January was a rainy month in and out of the NJC, and on January 9th our meeting and game night had to be postponed.
On January 16th we had a lot of fun doing the kitchen inventory. The NJC Kitchen Inventory is now registered at Bed Bath and Beyond. You may go to the registry to donate an item by clicking here.
The Sisterhood is using the funds raised from our recent Bake Sale to fix the walls in the pantry. The money will cover the materials, but we need your help to actually make the repairs. We would appreciate it if you could help by coming to the NJC on Sunday, February 17th, at 11 a.m. and becoming a "hands on" part of your synagogue.
The Sisterhood received a lovely donation from Sharon Snyder to buy a KitchenAid Mixer and small kitchen appliances. She also donated several pots and pans. With all of the recent donations, new items from the registry, and in conjunction with the Caring Committee, we are going to be able to make some delicious meals for our members who are ill.
Our recent Bake Sale on Sunday, January 27th, was a great success. Thank you to all who participated! On Wednesday February 6th, we held our monthly game night / business meeting.
On Tuesday, February 19th, at 11:00 a.m. we are baking Hamentaschen to send to our college students. On Thursday, February 21st, at 7:00 p.m. we are baking Hamentaschen for the NJC Purim Festival.
