WE HAVE SOME A-MAY-ZING EVENTS COMING UP!
Hi Everyone -
We have some wonderful events coming up ...Starting this week with:
Sisterhood Shabbat - This Friday - 05/13/22
Our Administrative VP, Efrat Yakobi, and her incredible team have a different and engaging Sisterhood Shabbat planned for us this week. We will meet at the Social Hall at 5:30pm for dinner (bring your own or order at our website), for an engaging program prior to services.
Then, at 7pm our own Rabbi Becky and Cantorial Soloist Elizabeth will lead us in a Sisterhood-Focused Shabbat Service.
Please RSVP at www,tassisterhood.org/shabbat, to let us know you will be there, and order dinner if you would like.
OUR MAY MEETING IS MAY 19
Our final Sisterhood General Meeting for this fiscal year will be held on Thursday, May 19, 2022 at 7pm in the Social Hall. We will start out by electing our new Sisterhood Executive Board for the 2022-2023 fiscal year.
Then, Rabbi Becky will host a lively discussion on Interfaith Religion. The evening will focus on the distinctions, differences and similarities between the different aspects of Judaism: reform, conservative, orthodox. It promises to be a lively and informative evening.
And just because the fiscal year is ending doesn't mean we are done! Our annual recognition of our Leaders Organizers Volunteers Extraordinare (L.O.V.E) Event, along with the installation of our new Board will take place on June 26! More details to come!
Looking forward to seeing you on Friday!
Join us for Sisterhood Shabbat on May 13, 2022. This year, in addition to joining us for services celebrating our Sisterhood, you are invited to join us before services for dinner and a Sisterhood Shabbat program. For dinner you can order a sandwich from Corner Bakery at a cost of $13.50. Order through Sisterhood and it will be delivered and will be waiting for you at the Temple; or you can bring your own dinner.
Dinner starts at 5:30 pm and the Program will start at 6 pm. Services are at 7 pm as usual. Feel free to bring your family.

We would love for you to tell us you are coming, even if you are not ordering dinner. Use the same link for your RSVP.
APRIL GENERAL MEETING -- THURSDAY -4/21/22
7 PM VIA ZOOM
Unfortunately, the meeting we had planned for April had to be cancelled due to Passover. However, our By-Laws require that we hold a meeting in April in order to present to the General Membership, the proposed slate of nominees for next year's Board.
Our Nominating Committee, led by Kathy Barker, has been hard at work putting together an amazing slate of talented women to serve your Sisterhood for the 2022-2023 year. We will also be taking nominations from the floor for anyone who wants to throw their hat into the ring. Elections will be held at the beginning of our May meeting.
This meeting will be very short, but anyone who has an announcement to make to the general membership, is welcome to participate. Please contact either Cheryl or Joann and let us know what you want to discuss so we can add you to the agenda.
In preparation for Sisterhood Shabbat which will take place on May 13, we would like you to send us pictures of Sisterhood people and events. We are particularly interested in pictures from before 2017.
Please indicate who is in the pictures and when they were taken. Please either email the pictures to Efrat or put the pictures on Google Drive and email Efrat a link.
We need the pictures by May 1, 2022. Please send them in as soon as possible.
Thank you for your help.

Please join us on Thursday for a Zoom meeting with Daniel and make sure you are protected from prying eyes,
See you Thursday!
Our January meeting was about all about Tu B'Shvat! Rivka Ben Daniel, our speaker, taught us lots of interesting things about the holiday itself, about eating vegetarian, presented some recipes, and encouraged us to write poems about our favorite fruits and vegetables. The presentation was excellent! Here are the poems we composed and the recipes she presented.
Ode to a tangerine
I love the tangerine
So easy to peal, so easy to eat
And just the right size for an afternoon treat
Ode to an apricot
Oh, apricot how I love you
A vegetable you are not,
You are an apricot
A fruit so orange, so sweet and delicious
Take out the pit and envelope your lips around its juicy goodness
Not too large; not too small
It’s the perfect fruit for all
Ode to Strawberries
Strawberries, the summer fruit you can eat all year round
Ode to a sweet juicy peach
Golden color embellished with pink overtones
With a gentle slice of a knife
It reveals the delicious supple, juicy flesh
As the sweet nectar runs down my chin
I savor the sweet taste of this distinctive flavor
Ode to 2 fruits and 2 vegetables
Don't eat an unripe persimmon
You'll swear your tongue has hair
Costco has wonderful pineapple
The price went up but it's still fair
Zucchini can be long or round
It can also be yellow or green
Artichokes are a little more work
But the heart is a prize to be seen
