Sisterhood - April 2022

Can you believe Passover is upon us? Our Passover Seder

is Friday, April 15. Doors will open at 5 PM and the Seder will

begin at 5:30 followed by dinner. Rabbi David Schonblum will

officiate. Cost is $60 per person. Check the website under

Event Brochures for details. (https://www.pembrokepinesjewishcenter.

com/) Come and bring a friend or neighbor to share

in this joyous occasion. Everyone is welcome.


Our “Shabbat Across America,” celebrated by congregations

all over the US and Canada was a huge success with

50 people attending. Initiated by the National Jewish

Outreach Program in 1996 as part of many projects to convey

the relevancy and vibrancy of Judaism, everyone was delighted

to be back, enjoying Diamond’s excellent meal together.

Thanks to Sandi Rutner for handling reservations, Eileen

Cohen for checking folks in, and both for helping with table set

up. Mike Canter set up coffee and tea and made sure our

kitchen and new dishwasher were ready for business again.

Synagogue president, Merv Levin did the honors, leading the

motzi and Kiddush.


Our March Sisterhood meeting was a Sing Along with our

own songstresses, Trudy Lerner and her daughter Malka, who

is also our cantorial soloist. We had fun singing some old

favorites. Remember, the ha-Shem says we are to “Make a joyful

noise,” not sing on key! Thanks for another joyful memory.


April 12, at 10:30, our co-president, Rebecca Reinstein, will

share about the Jews of Ukraine, their history and present

plight. She worked there after independence and has maintained

ties with the synagogue in Lviv. Everyone is welcome

and we’ll share a light lunch.


In March we also enjoyed very successful programs with

FIU’s Lifelong Learning Institute. We learned about current

events and Jews in France and had our first Drawing for

Longevity sessions. Coming up, Piano Literature April 5,

Yiddish and the Jews, April 19 and The Mob and Corruption

in South Florida, March 26. These programs are all 10:30 to

12. At this writing we were not sure if “Drawing for Longevity”

would continue. Please check the website and Calendar.

Thanks to AvMed for being our main sponsor for these events.

You can still sign up and get your discount at 305-919-5900.


Sponsorship supports our regular monthly meetings, our

FIU programs, and our dinners. Ongoing sponsors include

AvMed and Village Medical Center. We have also received

generous donations from the Isadore and Patricia Wollowick

Family Foundation and an anonymous source, which we have

passed directly to Pembroke Pines Jewish Center.


Mary Dobrinsky has outdone herself and you owe it to yourself

to check out her costome jewelry in our Gift Shop. We

have many gifts, both secular and religious for any occasion.

Stop by before services on Friday night or call Barbara

Fischer for an appointment, 954-815-0848.
