21st Annual Mah Jongg Tournament
The 21st Annual Congregation Shearith Israel SISterhood Mah Jongg Tournament, in memory of Tootsie Fonberg, z'l, was held on January 19, 2020. 112 people played in this year's tournament, making it the biggest one yet.
Congratulations to our grand prize winner, Avra Carr.
The annual SISterhood Shabbat, "Elevating Our Voices" was held on Friday, January 24th. A beautiful service was lead by Ellen Bond along with the Kol Neshama Choir, and supplemented with inspiration readings by Ann Cobert, Devora Rubin, Sharon Kowalsky, and Sandy Somer. Following services, the congregation enjoyed a delicious dinner.
The evening program continued with a bibliodrama discussing Parshat Shemot, in particular, the story of Moses being born and placed in a basket in the Nile. Thank you to Lita Marishak, Eileen Scheib, Allison Weiss, Carolyn Abrams, and Marna Edenson for exploring what the women of the story might have thought and helping us to create our own mishnah.
Thank you to our chair June Penkar, our VP Programming Kathi Silver, and our President Mireille Brisebois-Allen for helping to make the program a success.

The July book is The Floating Feldmans by Elyssa Friedland. Sink or swim. Too bad her kids didn’t get the memo. Between the troublesome family secrets, old sibling rivalries, and her two teenage grandkids, Annette’s birthday vacation is looking more and more like the perfect storm. Adrift together on the open seas, the Feldmans will each face the truths they’ve been ignoring–and learn that the people they once thought most likely to sink them are actually the ones who help them stay afloat.
Book group generally meets first Sunday of the month at 10:30 am using Zoom. Contact Diane Lifshen at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
