A group of Sisterhood members drove to Saint Pete for lunch and a visit to the Imagine Museum in January. The Imagine Museum features a spectacular collection of contemporary glass art from around the world. We enjoyed viewing the contemporary masterpieces of color, motion, and light.

Tuesday, February 7th at 1:00 pm is Sisterhood’s next presentation, entitled, “Taking Care of Your Emotional Self”. Sara Dobbs, LCSW, will speak about “The Next Chapter of Your Life”. Co-chairs are Diane Posner and Donna Weiner. Refreshments will be served. There is no charge, and no reservations are required. If you would like to bring a friend, please contact Barb G. or Donna.

Sisterhood Shabbat is planned for Friday, February 10th. Sisterhood members and a group of women from the Choir will conduct the entire service, with a little help, of course, from Rabbi Carla. Some of the members of the B’nai Torah class will read the Torah. Sisterhood Past Presidents Marsha Fader (2006-2008), Sandra Hurwitz (2011-2014), and Rochelle Lafer (2014-2019) will be given the honor of an Aliyah.

Please plan to join us for this special service! If there are days when you have no plans, please look at Sisterhood of Beth Israel. We promise you will be energized by all of the
opportunities for our members. Please add our calendar to yours. We encourage you all to join in for some serious and some fun activities.
