FROM THE DINNER CHAIR On the 13 day of Kislev, 5750, December 10, 1989, I attended my first annual dinner at Young Israel Beth El of Borough Park. It was a month since my arrival at the US. It was also the first dinner since the merger between Young Israel and Beth El. Twenty-nine years later I was appointed as the Dinner Chairman. It is truly an honor and a privilege, but also a responsibility to make the event successful. It has been few years since the last Shul Dinner. For years, Mr. Martin Fruchter and Mr. Karl Weisstuch A"H organized the annual dinners very successfully. I am humbled to follow in their footsteps. I hope that the renewal of the dinner campaign will restart this important and essential function, as it is the main source of income to our great synagogue. It will help us continue our beautiful services and inspired Torah classes, provided by tonight’s Guests of Honor Rabbi Moshe and Rebbetzin Snow, and Chazzan and Mrs. Benzion Miller. Ours is a true Beth Mikdash Kattan, one that will celebrate 100 years in 2020. I hope that by that time will all be in Yerushalaim, and transfer our shul there. In the meantime, let’s turn Young Israel Beth El of Borough Park into the Great Synagogue of Brooklyn. Finally, I would like to thank the members of the Dinner Committee for their efforts in our campaign. They deserve an enormous Hakarat Hatov. -Ilan Rubin Young Israel Beth El of Borough Park 30th Anniversary Dinner November 4, 2018

THE HAKORAS HATOV AWARD

FOR OUTSTANDING SERVICE TO YIBE MORDECHAI (MARK) ROTTENSTEIN From the beginning of my Jewish education at Yeshiva Etz Chaim through Mirrer Yeshiva, I never dreamt that I would be bestowed with such an honor as this year’s Hakoros Hatov Award. My Torah learning today, and hopefully through the days of the Meshiach ‫במהרה בימנו‬, is from our esteemed Rabbi, Rav Moshe Snow ‫שליט"א‬ whom I have had the privilege of knowing since the days of the old Young Israel of Borough Park on 50th Street. Together with our world renowned Chazzan Ben Zion Miller we will be enhancing this soonto-be-centennial shul for many years to come. ‫ יישר כוחכם‬to the Dinner Honorees. - Mordechai (Mark) Rottenstein

FROM THE WOMEN’S LEADERSHIP COUNCIL Our group of women have sponsored Chanukah get togethers, a Holocaust Remembrance Day activity with survivor testimony and other activities in the past few years. This year we invite members of our community to share in creating new experiences as the role of the woman in our shul is recognized. We hope to develop a study group to explore questions and issues that concern us. For example, on Yom Kippur we read about the 10 martyrs, but did you know they were from different periods of history? Why are they mentioned together? Also, many of us are concerned about proper nutrition and issues of women’s health. Perhaps a seminar on this topic? Our first activity will focus on the joyous holiday of Chanukah. We are looking to expand our membership and invite all women to join us. We are planning to meet in the Shul office one evening in November and hope you will join us. It’s a great opportunity to make new friends and take an active role in our shul. Each one of us brings a different skill set to the table. We really can accomplish great things if we come together as a group. Please contact the office and leave your name and phone number and I’ll contact you. My mother was an active member of the YIBE sisterhood and I hope to continue the wonderful work and history of our Shul women. We need your support and participation to make this a success. Please join us. -Renée Minkowitz, Chair

We were especially moved by the beautiful Divrei Torah that Rabbi Snow delivered at the Siyum Mishnayos at my mother’s Yahrtzeit Seudah. Mazel Tov to Chazzan & Mrs. Miller. Listening to Chazzan Miller daven is extremely inspirational. Mazel Tov to Mark Rottenstein upon receiving this wonderful, well-deserved honor. May you go from strength to strength as you continue to build YIBE for many years to come with your Torah scholarship and your support of learning.
