Hadassah Happenings November - December 2014/5775

Gobble Gobble!

In the beginning of November, Hadassah Baton Rougeheld a community Woman’s Spirituality Retreat, “Drinking from the Wells of Inspiration”, with special guest Rabbi Yael Levy of Congregation Mishkan Shalom. This event is Co-sponsored by Beth Shalom Synagogue Sisterhood, Congregation B’Nai Israel Sisterhood, The Federation of Greater Baton Rouge, The Jewish Endowment of New Orleans and the Rosenson Family and hosted at “The Red Shoes”.We are grateful to everyone who helped make this event happen and look to build on the momentum of this event for future community women’s spirituality events.

Since things move and happen fast in our world we are sad to bid farewell to one of our unsung heroines of Hadassah, Andrea Tiras. She and her family are moving to El Paso, Texas and we wish them good luck in their new home.We also bid farewell to two of our Board Members, Vice President of Programing Karen Ceppos & Recording Secretary and Young Women representative, Jena Barnhill. We thank them for their service to Hadassah and hope that they will continue to volunteer and participate with Hadassah in the future.Stepping in to Karen’s position of Vice President of Programing we welcome a new team, Corresponding Secretary, Ruth Katzen and newcomerCarin Carleson as Co-chairs. 2015 is going to be a rocking year with this team!We lastly would like to congratulate Past President Marilyn Martell in her new Region Positing as an Area Vice President.
