FRIENDS during Kiddush. RABBI’S CORNER Shabbat, Parshat Ki Tisa Dear Young Israel Families, Back in the times of the Talmud Bavli, there was a phenomenon called “Yarchay Kallah.” During the months of Adar and Elul in which Rabbis and teachers would gather in the major Yeshivot to learn and prepare for the upcoming chagim. Each year, as part of continuing education for Rabbinic Alumni, Yeshiva University provides for us the opportunity to partake in a Yarchay Kallah. This year’s Yarchay Kallah will take place this coming week. At the conference, which is attended by pulpit Rabbis around the country, we have the opportunity to continue learning from our Rebbeim and teachers while also working on other rabbinic skills to utilize “in the field.” Most of all, it’s an opportunity to re-energize and gain Chizzuk from our role models and Chaverim. This year, we have the additional advantage that the conference will take place in Miami Beach, FL. I look forward to sharing with you about my experiences when I return and you have my word that I will try and bring back some Florida weather! Best wishes for a Shabbat Shalom, Rabbi Jay Weinstein ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------CHINUCH/ADULT EDUCATION Guidelines for Lifecycle events can be downloaded from our website www.yieb.org under the dropdown menu; Member Area/Guidelines.(logged-in members only).

Now that Mincha/Maariv during the week is very early, we need everyone's help to ensure we have a Minyan. Thank you. ___________________________________________ LATE MAARIV Dear YIEB Members, As we are in the winter months and our regular Mincha/MaarivMinyan is early in the day, many people are not able to attend. So, we provide a "late Maariv" Minyan Monday through Thursday at 9:30 PM (Please note we are no longer having a late Maariv on Sunday night). A number of members of our community saying Kaddish rely on this Minyan. Unfortunately, over the past number of weeks, the late MaarivMinyan has not had adequate participation. In order for us to continue this Minyan, we are looking for your support by signing up and committing to one night during the week. The Minyan will run through Thursday Night, March 13th (less than 2 months to go!).

The purpose of the meeting will be for members to vote on the hiring of a contractor to completely renovate the YIEB Mikvah. The YIEB Board of Directors met on Thursday February 6th and passed the resolution below. It is now time for the congregation to vote on this motion. This vote is constitutionally required because the proposed expenditure is in excess of $10,000. YIEB Board of Directors passed the following motion: 1. That the Board approve the Mikvah renovation project pending completion of a contract acceptable to the officers of the shul and its legal counsel and 2. That the Board authorize the Mikvah Board to spend up to $180,000 from Mikvah funds (including funds raised from the Mikvah Campaign) on the Mikvah renovation project, to be overseen by an individual designated by the officers of the shul; and 3. That the Board recommends that the Mikvah renovation project be sent to the membership for congregational approval. Enclosed please find 3 attachments: 1. Construction contract for the renovation of the YIEB Mikvah 2. Plans for the renovation of the YIEB Mikvah 3. Evidence of liability insurance for the proposed contractor As you may recall, the YIEB Mikvah conducted a successful capital campaign in 2013. Between the money the Mikvah campaign raised in the capital campaign and the money it already had in its bank account, 100% of the funds for the Mikvah renovation presently sit in the Mikvah’s bank account. While the YIEB Mikvah has historically operated as a separate entity, lay leadership has taken the position that YIEB Board and congregational approval are needed to implement the construction plans for the following reasons: 1. While the Mikvah has historically operated independently, it is not truly a separate legal entity from YIEB and operates under the auspices and tax ID# of YIEB itself. 2. The renovation of the Mikvah involves expenditures well in excess of YIEB's Board of Directors’ constitutional ability to approve (currently $10,000). The process here will be for the YIEB Board to approve (which it did on February 6th) and then for the congregation to approve as well......just as we did with the roof expenditure. 3. The renovation of the Mikvah involves serious demolition and construction inside our building and while we are excited to accomplish this renovation, these are serious matters that should involve the approval of the board and congregation at large. While a presentation will take place at the congregational meeting and I am enclosing the attachments herein, please do not think that in a matter of a few minutes you or I can be brought up to full speed with as much detail as the individuals who have worked for the past ten months on this project day and night. I would suggest that if a member has serious and detailed questions regarding this project that they contact Sharon Weinstein (732-354-5913), Miltie Goldman (732715-6848) or me. The contracts enclosed have been reviewed by Aaron Shmulewitz, the Shul’s legal counsel, and he will continue to make any minor changes as he sees fit as we move forward. If you have any questions regarding the contract itself, please reach out to Aaron Shmulewitz at 732-238-5432. Milttie Goldman and his renovation committee and Sharon Weinstein and her Mikvah committee have approved the plans above for submission to the township. In conjunction with the architect and contractor, Miltie and Sharon will follow the plans through the process and work with the paid professionals to tweak the plans as needed. I hope that you are as excited as I am to begin the process of renovating the YIEB Mikvah. However, let me caution everyone that when doing
    • construction, there will be starts and stops, delays, tweaks to the plans, etc. - it is just the nature of construction and dealing with townships and municipalities. The good news is that we have a great team, passionately dedicated to bringing this renovation project to fruition. I want to thank Miltie Goldman and Sharon Weinstein for putting their personal lives on hold and dedicating so much time to our Mikvah project. If you are unable to attend this meeting, but still wish to vote, please reach out to Batsheva Goldman (732-238-6505) prior to Tuesday February 25th for her to review with you the procedure necessary for a proxy to vote on your behalf. Proxies will be acceptable until Wednesday February 26th at 8 PM. Thank you, Aron J. Adams President, Young Israel of East Brunswick ___________________________________________ Todah Rabah!
