Opening Meeting 9-12-11
|Opening Meeting and Luncheon was held on Monday, September 12, 2011 at Carrabba's Italian Grill in Mason. Bobbi Handwerger, Cincinnati Chapter Co-President, welcomed everyone and said the HaMotzi blessing. After a delicious lunch of Caesar salad, grilled salmon or vegetarian lasagna and a parfait dessert, Renee Sandler, the event Chair, introduced the guest speaker, Renee Resnik from Columbus. She spoke about Hadassah's current financial state, then passed out handouts that stated Hadassah's cause and goals for the future. To sustain excitement about Hadassah's mission, future generations must pracice Tikkun Olam (repair the world), foster Klal Yisrael (we are one), embody M'Dor L'Dor (pass wisdom from one generation to another), and pracice Pikuach Nefesh (save lives... value life, one life at a time).|
At the conclusion, Adele Gutterman and Rita Rothenberg awarded raffle prizes, including gift certificates to area restaurants, Hadassah gift items, and a beautiful pearl necklace and silver ring.
