March 2017 Sisterhood News

Shalom! Sisterhood had a very successful month in February. Our Sisterhood Shabbat was a moving experience, as we lead the service from beginning to end. The Kiddush that followed was delicious. Special thanks to Maris Blechner, Beth Diker, and Robyn Rosenberg for their hard work.

Our trip to the Nassau County Museum of Art was a lot of fun. Robyn Rosenberg arranged for the docent to ensure that everyone had an informative and fabulous visit. Many of us enjoyed dinner together afterwards,

As we approach the joyous holiday of Purim. Sisterhood prepares for Purim with our Purim Project, organized by Vicky Wolkofsky and the tireless Maris Blechner. Vicky has again designed an innovative package. We are looking for volunteers on Sunday, March 5th at 10AM to help put together our Shalach Manot. The goodies will be distributed on Purim, March 11th after the Megillah reading. We have had lots of fun doing this in the past, as we also enjoy a light breakfast.

We will once again have our annual Women’s Seder, which will take place on March 26th at 4pm. Sisterhood has created Haggadah for its own use, making the experience very personal. The Seder will again be led by Rabbi Ellie Shemtov. This is a very special event that is educational, spiritual, and fun.

We will end the year on Wednesday, June 14th with a challah bake, where we will learn to make our own challahs. Yum!

Please join us at our next planning meeting on March 2nd at 8pm.
