November 2017 Sisterhood News

Shalom. Now that we have celebrated the High Holy Days and the cool fall days are upon us, the Sisterhood has started the year off planning events for fun, education, and community service.
On October 15th, we walked for Making Strides Against Breast Cancer. Thanks to everyone who donated and turned out. Our Sisterhood Paid-up Membership Brunch was a huge success. Our very own Melanie Katz, a NYC high school principal, enlightened us about the current state of the NYC education system. We learned quite a lot. Thank you, Melanie.
We’re sure you will want to join us at the Torah Fund Breakfast on Sunday November 19th at 10:00am. The fund is an integral part of the Sisterhood and the Women’s League of Conservative Judaism, allowing us a direct avenue to support Conservative Judaism and the Jewish Theological Seminary. Each year we honor a deserving Sisterhood member. I am pleased to inform you that this year’s honoree is long time member Linda Liederman, our congregational nurse. She has participated in many of our services, as well as being Torah lifter extraordinaire.
We can’t forget that we have been renovating and restocking our gift shop for Chanukah and other occasions. We have the latest mah jongg cards for sale.
We are planning many new and exciting events for the upcoming year. We will be joining with other Sisterhoods to sponsor a special event. Our Holiday Bazaar is just around the corner. We are looking forward to our Woman’s Seder and have received requests to repeat our delicious challah baking. Let’s not forget our successful Purim Project. We are anticipating an evening of ballroom dancing in conjunction with the Men’s Club, a theater trip, a game day, book club, and other special activities. Details of these events and upcoming planning meeting will be forthcoming.
We are always happy to hear more voices in Sisterhood. For those who would like to become more involved and be a part of planning Sisterhood events, please join us at our next meeting on Thursday November 2nd at 8:00pm. We are looking forward to an interesting and meaningful year.
