From Our President

We often find that peace of mind and increased productivity come from an organized workspace. Clutter has multiple dimensions. Clutter can be physical, digital, mental, emotional or spiritual, and each type can be overwhelming. If you are in the need to lighten you “clutter”, there are a few good resources from Joshua Becker, who started as a blogger. One is called “The More of Less.” Other books of his which will help to get you motivated and started include “Simplify” and “Clutter Free with Kids.” Our own Women of Emanu-El were inspired by him and have gotten an early start. This summer, Bobbie Cohn, Nadine Zuckerman and many volunteers organized the Judaica Shoppe Around the Corner and its storage areas. We hope all of you have as much success.

As we approach the New Year, the Woman of Emanu-El:

  • Appreciate the many sponsors for the Shana Tova Card fundraiser and the artwork of Julie Zvi
  • Wish you a sweet New Year and appreciate the many sponsors for the Honey fundraiser.
  • Look forward to Mah Jong and Munchies starting on September 12.
  • Welcome the community to come hear author Maggie Anton who will speak about her book Fifty Shades of Talmud on Tuesday, October 17. Admission will be free. Books are available for purchase ($6.95) and she will sign it prior to the event!

Please sign-up today for these exciting events and thank you for your participation. We encourage you read through your membership booklet that features the artwork of Barbara Kohl-Spiro. Please join us by sending in your membership form.

Today our role at CEEBJ, the Women of Emanu-El, an affiliate of the Woman of Reform Judaism (WRJ), continues to be to advocate for those without a voice. We are able to reach into the lives of many with your participation in the activities that we sponsor throughout the year. Stronger together, we ensure that these women make a difference in the world.
