Sisterhood News

Sisterhood had a wonderful Paid-up Membership Dinner on September 12 at Akashi Japanese Restaurant. The food was delicious and everyone enjoyed visiting after a long summer break. During the meeting portion of the evening we had a treasurer’s report from Sisterhood Treasurer, Andrea Levine, and the 40 members in attendance approved the budget for the 2019-20 year. 

For Sisterhood’s annual gift to the congregation, the membership approved money to install a new exit door from the synagogue store room that will comply with the Houston fire-code. Andrea Levine was named Sisterhood Member of the Year for 2019 in recognition of all her support for Sisterhood and Sisterhood projects throughout the years. We would like to thank Leslie Schwanke and Helene Gersch for coordinating this enjoyable evening. 

If you have not paid your dues, it’s not too late to join. Just mail your dues to Andrea Levine, Sisterhood Treasurer, 16020 El Camino Real, Houston, TX 77062. Annual Sisterhood dues are $20 for new members, $36 for synagogue members and $40 for non-synagogue members.

Sisterhood is very busy providing service to the synagogue during the High Holidays. Ida Diamond and Tracey Manusov chaired the Sisterhood committee to provide refreshments for the Selichot service. This year’s Break Fast is being coordinated by Ida Diamond and Susan Kitmacher. When they call you to help provide food for the Break Fast, please answer “yes” even if you don’t plan to attend. This is a mitzvah to help provide the Break Fast for those congregants who would like to enjoy the comradery of our annual Break Fast after services. Sisterhood would like to thank Ida, Tracey, and Susan for ensuring that refreshments are provided for our congregation during these High Holiday events.

Because of our busy High Holiday schedule, there will not be a Sisterhood meeting during October. Our next meeting will be November 7. We hope to see you there.
