*Time:*  6:30 PM Board Meeting / 7:00 PM Planning Meeting
*Where:* Jamie K's House, North Raleigh (Easy Access from All Parts of the Triangle) *(RSVP For Directions)* It's that time of the year again. It is time to plan TYJP events for the next four months. If you have any ideas or suggestions for activities or events for the time frame of January 1 through April 31, 2007, please feel free to come to the planning meeting. We are in need of new volunteers and ideas. If you cannot attend the meeting, but have any ideas, suggestions, or wish to volunteer for an event, please contact Jamie Kennedy at [EMAIL PROTECTED] <mailto:[EMAIL PROTECTED]>. Also, if you have any interest in becoming a member of the board, please let a current board member know, so that we can discuss this at our meeting. We will meet at Jamie's house for this meeting, to help facilitate easy communication between all those who attend; we have had trouble in the past with people hearing other people in noisy restaurants. TYJP will provide some type of dinner. The type of food will depend on how many people are coming. The Board will meet at 6:30 PM; the Planning Meeting will start at 7:00 PM. To RSVP and receive directions to her house, please contact Jamie at [EMAIL PROTECTED] <mailto:[EMAIL PROTECTED]>. ================================================================
*_Judaica Exhibit at the NC Museum of Art:_*
*When:*  Sunday, December 10, 2006
*Time:*  2:00 PM
*Where:*  NC Museum of Art, 2110 Blue Ridge Road, Raleigh NC (919 839-6262)
Welcome one and all to a guided tour of the newly remodeled Jewish collection at the Museum of Art on Blue Ridge Road. We look forward to seeing all of you as the learned docent takes on a trip back in time as we learn about some of the Jewish history and artifacts new to the museum in the current months. The NC Museum of Art is one of only two art museums in the nation with a collection of Jewish ceremonial art; the ceremonial art of the Jewish people is a rich and enduring legacy. More than the expression of a particular faith, these objects address the universal relationship between spiritual belief and artistic imagination. If people want afterward we could walk around the outside of the museum and see the outdoor sculpture garden and trails or go to a local establishment and have a bite to eat and shoomze. We will meet at the entrance to the Jewish collection (down the main stairs one flight, and to the right) to avoid being in the Monet lines that meet in the front of the museum. Admission is free to the museum and the permanent collections. Have questions? Email Marjorie Z.

So, come one, come all and let's make this the biggest, best New Years party around.

Attire for the party will be black-tie *OPTIONAL*. That is heavy on the optional; wear whatever you are comfortable with. Barnaby does not have enough opportunities to dress up so he'll start the evening in a tux and we will see how the party goes from there.

We are also going for try and break past years records for number of people crashing for the night. Breakfast will be served on New Year's day so there is no need to drive home in the early hours of the morning unless you really want to. If you are planning on crashing just let him know so he can have enough food for everyone on hand.

Bubbly at midnight (champagne and sparkling non-alcoholic cider).

So here's the deal: Show up on the 31st and bring your sweet selves and any solid or liquid refreshment, and a sleeping bag and pillow (optional). Come to party!
