Every year, TBE’s Sisterhood provides the opportunity for partners to reach out to the entire temple community, spanning the nation, to send Rosh Hashanah greetings.  This year, approximately $10,500 in greetings were purchased and 575 packages to recipients delivered.  Many thanks to the capable team of Jen Freed, Beth Feinman, Fran Silverfish, Margaret Roche, Mimi Rosen, Beverly Wayne, Susan Goldman, Linda Mont, Paula Edelman, Vicki Wilson, Sandy Masnick, Liz Winokur and Janet Widawsky!  What a wonderful way to begin Rosh Hashanah!

After the recent events in Israel, we hosted Kehillath Shalom Synagogue, Huntington Jewish Center and Chavurat Emet for a Kabbalat Shabbat Community gathering on Friday, October 13th.  As a result, we had to ensure space for additional congregants and our Fall Rummage Sale had to be dismantled. With very limited time, we were able to donate a number of items to Tri-CYA, thereby assuring that some of our rummage sale goods were put to good use. None of this could have been accomplished without the extraordinary contributions of our wonderful custodians Jimmy, Harold and Darrell.  Other volunteers who helped with setup and breakdown were Robin Zucker, Robin Faiguenbaum, Sherry Eckstein, Janet Widawsky, Rita Anilionis, Paula Edelman, Elana Goodridge and Fran Silverfish. A huge thank you to Elaine Eig, who never fails to provide expertise, enthusiasm and energy to this endeavor. We hope that we’ll be able to help our local Huntington community with another Rummage Sale in the near future.

The Annual Sisterhood Membership brunch will take place on Sunday, December 3rd at the Crab Meadow Golf Club Restaurant.

The cost is $50 for members of TBE Sisterhood and $55 for non-members.  Save the date and watch the mail for your invitation to this special event!  We cannot wait to see you!
