Sisterhood September 2018

Shalom! A happy, healthy, and peaceful New Year to all.

Welcome to the women of The Jewish Center of Oak Hills, who have already participated in our meetings. We look forward to socializing, planning, and working together.

A special thank you goes out to the late Sisterhood member Pearl Wasserman. She was a past president and very active member of our Sisterhood for many decades. We are grateful to Pearl for her generosity even after her passing away in supporting Sisterhood.

Our Honey from the Heart fundraiser was extremely successful as usual. Thank you Maris Blechner. Family and friends are sure to enjoy their decorative jars of honey for Rosh Hashanah. Thanks to all who participated.

Our trip to see Fiddler on the Roof in Yiddish (with English subtitles) at the Museum of Jewish Heritage was so much fun. It was a really special day. And those who took the bus, didn’t have to worry about the drive into Manhattan.

Please join us on Friday, September 28th at 7:15PM, when the Sisterhood will hold our first Dinner in the Sukkah. It will be nice to be together again after the summer hiatus.

The Flutissimo Quartet will entertain us on Sunday, October 14th at 10AM for our paid-up Sisterhood membership breakfast. The group comes with a variety of flutes and demonstrates the various sounds and differences, as they play for us.

The Hollis Hills Bayside Pink Ladies will again participate in the Annual Breast Cancer Walk at Jones Beach on October 21st. We thank Jaye Solomowitz for organizing this event again.

As Chanukah is really early this year, we are holding our annual Holiday Bazaar on November 4th. We have many new vendors interested this year.

The Annual Torah Fund Brunch will be on November 18th. We are thrilled to honor Jo Ann Luquis for her dedication, participation, and leadership in Sisterhood.

We are working on events for December, January, and February. Of course we will have our annual Purim basket fundraiser. Many members have asked that we have the Maine Rebbetzin back to share more of her funny life stories. Other exciting ideas are being tossed around. We are in touch with an instructor for a tallit making workshop. and a Wine and Art evening. We are also discussing having a well-known chef prepare and teach us to prepare a delicious Kosher meal.

Don’t forget to check out our gift shop run by Marilyn Seidenfeld.

Teamwork is the best approach to a successful Sisterhood. Please join us at our planning meetings, so we can provide interesting, educational, and fun programs. The next planning meeting will be announced soon.

We are looking forward to an exciting year with Sisterhood. Our energetic group of women support the local, national, and international Jewish community. Your membership makes a difference.
