CONGREGATIONAL MEETING Dear YIEB Member, The Mikvah board has been working tirelessly over the last year and a half in figuring out how to build a Kalim Mikvah on our property. Simply put, it’s not easy. Quite the opposite, given the issues with the wetlands, township, construction, etc. the best option we currently have to build a Kalim Mikvah would cost a minimum of $75,000. Knowing the situation that YIEB finds itself in, Torah Links graciously offered to house the YIEB Kalim Mikvah in their new building. In order to partner together in that initiative, YIEB would give $30,000 and Torah Links would cover the rest of the building costs and maintenance costs. Partnering together in this initiative could not only benefit the YIEB community with a Kalim Mikvah but could show how YIEB and Torah Links working together could benefit the entire Jewish community. I thank Torah Links for offering us this extremely generous proposal. Please join us at the Congregational Meeting on April 7th at 8 PM to find out more information and vote on the motion that the YIEB Board passed. The text of the entire motion was sent out to the congregation via email. Thank you for your support, Sharon Weinstein _________________________________________ YIEB BOARD NOMINATIONS Nominations are now being accepted for the Shul Board for the 2014/2015 year that begins July 1st.

Despite their lengthy and arduous physical training, scant attention is paid to their psychological preparedness to cope with the aftermath of traumatic experiences they may have had: Many witnessed terrible sights, made split- second life and death decisions, or expe rienced the loss of a comrade.After three or more years spent in a strict military framework, many feel overwhelmed by the decisions and demands of civilian life. They may develop symptoms ranging from difficulties with concentration to sleep and memory disorders. Other manifestations include substance abuse, anger, and symptoms which can lead to full-blown Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD). Peace of Mind (http://www.peaceofmindictp.com/index.html) reunites soldiers who served together.Peace of Mind (POM) offers them the admiration and respect of American Jewish communities while providing them with time in Israel and in American host communities in which they can receive treatment for the grief, bereavement, and guilt that resulted from their experience in IDF service.For Highland Park/Edison to become a POM host community we must raise the funds to underwrite the cost of the treatment program. To date, over half of the necessary funds have been collected to bring young veterans and their Israeli psychologists to our community November 9 - 16, 2014.During the time that they are here, the veterans will work with their psychologists in the mornings and spend the afternoons doing the things that twenty-somethings do:sightsee and experience New York and New Jersey.The time that we spend with these soldiers, whether in our homes or in special evening programs, is a vital part of their healing program.To learn more about the Peace of Mind Program, please join us at the home of Marcia and Barry Levinson (419 Becker Street, Highland Park) on March 31st at 8 PM. Please show your support and Hakarat Hatov to soldiers who have risked their lives for our homeland and for our friends and families living in Israel. RSVP to Barbara Strassman (barbara.strassman@gmail.com or 732/545-3931). If you are unable to attend this meeting but would like to support the program, please send donations made out to American Friends of Herzog Hospital c/o Rosanne Koenigson at 221 Washington Ave. Edison, NJ 08817. ______________________________________________ CHOL HAMOED PESACH SESAME STREET LIVE: The PTA of the Chai Early Childhood Center in East Brunswick's annual fundraiser: Order your tickets for "Sesame Live" at the State Theater in New Brunswick.
