We were proud to be present when Diane Posner, Sisterhood Board and Temple Board, was honored as Beth Israel’s Woman of Distinction on December 9th in Tampa. Rabbi Carla presented an interesting D’var Torah. The Keynote Speaker was Nadine Epstein, who wrote 33 Brave & Brilliant Women. Ruth Bader Ginsburg collaborated with Epstein on the
selection of women and wrote the introduction. The book is focused on
Jewish women from Biblical Times to the twentieth century who are role models for all ages. We can benefit from their examples. A copy, purchased by Barbara Nova for Beth Israel’s library, will be
available to borrow.
