  • Sisterhood Summer 2018 News July 2, 2018

    Shalom! Summer has finally arrived. The end of the year Sisterhood and Men’s Club Hoedown was a terrific evening. Everyone had a great time line dancing to the lively music of Savannah Sky. Tony’s delicious barbecue was a perfect accompaniment.

    Very soon you will receive a flyer to order personalized jars of honey for family and friends. Maris Blechner is once again chairing the Honey from the Heart fundraiser.

    There are still tickets left to see Fiddler on the Roof in Yiddish with English supertitles at the Museum of Jewish Heritage. We have a bus to transport us.

    Next year we have already started planning many exciting events. On Friday, September 28th, the Sisterhood will hold our first event, 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 10 am 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 Annual Sisterhood Breast Cancer Walk is on October 21st. We thank Jaye Solomowitz for organizing this event once 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 is on November 18th. A special speaker is planned.

    We are working on events for December, January, and February. Many members have asked to have the Maine Rebbetzin back to share more of her funny life stories. Many exciting ideas are being tossing 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 cook for us.

    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 continue to provide interesting information and fun programs for next year. When you receive your membership application. Please remember to send it in.

    Have a great summer.

  • June 2018 Sisterhood News June 4, 2018


    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!

    Shalom! Now that winter is on its way out and spring is in the air, we are gearing up for our spring activities.

    Thank you to all the wonderful women who worked so hard to put together the Israeli themed Purim baskets. Thanks also to those who helped distribute the baskets after the Medillah reading.

    Our plans for the upcoming season include a games day, a special themed Sisterhood sponsored Shabbat, our unique Women’s Seder, and our back-by-demand Challah Bake. We are looking forward to a square dance on June 10th co-sponsored by the Men’s Club. We hope to see all of you at the Hollis Hills Bayside Simcha 2018 Dinner, honoring Rabbi David Weiss, as he celebrates his 13th anniversary as rabbi of the HHJBC.

    Please remember our gift shop for that special gift. The Hollis Hills Bayside Jewish Center sponsors events that bring us together for variety of cultural, charitable, and fun happenings. As always, we welcome your suggestions and participation.

    Stay tuned for our next planning meeting. Remember, if you need a ride, just let us know.
