Raffle and Door prize
We wish to celebrate Hadassah Women - Planners, Doers and Empowered Healers of the world. Join us for an afternoon of tea, scones, finger sandwiches, light savory snacks and interesting and charming company. Reservations are $18 for adult members, spouses and friends. Contact Roberta Eichenholz at 301.980.2063 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Baking will be done at the synagogue on March 14, 15 and 18, two shifts each day, 9-12pm and 1-3pm. If there are enough people interested, we can do an evening on Thursday, March 14, 5-7 pm.
We are a B'nai Israel program which delivers vegetarian meals to congregants who have recently come home from the hospital or rehab facility, are recovering from acute illness, or celebrating the birth of a baby. Since last April, we have delivered approximately 20 meals and the program has been well received.
We are planning to expand the Sunshine Meals program! Congregants who are chronically ill or who live alone and have little chance to get out will be offered monthly visits with a meal, snack or simply a chance to visit with one of us. We'll also be making special holiday visits during Rosh Hashanah and Chanukah.
Please consider volunteering to visit these special congregants as part of our "Sunshine Team." A brief training session, which will be offered by Rabbi Julie prior to the start of visits, is all that's required. (The training session will be scheduled as soon as we have a list of volunteers.) Any meals or snacks will be provided by Sunshine Meals and a monthly commitment is not required. Contact Rabbi Julie or myself to help make a difference in our community. You'll be surprised at how good that can feel.
Do you need a Sunshine Meal? Do you know a fellow congregant who might appreciate visits from our team? Requests can be made to Rabbi Julie, by calling the synagogue office 910.762.1117, or by contacting me at email@example.com
or 706.832.3048. Participation is voluntary and the privacy of our congregants is of the utmost importance. -Michelle Bannon
