It is my honor to be elected President of Beth Israel Sisterhood. There is a treasure of women who have served and continue to be willing to do much for the benefit of our Sisterhood. It is an awesome challenge to follow in their footsteps. Rochelle and Sandra have promised to be at my side to guide and assist. I look forward to working together with our Board to provide an interesting year for our members.
During the next few months we will organize and plan the Sisterhood Programs for this year. We hope to engage you all in our plans. We welcome all ideas. Participation will provide us with a way to get to know each other, while we serve Beth Israel. We have a great opportunity to be involved with all members of our Sisterhood. Let’s take advantage of that!
