Bubbe Club

We had a fabulous annual meeting on October 18 at the Friedman Center for Jewish Life.

Susan D. Green of Birmingham Bake & Cook Co. presented 'Up Close and Personal with Vinaigrettes' while we created and enjoyed a fabulously refreshing and seasonal salad of mixed greens with almonds and dates tossed in a tangerine vinaigrette, and served with a honey-drizzled goat cheese crostini.

If you're a grandmother, please consider joining Bubbe Club.  Dues are $25 and includes listing in the Hadassah Directory of all your grandchildren.

Kindly contact Lora Schwartz for more information.
