We need your help to volunteer to pick up the platters on Thursdays and deliver them to the Shul. Please sign up at www.tinyurl.com/yiebfruit and then arrange a time with Michele Falk 732.485.2194 to bring the platters to the Shul kitchen. Please save your receipts, as you will be reimbursed for your expenses via Shul Cloud. Contact Simi Fogel at 718-987-5209 with any questions. Sincerely, YIEB Healthee Committee ___________________________________________ SHUL DECORUM REMINDER At YIEB we encourage talking to everyone: HASHEM during Davening. FRIENDS during Kiddush. --------------------------------------------------------------------------------- January 3 - 9, 2014 RELIGIOUS COMMITTEE UPDATE The religious committee continues to meet on a monthly basis in order to discuss and improve all religious activity taking place at YIEB. Please see the attached document to find out more about the religious committee. As always, if you have any questions, suggestions or concerns, please feel free to speak to any member of our committee. DECORUM Ensuring appropriate decorum in our sanctuary remains a high priority. We will be implementing a number of changes over the next few weeks in order to improve decorum. We ask for everyone's assistance by taking all conversations outside the sanctuary! HONORS FORM We have updated the honors form that is used at a Bar/Bat Mitzvah or Aufruf. It can be found in the Member Area/Guidelines section on the YIEB website. YIEB FUNERAL IN SHUL POLICY Usually, the mitzvah of delivering Hespedim (eulogies) takes place in a funeral home or by the graveside. In the words of Rabbi Maurice Lamm (The Jewish Way in Death and Mourning, page 39), “the holding of funeral services within the precincts of the synagogue sanctuary is very rare.” This is because, in general, a Beit Knesset (a shul) is not the appropriate place for a funeral to take place. However, in our particular community, our local funeral homes are limited in their capacity to hold large gatherings. In the event that (G-d forbid) a funeral of either a YIEB member or someone for whom a YIEB member is sitting shiva must take place in our community, and the local funeral home cannot accommodate the number of people reasonably expected, then the funeral may take place in the sanctuary at YIEB. However, the aron (casket) can never enter the building. ALIYOT FOR HUSBANDS OF WOMEN OBSERVING YAHRTZEIT While we recognize, respect and are sensitive to all yahrzeit observances, from a halachic perspective, husbands of women observing yahrzeits are not chiyuvim. Since the 9:00 AM Shabbat morning minyan must provide aliyot for many other reasons, e.g. smachot, guests, chiyuvim, and the regular rotation of aliyot for all members, an attempt will be made to accommodate requests by husbands of women observing yahrzeit at other minyanim. These include the hashkama minyan, teen minyan, Shabbat Mincha, and the Monday and Thursday morning minyanim. To best prepare, the gabbaim should be contacted in advance. ___________________________________ MARK YOUR CALENDAR NORPAC MISSION to WASHINGTON Wednesday, Apr. 30, 2014 _________________________________________
  • 2. CHESED PROJECTS KIDS OF COURAGE- David Goldrich running marathon for Tzedaka. Please help if you can. Dear YIEB families, I hope everyone reading this is staying warm & well. On January 19th, I will be running a marathon in the Bahamas to raise money for a cause that is very important to me; Kids of Courage. What is Kids of Courage? This unbelievable organization is a groundbreaking, all-volunteer nonprofit that provides support to sick Jewish children and their families, 365 days a year. Kids of Courage is committed to helping critically ill children disconnect from their daily struggles and to giving them the opportunity to feel like healthy children. With the help of an unbelievable team of doctors, nurses, and counselors, the kids travel and bond together as they experience trips of a lifetime. If you would like to help us reach our goal, there are 3 ways to donate: By credit card: http://raceforcourage.org/race/670-taliadennis/profile By check: Kids of Courage, 445 Central Avenue, Suite 216, Cedarhurst, NY 11516 (Memo: Dennis family & Goldrich run) By phone: 516.612.8844 Thank you for your support of this effort & I look forward to seeing you at YIEB. Regards, David Goldrich ********** I have spent the last two summers in Camp HASC (Hebrew Academy for Special Children). In case you are not familiar, Camp HASC is a special needs camp, where over 350 campers, children and adults, with various kinds of physical and mental disabilities spend their summer. What these two summers have done for me is something that nothing else in the world could have for me. I have grown up there, matured there, and learned to appreciate the tiniest things in life there. Every step I take, every sound and word I speak, every time I move my hands, every time I am able to sit and eat and taste whatever I would like, and every time I think for myself is now viewed as such an unbelievable miracle. I went from being someone who went through the motions of life to someone who picks up on all the little, seemingly unimportant things that we take for granted but really shouldn't. It really is a true Beracha to work a single day in Camp HASC....two summers is something that is just mind blowing. I still speak to three of my campers on a consistent basis, phone calls I look forward to having every day. That is why, this February, I will IY"H be running in the Ft. Lauderdale half marathon with Team HASC. Please read through the little blurb on my page, and watch the two embedded videos. Do not just take my word about the absolute magic that Camp HASC has in its gates, watch these videos and see it for yourself. Camp HASC needs your help to be able to give people with disabilities a place to be able to call their summer home. Without your help, the magic cannot be sustained. Please consider sponsoring me as I raise money to help make a life a little better for these incredibly special and unique individuals. I thank you in advance for helping me and the place I now call my summer home. The Campers are very appreciative for it, as are the thousands of holy Neshamot that will IY"H work there in the future. Here is the link: http://www.hasc.net/marathon/mtmypage.php?kwoAdvocateId=6PDJFH0 Thank you very much, Jonathan Gardner ********** As part of my Bar Mitzvah, I will be performing a service project by volunteering to raise money for a wonderful organization, the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia (CHOP). Please read my story at http://giving.chop.edu/goto/JPaley to learn about CHOP, and please consider contributing to this cause. Please call Leon Paley at 732.390.6623 if you have any questions. Thanks for your help! Joel Paley ********** I will be running in the Jerusalem Marathon with Team Yachad on March 21st. Yachad is all about inclusion and this run is to raise sponsorship money to benefit individuals with disabilities. I will B"H be participating in the 10K run alongside a Yachad member. Any sponsors would be greatly appreciated (tell your friends as well!) Much thanks from Israel! Adina Grayman ********** In a few weeks, I will be in Israel, B"H. I will be visiting with girls in Lev LaLev Orphanage in Natanya. I am bringing each girl that is around my age, 11 years old, a Rainbow Loom and teaching them different bracelet designs. If possible, I will also like to add to the girls' Simcha by donating money to the orphanage. I will be collecting donations for this special orphanage. Please make checks payable to Lev LaLev Orphanage and mail to me at 15 Brookside Court, East Brunswick, NJ 08816. Thank you, Hannah Grayman ___________________________________________ KIDDUSH!
