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help organizers know which leftovers are available for other functions, and keep the refrigerators and freezers free of out-of-date items.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.

(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.
