Hi All,

I hope you are enjoying your summer. It won't be long before the weather starts to cool and we prepare for Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur! Iris Sapir and her able assistant, Harvey, have a wide selection of New Year cards. Please contact them at irissapir@yahoo.com or call them at 919-847-6060 to order yours in time for the holidays.


We have so many exciting events coming up, that I think there should be something for everyone. Please take some time to look over this newsletter and find the things that interest you. If you haven't been involved in Hadassah events in a while, or if you are a new member to our chapter, all it takes is one call to get involved. It is a great way to re-establish old friendships and of course, to make new ones.

10:30 a.m.

Crabtree Valley Mall

The Body Shop and Chico's at the Crabtree Valley Mall will open their doors to us at 10:30 a.m. for a private shopping excursion prior to Crabtree's official Sunday 12:00 p.m. opening. We will get extra-special attention by the knowledgable staff at both stores. However, Shopping Isn't Everything.........So, after shopping, we will meet at 12:30 p.m. for a delicious brunch in a private room at Brio Tuscan Grille. The cost for brunch is $25.00 to cover the food, tax, gratuity & includes a raffle ticket for a chance to win a $25.00 gift card to the Crabtree Valley Mall. If you can't be there to shop, you can still come to brunch. It's going to be a lot of fun, so don't miss it! RSVP to Ellen Caplan at 919-616-0601 as soon as possible.
