The sisterhood and Rosh Chodesh of Hopewell, NJ's Har Sinai Temple are spending an evening at the theater as a kickoff of their tentative activities for the months ahead.
First up for both members and non- members is an Aug. 29 performance at 8 p.m. of "The Tale of the Allergist's Wife," starring Marilu Henner and Marsha Mason, at New Hope's Bucks County Playhouse. Tickets are $41 for members and $45 for non-members but must be reserved and paid in advance by calling the temple at (609) 730-8100 this week. Attendees can meet at the temple, 2421 Pennington Rd., at 6:30 p.m. or at the playhouse at 7:30 p.m. the night of the performance. There will be optional coffee after the show.
On Oct. 4 at 6 p.m., the Sisterhood will meet before services to share a woman's perspective on the Torah. One of the sisterhood's regular Red Tent Shabbats will be held following a hike up Titusville's Baldpate on Oct. 12.
In December, there will b a discussion on Geraldine Brooks' "People of the Book" at the temple. The Sisterhood's activities will extend into 2014 with a visit to the State Theatre in New Brunswick to see Lily Tomlin perform in March. On April 11, the Sisterhood's Shabbat service and Israeli dancing at the temple will include the whole family.
A women's overnight retreat in February and a women's Seder in April are just some of what's planned for women of all ages who join Har Sinai's Sisterhood.
