Minutes of Vaad Menahel meeting 12.11.08
Were approved and signed.
For the first evening 120 people participated, about 20 of them members or children of members of Yedidya. Some 70 took part on the second Thursday. The needs of the Beit Midrash, such as books and tables will need to be discussed.
The Vaad recognizes
It was suggested that an events box be added and highlighted on the front page of the new web-site. (Likewise Asher will be asked to start Yediot with announcements of special events.)
Before the new site goes up we need to
appoint a person who will have the final word in approving it. Miriam agreed to
take this on. It was noted that it was important that our fund-raisers have
something to show.
We received about a dozen responses, and comments will be referred to the Gabbaim. Not all were happy with the "choir" for T'filat Geshem. This issue should be further discussed by the Minhag committee
The question of whether to have two minyanim for Mussaph on Rosh Hashanah will be raised at the next Vaad meeting. It was also suggested that afterwards there be a discussion on Deot.
J.J. Marx is working on a family event. Programme suggestions were made and it was agreed that there would be only one community event.
Randi reported on the event (on Sunday 16th November at ) and the individuals and organizations presenting programmes.
