 Sisterhood President’s Message, February 2019

It is with much sadness that we extend our condolences to longtime Sisterhood members Shirley Abramson and Barbar Bolter on the passing of beloved brother and husband, Morrie Bolter.  Our thoughts and prayers go out to them.

The Sisterhood has been busy!  The end of the year finished with  very successful giftwrapping at Barnes and Noble.  It was our most successful venture there.  We plan on repeating our success next year.  The Sisterhood thanks all who participated and Anne and Susie Berman for co-ordinating our participation.  

We’re glad to report that Eileen Martin has recovered from her fall and emergency surgery and now is back doing so much for us. 

The Sisterhood participated in theTalent Show at the annual Hannukah party at the Temple.  Marlene Dreyfuss and Lucy Berman wrote the lyrics and directed our venture.  Thanks to all who participated. Also, a shout out to Anya Marshall who was amazing as Cher!

The Sisterhood again participated in Family Promise.  Thanks to all who brought food and served.  Good news! The mother of one of the families was able to get a job right after this.  Thanks to Susie Berman for heading up this effort for the Sisterhood.

Also, the Sisterhood again particpated in “Hannukah in the Foothills”, a now annual event in Tujunga founded and headed by Lucy Berman. The Sisterhood again had a table of donut holes that the children could fill with jelly.  All 15 dozen plus donut holes were eaten.  Thanks to all who helped with this, especially Shirley Abramson.

2019 is shaping up to be a busy year for the Sisterhood.  

The Sisterhood helped with the Funeral luncheon for Morrie Bolter at the Temple.  Thank you Eileen, Martha and everyone else.  The Sisterhood also did the Kiddish following Olivia Goldstein’s Bat Mitzveh.  Congratulations Olivia, you did a wonderful job!

The Sisterhod is planning its annual “Jewish Woman of Interest” luncheon.  More about that later.

This Sisterhood will be providing the dinner for Purim on Saturday, March 23.  

The Sisterhood will also head up the Passover Seder dinner scheduled for Saturday, April 27 at 6:30.  We hope to have participation by all.  

We are planning our annual Parking Lot Sale.  Phil Berman has agreed to cook hot dogs on the grill for us.  We’re hoping Marlene Dreyfuss will play her accordion for us.  So, start collecting clothes, toys, tools, dishes or whatever you’d like to donate.  More about this in our next issue.

Saturday night, February 9 is a tribute to radio.  Look for more information on our posters or postings on the website.

We welcome new members Bunny Jackman and Margaret Rose.  

See all of you at our next Board Meeting, Sunday, February 3.
