TBA Sisterhood is forming a group to manage food storage and eliminate wastefulness in the synagogue kitchen. This is an ongoing effort. Group members will use a new labeling system to track food brought in for special events, help organizers know which leftovers are available for other functions, and keep the refrigerators and freezers free of out-of-date items. Members will also ensure that dishtowels and aprons are clean and all appliances are in working order. If you would like to volunteer on a rotating basis, please contact Donna Pierce at email@example.com or Deb Vozella at firstname.lastname@example.org.

Barbara Shapiro, author of The Art Forger, is the featured speaker at Sisterhood’s 10th Annual Lecture Series Brunch on Sunday, March 30, 2014. Buy the book NOW in the temple office for $11.95, a 20-percent discount. Based on the thefts from Boston’s Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum in 1990, Shapiro’s best-selling novel poses a deviously clever and engrossing scenario for the heist, in which the art of deception brushes up against the deception of art. (In 2013, the FBI announced that it knows the identity of the thieves, and has started a publicity campaign with a $5 million reward for information leading to the recovery of the works in good condition.) A Boston resident, Shapiro became fascinated by Isabella Stewart Gardner, known as Belle, almost 30 years ago and struggled for years while doing research to figure out a way to write about her. The heist was a shocking story, but what did it have to do with Belle, 70 years after her death? Suddenly a question came to her: What would any of us be willing to do to secure our grandest ambition? “So I expanded my cast of characters,” Shapiro said, “and gave each one a temptation their egos couldn’t resist, including Belle as … Continue reading
