April at last! After a long, harsh winter, spring is finally here, and with it our joyous holiday of Passover. En-joy every moment of it with family and friends, and don't be sad as you sweep up the last of those matzo crumbs, for Sisterhood has something very special in store for you at the beginning of May.
Join us Sunday, May 5, 2014, for an extraordinary Rosh Chodesh Iyar. Iyar is known as the month of healing, so it is especially meaningful that our own Faye White-Willinger will discuss the essentials of first aid with us and demonstrate CPR (cardiopulmonary resuscitation), even helping a few of us have a go at it on manikins. A registered nurse, Faye earned her Bachelor of Science in nursing at the University of Pennsylvania and is a cer-tified instructor in CPR and first aid. She has spent twenty years in corporate nursing, and was on the scene and helped her co-workers cope with the trauma of 9/11. So bring your mother, your sisters, your friends, and be with us for this morning of camaraderie, good food, and sharing of vital information. You'll leave happy, well fed, and prepared for the emergencies that all of us pray will never happen, but that, unfortunately, fre-quently do.
Sisterhood wishes everyone a
Ziessen Pesach. May the sweet joy of this season touch every heart and every home.
A warm and wonderful circle of friendship and caring is waiting to welcome you. It's Sisterhood of Union Temple. We are women of all ages and interests who find joy in one another as we come together to celebrate our heritage, to socialize, to share, and to learn. As a member of Sisterhood, you will also be adding your voice to our national organization, Women of Reform Judaism. Together we work for the benefit of Jewish youth and education, for the empowerment of women as advocates on issues of vital importance to Reform Judaism, and to perform the mitzvah of bringing hope and help where they are needed.
Sisterhood has a great year planned: stimulating guest speakers, exciting expeditions, and our fun-filled auction and holiday sales. In addition, there are our popular Rosh Chodesh Seders, celebrating women's many roles in life and in keeping our religion, culture, and people alive through the ages.
We look forward to welcoming you to all our programs. You'll find that they are very special times of warmth, friendship, and sharing. So be good to yourself. Add your voice, your heart, and your hands to ours as together we reach out to help our temple, our community, and our world.
