Sisterhood Dinner Kicks Off the Year with a Large Crowd

Snow fell outside, but warmth was abundant inside Simon Hall at Sisterhood’s annual Membership Dinner on Oct 27. The year’s kick-off event drew 145 women, enjoying the opportunity to catch up with old friends and meet new ones.

After a cocktail/shopping hour with many new boutiques, Rabbi Jay quieted the crowd long enough to say the Hamotzi, and we enjoyed an excellent dinner by La Morra (thank you to owner/member Jennifer Ziskin). Sisterhood’s BFF, Rabbi Michele Lenke, presented a good-natured montage about the meaning of Sisterhood. Each table completed a quick survey to learn more about each other – including some very funny answers to the prompt, “Have you ever met a famous person?” – before the dessert buffet.

Big kudos go to event co-chairs Kate Basch and Christine Shusterman, each chairing a Sisterhood event for the first time. (It’s not so hard! Contact Marcy Hirschen if you’d like to co-chair the spring Donor Dinner.)

Additional thank yous go to committee members Jane Blauvelt, Marcy Hirschen, Sarah Keselman, Margaret McConchie, Elise Miller, Jessica Post, and Marie Shapiro and volunteers Emily Aransky, Aimee Bierman, Lisa Channen, Elissa Grebber and Jane Spigle, with special thanks for Linda Rosenberg’s superb design skills and Roche Brothers for continued generosity.

Sisterhood is off to a great start, with 24 new members so far. Many new events and projects, as well as perennial favorites, are in the works.
