Had enough of winter’s winds and ice and snow? Then join Sisterhood as we welcome March with its promise of at least the official start of spring. Be with us on Sunday, March 2, 2014, at 10 AM, for a lively morning of good food and great talk as our own Demetria Royals leads us in a discussion of Rebecca Walker’s autobiography, Black, White, and Jewish. Rebecca is the daughter of Pulitzer-prize-winning black author Alice Walker and white Jewish civil-rights lawyer Mel Leventhal, and her book is a fascinating window on the difficulties of straddling two worlds and trying to make a place for herself in both. If you haven’t read the book, that’s not a problem. You’ll still have much to contribute to the conversation, and you’re guaranteed a delightful morning wrapped in our warm circle of friendship.
Sisterhood’s circle of friendship extends beyond Union Temple as we reach out with Women of Reform Judaism to perform tikkun olam throughout our country and the world. Your membership dues and contributions help with countless worthy programs, from providing scholarships to feeding the hungry and holding out a helping hand to all Jews in need. So the next time you want to mark a special occasion or honor the memory of a loved one, we hope you’ll consider making a contribution to Sisterhood’s Happy Day Fund, Memorial Fund, or Rose Keit Flower Fund. It’s a beautiful way to help make our world a better place.
Sisterhood wishes everyone a happy Purim. May the courage and example of Esther bless and light our path through life.
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.
