Beth Damon
"Fill your House with Flowers"

A Temple Sinai Sisterhood Virtual Zoom Celebration
    Friday June 19th at 1 - 2:30 pm

In this Celebration of Spring, Flowers and Hope, our own Beth Damon shares her passion for nature and flower arranging with Temple Sinai Sisterhood.

Beth will tour us through her historic home in Montpelier, Artful Lodging & Retreats, to showcase one of Flowerful Design's offerings she calls, "Fill your House with Flowers."

Then, Beth will take us step-by-step through the process of creating our own flower arrangements.

Here's what you'll NEED on hand:
"Destination" Vase or Vases (sometimes flowers break, so you can use these in a smaller vase).
Ability to work on Zoom with audio and video

We are a diverse, egalitarian, and inclusive community of Jews and interfaith families.  We joyfully embrace Judaism as a way of life through prayer, music, social action, celebrating Jewish holidays, lifelong learning, and life cycle events.  Through these activities, we seek to promote spiritual growth, moral values, and the social welfare of our community.

Temple Sinai strives to be a joyful, energetic, accepting, innovative, caring, and accessible faith community.  We choose to practice and teach Jewish traditions in our community, so that Jews and Judaism will continue to flourish, both in Vermont and in an ever-changing world.  We believe that support for a safe and prosperous State of Israel is an important part of our Jewish identity.
