March Meshuggas Update
After the first day of the majority of the American workforce being unproductive watching college basketball, we have our own president, Steve Hilsenrath in the early lead of the Fifth Annual YINW March Meshuggas Bracket Tournament Challenge with Mordechai Gampel and Jordan Hiller rounding out the top three. Of course, things can change extremely quickly over the first weekend. Many thanks to Shapsie Markus once again for arranging this YINW event.

On Cloud Nine
We are excited to announce the launch of ShulCloud as YINW's web based tool. ShulCloud will allow members to check account balances, review recent activity and update personal information. In addition, members will also be able to make individual or recurring payments.

If you haven't received the email instructions or having issues logging in, please contact David Bach at or Yitzy Horowitz at

YINW Mishloach Manot Update and Thank Yous
We thank all those who participated in this year’s Sisterhood Mishloach Manot. This includes the Ackerman family who participated, but were accidentally deleted from the final list - unless Shapsie was involved, in which case we would suspect foul play. If you have not yet picked up your Mishloach Manot from the shul office, please arrange to do so. On behalf of the entire shul, we would like to thank Fern Seinuk and the Sisterhood Mishloach Manot team. Thank you to Dovy Frankel, Judy Gutman, Jonah Rosenberg, Stephanie Scharf and Lisa Septimus for organizing the highly successful Adult Purim Party!

What Could It Be?
Make sure to be in shul this Shabbat as Fred Wilkoski will be giving a very special announcement.

Clean Up Time
The shul will be cleaned on March 30th for Pesach. Please refrain from bringing chametz into the sanctuary area thereafter until after Pesach.
