Sunday, April 12th, the TBS book club met at Mitch Fromm’s home and discussed a wonderful book, Henna House, by Nomi Eve. The group agreed that this was a wonderful book and that it described a time and place with which we were not familiar. Mitch suggested for our next book that we go back to the classics, so we chose The Fixer, by Bernard Malamud. We’ll meet at 7 PM on June 7th at the Fromm house. Please contact Jean Beasley or Ed Weisman (Adult Learning committee chairs) with questions.
Sisterhood Shabbat: A Service of Inspiration and Sharing
Please join the Sisterhood on Friday, April 24, at 7:45 p.m., for our annual Sisterhood Shabbat and Oneg.
Our service will begin at 7:45 p.m. and will include readings from the Torah as well as traditional Shabbat prayers and observances.
Since this is a collaborative effort, please consider supporting this event by either serving as a reader (both English and Hebrew) and/or by donating a special treat for the Oneg to follow.
Thank you for your support of Temple Beth Shalom and of our Sisterhood. We look forward to sharing this special evening with the congregation.
Sisterhood Cheesecake Raffle Scheduled for Friday, May 22nd
In conjunction with the TBS Shavuot observances, the Sisterhood will be hosting a special Cheesecake Raffle.
Bakers will be asked to create two (2) cheesecakes--one for sampling during the tasting event and a second whole cheesecake which will go home with the winning raffle ticket holder.
Bakers, now is your time to be creative! More than that, we’re hoping that your written recipes will be shared! Also, please notate any food-specific aspects, such as gluten-free, sugar-free, nut-free, and so on.
Raffle tickets will be sold that evening for a dollar each or six for five dollars.
Prior to the Cheesecake Raffle, a Shavout Celebration dinner and program will be held at TBS beginning at 5:30 p.m. Shabbat services will begin at 7:45 p.m.
Cost for the dinner is $5.00 per guest or $18.00 per family.
Please ensure that your cheesecake donation is received at TBS no later than 7:00 p.m. on May 22nd.
Your tax-deductible donations and generous participation are greatly appreciated!
Mitzvah Day Is On The Way...
Sunday, June 14th, has been designated for the 2015 community-based Mitzvah Day. As in the past, we are seeking volunteers to donate their time and talents at one of the community sites and programs included on the roster.
This is a day set aside for volunteers throughout our community to devote some time to bettering the lives of those who could use our help and support.
“The Fifth Question”
Congratulations to Len Rose for winning the “Matzo Math” contest! Len’s response to the question of how many matzo balls were prepared by Lisa and Rick Singer came closest to the actual amount--which was 135. Len guessed 128.
Your special gift is on its way to you, Len. Congratulations!
Yours in Sisterhood,
Emily Audra Fleisher
I would like to thank all of you who attended our wonderful community Seder! It was a success because so many of you came and because so many pitched in to help make it happen. I want to extend a very special thank you to Laurie Frankino, who organized and spent many hours planning and setting up everything. Sisterhood and Brotherhood members were on hand Thursday to help with making charoset and to set up the tables and chairs. We have a very busy April at Temple! We have services on April 10th, 17th and the 24th! On the 17th, we will observe Yom Hashoah Remembrance Day and on the 24th, Sisterhood will lead the service. By the way, if you don’t have a child in religious school, you are missing a wonderful experience. Every time I am in the building during religious school, I am impressed with all the activities that Stefani and our teachers have planned. A demonstration of matzoh baking from the Matzoh Factory last Thursday was impressive!
My picture this month is from our recent Brotherhood Wine Tasting event! Yes, I had a great time! Thanks, Ben, for this fun picture and for all the terrific pictures you took that night.
