Weare looking for volunteers to purchase fruits andvegetables before Shabbat and to cut up fruitsand vegetables on Shabbat morning.If you are interested please email Simi Fogel atsusansemel@gmail.com--------------------------------------------------------------------------------Q & A Update:Yeshiva University Pre-Med InternshipInterns Arriving at YIEB for June 1stShabbatThe Yeshiva University (YU) & Stern College Pre-Med/Pre-Dental Interns will move into ourcommunity immediately prior to Shabbat ofJune 1st, for a period of 3 weeks. Please greetthem & make them feel welcome in ourmidst. To ensure that our YIEB communityunderstands the nature of the program, hereare a few Q & As to explain the history,structure and function of the program:Q: How did the Shul develop this program withYU?A: YUs Center for the Jewish Future (CJF) hasrun similar undergraduate programs in severalcareer fields in various "out of towncommunities" such as Kansas City, Boston,Atlanta, South Bend IN, and Houston over thepast several years. The YU programs aredesigned to help put these Jewish communitylocations "on the map" through extensivecoordination & publicity throughout YeshivaUniversitys network. Torah studyresponsibilities in the community are a majorcomponent of these programs. While at a YULeadership Conference last summer, wesaw the prior success of YUs CJF Internshipprograms in business, manufacturing, Jewishcommunal work, and health fields, so as part ofour overall recruitment program, YIEBapproached YUs CJF with a request to create,administer & develop a new internship programfor the first time ever in East Brunswick, withthe YIEB community acting as the host site. YUagreed.Q: How much money did YIEB spend on thisprogram?A: NOT A SINGLE DOLLAR of YIEB operatingbudget funds is being spent on this program. Inkeeping with the original proposal presented tothe YIEB Board of Directors, the program is100% budget-neutral to the Shul. For example,the glossy full-color brochures youve seen thatdescribe the YU program were paid for,prepared, & printed by YUs CJF, not YIEB.Q: Other than shadowing several of YIEBshealth professionals in office & hospital, whatdo the Interns do with all their "free time" inEB?A: The Interns will have VERY LITTLE "freetime" in EB. Each Intern is devoted to workingon behalf of the Shul membership to enrich ourTorah learning environmentPART 2 of the Interns day begins at 6PM whenthey return each day to YIEB for a continuedrole in our Shul. Each weeknight, they haveassignments. For example, Monday nights theyare preparing material & learning in Chevrutawith Adults (Men & Women) at YIEB; Tuesdaynights, they are learning with the High SchoolTeens of YIEB; Wednesday nights, they will beattending medical career-related seminarswhich are open to the entire Shul; one Thursdaynight we anticipate they will tech/learn inChevruta at YIEB with Rutgers JewishExperience students, as well as YIEB collegestudents; on Shabbat they will deliver DivreiTorah and Shabbat Afternoon Shiurim (some forWomen, some for Men & Women) and workwith the YIEB Shabbat Youth Program; and theywill be part of daily Minyan and give DivreiHalacha in Shul each day. So as you can see,this program is as much about enhancing ourcommunitys Torah learning as it is aboutunderstanding the field of Medicine.Q: How were the interns selected?A: There were approximately 40 applicationsreceived by YU for the program from YU & Sternstudents. An application consisted of an essayand personal information demonstrating 1)excellent academic credentials, as well as 2)strong interest in pursuing a career in the healthfield and 3) demonstrated prior experience &dedication in learning and working with variousdemographic groups within Jewish communitiesto facilitate their teaching responsibilities atYIEB. A personal interview was conducted atCJF offices on 2 occasions by YU-CJFs RabbiElie Mischel, Rabbi Weinstein and JudyGoldrich, for each completed application. Finalselections were made based primarily on the 3criteria above. Most of the 40 candidatespresented excellent applications.Q: How will the Interns be hosted in ourcommunity?A: Several YIEB families are graciously housingthe students & providing their meals.Q: Are the Interns compensated for their workin our community?A: No, the Interns are unpaid volunteers in ourShul. They also do not receive any collegecredit for the medical shadowing or Torah-learning components of their group experience.Should you have any other questions notaddressed in this Q&A, please feel free tocontact Judy Goldrich or Rabbi Weinstein formore information. Thank you & we lookforward to a wonderful upcoming partnershipexperience._____________________________________PRIMARY ELECTION – JUNE 4thVoter Registration Deadline: May 14th.If you don’t vote, we won’t be heard.
