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.

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!

Sisterhood maintains in Covid cocoon, assists religious school with VCSC Backpack Fund

By Patty Lewis

We’ve been through an election and the holidays are approaching but with COVID still around, I’m sure everybody understands that our lives have changed and things won’t be getting back to normal just quite yet.

Thanksgiving dinner may experience some adjustments as we alter routines to protect our families. Hanukkah is coming in December and it, too, won’t be the same. Sisterhood will not operate its traditional Hanukkah gift shop this year.

Religious school remains involved in the community and has taken on the Vigo County School Corporation Backpack Program as its latest project.
