MACHON 2017/2018
MACHON 2017
JOIN US FOR A SPIRITUAL JOURNEY 

Hello! I hope you are having a relaxed, delightful and worthwhile summer. Before we know it, the long hot, hazy  humid, days of August  will turn a bit cooler, the High Holidays will arrive and  our MACHON year will begin anew.. I'm very  excited because this year our studies take an unusual path, rather than our normal cerebral study  of Jewish history, and current events,etc., we  will look inward and expand our spiritual health, using  Alan Morinis' work  EVERYDAY HOLINESS; THE JEWISH SPIRITUAL PATH OF MUSSAR as our text.. This work will " offer us  a "map" of the inner life... as we explore a variety of human qualities such as "patience", "gratitude", "loving kindness" ,"enthusiasm", etc. It further offers a body of practices that we can employ to transform our inner ways".  

WHEN:   The first Sunday of the month 9:30 -11:30 AM
                        2017  Oct.8;  Nov.5,   Dec.3.           
                        2018  Jan.7;   Feb.4;   Mar. 4;   Apr.1  and  May 6.       
WHERE:  Hadassah office 1325 South Congress Avenue, suite 209  Boynton Beach
COST:      Book may be purchased via Amazon or regular booksellers.
FORMAT: Our sessions will be interactive, we will talk and listen to one another, meditate, and reach deep into our beings. Of course, everything said at these meetings will  remain there.
HOW:       Feel free to invite a friend to join us as we travel together on this uplifting experience.  

Let me know if you are planning to come to our sessions, call me at  
561-756-0864 or e mail  sachstwo@aol.com.

Wishing you and your family  a sweet, prosperous and healthy New Year.
Looking forward to being with you in 5,778 as we explore our spiritual journey together.

From our President

MARION CROPPED

Dear Hadassah Sisters,

As we head into the “dog days of summer” (ha ha), remember Fall in Florida will be here soon.

We did it!!  Moved after 20 years in Delray Beach.  We have moved into our new space in Boynton Beach.  After finding the space, taking down a half wall or 2, painting and carpeting, setting up a new phone system,  new CAT6 wiring and installing a new TV in our new conference room, we have almost completed our transition.  Decorating by hanging the pictures is the last step.  Ken Bernstein, our Associates Chair, has patched, spackled and been our picture hanging expert.  Please stop by for a tour. 

None of this could have been accomplished without our staff.  Carol Safran measured every piece of furniture, designed a floor plan and supervised the move.  Sherry Udell, went through 20 years of files and was indispensable.  Nancy Zhmendak, who is young, tall and strong, made boxes, sorted, packed and held a “garage sale” of all the items we didn’t take with us.  To all of you – Yasher Koach. 

Summer in Hadassah means our Literary Luncheon, formerly known as Book & Author, is under the guidance of Simi Rosenberg and Barbara Newman.  Friday, August 25th was sold out in three hours, so a second date to accommodate those who got shut out was added on Thursday, August 24th.  We welcome Robert Watson, our Hadassah Associate and Steven Friedman with their books, Ghost Ship and The Ultimate Broadway Musical List Book

Rosh Hodesh will be sponsored by the Florida Atlantic Executive Board and will be held on Monday, July 24th and Wednesday, August 23rd.  Sessions are at 10 a.m. at Morikami Park.  Join us for inspirational meditation and a program that Linda Rosenthal has prepared.

Meetings don’t stop with the calendar.  We are already planning for 2018.  Watch your emails for January 18, 2018 for Celebrate 18, a day of VP workshops and the installation of the 2018 Florida Atlantic Region Board and new President.

The first time I met my 2015 Region Presidents, we were told that this would be the best three years of our lives.  It has been.  Thank you all for joining me on my journey.


B’Shalom,

Marion
