SHUSHAN LOUNGE   - THANK YOU! to Mordechai & Debbie Simon and their loyal troop of cooks, decorators, and planners. To the Not-Quite-Ready-for-Prime-Time –Rabbi Players: Daniel Lefton, Michael & Sima Oberlander, Mark Drazen, and Nigel Ohrenstein. The Shushan Lounge was a great hit. Rumor has it that franchise arrangements are being made throughout Y.I. communities for the Shushan concept, and that Steven Spielberg has contacted you to see if next year there can be a Spiel in every Berg! Thank you for your hard work, tasty food, lovely decorations, and side aching laughs


To Barry Needle: Thank you for your tenure as president of Young Israel. It has been, fun, confusing, fun, chaotic, and fun. I have greatly enjoyed your sense of humor. No one knows as much as I do the dedication you have for Y.I. And to the woman behind the man, Hessie, I am delighted for the opportunity to know you. Thank you both for everything. Clare
