Orlando Chapter of Hadassah opens the 2016-2017 season

 


The summer is winding down and that means its Hadassah time again. Throughout the 2016-2017 season the Orlando Chapter will offer unique programs comprising a variety of subjects relating to women everywhere.

The first meeting of the new season will be held on Tuesday, Sept. 6 at 11:30 a.m. at Congregation Ohev Shalom where Rabbi David Kay will bring his musical stylings to the stage with his one-man show.

Rabbi Kay is an experienced entertainer, having performed in an original rock band, acoustic duo, and as a solo act prior to pursuing the rabbinate. He has appeared regularly in productions at Theater at the J at the Roth JCC, since its revival in October of 2015.

The Orlando Chapter of Hadassah will celebrate women throughout the 2016-2017 season. It will showcase woman who make a difference, whether it be in their homes, neighborhoods, the community or the world. The Orlando Chapter will promote woman’s health through wellness initiatives as well as offer information about new and innovative treatments for disease. It will feature topics and programs that are of relevance to women.

With this in mind, the upcoming program will feature an afternoon with Iris Pastor, nationally heralded Huffington Post columnist, author, and motivational speaker. Other future programs will highlight a cooking demonstration and lunch with a local chef and restaurateur, and a book discussion with a noted Cuban author. These are but a few of the meaningful and enjoyable events Hadassah has planned for the year this year. Other outstanding events include The Bunny Rosen Heart Health Fashion Show, Annual Awards Luncheon, Donor Luncheon and special presentations honoring Orlando Hadassah’s own Women of Valor.

The Orlando Chapter 2016-2018 Calendar Directory will be available at the meeting on Sept. 6. The directories will be distributed to all members attending chapter meetings or functions. The cost of mailing makes it impractical to ship the directories. Should you wish to have your directory mailed, contact our treasurer for shipping and handling fees.

Orlando Hadassah invites the community to attend the luncheon and Rabbi Kay’s pop music performance on Tuesday, Sept. 6, at Congregation Ohev Shalom. Reservations are required.

Please RSVP to Nancy at nancyg357@yahoo.com or call 407-333-0204.

The couvert is $12.
