Dear Congregants:
We are looking forward to another successful and meaningful membership year in 2016-17! 

During the past year, Sisterhood donated Mishloach Manot to our Religious School and organized the baking of Hamantashen with families. We also provided the Shavuot Kiddushim for the two days of the holiday. We had a very successful , nice and warm community dinner that included a variety of delicious foods. We are planning another community Shabbat dinner in 2017.

We are working on exciting programs for the coming year. If you have an idea to share or are interested in seeing us host a particular program, please let us know. We would love to have all of our members become active in planning our events. We look forward to seeing you at our September Shabbat Speaker and Membership Dinner events!                    
Hope to see you soon, Fariba & the Board


Sisterhood dues for 2016-2017 remain at $36.00.   If you wish to attend the Membership dinner on September 22 an additional $18 is required.  $54 will cover Membership, dinner and two raffle tickets for a lovely array of prizes to be won that night!  You may pay in advance or at the door the night of the dinner, but please let us know if you plan to attend.  Please bring friends!
