Sisterhood Schmooze 11/20/2014


In the words of our new WRJ Central District president, Sandy Adland, there is nothing like “Audacious Hospitality!”

Thanks to everyone who played a part in planning and orchestrating Sisterhood’s First Annual “Paid Member” luncheon last Sunday.

Over twenty sistas were treated to a delicious and delectable buffet luncheon featuring gourmet chicken, pasta with cream sauce, mixed green salad, fresh fruit and a mouth-watering selection of New York-style cheesecake.

With Sisterhood, it’s not only “all about the food,” but it’s also about inspiring programming.

Lisa Singer provided an update on WRJ activities, including the YES FUND and the Uniongram project. She explained that fund raising is crucial to supporting and enhancing the goals of both WRJ and Sisterhood.

We also extend our thanks and appreciation to Rebecca Egolf for serving as our luncheon speaker. Using a creative and unique format of pre-written questions, the sistas were provided with “inside information” about Rebecca’s background, academic pursuits, family history, favorite leisure time passions and pursuits… and perhaps the biggest curiosity: how she met her husband, Rabbi Jim Egolf!

Following that, Rebecca led us in an exercise of creating a “spider’s web” out of a ball of yarn. Standing in a circle, the sistas passed the yarn from side to side… all the while creating a “web.”

Rebecca then shared the analogy of the spider’s web being a metaphor for sharing and supporting one another within Sisterhood, within our circle of family and friends, as well as within our communities.

Thanks again to everyone who helped make this event fun and memorable!

Sisterhood Book Club… With a Twist

Please note that our upcoming Sisterhood Book Club, scheduled for Thursday, December 4th, in the TBS Social Hall has been “upgraded” to include a POT LUCK DINNER, starting at 6:30 p.m.

Discussion of author Irv Korman’s book, “I was Jerry Lewis’ Bodyguard for 10 Minutes!” will begin at 7:00 p.m.

Weather-permitting, Irv will be joining us for the discussion.

Please contact Lisa Singer at or call her at 330-241-9612 to reserve your spot.

In addition to a covered dish (appetizer, entrée, side dish or dessert), a favorite bottle of wine to share would also be appreciated!

In case of inclement weather… resulting in Hudson issuing a snow parking ban… attendees will be contacted and the gathering will be canceled.

We’ve heard from several sistas that they’re enjoying this book. Hope to see you there!

The Annual Frying of the Latkes

Sistas! Get ready for our most sizzling event of the year! Our Annual Frying of the Latkes will take place at TBS on Sunday, December 14th, starting at 9:00 a.m.

Come dressed in your “non-finest” and join us for this time-honored event!

Don’t miss out on this special day of frying and fun! Whether you want to volunteer to work a shift or stay for the day, Lisa Singer would love to hear from you! (See contact information above).

Any donations of heavy-duty tin foil and large zip-lock baggies would be appreciated. Also, those sistas who can loan food processors, cooling racks, large mixing bowls, etc. please let Lisa know as well.


Please note that all proceeds from the sale of the latkes go towards supporting Temple Beth Shalom and Sisterhood.

Yours in Sisterhood,
Emily Audra Fleisher
