February 2019

A huge thank you to all who helped to make our Tu BiSh’vat Seder such a special event.
Our February Sisterhood meeting will be held on Tuesday, February 5th at 1:00pm. Our guest speaker for the afternoon will be Sheri Rosedale Villaverde. Sheri spent much of her adult life trapped in an abusive relationship. While coming to grips with the events in her life, she began to keep a record of her thoughts and feelings. These pages ultimately turned into her newly published book, Symphony Of Her Heart. Sheri will share with us how she came to write her book, and her hopes for helping others who find themselves caught in abusive relationships.
Because of the important topic of this meeting, we are opening this event to the entire community. If you know of someone who would benefit from this topic, please bring them along.
Sheri will have copies of her new book available for purchase at the meeting (cash or checks only).
Refreshments will be served and I look forward to seeing many of you at the most important meeting.

May we go from strength to strength.
