Hello Ladies,

I’ve been working full time outside my home since the freeze, and still have plenty to do when I find time to tend to my plants that are hanging on by a leaf and a root. We have two TBT Sisterhood members who could benefit from our prayers and support.

Leah Eisen, wife of our past president, Stuart Eisen, is having surgery tomorrow/today, Wednesday March 3. Stuart’s working full time (more than full time when you include some long travel times).

It would be very comforting and helpful for Leah to have company during the day time hours while she’s home alone. During this first week after her surgery, it’s most important to have someone there to assist her and be sure she eats lunch. If you can sit with her any time within the next week or two, please let me know the day and time you’re available.

I’m also very sorry to report that Denise Gambino has contracted Covid-19. So far, I’m told it’s affecting her mildly. However, she cares for her husband and might not be able to cook for him. If you’re cooking for your family and can add a couple extra to your meal plan, I know they would be very grateful. I also understand they like the homestyle restaurant, Kelly’s. If interested in purchasing or contributing to gift cards so they can order meals to be delivered, please contact me.

Thanks in advance for stepping up to help our TBT Sisters.

Shalom and hugs, Nancy

The Temple Beth Tikvah Sisterhood is a vital part of the TBT community, providing for many of the temple’s needs. Each year annual dues are collected prior to the beginning of the Jewish new year at Rosh Hashanah. Annual Sisterhood dues are only $30.00 for members of TBT and $36.00 for non-members. These dues allow the Sisterhood to keep our temple kitchen stocked; provide paper goods, coffee and drinks for our Oneg Shabbats and other Holy Day celebrations, like our Rosh Hashanah Apples & Honey Oneg, Yom Kippur Break Fast and our Hanukkah Menorah Lighting Service. It also goes to purchase all of the ritual foods for our Passover Seder; put on the Annual Chicken Soup Cook-Off; purchase gifts for our B’nai Mitzvah kids; supplement other Sisterhood events and help our temple in so many ways.
