  • 2. PLAYGOUND NEWS "We are excited to announce the expansion of the playground area! SAFETY NOTE: Parents - please make certain that children do not play in the playground area during the construction. This is especially important over Shabbat, when children often play unsupervised outside during davening. Thank you for your help in ensuring a safe environment for our children!" ----------------------------------------------------------- UPDATE FROM THE RELIGIOUS COMMITTEE We take the opportunity to remind the membership that the Shul’s Minhag is that anyone Davening for the Amud, receiving a Kibbud (Aliyah, Hagbah, Glilah, Psicha etc) or standing at the Shulchan in a Gabbai capacity, is required to either wear a suit jacket or sports coat, or to wear a Talis. Additionally, hopefully you have noticed that we have placed ‘silence your cell phone’ reminder signs at the entry points to the Beis Medrash and the main sanctuary. If your cell phone does disturb Davening, a Gabbai will respectfully remind you to turn it off. Please be respectful of everyone’s right to Daven without interruption. We thank you in advance for your cooperation. As a reminder, the religious committee meets on a monthly basis and constantly strives to improve religious services offered by YIEB to its membership. We encourage you to contact any of us with any suggestions or concerns. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- YIEB Sisterhood, in conjunction with the Center for Early Learning @YIEB Presents: Two After School Activities beginning in October!

During the Shabbaton, community boys become “buddies” to the Chai Lifeline kids. It will include an inspirational community-wide Seudah Shlishit at Ohr Torah. This Shabbaton has been recognized twice internationally as one of the best Shabbatons of the year. It provides the opportunity for kids in a very difficult situation to forget their troubles for a weekend and enjoy themselves with old friends and new “buddies.” It also provides their families with much-needed respite. In past years, the Shabbaton was subsidized by a small number of individuals. Unfortunately, they no longer have access to those funds, and must reach out to the community at large. We need to raise another $7,000 to cover the Shabbaton. Please sponsor or contribute today (all contributions will be displayed on the recognition card): $1,000 Sponsor Shabbat lunch $ 500 Sponsor Seudah Shlishit $ 360 Sponsor a child for the weekend $ 180 Contributor Checks should be made out to “Chai Lifeline” and mailed to David Waizer, 53 North 7th Avenue, Highland Park, NJ 08904. Teens from Highland Park/Edison who would like to volunteer should contact Barbara Edery at barbaraedery@gmail.com This event qualifies for Chesed hours and letters can be provided upon request. _________________________________________ The FRISCH SCHOOL, located in Paramus, N.J., invites all 8th graders and their parents to our Open House on Sunday, November 10th at 9:15 AM.
