Wishing You All a Happy and Sweet New Year
Women’s League International and our Region will continue to offer events and programs on Zoom. Here are some programs /workshops from WL that have either already occurred or are upcoming:
Reminder: As of Tuesday, July 6th, Makom B’Yachad changed from 5 days to 3 days a week. Tuesday, Wednesday, and Fridays. at 12 PM Noon.
This high holiday time please make a choice to participate in this program this coming year. Do you like to sing, teach, help with technology, or more during Daily Psalms Study, Pirkei Avot and Kaddish? Lend your talents! All are welcome, and there are many spots available.
Registration for Hebrew classes opened and filled within 24 hours of opening. It’s wonderful how popular this class is!
A membership workshop was held on August 11, 2021.
The Education Committee had a Meet and Greet on August 26, 2021. Two time slots were offered at 1PM and 7PM, led by Ellen Kaner Bresnick and Julia Loeb. They had asked for program ideas from sisterhoods and regions.
Chairs for the different portfolios had the opportunity to introduce themselves and talk about their specific jobs in Women’s League. The ones we tend to see and hear about most often are WL Reads, Social Action’s latest project, Stock the Shelves, and the Program Idea of the Week, which is in the WL Weekly message. Believe me there are many more ideas. They are only a click away.
Gary Rosenthal’s Hiddur Mitzvah Project will be held on Thursday, October 7th @ 7:30 PM ET. Registrations can be made through Wizevents. Reservations will be required to receive a kit. However, our members may join the Zoom to enjoy the program even if they choose not to make a piece of art. RSVP deadline is September 9th in order to guarantee delivery. Questions?
