Justifiably, the High Holidays are considered a period of judgment and dread. This is reflected in our liturgy where we read: “This is the day of judgment! For even the hosts of heavens are judgment, and all who dwell on earth stand arrayed before you.”
My dad, Alvin H. Farber, passed away early on a Monday morning, June 10, 2013. He was 91. My son Adam and I flew out to be with him during his last few days. My son Dan, who lives less than two hours away, also was with us, as were my brothers, Matthew and Bill.
The three ladies of the month, as always, are remembered fondly.
Lieba Yonks… We always remember Lieba as very friendly and with a great smile. Lieba was a nurse, an active member of United Hebrew and was vice-president on the Board, active in Sisterhood. She and her husband owned House of Interiors Furniture Store, where the Goodwill Building now stands.
The Good Cheer Club luncheon was a success as always. We were fortunate to have music and singing by “Men Who Care”.
Sisterhood Meeting will be September 13th. It will be good to see everyone. We are having a special guest speaker and she is bringing a surprise for us.
