It’s that time of year again for the publication of the 2018-2019 AA Membership Directory, coordinated by AA Sisterhood. This year’s directory is dedicated to Stanley Srochi and in memory of his wife, Joan. The expected date of publication will be December 2017.
We are in need of ads, ad solicitors (new and/or repeated), and various administrative opportunities. Ads will be seen by more than 1,000 people, as well as support our synagogue’s school and programming for children and teens.
This is a short-term commitment and we’re counting on your participation. For more information or to volunteer, contact the Directory Co-Chairs (Barbara Nathan at email@example.com or Delcy Pardo Harber at firstname.lastname@example.org).

Since ancient times ritual and lore have linked women and the new moon. Today gatherings to celebrate Rosh Chodesh and explore personal spiritual growth are widespread.
Our Rosh Chodesh discussion program has touched the interest of more than 80 women, averaging 15-20 per session. Members of Sisterhood have led discussion using a variety of sources, A Bride For One Night, by Ruth Calderon, review of the Torah portion, and articles of interest to our leaders.
Please join us as we explore personal and spiritual growth through discussion with other women, followed by refreshments and time to socialize.
You, too, can lead one of our sessions or be a host. AA Sisterhood Rosh Chodesh discussion group meets monthly at 7:30 pm. For more information and to register, contact Susan Sandler at firstname.lastname@example.org.
