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.
To order a dinner box, please go to our Sisterhood website at:
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.
BINGOTINI UPDATE -- COVID NOTIFICATION
Thank you for attending Bingotini 2022. We hope you had a wonderful time!
We need to let you know that unfortunately one of the attendees that evening recently tested positive for Covid-19. Based on incubation time frames, it is unlikely that this individual contracted the virus at the time of our event. However, you may have been exposed at that time.
If you are experiencing any symptoms, we urge you to get tested.
Please also advise any friends or other guests who may have attended the event, and for whom we may not have an email address. Your health and the health of your loved ones, is our primary concern.
We look forward to seeing you all at our upcoming events!
Thank you for RSVP'ing to our 2022 Sisterhood Seder coming up this Thursday 04/07/2022. Just a brief update as to new protocols that we are implementing for the evening.
We have been informed that unfortunately there have been some positive Covid tests amongst out TAS community. As a result, we will be requiring that all people attending the in-person Seder present a negative Covid test result, along with proof of vaccination, before entering the Social Hall. Please take an at-home rapid test within 24 hours of the event.
If you do not have access to an in-home test, you can pick one up at TAS, Test kits will be available, at no charge, in the TAS lobby from 9 a.m to 3 p.m. on Tuesday and Wednesday.
If you are bringing a guest, for whom we do not have an email address, please be sure to pass this information on to them as well.
We ask your patience at check-in, as this process may take a bit longer than originally anticipated before we can begin our program.
In the event that you choose not to attend, or do not obtain a negative test result, your fee for this event will be refunded upon request. Please allow us a minimum of 2 weeks after the event to process any refunds.
We look forward to seeing you all!
