Thursday, May 16 - Sisterhood General Meeting A Celebration of Israel
Thursday, May 23 – Alzheimer’s Educational Program
Sunday, June 9 – Annual Sisterhood LOVE Luncheon
Wow! Sisterhood Shabbat was so wonderful! The bios were inspirational, the songs were great, and it was fun to see everyone decked out in purple. A big Todah Rabah to the Shabbat Shalom committee, to all the readers, to MoTAS and to the well over 100 people who showed up to celebrate Sisterhood (and Ashlan Gee, the Bat Mitzvah girl) that night.
Thursday's general meeting (May 16) is going to be a lot of fun too. What are you making for the Israeli food competition? Hummus? Falafel? Shakshouka? Labneh? Couscous? Israeli salad? Schniztzle? The possibilities are endless. Come check out the celebration and see who wins the competition!
The Alzheimer's presentation the following Thursday May 23) will be a bit more somber, but still definitely worth the trip to the Temple. We hope to see you there!
And last, but definitely not least, put Sunday June 9 on your calendar for the annual Sisterhood LOVE luncheon, celebrating our
"Leaders, Organizers, Volunteers, and Empowerers". The entertainment will be fabulous and lunch will be a waffle bar - YUM!

In honor of Israeli Independence Day, we bring you the story of Ada E. Yonath, an Israeli crystallographer best known for her pioneering work on the structure of the ribosome. In 2009, she received the Nobel Prize in Chemistry (along with Venkatraman Ramakrishnan and Thomas A. Steitz) for her studies on the structure and function of the ribosome. She is the first Israeli woman to win the Nobel Prize (there have been ten Israeli Nobel laureates,) the first woman from the Middle East to win a Nobel prize in the sciences, and the first woman in 45 years to win the Nobel Prize for Chemistry.
Ribosomes translate RNA into protein and, because they have slightly different structures in microbes, when compared to eukaryotes, such as human cells, they are often a target for antibiotics. Yonath did pioneering work determining the structure of ribosomes, elucidated the modes of action of over twenty different antibiotics targeting the ribosome, illuminated mechanisms of drug resistance and synergism, deciphered the structural basis for antibiotic selectivity and showed how it plays a key role in clinical usefulness and therapeutic effectiveness. She also introduced a novel technique, cryo bio-crystallography, which became routine in structural biology and allowed intricate projects otherwise considered formidable. A most amazing woman!
