At our June meeting, the members present elected our
new Co-Presidents, Dennie Deringer and Rebecca
Reinstein by acclimation. We honored outgoing Co-
Presidents Selma Karp and Sandi Rutner, who have given
so much service during the three years since the merger, and
years of service before that at Century Pines Jewish Center.
During the pandemic, Sandi was crucial in organizing our
drive-through meals. Returning Board Members are Flo
Brown, Mary Dobrinsky, Barbara Fischer, Sally Gevis, Ruth
Kirschner, Ruby Lewis, Evelyn Millian, Lani Moss, Geri
Rachlin, Arlene Stauber, and Gisela Wolf.
We’re taking a break! Sisterhood will not meet in July. We
are roaring back in August with our regular meeting, August
9 at 10:30. Co-President Rebecca Reinstein will report on
her visit to the Memorial Scrolls Center in London. We have
a Holocaust Torah on permanent loan from the Center. On
her visit she learned more about these remarkable Torahs,
what other congregations are doing to honor their Torahs,
and more about the history of our own Torah. Everyone is
welcome. Diamond’s will provide a light lunch. Although
there is no charge, call Sally Gevis (954-437-7972) to register
so we have a meal for you.
We know how you enjoy Shabbat Dinner. Get ready for a
special one, August 19, at 5PM, followed by services at 7:30.
Barbara Senfeld (561-716-4151) will take your reservations.
If you will be paying by check, please put all the checks for
your table plus your food choices in one envelope and put it
in the Sisterhood box. If paying by the DONATE button, note
your entre choice and phone.
