-We have contracted a waterproofing company to replace the lintels over the windows in the Brown Street building and waterproof the parapet walls on the roof.

This work must be done as every time it rains, water spills into the classrooms and, obviously, this must be rectified as the school complains about this issue every time it rains.

The cost of the repair is $40,000

We are asking that you do your best and please donate to our Building Fund to help defray the cost of this effort.

Please make out a check to the Young Israel and put into the Memo the words "Building Fund"

Action Regarding the Current Conflict with Hamas
Some things are so very easy to do  and are extremely important, like writing quick emails both thanking and protesting to politicians & university heads. 

Dr Rochelle Ford, President of Dillard University spoke at the rally, passionately and unreservedly against the rise of anti-semitism. She is getting an enormous backlash from people on campuses across the country to retract her support of Israel.

Please take a moment to call her office and leave a message thanking her for her support and conviction.

Recently, he was one of the 22 Dems who voted to censure fellow Dem Rashida Tlaib for her continues use of antisemitic and genocidal slogans and language. His office is getting bombarded with angry letters and emails voicing support for Tlaib and for other anti-Israel subjects. He could use our support.
