Sisterhood Schmooze 2/5/2015

It’s Almost Here…

The annual Sista and Guest Night, hosted by Lisa and Rick Singer, is a sure-fire way to chase the winter blahs!

Now’s the time to sift through your recipe boxes and cookbooks to come up with something truly tasty and delicious to share with the group.

We will be gathering at the Singer’s lovely Medina home on Saturday evening, February 28th, at 6:00 p.m.

In addition to enjoying special culinary treats, we will also be treated to specialty cocktails, compliments of “Bartender Rick,” and an always wonderfully inspiring Havdalah service.

This is the foodie event of the year! For information, please contact Lisa at

Hope to see you there!

Passover Prep

On April 2, the sistas will be gathering at the TBS kitchen to create some special holiday treats! Please join us for the Passover 5775 “Charoset Chop!”

These culinary favorites will be enjoyed at the TBS Congregational Second Seder.

Combined Sisterhood and Brotherhood Event

Mark your calendars for Sunday, April 19th. On that day, the Sisterhood and Brotherhood will be “heading south” for a special day of touring and dining!

Visits are planned to the National Football Hall of Fame Museum and the National First Ladies Library–the former family home of Ida Sexton McKinley, both of which are located in Canton.

Following the tours, the group will meet up for a special dining adventure at the popular Gervasi Vineyard.

Watch the e-Megillah and the Schmooze for details!

The Meaning of Sisterhood

Please enjoy the following words of inspiration written by Hilda R. Glazer, past WRJ Central District president:

As Sisters, we come together
Creating a brighter fire in each of us
Burning our unique flames
Like a twisted Havdallah candle
That secures its life from each individual wick.
Putting together the pieces that make us complete
When we are baking,
When we are planning,
When we are dancing,
When we are crying,
When we are helping others,
And when we link arms in sisterhood.
Our Eternal Flames shine brighter;
Our purpose is stamped through the community,
And our lives are enriched by Tikkun Olam,
Bringing the Divine that much closer to us all.

Yours in Sisterhood,
Emily Audra Fleisher
