  • Sisterhood January 2020 News December 31, 2019


    It may be cold outside, but Sisterhood hearts are always warm.  We have had two totally enjoyable brunches this past fall, plus a lovely Shabbat Family/Community dinner almost in the sukkah.  Then on Dec. 1st we had our Chanukah Bagels and Bargains event.  Many thanks to all of you who braved nasty weather to join us.  We were happy to give you a yummy bagel and were grateful that you stayed to schmooze and shop.

    If you were there, and did not see something that you wish we carried in our Judaica Shop, please let us know.  We may be able to get it for you, or for next year.  If you didn’t make it, please be aware that we always have many beautiful gift items for sale, visible in our gift shop “windows.”  If you can’t get out, and need a gift, please call Lisa at 917-282-8701, and we may be able to help.

    Double thanks go to the “Chanukah Gift Shop Committee,” the intrepid women who came early and helped set us up – then stayed to help sell – and even shopped themselves.  You are the best!

    As we move into heavy winter, watch for Sisterhood events that are coming. Purim basket-stuffing will be here soon, and attending a women’s seder with the larger Sisterhood community.

    We see all of the women of HHBJC as part of Sisterhood – but if you haven’t sent in your dues for this year yet, there is still time.  We may even send you a reminder in the next few weeks.

    See you soon!

  • December 2019 Sisterhood News November 25, 2019

    What fun we had at the Torah Fund Brunch!  The French Toast was yummy and honoring Laura Brodsky made the room shining and bright! 

    Now we have the Chanukah Bagels and Judaica Bargains sale coming up.  What is this, you ask?  It’s another fun event brought to you by HHBJC Sisterhood.  Please join us on December 1, 2019 from 10:00 AM to 2:00 PM at the shul.  Have a bagel and coffee, or a danish and tea.  Schmooze with your friends.  There will be lots of time to buy presents for family and friends (and maybe even a present for yourself).  Marilyn Seidenfeld has been hard at work stocking our Gift Shop with new top-of-the-line items for children and adults that Sisterhood will be happy to sell.  What a great way to start the new month!

    Don’t forget we have Purim coming up in early March.  Sisterhood will be putting together baskets (shalach manos) as we usually do, and we can use your help.

    And for you Barry Manilow fans, we are planning a bus trip to the Museum of Jewish Heritage on March 15th to see a show he has written which will make its way onto Broadway shortly after.  Details to follow shortly.

    We are also planning a shared event with Men’s Club in the spring. 

    Thanks to all those of you who help plan many of these exciting events.

    Happy December!
