This is an important and complex discussion; it is integral to the process that we get the participation and opinion of each and every YIEB member. It is essential for all of us to understand and identify what needs exist today and what we anticipate our needs will be in the future, prioritize those needs, and map out the actions necessary to move forward together to satisfy those needs. In order to engage in conversation with each of you, over the next few months we will be holding a series of parlor meetings which will allow us to have these detailed discussions. You, the membership, will have the opportunity to hear from the YIEB leadership on all aspects that we are exploring involving expansion and renovation of the shul. More importantly, it will give you the opportunity to share your thoughts, ideas and suggestions. Meeting participation will be kept to a maximum of twenty five people per meeting to facilitate meaningful discussions. This is an important time for our shul. We strongly urge each and every one of our members to participate! Please click here to sign up for one of the meeting dates. 4xuCzlAPF1TmW- J228l3DtZh_X6Y2MXQmbvRvIk/edit#gid=0 If none of these dates work for you, please email and we will try our best to accommodate you on another date.

  4. 4. ~Young Israel of East Brunswick Israel Advocacy Committee~ ~Emergency Action Appeal~ July 10, 2014 Dear YIEB Members, Israel has never known a moment’s peace in its history- its civilians are being bombarded again with terrorist missiles launched from Gaza. As Israel responds to current terrorist groups’ missile attacks, our hearts are with our brothers and sisters in harm’s way. Here’s how we in East Brunswick can support Israel and its people: • Yashar Lachayal’s Ari & Sari Horowitz Memorial Fund - Targeted, Direct Tzedakah: Donate by direct link to the Fund at . This Fund is named in memory of our dear friends and YIEB members, Sari & Ari Horowitz z”l, who had a special place in their hearts for helping to ease the burden of the brave IDF soldiers. YIEB has developed a special relationship with Yashar Lachayal, whose mission is to “bring soldiers in the IDF what they need, when they need it”. The organization provides for basic needs of the Chayalim who are defending Israel with their own lives. Due to Yashar Lachayal’s founders’ generosity, 100% of donations are used to purchase & distribute these greatly needed supplies, rather than being used to defray administrative overhead costs. The Fund was established last summer specifically to provide food, clothing, and other necessities to needy IDF soldiers who come from impoverished family circumstances. The Fund will now focus its aid for the soldiers on their most immediate needs due to current combat conditions. Please donate online in Ari & Sari’s memory so brave IDF soldiers may receive the benefit of your donation without delay while they protect Israel. • Political Action: Contact your US Congressional Representatives and Senators and urge them to stand with Israel by making a public statement of support for Operation Protective Edge and Israel’s right to defend itself. Go to the OU’s action page at: . • Prayer for the IDF: Recite the Tefilah for the Members of the Israel Defense Forces (text in both Hebrew & English). • Recite Tehillim: (Worldwide continuous) or http://www.mechon- (text in both Hebrew & English). • Pair with a Combat Soldier: Let us devote ourselves to Torah learning, Tefillah, and performance of Mitzvot and good deeds in the soldiers’ merit. Sign up, free, at to pair with an active-duty IDF combat soldier. Help unify and connect all of Am Yisrael and increase each soldier’s spiritual merit and protection. • Hasbara: Spread truth about terrorist groups’ aggression against Israel. Share facts concerning the situation in Israel with friends & colleagues to combat the prevalent misinformation in the media. Excellent websites include: ; ; . May Hashem protect Israel, her soldiers, and citizens during this difficult, dangerous round of Arab attacks and defensive Israeli actions. Let us stand united & provide much needed support to our Israeli family. Sincerely, Judy Goldrich & Cheryl Shmulewitz Rabbi Jay Weinstein Co-Chairs, YIEB Israel Advocacy Committee Young Israel of East Brunswick
