Sun Lakes Jewish Congregation Sisterhood news and events

Suzy Ziegler

The November 12 Sun Lakes Jewish Congregation Sisterhood meeting will be a field trip to Silver Lining Ranch owned by Ron and Victoria Gindick. Located only 8 miles east of Sun Lakes, it is a world away, where these two Jewish farmers have returned to ancient Jewish roots, growing much of what they eat on two acres of land with greenhouses, an orchard of fruit and nut trees, chickens and other gardens. It’s a fun place to visit. Ron and Victoria will open the meeting with a discussion of how their pursuit of a healthy lifestyle includes growing, harvesting, preserving and eating what they grow throughout the year. A walking tour of their farm will follow (please wear comfortable walking shoes). This event will begin promptly at 10:30 a.m. to take advantage of cooler mornings. Refreshments will be served. There is plenty of parking, but those who wish to car pool should meet at the Chapel parking lot at 10:00 a.m. Call Barbara Reiss at 480-802-3281 to car pool or to drive. Contact Victoria Gindick for directions at 602-616-4264. In case of rain, the meeting will be held on November 19.

If you haven’t already done so, don’t forget to send your dues ($25) to Phyllis Mandel. She will also be happy to accept donations for Toys From the Heart. And remember that after December 31 dues rise to $30.
