This Shabbat, we are delighted to welcome scholar-in-residence Yoel Finkelman, curator of the Judaica Collection at the National Library of Israel for an interesting and informativeShabbaton.  Dr. Finkelman will speak after services Fridaynight, will deliver the dvar Torah Shabbat morning, and will lead a class at Seudah Shelishit.  Babysitting will be available during the Friday night davening and talk.  A flyer with the full schedule and titles is attached.
To mark the end of sheloshim for their mother Judy Segal(Chashe Mindel bas Zussman) z"l, Nisso & Wendy Khabieand Ron & Karen Brigel invite the congregation to a siyumfollowed by a light dairy dessert reception at Darchei Noam on Tuesday, June 28, at 8:00 pm.  Davening follows at 8:45 pm.  Nisso is making the siyum on his completion of mesechet Brachos, and will be making a meaningful dedication in Judy's memory.  If you are able to attend, please RSVP towkhabie@gmail.com by Friday, June 24, to let them know how many people in your family will attend.
Last week we thanked those who hosted our Shavuot scholars in residence and our Tikkun L'eil Shavuot sessions, but did not thank those who actually taught over the Yom Tov.  So, for making our Shavuot so meaningful and informative, thanks to our scholars in residence Blima & Alex Maged, and to our resident scholars Etan Weiss, Rob Portnoe, and Aaron Dukes.
If you (or your child) received a book at the Young Scholars program on Shavuot, you can get a personalized bookplatefrom Judy Shapiro to mark the occasion.  If you would like one, please contact Judy Shapiro, judyandjerel@comcast.com.  She will get the bookplate to the parents, who can "install" it into their kids' books.
You will soon notice a new box in the lobby next to our STEP box.  This will be for donations to care packages for Yoni Israelson.  Once a month, around Rosh Chodesh, kids will be collecting items from the box and making care packages, which will be sent to Yoni who is deployed with the Marines in Afghanistan.  We can't ship liquids, but suggested items from MN Marine Moms include granola/protein bars, Chapstick, solid deodorant (no aerosols), peanut butter crackers, or trail mix.  For more ideas or information, contact Debbie Baumgarten Kusnetz.
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!
