Sisterhood Speaks (October 2014)

L’shanah Tova, Sisterhood members and friends! A New Year is upon us! The Board of Sisterhood wishes you a wonderful year, a healthy year, a peaceful year.

If you are already a member of sisterhood, we hope that you will join us at the Paid Up Membership Dinner on October 23. The evening will start at 6:00 p.m. with a half hour of snack and social time. A buffet dinner and speaker will follow at 6:30 p.m., provided by the Sisterhood for paid up members. If you haven’t yet joined, you can mail a check to Sisterhood of Temple Sinai for $30 and send it to the Temple Office, or just let us know you are coming and pay at the door. Please RSVP by Wednesday, October 15, so that we can prepare for the evening. Contact Dot Revzon at new-message24, or by calling the temple office, 860/561-1055.

The last weekend of October, on Sunday the 26th and Monday the 27th, will be Rummage Sale weekend! If you want to help by sorting and preparing for the sale, contact us at new-message24. What we need most is donations, so please start to clean out the closets for clothing, for kitchen stuff, kid’s toys, games, books, and small electronic appliances. Bring them all to the Temple on Sunday morning beginning at 8:00 a.m., and we will help bring them into the sale. If you can label bags of clothing as to male and female, it’s a big help! We will again be collecting electronics both for sale and for recycling, so please mark your non-working electronics that you want recycled and we will put them in a separate pile. Come and shop from noon–3 p.m. on Sunday, or from l0 a.m.–1 p.m on Monday. We have the best bargains!

On Tuesday, November 4, the Sisterhoods of Congregation Beth Israel and Temple Sinai will get together at Beth Israel at 6:00 p.m. for our annual joint dinner. Each year we have enjoyed each others’ company and then done a Social Action project together. This year will be “A Vote and a Coat”. The dinner will be on Election Day, so make sure you vote before coming, and then we will collect winter garments that can be donated to the community. Hats, gloves, scarves and, of course, kindly used coats will be collected so that others can be warm this winter. The menu for the evening will be salads and desserts by Temple Sinai and the main course by Congregation Beth Israel. Please call Dot at 860/561-1055 if you are coming, or email us at new-message24 and let us know if you are bringing a dessert or a salad. We will need to let Beth Israel know how much to prepare, so RSVP by Tuesday, October 28.

It will be a busy time this autumn! And it will be a very good time, when we all get together at our Sisterhood events! See you soon!
