Sisterhood News – January 2013

Happy New Year to one and all! Sisterhood is going strong in 2013 and January is a busy month. We’ll start the year with Sushi & Sake with Men’s Club on January 12 and celebrate another Sisterhood Shabbat on January 26. Both promise to be spectacular!

Have you seen the Trudy Barsky Gift Shop lately? Have you noticed that it has been reinvigorated? We have beautiful gifts, thoughtful gifts and loads of fun stuff for kids. Take a look.

Purim? Already? You bet! We’ve been planning and tasting to put together a meaningful Shallach Manot experience for everyone. There’s plenty of work to do. Come on down to HHJC on February 17 to help assemble the project.

Updated Zumba fliers are available in the lobby and outside the sanctuary. See you at Zumba on Thursday nights!

Have you heard about KAYAM? These Sisterhood events – Sushi & Sake with Mens Club, Sisterhood Shabbat, Womens Seder and Torah Fund Breakfast – are KAYAM star eligible. Four stars gets you two free movie tickets and you’ll be entered to win a flat-screen TV in June.

We need you to come to a Sisterhood meeting to help with Sisterhood’s responsibilities. Meetings are on Wednesday nights at 8:15 in Menchel on January 9, February 6, March 13, April ?, May ? & June 5. There will always be a snack and a laugh waiting for you.

The Sisterhood of HHJC is a vibrant organization within the temple that sponsors a variety of activities that combine social, cultural, charitable and educational aspects of Jewish life. Our members make us strong, our events make us fun and your participation makes us run.

If you haven’t yet sent in your dues, what are you waiting for? Please call me and let me know. We’d really like all the women at HHJC to become Sisterhood members.
