PRESIDENT’S MESSAGE
February will be a busy month for our little shul; we have an event every weekend. The first event comes on
February 1st, the Men’s Club World Wide Wrap participation. The second event comes in the form of Friday
night services on February 6 at 8PM. No dinner this month, that’s reserved for Men’s Club Shabbat next month.
Valentine’s Day is the Seaboard Region’s Blue Yarmulke Man of the Year. This year we are thankful for the
efforts and the support we received from Joe Halikman. Joe was instrumental in making our property
presentable to prospective buyers. The following weekend we will have the Men’s Club and Sisterhood square
off in our annual Baffle Bowl and Larry promises many baffling questions. Howie is ready to cook us all
another delectable dinner. March 4th is Purim services at 7PM. And March 13th and 14th is Men’s Club Shabbat.
After all this spring, Passover, and baseball are right around the corner in April.
Your Presidents,
Ed/Keith
Sisterhood Reminder: Remember to pay for your Sisterhood New Year’s Greetings. Please send a check, made
out to the Shaare Tikvah Sisterhood, to Judy Garfinkel. The charge is $10.00 per line.

SISTERHOOD
Thank you to everyone who participated in Sisterhood Shabbat, especially to our service leaders and those who
helped in the kitchen. There are too many of you to list individually, but you know who you are. One individual
rating special mention is Amy Sheldon for once again putting it all together. Don’t forget to come out to the
spaghetti do inner and Baffle Bowl and root for the Sisterhood team. Purim is around the corner, so don’t forget
to order your Hamantashen. Lastly, congratulations to Joe Halikman – the Men’s Club Honoree for the Blue
Yarmulke Man of the Year!
Shalom,
JoAnn
