Take care and stay safe,
On Thursday, May 20, 2021, we are meeting for our election and iris folding craft project. The envelopes filled with the materials for the craft project are now ready for pick up. The best way to arrange pick up is to call Karen Jaye at 818-203-0802 to arrange a time with her and she will leave an 9” x 12” envelope with your name on it on a table in front of her garage. This is the same house and system most people utilized to obtain the materials for the tile project back in November. If Karen is unavailable you may also contact Dori Hoffman at 818-606-2084 and she will work with you to arrange an alternate pick up site. If anyone who can’t pick up the materials would still like to participate, we will work to get the materials to her. We want as many people as possible to join us for the activity. Participants will need to have scissors and Scotch tape available and we recommend you have a ruler. Looking forward to seeing you soon.
Dorothy B. Hoffman and Karen Jaye
Our Women's Wisdom event is this coming Sunday, May 2, at 10:30am. If you haven't RSVP'd yet, don't delay another minute! Here's a link to use to RSVP: https://www.tassisterhood.org/womenswisdom.html
The event will be a spiritual interactive session where we will explore our inner selves, tap into our personal world, and find meaning in our lives.
We look forward to seeing you Sunday!
Take care and stay safe,
Unfortunately I was mistaken regarding the voting procedure for our next meeting. Nominations from the floor closed once the presentation of the Slate was completed. However, we still need you to attend the May craft event, as we need a quorum for the vote to go forward. And so, please review the slate and make sure to support your new officers.
There was a typo on the email address for RSVPs to this event. The correct email address is email@example.com
You mud RSVP to this event in order to attend. The Committee has done an amazing job and it promises to be an inspiring morning.
I received numerous inquiries as to why our announcement of Helen’s passing did not mention that she was Erika Barnathan’s mother. This was done deliberately in an effort to preserve the privacy of the family. As you know Erika is a TAS Sisterhood Past President and has been active in many other aspects of both our Sisterhood and the Women of Reform Judaism. Many Sisterhood members count her as a close friend, and know this is a difficult time for her and her family. Erika, her husband Lee and their daughter Elise, as well as the other members of the family have asked for privacy at this time. And so, feel free to send a tribute through Mel Birken, but please hold off on phone calls or visits. Our hearts are with them during this difficult time.
Please see the TAS announcement for information as to funeral arrangements and Shiva services.
Take care and stay safe,
In case you were unable to attend our 04/15/2021 event, we would like to provide you with a look at the 2020-2021 slate of officer proposed by our nominating committee. Please see below.
We will be voting on the new Board at our May meeting on 05/20/21 prior to our craft event.
We can still take nominations from the floor if anyone else is interested in one of our positions, but you will need to be present at the meeting to be nominated.
MAH JONGG TOURNAMENT
Please recall that our virtual Mah Jongg tournament is going forward on April 30 to Mat 2. Please contact Phyllis Bigelson for more details. See flyer.

It is with a very heavy heart that I have to advise that one of our wonderful Friends of Sisterhood, Helen Goldstein, has passed away. For those of you who knew Helen, you know she was a bright light with a lovely soul, very dedicated to her children and grandchildren. She will be missed by all who knew and loved her. If you would like to send a tribute to the family, please contact Mel Birken at firstname.lastname@example.org, and she will assist you.
Take care and stay safe,

CAN YOU BELIEVE IT’S MARCH!
Spring is just around the corner, and with it comes Passover.
Our renowned Sisterhood Seder is scheduled for March 18, 2021 via Zoom (see flier). Since we are virtual this year, there is no chance of selling out, so if you have never been able to attend our Seder in prior years, this is the time to do it. Please follow the registration instructions on the flier to reserve your space. It’s always a good time, and this year should be no exception!
Our nominating committee is forming and will be considering who will be filling the upcoming vacancies on the Sisterhood Board. If you are interested in any of the opening positions, or know someone who is, please contact Kathy Barker at firstname.lastname@example.org. Open positions are:
Religious Observances VPs
Ways and Means VP
Even if you have not served on the Board previously, please contact Kathy if you are interested in serving Sisterhood. You won’t regret it!
In honor of March being Women’s History Month, the following quote seems most appropriate:
In discussing her role as Wonder Woman, Israeli actress Gal Gadot said:
“I wanted to show that women are empowered and strong and don’t have to be saved by some male hero, but they can take care of themselves using their intelligence and their power.”
Hope to see you at the Seder on March 18!
Our next general meeting is Thursday, 02/18/2021 at 7pm
