October 2016 Simply Sisterhood

Simply Sisterhood Blue


October, 2016


What’s happening in Sisterhood?
Today we had our annual membership tea, hosted by Marilyn Wallach in her lovely home. More than forty women attended, many current members and some new members who had just joined. It was thrilling for me to see the excitement and enthusiasm that poured out from those present. The Board and Danna Sonnenberg provided wonderful desserts and, best of all, many volunteered for our up-and-coming events.
It is my hope that the enthusiasm shown at the dessert will portend a very successful year for all our activities.
I wish all sisterhood and congregation members a happy and healthy Rosh Hashana and Yom Kippur.
Deborah Segal
