Sisterhood - May 2022

Angelo is coming in May! Our newly reelected Pembroke

Pines Commissioner, Angelo Castillo, will be our speaker at

the Tuesday, May 10th meeting at 10:30. Everyone is invited

to come and here the latest about what is happening in our

city and to ask him questions. We will serve a light lunch.

Please call Rebecca Reinstein at 305-606-9312 to let her

know you are coming. There is no charge for the lunch but

we want to order enough for everyone.


May 1, from 10 – 5, enjoy the unique items at our Craft

Fair, with 30 artistic vendors offering their handmade wares.

There is no charge to attend and food will be offered for sale

to nourish you while you shop. Come and treat yourself to

something beautiful or purchase a gift for that special grandchild

who’s graduating.


Osher Lifelong Learning Institute (OLLI) from FIU is continuing

its successful program here in the Village and open to

everyone. Join the lecture series April 26, May 3, 17, 24, &

Our March Card Party brought out 75 women and men to

play Pan, Mah Jongg, Canasta, 313, and Hand and Foot,

enjoy socializing, and having fun. Thanks to the team who

made the day a success: Sally Gevis took care of reservations,

worked with Diamond on the lunch, and oversaw many

of the preparations. Barbara Fischer, Gisela Wolf, and Sandi

Rutner distributed lunch. Dennie Derringer and Bobbi Crespi

checked folks in. Sally Gevis and Ruth Kirschner ran the raffle.

Mike Canter set up coffee and tea and, with Merv Levin,

set up the tables. Merv helped with clean up. We’re inspired

to do another one in the future.


Passover also saw a great turnout on April 15, with 66 people

and an inspiring Seder conducted by Rabbi David

Schonblum. Dinner was catered by Diamond Kosher

Caterers. We enjoyed being together as one big “family,”

singing together, and continuing to build strong connections

here in the Village. Everything was made possible because

of the hard work of Barbara Senfeld who took reservations

and organized groups. Mike Canter and Larry Moss set up

the tables. Dennie Deringer and Evelyn Milian set the tables.

It was a warm and wonderful celebration.


Our April Sisterhood meeting featured Co-President

Rebecca Reinstein with a slide presentation and update on

the history of the Jews in Ukraine and their current plight.

Rebecca taught at the Lviv Institute of Management, lived

with a Ukrainian family, and was involved with the Jewish

community there. She maintained her contacts and gave us

a unique perspective on the news.

Dennie Deringer honoring her great granddaughter, Layla

Rose; Karen Jaret; Merv Levin, celebrating Mother’s Day;

Geri Rachlin, honoring her 3 great grandchildren; Gilda

Sacks, asking G-D for world peace; Tudi Winkler remembering

Day/Father’s Day luncheon co-sponsored with the Men’s

Club. The International Singers will entertain. Save the date.
