Sisterhood March 2014 News

Sisterhood Shabbat was ABSOLUTELY WONDERFUL!!! Thank You to EVERYONE who participated. We showed our spirit, our courage and our talents. Next year’s Sisterhood Shabbat will be on January 17, 2015, Parshat Va’era.

Our February meeting was postponed due to snow and ice. As soon as we settle on a date with Mother Nature, we’ll let everyone know. The plan is to meet on a Sunday at 10am in the Ballroom for a very brief meeting and an Author Talk with Rita Plush whose latest book is Alterations, a collection of short stories written over many years. Rita will read a selection, answer questions and sign autographs. Bring friends, relatives and anyone who reads or writes. This is sure to be a fascinating morning. I have read the book, thoroughly enjoyed it and highly recommend it!!! Rita’s stories grab you and completely immerse you in their worlds. You will, literally, laugh, cry, hear the sounds of the happenings and smell the chicken soup simmering. Read This Book!!!

Just a Reminder: Sisterhood will no longer deliver challah, wine and cookies a week or so after shiva as the Chesed Committee has begun sending meals to those sitting shiva.
