Sisterhood focuses on growth in 2022, sets ‘meet, greet and eat’ event for Dec. 19

By Patty Lewis

I would like to invite all current and future UHC Sisterhood members to my home at 10:30 a.m. Sunday, Dec. 19, for a “meet, greet and eat” event.

Covid has kept us apart for much of 2020 and 2021. But in the meantime, the congregation has added a few members and we’d love to welcome them.

Call Norma at the Temple at (812) 232-5988 to RSVP or use our contact form.

Summer lasts a little longer on South Padre Island, but there’s no place like home

By Patty Lewis

Welcome to fall weather, with its sunshine, cool temperatures and turning leaves.

A few Sisterhood members got together in late October to discuss ideas and projects as Wilma invited Jackie and me to her home for coffee and cake. We talked travel and family and scrapbooking and art projects and had such an enjoyable visit.

I had just returned from an event-filled 17 days in South Padre Island, Texas, to visit my son Grant and daughter-in-law Dawn. It was my first trip since my husband Ralph passed away in June.

Sisterhood to lay stones at Highland Lawn, publishes large-format 2021-22 directory

By Patty Lewis

With the arrival of Spring, I have a worthy project for Sisterhood and any Temple members who would like to participate.

Wilma, Jackie and I have twice visited Highland Lawn Cemetery to place stones on Jewish graves, and we’re planning to return on a to-be-determined day in May to do so again.

Placing a stone on a headstone is a simple way to remember those who played vibrant roles in our Temple community and are now gone, and whose family members are not here to honor them.

I also want to thank everyone for the phone calls and emails letting me know how much you have enjoyed the new large-format, 2021-22 Sisterhood directory we recently published and mailed.

Religious school performs a mitzvah; turkey with latkes loses its luster

By Patty Lewis

I am pleased to report that with your contributions, Sisterhood was able to help UHC religious school raise $547 for the Vigo County School Corporation Backpack Program.

The Backpack Program provides food for at-risk children during weekends when they have no access to school breakfasts and lunches.

Our students adopted the program as their Mitzvah project for the year.

Thanks to all who donated!
