News

It is with great sorrow that we announce the passing of Benjamin Carl Freidson, grandson of Nate Freidson.  Benjamin lived in Minneapolis and passed away last Friday.  We extend our condolences and sympathy to the entire family and wish them no more sorrow.
 
Purim is almost here, and your out of town kids love shalach manot!  Darchei Noam will send them shalach manot on your behalf for $18 per package.  To place an order, send an email to Marilyn Levi-Baumgarten,m_levib@yahoo.com, by this Sunday February 22.  Please include the recipient's name and address.
 
Darchei Noam is joining a global communal effort organized by the Pardes Center for Judaism and Conflict Resolution at the Pardes Institute of Jewish Studies - Yom Machloket L'Shem Shamayim or Jewish Day of Constructive Conflict.  9 Adar is the day, 2,000 years ago, when the peaceful and constructive conflict between Beit Hillel and Beit Shammai erupted into violent and destructive conflict over 18 legal matters.  Join us in turning 9 Adar into the Jewish Day of Constructive Conflict, a day dedicated to the study and practice of constructive conflict. 

As this winter's final installment of the Darchei Noam Study Group, Shira Krebs will lead a discussion exploring some history, sources, and best practices to help us create an environment for constructive conflicts (with edible treats, too!). Saturday, February 28, 8:00 pm at the Shapiro home (2516 Monterey Ave. S.).
 
Looking ahead:  Rabbi Dov Linzer, Dean of Yeshivat Chovevei Torah, will visit us on Sunday, March 8 with a Congregational Lunch at 12:30PM

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 $25 ($20 tax deductible).  Contact Hanna Bloomfield if you'd like some of these beautiful cards!
