Sisterhood Past Events: Torah Fund 2019

Sisterhood Shabbat 2019

High praise is due to all the Sisterhood members who led prayers in Hebrew and English, gave the D’var Torah, chanted Torah and haftarah, served as gabbaim, and arranged the kiddush luncheon on Shabbat morning, May 11, 2019. Participants in the Sisterhood Shabbat were: Beatrice Barrish, Karen Berger, Mildred Brooks, Ariana Burrows, Marilyn Einheber, Janet Eisenberg, Faye Gilad, Helene Katz, Ilsa Kirchheimer, Hannah Klapholz, Catalina Kurschner, Susie Markowitz, Margo Kuno, Natalie Gabai, Rebecca Gellman, Lois Goldstein, Margo Gray, Sandy Kayson, Florence Leon, Jean Lisman, Annalee Mauskopf, Cynthia Silber, Fran Sion, Cecile Stern, Adele Superfine, Sharon Sussman, Sharon Tigai, Debra Zaslow and Honey Zozofsky.

Among the highlights of that Shabbat morning: Helene Katz’s first blessing at the Torah, with her co-President, Margo Kuno; the chanting by Sisterhood members of nearly the entire kriyah of the Torah portion (K’doshim), and the haftarah; leading the Musaf; referencing the matriarchs in the Amidah; the luncheon sponsored by Sisterhood; and the visit from Marsha Wasserman, Torah Fund Vice President of the Mid-Atlantic Region of Women’s League for Conservative Judaism.

Sisterhood Shabbat 2019 was chaired by Ariana Burrows and Hannah Klapholz.
