Creating Connections… By Ronni Metzger: It’s hard to believe that it is already December. This year certainly seems to have gone by very quickly. (In fact, it has moved so fast, that Hanukkah has overlapped with Thanksgiving!!) Although the end of the year is fast approaching, we still have great plans lined up for December. Here is a brief rundown of what is on the agenda for the next few weeks. On Monday evening, December 2nd at 7pm, Barbara Paris will be leading a monthly Rosh Chodesh group. We already have 20 women signed up! It promises to be an enlightening and meaningful evening. Thank you to Eileen Lieberman for generously offering to host the first get together. On Wednesday morning, December 4th at 9:15am, Shari Baum will lead another Baby & Me discussion with the ECC families at the JCC. On Saturday evening, Dec 7th at 6:30pm, the synagogue will be hosting its second annual Hanukkah Hoopla! A festive evening of food, drink, dancing and activities the whole family will enjoy. On Monday evening, December 9th, at 7pm, Barbara Paris will begin a new class, Living Torah at the JCCH. Enjoy a night of learning and exploration of ancient text to find meaning and relevance in our lives daily.
On Wednesday, December 11th at 12:30pm, Sisterhood is sponsoring a luncheon, featuring the renowned author, Letty Cottin Pogrebin, who will discuss her latest book, How to Be a Friend to a Friend Who's Sick. Do not miss this opportunity to hear this engaging writer, social activist, and founding editor of Ms. Magazin. When we come back from winter break, there are more programs that are being planned. Watch your emails for information about a Tu B’shevat Brunch with a JNF program and speaker on Sunday morning, January 12; a Twitter Workshop on Wednesday evening, January 15th with Melanie Baevsky; and an Israeli wine tasting on Wednesday evening, January 29th.
Please do not hesitate to contact me if you have any questions regarding the above events. I would love to hear your thoughts and suggestions.
