2021 March Sisterhood Message

While the weather is still teasing us by flip-flopping between winter and spring, it’s exciting to experience the anticipation that comes at this time of year. We’ve just enjoyed the silliness and merriment that accompanied Purim, albeit in an alternative way, but it was fun nonetheless. And as the world awakens for spring, so we are preparing for Pesach with both its new and familiar traditions, conflicting emotions of sorrow and happiness, and reminders of our place in the continuum of history. And perhaps with the arrival of the vaccines, we can once again say, “Next year in Jerusalem.”
Although we haven’t been able to meet in person, thank you to those who joined in our online offerings. And special recognition to our presenters for generously sharing their time and expertise with us. Grace Cooperstein was an inspiration, especially to us non-bakers, with her recipe for baked donuts, which may sound almost ‘healthy’ and are so delicious. And our appreciation to Lauren Cohen who provided us with an easily understood, well-researched model for understanding resilience and how to deal with stress. Yasher koach and thank you to both of them. We also enjoyed our Valentine’s program that showcased Dale Sharon speaking on Love and Passion and Art, virtually visiting some of the captivating love stories from works in the St.Louis Art Museum. Please join us in April, after Passover, when Tammy Arnow will show us how to bake challah and babka. 
Sisterhood has been less visible due to the virus, but our work continues behind the scenes, supporting the ECC, Mishloach Manot and the Capital Campaign. Thank you to our many donors who have continued to support us and enable us to contribute to the congregation and its many parts. 
A healthy and happy Spring and Pesach, 
Joyce & Susan
