THANK YOU - A huge ‘grand slam’ thank you to RACHEL LUBCHANSKY for all her work and successful efforts in organizing our Young Israel outing to the Cardinals’ victory over the Marlins on Tuesday evening.  Over 50 of us gathered for the fun.  A group of our young boys appeared on the Big Screen Jumbotron singing "Take Me Out To The Ballgame" during the 7th inning stretch and Busch Stadium lit up the scoreboard with a welcome to Congregation Young Israel.  Thank you, RACHEL.

The Transition Team thanks everyone who helped, worked, cooked, volunteered, housed, transported, and welcomed our terrific Rabbi Shulman, Baila, and family.  Our work has now come to a close.  We want everyone at Young Israel to feel free to welcome the Shulmans into their homes for Shabbos.  And a special thank you goes out to BETSY ZIMBALIST and ROSE ANN ARIEL for their hard work and coordination of 50 moving parts.  Well done! 

WELCOMEWe extend a warm welcome to new members Fanya Epshteyn and Aleksandr Shtulberg. We also  welcome Kimberly & Bernard Juroviesky and their four children:  Sean, Caitlyn, Haley, and Justin, and Michael & Sara Widlanski, who just arrived from Eretz Yisrael and will be spending this year with us.
