Shalom Chapter of Hadassah

Joyce Spartonos, Publicity

While the month of February may be the shortest month of the year, Shalom Hadassah decided to make it long on events. While Shalom generally has one meeting per month, it turns out that for February, we’ve put together three different meetings and hope you will join us.

Starting with Tuesday, Feb. 18, an afternoon of fun is planned with lunch and a hands-on craft event, all taking place in the alcove at Stone & Barrel restaurant in Oakwood from noon to 3 p.m. We are still awaiting costs for the crafts and will get that information out to you as soon as we find out. In the meantime, that shouldn’t stop you sending in your reservation to reserve your spot. That information should go to Marsha Levine, 3805 E. County Down Drive, Chandler, AZ 85249. You can also reach her at 480-802-8911. As a matter of fact, unless otherwise noted, all checks and meeting reservations always go to her.

The following week, on Tuesday, Feb. 25, from 1 p.m. to 3 p.m., we will have what is becoming Shalom Hadassah’s annual challah baking instructions given by Wende Levy and taking place at the home of Esther Spear, 6704 S. Huachuca Way, Chandler, AZ 85249. The cost is only $15.00, and you will be going home with your very own challah! Since space is extremely limited, you need to send Marsha Levine your check and reservation ASAP, but definitely no later than Feb. 18.

Finally, closing out the month will be the performance of Guys and Dolls, at the Hale Theatre on Saturday, Feb. 29, at 3:30 p.m. (You know we wouldn’t miss out on doing something right on Leap Year Day!) When Shalom Hadassah gets tickets to shows at the Hale, we always invite husbands/significant others to partake in the festivities with us, and Guys and Dolls is no exception. For all information, please contact Marcia Weiner at 480-802-9455.

We have many more fun and exciting programs on the calendar. If you aren’t already a member of Shalom Hadassah, what are you waiting for? Just get in touch with one of our membership chairs: Arleene at 443-904-4372 or Shirley at 480-883-9159, and come join our wonderful chapter. Well, that’s it for now. We’ll catch up with you next time to let you know what else is on the agenda for the coming months.
