Sisterhood News

Hello Sisters,

I hope that each of you spent time reflecting on that which you are grateful during this Thanksgiving week. I reflect daily, and my gratitude seems to magnify for me during the holidays.
Today is Erin Moeller’s birthday and we hope she’s been celebrating all week long!
We’re wishing Christine Paul a great week as her birthday is this Friday, December 6th.
Other birthdays this month include Friends of TBT Sisterhood, Jessica Self (Dec. 17th) and Nancy Harris (Dec. 18). Be sure to wish all the ladies a Happy Birthday!
I’ve also been thinking of many who are grieving recent losses or dealing with serious illnesses at this time. Please join me in continuing to keep the following people close to your heart and in your prayers:
*Jerry Cahn whose wife and our beloved TBT Sister Jean, who passed away last month
*Harriet Hayes, whose mother, Gail, passed away just week’s ago, and is staying strong for Emily too
*Emily Hayes, who is undergoing chemo weekly to fight breast cancer
*Denise Gambino, whose husband continues to fight to get well
If you will, keep them in your hearts and prayers, and reach out to them as well to let them know their TBT family cares.
January Birthdays will be here before we know it…

Shelly Frank Vickers and her husband Scott, will celebrate their anniversary on Jan. 27
This Friday, December 6th, Deb Nowinski will direct a play performed by the students of TBT. It’s sure to be a fun filled shabbat service!
Additionally this Friday night your Sisterhood will have the gift shop open for business for you to get ready for Channukah. Please come early (before services begin to shop)! The store will also be open on Sunday morning from 9:00-12:00.


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.
