As Spring has finally sprung, we are getting ready to hold one final end of season event. The Sisterhood of the Hollis Hills Bayside Jewish Center will hold an authentic “hoedown” in conjunction with Men’s Club on Sunday June 10th. Savannah Sky will begin the night with line dancing lessons at 5:30PM. followed by an authentic barbecue dinner. After dinner the hoedown will resume until 9:30PM. More information to follow.
We are already planning a host of new events for next year. Please join with us at our planning meetings to be announced.
JUST A QUICK UPDATE FROM SISTERHOOD
We are happy to inform you that our Challah bake is coming back, by popular demand! Details to follow. Also by popular demand, we are working toward the return of our Maine Rebbetzen, this time with her husband, who is both a rabbi and a klezmer musician. We are also exploring a Sisterhood-sponsored themed Shabbat. Last, but far from least, we are co-sponsoring an evening of square dancing fun with Men’s Club on Sunday, June 10th. Please mark your calendar.
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.
We know that the weather has been weird – but spring is truly almost here – and that means a great deal to Sisterhood.
We would love to have your help on Sunday morning February 25th at 10 am in the annex, as we put together a wonderful Israel-motif Purim “basket.” You get a bagel and coffee when you come to help. Please just let us know if you can make it, so that we have a bagel for you.
Wednesday evening February 28th we distribute our baskets after Megillah reading – and we can use your help then too.
In the months that follow, we will have our Women’s Seder, a specially-themed Sisterhood-sponsored Shabbat, and hopefully the return of the Maine Rebbetzen, who was such a success.
We will also be having our Challah bake again, and look forward to a square-dance evening with Men’s Club.
Details to follow. Be ready for meaningful time together, and lots of fun.
The Sisterhood wishes you all a happy Chanukah. Our Torah Fund Brunch honoring Linda Liederman drew so many people that we actually had to add two tables to accommodate those who came to celebrate with her.
December brought two special events. On Sunday, December 3rd, we held our annual holiday bazaar. Over 100 people came to shop the various vendors. It was good to see many new people shopping in their own neighborhood. We are already planning for next year’s bazaar to be even bigger and better. On Thursday, December 28th the nationally known humorist, Lisa Mayer, the Maine Rebbetzin, entertained the Hollis Hills community. We all laughed the evening away. It added welcome warmth on a cold winter’s night.
Our future plans include games day, our Purim project, a special themed Sisterhood-sponsored Shabbat, our unique Women’s Seder, and our back-by-demand Challah Bake. We’re looking forward to a square dance to be co-sponsored by Men’s Club on June 10th.
Also, don’t forget to buy your Mah Jongg card and your friends’ cards through Sisterhood. It is a small but very successful fundraiser for us, with thanks to Sandy Lukin.
As always, if you need a ride, just let us know.
