artists, entertainers, writers, thinkers and statesmen who grace our stage night after night.

… By the radiant faces of public school children listening to classical, jazz or world music at 92Y’s outreach concerts.

... By the intrepid NGO workers from Afghanistan to Zimbabwe who soak up three weeks of intensive nonprofit management and leadership training at 92Y each year.

… By the ebullient and talented young dancers, musicians and artists in our scholarship programs and studios.

… And by the dedication and bravery of people with special needs who learn, dance and grow with us in programs designed to make not only their needs, but their humanity, special.

This fall also marks the 10th anniversary of September 11. As New Yorkers—and people around the world—mark this anniversary, we continue to have faith that the collective human spirit can find peace and inspiration in good times and bad. And we hope that those who walk through 92Y’s open doors can find whatever it is they are looking for that will raise their spirits and enrich their lives!

We look forward to seeing you at 92Y.

Sol Adler
Executive Director
