Spotlight on Sisterhood
ROCHELLE LAFER, PRESIDENT
The High Holy Days are now behind us and we begin to move into the regular schedule of meetings and classes that fill our Temple. Before I share with you what is in store at our first Sisterhood meeting, I would like to take this opportunity to offer some thanks on behalf of Sisterhood to a group of incredibly hard working people.
To Rabbi Carla Freedman and Sandy and Sam Zians for all the hours they devoted to making sure that we all had meaningful and enjoyable services in spite of the last minute crisis, a huge thank you. I can only imagine how many extra hours were spent making sure that all went smoothly.
To the Men’s Club who undertook the job of finding ushers to fill all of our services and made sure that the services were not disturbed by people coming and going, our sincere thanks for a job well done.
Beth Israel Sisterhood will begin our program year with a wonderful Victorian Tea on Tuesday, October 13th at 1 pm in the Henry Gibson Social Hall at the Temple. This should be a very special treat for all of us, with lots of tea, homemade goodies to go with it, and a presentation by Marylyn Butcher on traditional Victorian teas. This is your chance to get out your hat and gloves, dust off your china teacup and join your friends at Sisterhood in a unique afternoon of fun and camaraderie. Marylyn will be providing take-home programs for all attendees so please make sure you RSVP to Barbara Grossman by October 1st. She can be reached at Sisterhoodevents@jcscc.org or by phone at 813-938-3531.
Just a reminder that in order to attend the Sisterhood Paid-up Luncheon in November you must have your dues paid by the October meeting. If you have not already sent your check to Nina Malinak, you can bring it along to the October meeting. Please make sure if there is any change in your contact information that Nina has the new information.
I look forward to seeing you all at our opening meeting on October 13th.
May we go from strength to strength.
