Our Temple is blessed with a wonderful group of volunteers who step up to get us through these stressful times. As I have said, the world can-not function without volunteers. If you are able to, reach out to someone, make a call, invite someone to sit in your driveway, or if possible, go for a walk with someone. Sisterhood members, I challenge you to make a difference this month!
The Sisterhood program had a great turnout for the “Sleep and Stress Management” program in October. If you were unable to attend the ZOOM meeting, there is a video and copy of Kathryn’s PowerPoint presentation available if you let me know.
Sisterhood has planned a ZOOM program on Tuesday, November 10th at 1:00 pm. Dr. Fredric J. Weiner, Licensed Psychologist, will provide an interactive presentation, “How Well Do You Know Yourself?” You will need four sheets of 8½” x 11” paper and a pencil with an eraser. All Temple members are invited.
Book Club will meet via ZOOM on Monday, November 16th at 10:30 am to discuss The Other Einstein by Marie Benedict.
Sisterhood will complete the remainder of its pledge of $2100 to Temple by the end of the year.
Please call me with any questions about Sisterhood.
