As is common after the Yomim Tovim, some people took home other people's coats while heading home.  Please check the coat you may have brought home from shul and, if it's not yours, please bring it back.  Yours will probably be waiting for you!
The board designated Fast for Feast for this year's Yom Kippur yizkor appeal.  Fast for Feast is set up to support Leket Israel as well as a local food bank (in our case, STEP) as the recipient of the funds donated.  They are unique in that they streamline the giving to be divided up over the six fasts of the Jewish year.  You can write one check to Fast for Feast (a 501(c)3 organization), or make a one-time donation on line,www.fastforfeast.org/dnmn, and the funds are sent directly from Fast for Feast.  This URL is designated specifically for Darchei Noam.

We are updating our yahrtzeit registry, and ask members who have lost a family member in the past year - or who think that we don't have their family members on the list - to send Allan Baumgarten an email (baumg010@tc.umn.edu) with the full English and Hebrew names and the English and Jewish dates of death.
The Darchei Noam library is certainly for your use, but we need to make sure we know where our books are.  Sephorim(Gemarot, Chumashim, commentaries, etc. – generally books on the west wall) should not be taken out of the library without the specific permission of the Ritual Committee (Shira Krebs, Rob Portnoe, Allan Baumgarten, Max Donath, Debbie Kusnetz).  General literature (on the east wall) should not be removed without either leaving a note indicating you are taking it, or telling Bob Kusnetz or Mickey Kamel.  Currently, we are trying to locate volume one of Sotah and volume one ofKedushin, as well as our copy of The Glory, by Herman Wouk.  If you have any of these, please reply to this note!
Free transportation to the MSP airport if you are on your way to Israel!  Please call Marshall Mintz at 952-927-0081 or e-mail tommintz02@gmail.com to arrange a free trip.
