What would you do if you learned that the person you love more than life itself was destined to die soon and he or she asked you to help ease the inevitable end? Would you do it? Could You do it? Join Sisterhood on Sunday, June 1st, at 10 AM, as we discuss BETWEEN TWO ETERNI-TIES by Barbara Brett, a novel that explores that heart-rending question. Full disclosure: I'm theauthor of this love story of a Jewish marriage, which is set right here in Brooklyn, and I'd love tohear your views. Originally published by Avon to a rave review in Publishers Weekly, the novelhas recently been re-issued as an e-book and paperback and is available on-line. Haven't read the book? Not to worry. You are sure to have a lot to add once the discussion gets going.
It's our last program of the season, and we'll be celebrating Rosh Chodesh Sivan, the month that brings us the joyful holiday Shavout, with a sumptuous brunch and an exciting raffle. We'll also be holding a brief electionand asking for your ideas for future programs. We hope that you'll have lots of suggestions and that you willwant to submit your name or nominate someone as an officer or member of the board. Not yet a member ofSisterhood? Not a problem. You can join on the spot or wait for the Sisterhood bill, which will be mailed out this month.

Sisterhood wishes everyone a happy summer. You can add to the pleasures of the long, lazy days of July and August by reading THE SISTERS WEISS by Naomi Ragen. At our first program in the fall we'll be discussingthis intriguing novel about two sisters who flee from their Chassidic family. See you then!
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.
