DONATIONS:
YIGN has established an account at Fidelity Investments to facilitate stock donations. You can pay your Shul dues, pledges, or any other obligation by stock, which may have tax advantages to you. For example, if you donate stock with a long term capital gain, you may be able to avoid paying taxes on the capital gain while getting a charitable tax deduction for the full current value of the stock. Please call the Shul office for stock transfer instructions. Of course, you should check with your accountant to understand your specific situation. PLEASE NOTE - IF YOU MAKE A STOCK DONATION, YOU MUST NOTIFY THE SHUL OFFICE, SINCE FIDELITY WILL NOT SAY WHO SENT THE STOCK TRANSFER.

YOUTH

Shabbos Groups' snacks are sponsored by Erica & Reuben Scherzer in honor of Evan's 4th birthday and Jacob's 2nd birthday.

COMMUNITY

LEGAL FORM FOR ISRAEL EVENT
Feb. 20th, Thursday, at 8:00 p.m. at YIGN, renowned attorney Dr. Harel Arnon who volunteers for the Legal Forum for Israel will address the challenges Israel faces from judicial activists who have come to be perceived as the “unelected rulers” of Israel. The LF has been and continues to be at the forefront of the effort to regulate the State Attorney’s unchecked power and authority and to depoliticize the judicial system. At this perilous tine for Israel, for example, the Prime Minister is being forced to stand trial at a time when Israel needs stability and strong leadership. Dr. Arnon recently represented the State of Israel before the High Court and has special expertise in the field of law pertaining to Judea and Samaria. Refreshments will be served.

It is suggested that when planning a simcha or event that you post it on the calendar in order to avoid unnecessary conflicts. To post your simcha, send your request to greatneckcalendar@gmail.com. If you post on the Community Calendar, do not assume that you are booked on the Young Israel calendar as well. You must reserve your date on the Young Israel calendar independently.

CHESSED OPPORTUNITY :
Tomchei Shabbos of Queens provides food to those in need every Wednesday. There are some routes in Queens that don’t have regular drivers. If you have about 2 hours free (that’s including travel time to the warehouse in Kew Gardens) on any given Wednesday night, please call the warehouse starting at 8pm at 718-850-8070 (do not leave a message, they do not check the machine on Wednesdays). The person who answers the phone will let you know if drivers are needed that night to make deliveries. Keep in mind that in many areas in Queens it is difficult to park, so it is best if you make those deliveries with a partner (one to deliver and one to wait in the car). NO COMMITMENT NEEDED. You can do this once, once a month or every week… it’s up to you.
