* please refrain from wearing any fragrances (many people are allergic to them). We are a scent-free zone.
* turn off ALL cell phones and any other electrical devices
* as we would like to celebrate Shabbat as a community we ask that you wait to have the Kiddush and Hamotze

recited before partaking of the Kiddush lunch
* always wear a kippah and tallit when participating in our Shabbat service
* no applauding during Shabbat services

This helps us in our aim to make Shabbat a pleasant and memorable experience for all.

(although every word of the Megillah, including Haman's name, must be heard clearly). The gragger was developed to help
make noise during the reading.

A Weekly FAX from the Center for Substance Abuse Research CESAR FAX Buprenorphine Series March 31, 2003 to December 15, 2014 (updated January 9, 2015) Center for Substance Abuse Research University of Maryland 4321 Hartwick Road, Suite 501 College Park, MD 20740 301-405-9770 (phone) 301-403-8342 (fax) CESAR is pleased to provide this compilation of CESAR FAX issues focusing on buprenorphine. While research indicates that buprenorphine is an effective drug for treating opioid dependence, we feel that the potential for its nonmedical use and related unintended consequences may be going unnoticed. The most recent CESAR FAX issues on buprenorphine were designed to highlight indicators of the increased availability, diversion, and misuse of buprenorphine. CESAR will continue to monitor the diversion and abuse of buprenorphine and report on developments as they arise.
