Sisterhood Past Events: Torah Fund 2019

Women’s Seder 2019

We held a Women’s Seder on April 3, 2019. The leader was Rabbi Tiferet Birnbaum, the rabbi at Temple Har Zion in Mount Holly, NJ.  Rabbi Birnbaum is from the Sephardic tradition, and Sephardic melodies flowed through this beautiful event.

Expecting only about 50 women, over 80 showed up. The affair was enjoyable and meaningful.  The food was delicious and plentiful.  And we even made a healthy profit.

Thank you to all the wonderful ladies who helped make this event a success: Judy Baker, Fran Sion, Rebecca Gellman, Susie Markowitz, Cecile Stern, Karen Berger, Libby Goldman, Arianna Burrows, Hannah Klapholtz, Honey Zazofsky, Linda Resnick, and of course, co- Presidents Margo Kuno and Helene Katz.

Sharon Sussman was the Chair of the 2019 Women’s Seder.
