A short poem in honor of Sisterhood Shabbat.
Take time to think—thoughts are the source of power.
Take time to play—play is the secret of perpetual youth.
Take time to read—reading is the fountain of wisdom.
Take time to pray—prayer can be a rock of strength in time of trouble.
Take time to love—loving is what makes living worthwhile.
Take time to be friendly—friendship gives life a delicious flavor.
Take time to laugh—laughter is the music of the soul.
Take time to give—any day of the year is too short for selfishness.
Take time to do your work well—pride in your work, no matter what it is, nourishes the ego and the spirit.
We hope you take time to pray with us on Friday, May 11, 7:30pm at our Sisterhood Shabbat.
And on Thursday, May 17, take time to be friendly! Join us for the Sisterhood May meeting at 7pm.
Don't you love the mouse?!
If the Temple nominating committee didn't call, and you would like to pitch in and make a difference, why not volunteer to be on the Sisterhood Board or on a Sisterhood committee? Being on the board or on a committee is a great way to strengthen friendships and your help can make Sisterhood even better and more successful.
Perhaps you would like to make sure our communication to members and Friends is excellent. Perhaps you have a fundraising idea. Perhaps food is your strength. Perhaps you want to connect with younger members. Or maybe your forte is delegating responsibilities to others. Whatever it is, we welcome your help.
Margie , we would love for you to help make Sisterhood fantastic. If you would be willing to be part of our amazing team, please let us know.
Mark your calendars!

We will eat Israeli food and revel in Israeli trivia and have fun with our friends.

For any organization, it's very important to recognize and thank everyone who pitches in to make it a success. The hard part about doing this is that someone inevitably gets missed. So we sometimes avoid naming everyone who should be thanked, so that we won't cause hard feelings.
And there are so many events that people have pitched in to make a success! But we do really appreciate everyone who worked hard to make the fundraisers like the Honey, the MahJongg Cruise, Bingotini, the Holiday Boutique, the MahJongg Tournament, Pala Casino, Mah Jongg Cards and the Author presentation happen. But fundraisers are just the tip of the iceberg! Where would we be without our Oneg hostesses, our Judaica shop hostesses, our Seder committee, our Extended Kiddush chair and workers, the Sisterhood Shabbat committee, the Women of the Wall committee, the Volunteer Recognition lunch committee, our Chai Mitzvah chair, our Rosh Chodesh chair, our Tribute chair, our past-presidents, WRJ board members, and all our elected Sisterhood Board members and their committees?
Also important are those who donate money to make Sisterhood a success. A big hip-hip-hurray for all of our Friends of Sisterhood. Plus all of our oneg sponsors and those who joined Sisterhood at the Sponsor or Patron levels. Everyone who "rounded up" their purchases at the Holiday Boutique or donated to Sisterhood "just because." And those who sponsored events like the Women of the Wall event.
And we very much appreciate everyone who makes the statement that Sisterhood is important by becoming a member or a Friend of Sisterhood.
How did we do? Did we miss anyone? Let us know who we left out!
