    Shalom! The new year of exciting Sisterhood events has already begun.

    The Sisterhood sponsored Congregation Family Shabbat Dinner in the Sukkah was enjoyed by all. There were many helpers that night for which we are grateful. Special thanks go to Robyn Rosenberg and Jaye Solomowitz, who were not publicly thanked that night.

    Our paid-up membership brunch was a huge success. Not only did we enjoy a wonderful breakfast, but we were entertained and enlightened with a program by the talented Flutissimo Quartet. Thank you to all the Sisterhood members who helped make it a success.

    We appreciate Jaye Solomowitz for organizing the Hollis Hills Bayside Pink Ladies Breast Cancer Walk at Jones Beach.

    Thank you to everyone who participated in the luncheon welcoming the ladies of Oak Hills. It was lovely.

    As Chanukah is really early this year, we are holding our Annual Holiday Bazaar on November 4th. We have many new vendors and a large new Sisterhood Judaica shop, as well as Grandma’s Attic.

    Our Mah Jongg Club begins on November 11th from 1pm to 5pm. Naomi Horowitz is graciously heading this activity.

    This year our Annual Torah Fund Brunch will be held on Sunday, November 18th. We are thrilled to honor Jo Ann Luquis for her dedication, participation and leadership in Sisterhood.

    Our Annual Challah Bake and Breakfast is set for Sunday, March 10th.

    Purim Basket set up (with bagels) will be on March 17th. Distribution will follow the Megillah reading on March 20th.

    We have many other events in the planning stage.

    Please join us at our next planning meeting on a date to be announced. Our energetic group of Sisterhood members support the local, national and international Jewish Community.

  • Sisterhood September 2018 August 23, 2018

    Shalom! A happy, healthy, and peaceful New Year to all.

    Welcome to the women of The Jewish Center of Oak Hills, who have already participated in our meetings. We look forward to socializing, planning, and working together.

    A special thank you goes out to the late Sisterhood member Pearl Wasserman. She was a past president and very active member of our Sisterhood for many decades. We are grateful to Pearl for her generosity even after her passing away in supporting Sisterhood.

    Our Honey from the Heart fundraiser was extremely successful as usual. Thank you Maris Blechner. Family and friends are sure to enjoy their decorative jars of honey for Rosh Hashanah. Thanks to all who participated.

    Our trip to see Fiddler on the Roof in Yiddish (with English subtitles) at the Museum of Jewish Heritage was so much fun. It was a really special day. And those who took the bus, didn’t have to worry about the drive into Manhattan.

    Please join us on Friday, September 28th at 7:15PM, when the Sisterhood will hold our first Dinner in the Sukkah. It will be nice to be together again after the summer hiatus.

    The Flutissimo Quartet will entertain us on Sunday, October 14th at 10AM for our paid-up Sisterhood membership breakfast. The group comes with a variety of flutes and demonstrates the various sounds and differences, as they play for us.

    The Hollis Hills Bayside Pink Ladies will again participate in the Annual Breast Cancer Walk at Jones Beach on October 21st. We thank Jaye Solomowitz for organizing this event again.

    As Chanukah is really early this year, we are holding our annual Holiday Bazaar on November 4th. We have many new vendors interested this year.

    The Annual Torah Fund Brunch will be on November 18th. We are thrilled to honor Jo Ann Luquis for her dedication, participation, and leadership in Sisterhood.

    We are working on events for December, January, and February. Of course we will have our annual Purim basket fundraiser. Many members have asked that we have the Maine Rebbetzin back to share more of her funny life stories. Other exciting ideas are being tossed around. We are in touch with an instructor for a tallit making workshop. and a Wine and Art evening. We are also discussing having a well-known chef prepare and teach us to prepare a delicious Kosher meal.

    Don’t forget to check out our gift shop run by Marilyn Seidenfeld.

    Teamwork is the best approach to a successful Sisterhood. Please join us at our planning meetings, so we can provide interesting, educational, and fun programs. The next planning meeting will be announced soon.

    We are looking forward to an exciting year with Sisterhood. Our energetic group of women support the local, national, and international Jewish community. Your membership makes a difference.

    AN UPDATE FROM SISTERHOOD

    Yes, summer is coming – and hopefully that means relaxing time.  However, for Sisterhood, it means even more.

    First of all, in June we are going to have some Hoedown fun, co-sponsored by Men’s Club.  Then we have Honey From The Heart, a great program of ORT of Atlanta, where we have the chance to send family and friends a personalized gift of a jar of honey for Rosh Hashanah, at a terrific price.  Watch for the mailing. Then we have our bus ride to the Yiddish Theatre production of FIDDLER ON THE ROOF on the afternoon of August 12th.  (Be sure to order your tickets now, or it will be too late.)

    Beyond that, though, Sisterhood is already making lots of plans for next year.  We have some old ideas, and some new ones, that we know you will enjoy.  A Challah Bake, a Holiday Bazaar, some terrific outside entertainment – plus our paid up membership brunch and our Torah Fund event…all are already in the works.

    We look forward to sharing good times with old friends and new. Meanwhile – have a great summer!
