Tomorrow is our Purse Exchange Event! I haven't been to one before but it sounds like great fun. Bring a gently used purse (or two or three) and leave with a different one, and maybe some GOODIES!
See you at 7pm in the Social Hall.
THIS SUNDAY IS THE SCREENING OF J'ACCUSE
A CRY FROM THE DEATH PITS OF LITHUANIA
Efrat Gafni asked me to send information to everyone about a movie that will be screened this weekend at Ramat Zion, Sunday 1/8 at 4pm.
A CRY FROM THE DEATH PITS OF LITHUANIA
NORTH AMERICAN PREMIERE
The Lithuanian Jewish community was decimated in the Holocaust, when over 220,000 Jews, more than 95% of the Jewish population, were murdered. A key player in the massacre was Lithuanian nationalist Jonas Noreika, who today is revered as a national hero, and protected by the contemporary government’s official policy and infamous Lithuanian Genocide and Resistance Research Centre. In this galvanizing documentary, we follow the experiences of two dissident campaigners: Grant Gochin, whose family was murdered by Noreika; and Silvia Foti, a brave Lithuanian woman fighting for the truth, whose grandfather was Jonas Noreika. Together, the two push against Lithuania’s systemic Holocaust denial in an attempt to bring justice to victims and insist that the truth be told.
Here are some more links that shed light on the story -

Hello! and Apologies!
I know I JUST emailed everybody, but there's something very important I forgot to add!!
Mel Birken has been giving tours of the New Year's Day Parade floats for many years, and she's back at it this year! Did you know that?
One of the groups building a float is the Lion's Club. They have some amazing programs. One of them is providing eyeglasses and hearing aids worldwide! They acquire donated glasses, repair them, and travel to areas of need. They examine eyes and distribute needed glasses all at no charge! She has asked us to bring our old eyeglasses to donate to the Lion's Club. What a fantastic opportunity for us! I know I have many, many pairs of old glasses lying around.
So.... one wrapped present, one unwrapped item for the women's shelter, and old glasses.
I feel really good about this, donating to really good things and having a fun night. And dessert, of course.
It's better to give than to receive!!!
This Thursday the 15th is our annual Hanukah party and gift exchange!
We are doing things a little differently this year, so be sure to read this whole email and review the flyer! We are asking everyone to bring a new, unused, wrapped gift that will fit in a grocery store paper bag AND an item for a women's shelter. The flyer has a list of ideas for items needed at the shelter.
So..... one gift valued at $15-20 (no white elephants please)..... and one item for the women's shelter, not wrapped.
We will have Hanukah desserts, a raffle auction, and a "wishing well."
This is such a fun event, and this year we are focusing on the fact that "it's better to give than to receive"!!!
Our Fabulous Holiday Boutique is tomorrow Sunday (11/20) from 10am to 3pm! And part of the fantastic day is the bake sale. We need people to make baked goods we can sell tomorrow!
Please cut the delicious items into portions and put in a ziploc type bag. One portion per baggie. If there are nuts, please indicate that on the bag. If they are gluten free or sugar free, please indicate that as well. Feel free to put on an address label to indicate which you donated!
This is a big event for Sisterhood, it's lots of fun for the vendors (like me) and all the great volunteers!
See you tomorrow,
