There is 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!
