Area Day Northern California, July 19th
A day where Sisterhoods from the area gather for the purpose of connecting, learning, sharing and schmoozing. WRS had 8 delegates in attendance: Judi Sheppard, Susan Goldwasser, Ronna Voorsanger, Rhonda Daniels, Diane Amarillas, Sheri Langer, Harriett Schneitzer and Nancy Symonds.
There were workshops on various topics, including but not limited to, Strategies for Creating a Successful Sisterhood, Programming and Fund-raising, Social Action, a Mussar teaching (with Rabbi Judy Shanks from neighboring Congregation Isaiah), Creating a Culture of Engagement, Diversity in our Sisterhoods, as well as discussions on How to Write a Drash and Creating Successful Retreats.
Temple Sinai in Oakland hosted the lovely event. Connecting with other Sisterhoods to share effective resources is what Sisterhood is all about — after all, we are Stronger Together!
