Biographical/Historical Note: Young Israel of Toco Hills was established in 1994 as part of the National Council of Young Israel (NCYI), a synagogue-based Orthodox organization founded in 1912. NCYI promotes the Orthodox involvement of modern American Jews and aims to make Orthodox Judaism more relevant to young American Jews. Young Israel of Toco Hills focuses on three central values: robust, proactive involvement in the secular world, the religious significance of the State of Israel, and the pursuit of spiritual growth of the congregation as manifested by mitzvot and the study of Torah. Rabbi Michael J. Broyde was the first Rabbi of Young Israel Toco Hills. In 2009, Young Israel Toco Hills selected a new Rabbi, Rabbi Adam Starr from the Hebrew Institute of Riverdale, NY, and Rabbi Starr was installed in 2009. In 2009, Young Israel Toco Hills started the process of building a new Synagogue, which opened in 2014. Since its foundation, Young Israel Toco Hills has welcomed anyone interested in exploring the richness and meaningful spirituality associated with modern Orthodoxy and maintain celebrated partnerships with the broader Atlanta Jewish community.

Scope and Content:  Of special interest in this collection are the architectural committee plans, permits, and applications for the construction of a new synagogue for Young Israel Toco Hills, the writings of Rabbi Michael J. Broyde, and information about the National Council of Young Israel controversy in 2007. The researcher will also find numerous statements attempting to define the concept of modern orthodoxy in relation to subjects such as women and prayer, orthodox education, and religious Zionism.
