2021 Hamentashen Update
For decades, volunteers have gathered in the IHC kitchen to roll, cut, fill and bake these sweet treats, one of Sisterhood’s most delicious smelling and tasting fundraisers of the year. After much discussion about whether we could safely bake this year, Sisterhood has decided that we will suspend our baking until (hopefully) next year. We are disappointed that we are not connecting people in the kitchen and supplying you with our bags of hamentashen. Sisterhood wishes you a Chag Sameach!! And…. Next Year In IHC’s Kitchen.

First Monday of each month at 6:30pm
Join us to discuss compelling articles in the “independent, Jewish, and frankly feminist magazine,” Lilith which reports on topics of “family politics, Jewish hair, race and reconciliation, new liturgies, good advice, fabulous fiction, parenting now, marriage equality, feminist philanthropy, sex, food—and so much more.”
Lilith Salon meets the first Monday of each month. The selected articles for each month’s discussion will be emailed to you in advance. Each lady is encouraged to order food and drink at their own expense. Conversation, of course, is free and quite stimulating. Email Andrea Burnett at email@example.com for more information and to get on the email list for updates.

Erev Shabbat Service closest to New Month
Rosh Chodesh, or head of the month, celebrates the new Jewish month and the appearance of the new moon. The connection between Rosh Chodesh and women dates back to biblical times when tradition tells us women refused to participate in the sin of the Golden Calf and were thus rewarded with Rosh Chodesh. According to kabbalistic teachings, women share a special relationship with the moon, and as such they have special reason to celebrate Rosh Chodesh. Each month a Sisterhood member will announce the Rosh Chodesh with a personal reading to celebrate women and share this observance with the community.
We are looking for volunteers to be Rosh Chodesh readers throughout the year. Readers are provided with an introduction and can select a passage, poem, or writing of her choice.
