Latkes Already?!  

November is here. The cool, crisp days of autumn are fleeing. The days are getting shorter and colder, and winter winds are just around the corner. For Sisterhood, those winds will be blowing in much to look forward to. We’ll start by lighting up the winter with good deeds. Join us Sunday, November 23 at 9:30 AM, as we do our part on Mitzvah Day. We’ll be collecting and sorting old prayer books so that they can be delivered to the proper providers for sacred disposal.

Then, on Sunday, December 14 at 10 AM, we’ll warm up your winter with a terrific Chanukah program. So mark your calendar and get ready to celebrate with us. There will be great talk, a mystery raffle, and latkes galore! Before that, on Thurs-day, December 4, those of us who have already signed up, will view the Jew is h Museum’s “From the Margins” exhibit of paintings by Lee Krasner and Nor-man Lewis. We’ll meet with Gail Levine-Fried in the lobby later for a bite at the cafe and, after that, we’ll see The Powder and the Glory, a film about Elizabeth Arden and Helena Rubinstein, two powerful women who created an industry and forever changed the way we women see ourselves and present ourselves to the world around us.

If you were at our planning meeting, you know that we have a crowded roster of exciting pro-grams planned for the months ahead. Watch this column and your email to learn more about them. We hope that you will be with us for them all—and as a member. If you have not yet renewed your membership, please do so promptly, and if you are not yet a Sisterhood member, we hope you will join us now. It's as simple as writing a check for $40 to Sister-hood of Union Temple. You’ll be adding your voice, your heart, and your hands to ours, as together we reach out to perform tikkun olam. We cannot do it without you and your support.

Sisterhood wishes everyone a happy Thanksgiving. May our hearts, our homes, and our lives be filled with blessings.

-Barbara Brett, Secretary

Sisterhood of Union Temple  
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.
