    Everyone in URH housing: URH has changed its policy regarding extensions. Rather than informing students of extension opportunities, they are requiring all students needing extensions to find this information theirselves. If you need an extension for the Sabbath after finals, you must apply for it by today, Friday, 5pm. According to the office, any reuests revieved after that point will be denied.

    If you have not received your copy of IGGROT ha'Ari in the mail, please come pick up one in the Jewish Office. If you would like to be on staff next year or if you have a paper to submit, contact Yael Lerman at YL234. You can also pick up journal guidelines in the Jewish Office.

    Do you have extra Barnard dining points that are soon going to disappear into point oblivion? Then please contact Ilisa Schaffer at x31576 (is179) or Miriam Sheinbein at x32474 (mas146) to transform those wasted points into food for the New York hungry.

    Please note that next year the Shabbat before Labor Day will be part of our Orientation program. There will not be meals provided at Hewitt for returning students, only for new students. If you plan to be on campus that weekend, please make other arrangements for your meals.

    Rabbi Sheer is looking to hire a Mashgiach to oversee the kosher dining plan at Barnard for next semester. The individual must be knowledgeable of the laws of kashrut and observe the Sabbath according to halachah (Jewish law). Free meals & a nice stipend. Contact Rabbi Sheer as soon as possible.
