LOVE lunch & Area Day
The LOVE brunch Sunday was just "LOVE-er-ly"! The speaker was a lot of fun, Tracey, our Area Rep, did an awesome job installing the board, the waffles were VERY yummy, and the look on Carol Bizar-Morton's face when she found out she was this year's Woman of the Year was priceless!
Except for our MahJongg Tournament on June 23, our LOVE lunch was the last Sisterhood event for the 2018-2019 year. However, the 2019-2020 year is getting off to a fabulous start with the WRJ Pacific District event called Area Day on July 14. Area Day is a day of growth and development with workshops on leadership, spirituality and fun. The keynote speaker will be Ariella Loewenstein, Deputy Regional Director, ADL Los Angeles, who will be speaking on “Anti-semitism in our Contemporary Society” - what a timely topic! Workshops include an art project, a book discussion, martial arts, event planning, social justice, torah study, tech tools, and much, much more. Go to the Area Day website (https://www.wrjpacific.org/southern-california-area-day.html), click on the Individual Online Registration Form button, and see which workshops sound most interesting to you.
TAS Sisterhood knows that Area Day is an amazing day, and supports our members attending by reimbursing the registration fee. Contact Erika Barnathan for more information about Area Day.
Are you familiar with the ADL, the Anti-Defamation League? ADL is a leading anti-hate organization. Founded in 1913 in response to an escalating climate of anti-Semitism and bigotry, its timeless mission is to protect the Jewish people and to secure justice and fair treatment for all. Today, ADL continues to fight all forms of hate with the same vigor and passion. ADL is a global leader in exposing extremism and delivering anti-bias education, and is a leading organization in training law enforcement. ADL is the first call when acts of anti-Semitism occur. ADL’s ultimate goal is a world in which no group or individual suffers from bias, discrimination or hate.
Not only does the ADL fight anti-semitism both here and abroad, they promote immigrant & refugee rights, LGBTQ rights, women's equity, race and racial justice, Israel, and much more. In 2008, the ADL helped prevent an assassination attempt on President-elect Barak Obama. Ariella Loewenstein's keynote speech and follow-up workshop at Area Day are sure to provide an enlightening look at the current state of anti-semitism in today's society. We hope you can be there!
