Past Happenings

  

Sisterhood had such an amazing time at our Crack Dot Bam Mah Jongg night! With over 60 ladies in attendance, we had so much fun teaching newbies how to play, learning from seasoned “Mahj Matrons,” and just playing a friendly game with new friends. Special thanks to Diane Kufert for her excellent guest teaching lecture with slides to boot!

   

Sisterhood had an AMAZING Hanukkah event this past month. Around 40 of our lovely members gathered to play dreidel, enjoy delicious latkes, and play a super fun Saran Wrap game.  We also participated in a mitzvah project making shopping bags out of old shirts which benefited the Food Pantry. To top off the evening, Talia Kushnick spoke about women’s heroism in the Hanukkah story. 

               

                                            

Just in time for the Holidays, our Sisterhood had a delicious time learning a new honey cake recipe at our Rosh Hashanah inspired Honey Cake Bake.  

                     

Our Sisterhood membership appreciation brunch was a huge success with over 60 lovely ladies enjoying delicious nosh prepared by our amazing kitchen staff.  

About Sisterhood
Every organization in which you come in contact wants you, your time and your energy. So why should Sisterhood at Congregation Anshai Torah be a part of your life? The answer is simple. You spend time doing things for your family, our synagogue, your job. You provide services: chauffeur, caregiver, chief cook and bottle washer, laundress, social chairman - the list goes on and on. You need to ask yourself; what do I do just for me?

The answer should be Sisterhood. Come to our gatherings to have some time just for you. Take time to be with other Jewish women, to learn something new, to have some fun and a good laugh. Enjoying life and laughter are integral parts of Sisterhood. Use the right side of your brain and expand your Jewish knowledge.  Take a big breath and relax, vent, brag, discuss, ask/give advice with other women who share similar goals and life dilemmas with you. Sisterhood wants to get to know you and we think you will enjoy getting to know us!
