Darchei Noam observes Yom Hazikaron and celebrates Yom Ha'atzmautnext Wednesday evening, April 22, beginning at 7:00 pm.  The program begins with Mincha, with added prayers in memory of the fallen soldiers, then segues to festive Ma'ariv for Yom Ha'atzmaut.  Falafel, other treats, and Israeli music follow.  The program is for the entire family and open to the community.  On Thursday morning, we add Hallel to our Shacharit tefillot.
Shalomi Eldar and his family from Haifa, Israel, will be here this summer.  Per Shalomi: "We're planning to visit Minneapolis in the summer (July 13 - August 2) for my wife's research collaboration at the University of Minnesota (she's an Electrical Engineering Professor at the Technion, Israel).  We have 5 kids ages 1-17 (with a nanny), and are shomer Shabbat.  We are looking for short term rental, and will even considerhouse swap if anyone's interested in spending some time in Haifa."  If you know of housing, contact Shalomi, shalomi_e@yahoo.com, or +972-52-4239830.

If you weren't able to make it to the annual meeting, we still have some note cards, stating that a donation has been made to Darchei Noam, and featuring one of our beautiful Torah covers.  A package of 5 is $10.  Contact Hanna Bloomfield if you'd like some of these beautiful cards!
