Please remember the Shul rents parking spaces from Parkland Pool, behind the Shul building. Members should not park in the Shopping Center lot unless shopping there. Also, please be careful when crossing the street to the Shul. Traffic in and out of the Shopping Center, both on Lamberton and Arcola, can be heavy at times. Proceed with caution! Finally, when parking in the Pool lot behind the Shul, do not block in the large moving vans parked there. They rent that space and can have your car towed away if you block them in.

From the Youth Minyan – Thank you for the strong support you have given the youth minyan this past year. Sponsoring the regular kiddushes by joining the "kiddush club" helps develop the camaraderie that encourages our children to keep coming to shul. In no small part due to the kiddushes, the youth minyan has expanded its ranks and filled the seats vacated by graduating seniors and others off to Israel and college. Help us provide the weekly Kiddush through individual sponsorships of the Kiddush club. Please continue to support the kiddush by contributing an amount comfortable to you (a recommended minimum is $36). The funds would be pooled his will provide a weekly Kiddush when we are lacking a sponsored Kiddush. To contribute, email Judy Mehlman, youthminyan@yise.org or call 301-649-5505 and let her know how you would like to help. Checks should be made payable to YISE and marked with Youth Minyan Kiddush Club.
