  2. 2. YIEB RELIGIOUS COMMITTEE As we approach Rosh Hashana, the start of a fresh new year, the YIEB Religious committee felt this to be an appropriate time to reconnect with our Kahal and to establish improved communication going forward. The purpose of the committee, which now meets monthly, is to ensure that all aspects of our Shul’s religious activities are to the satisfaction of our congregants and in accordance with accepted Halachik practice. (As the joke goes, 10 Jews in a room equals 11 opinions of accepted Halacha – hence, all final decisions on practice rest with Rabbi Weinstein.) We welcome and strongly encourage Shul members, both men and women, to come to a committee member of their choosing with any ‘religious related’ suggestions, concerns, or issues. If you prefer to communicate via e-mail, all committee member e-mail addresses are located on the YIEB website or you can e-mail gabbai@yieb.org.. The committee members are: Mark Koslowe (Chairman) Howie Rosenblum Paul Goldman Joel Gordon Arel Weisberg Mendy Bohm Mike Gardner Moving forward, the committee will communicate to the Shul via e-mail, newsletter, etc. various policies and resolutions that we’ve put into place. While not everyone may agree with the resolutions (see joke above), please be assured that the decisions made were with the best interests in mind for our Shul and our continued spiritual growth. Should anyone like to discuss any of these matters, please feel free to contact any of the above listed committee members. Wishing everyone a K’siva V’chasima Tova!!
