YIEB ANNUAL SHUL DINNER
Sunday, December 14th
More information to follow in the coming weeks.
Dear Fellow YIEB Members,
As you know, the leadership of our Shul is currently
exploring an expansion to the Young Israel of East
Brunswick building. 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.
If none of these dates work for you, please email
email@example.com and we will try our best to
accommodate you on another date.

Our new Youth Experience:
Shabbat! Program kicks off
on August 30th with new

and lots of excitement! This
summer the Shabbat program has been

Please note that beginning August 30th the
Shabbat groups are as follows:
Nerot: Ages 2 & 3, without a parent
Challot: Age 4 & kindergarten
Kosot Yayin: 1st & 2nd grades
Mini-Minyan: 3rd, 4th & 5th grades
Teen Minyan: post bar/bat mitzvah
We will also continue our popular Mommy & Me
We’ve made major changes to our tefillot program.
Davening for each group will be diverse, interactive
and focused on understanding the meaning of
each tefillah and building a relationship with
HaShem. We are excited to announce that Challot

Camp's all packed and away (until next summer!),
and our shul is once again calm during the
day. You'd never know that, just a few days ago,
kids were singing, cheering, dancing, swimming,
playing and having the summer of their lives...and
what an amazing summer it was!
Over the course of 8 weeks, Camp Keshet and TLC
saw 107 campers come and go. WOW! Camp was
a huge success, and it's time to say thank you to
all those who helped shape and maintain the
incredible program we had here at YIEB. Rachel
Adams did an amazing job heading our TLC
program. Between her creativity and high energy
level, our Teen Leadership through Chesed
program was inspiring, meaningful and of course,
fun! Having been recognized this summer in the
New Jersey Jewish News, this unique, innovative
program left quite the impression in Middlesex
County and among our Keshet family. This year
we partnered with Yachad to offer campers with all
abilities to be a part of the Camp Keshet
experience. Debbie Tune bridged the gap between
our Yachad Campers and Keshet/TLC campers in a
wonderful way. Her loving, caring nature along
with her "funner" side made this year a success
and put us on the map! Rabbi Weinstein helped
save the day when camp hit a pretty big bump in
the road. Spending several hours invested in
getting camp off the ground, and working closely
with our volunteer-based leadership, he helped
camp take shape into a year like no other - with
more campers than ever before!
A camp needs a strong group of people working
daily to keep it running smoothly. Five weeks
before camp started, Keshet found itself with a
challenge: we could not secure someone to run
camp after our director had to leave. Thanks to
our volunteer-based camp committee, Michele
Falk, Miltie Goldman, Allison Schechter and Mairov
Shron, camp not only opened - but was
phenomenal! These volunteers worked tirelessly
behind the scenes and in the camp all summer
long. Working on numbers, trips and anything
asked, Michele spent much of her free time
meeting and planning, orchestrating and
facilitating. She added so much value to Camp
Keshet's success. From running all the logistics of
permits and licenses to setting up the audio and
lighting for our drama performances, we know that
we can always count on Miltie. Mairov, serving as
the assistant director, wandered the halls of camp
some days and working behind the scenes on
others. Mairov took on billing, communicating with
parents and working out logistics to ensure that all
programs, trips and activities took place without a
hitch. And then there was Allison, stepping in as
our director. She lived and breathed camp all day
long, from greeting our campers in the morning to
seeing them off at 4PM - with everything in
between. She made sure our campers were
smiling and our staff members were
supported. Each day ran smoothly under her
watch. With all she did during the day, she still
found time after hours until late into the night
ensuring camp's continued success all season
long. Our community is fortunate to be the
beneficiaries of Allison's talents, warmth and
dedication. Special thanks to Josh Shron for
volunteering to produce the camp e-newsletter
throughout the season.
YIEB's camp committee took on the challenging
role 5 weeks before the start of camp. They gave
it their all and created the best summer
experience for our campers! Help us say "thank
you" to our volunteers and staff when you see
them around...they made Keshet a blockbuster
summer this year. Toda Raba!!

TZITZIS FOR CHAYALIM
Quoting from Colonel Amital Tovol, Rabbi of IDF
80th Brigade: "Know that soldiers who are
observant, as well as those who are not, seek to
strengthen themselves...they seek out books of
Tehilim... but above all, the merit of Tzitzis, a shield
against the dangers of battle..." Rabbi Gottlieb of

himself the risk of going to the Gaza border to
distribute specially handmade regulation-green
Tzitzis, each pair costing 25 shekel. Please
consider donating for this Mitzvah at this crucial
time and may the Zechus of this Mitzvah protect
our Chayalim and stay with them in times of
peace. For local info, call Rivka 732-247-0621 or

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 https://www.yasharlachayal.org/campaigns/the-ari-sari-horowitz-memorial-fund/ . 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.

• Prayer for the IDF: Recite the Tefilah for the Members of the Israel Defense Forces
http://www.ou.org/life/israel/idf-prayer-card/ (text in both Hebrew & English).
• Recite Tehillim: http://tehilimyahad.com/mr.jsp?r=RskbNi5DP8 (Worldwide continuous) or http://www.mechon-
mamre.org/p/pt/pt2601.htm (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 http://shmiraproject.com 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:
http://www.hasbarafellowships.org ; http://unitedwithisrael.org ; http://www.camera.org .
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.
