It was great to see so many friends at services for the
High Holy Days, and to make so many new ones. A huge
thank you to all of the women who baked or supplied goodies
for the Rosh HaShana oneg and Yom Kippur break-the
fast. Also, special thanks go to Wanda Brunell and Sheryl
Robertson, who did an outstanding job of organizing everything
for the second year in a row. Everything looked and
I would also like to thank the ladies who came and
stayed on Tuesday night to help get ready for the oneg, and
to those who came early to help with the Yom Kippur set up.
And a special thank you to Rochelle Bekerman, who provided
the floral centerpiece.
We had a great membership kick-off in August. Did
you join? It is never too late. We need you, because without

Miriam Ward, firstname.lastname@example.org, Julie Eisenfeld,

Our gift shop had its grand re-opening on September 9.
There are lots of new things and unique, one-of-a-kind items.
Valerie Carlone and Melanie Garver have really outdone
themselves with the new look. Visit every Sunday to make
sure you don’t miss out on any of the attractions.
We had a wonderful turnout for our first cooking class
in September. The cost is $36 for non-members, and is free
to Sisterhood members. Our next scheduled programs will
be a cooking show on how to make challah by Laura Fleischer
on October 7, at 10:30 a.m. and a Tai Chi class (baby sitting
available) on October 18, at 7:00 p.m. On November 6, at
1:00 p.m., we will visit the Women’s Museum in Dallas.
