Spotlight on Sisterhood
ROCHELLE LAFER, PRESIDENT
Welcome to September and our High Holy Day season. As we all begin to get ready for this very special time of year I look forward to seeing many of you as we join together in prayer. Once again we will have the pleasure of being led by Rabbi Carla Freedman and Cantor Glenn Groper, who have been working together for weeks to ensure a most meaningful series of Holy Day services. On behalf of the Beth Israel Sisterhood Board of Directors I would like to wish you all a healthy and a happy New Year.
Sisterhood begins our programming year in October and runs through May. Our annual paid-up member’s luncheon will be held on Tuesday, November 14th. Please keep in mind that in order to attend the luncheon in November your Sisterhood dues must be paid by the October meeting. Don’t forget to return the form en-closed with the dues notice so that we have accurate information in order to get in touch with you.
Our opening meeting will be held on Tuesday, October 10th at 1pm in the Henry Gibson Social Hall. Our speaker will be Rabbi Carla Freedman. More information about this meeting will follow shortly.
Joy Rosen and Addie Unterlack have been busy restocking the shelves of the Sisterhood gift shop for your buying pleasure. They will have a display at the October meeting but if you need something for the holidays give them a call and they will be happy to help you.
Cyrille Cobe and her library committee have put together a wonderful program of events for the coming year, alternating between films and book discussions. If you haven’t been to a library program consider joining them for a Monday morning gathering this season.
Lyn Safian is always happy to have new volunteers to sponsor a Friday night oneg. The sign-up sheet is on the bulletin board in the social hall and Lyn or I will be happy to walk you through all you need to know to make it happen. Celebrate a birthday, an anniversary or just being a part of the congregation with your Beth Israel family.
A huge thank you to the Program Committee and Board of Directors for the exciting programs scheduled for the coming season.
I look forward to another wonderful year
May we go from strength to strength.
