Oneg Captain Program

The Oneg Captain Program is overseen by Sisterhood's Oneg Coordinator. Captains coordinate the hosts and assist them with the setup and cleanup of the Oneg. Captains participate three to four times a year in rotation. New volunteers to the program receive training prior to captaining on their own. If you are an adult member of the congregation and would like to participate in this Manageable Mitzvah, please reach out to the Sisterhood Oneg Coordinator. To sponsor an Oneg, please go to our form and document page to download the Sponsorship Form.

Sisterhood-Sponsored Book Group

B’nai Shalom Book Group Selections for January 11, February 22 and April 5

On Monday January 11, please join us to discuss In Five Years by Rebecca Serle, a contemporary novel that explores the unpredictable powers of destiny. Manhattan lawyer Dannie Cohan meticulously planned her life. After a successful job interview and marriage proposal, Dannie goes to sleep knowing she’s on track to achieve her five-year plan. When she wakes, she’s suddenly in a different apartment, a different ring on her finger, and beside a different man. The TV news is on, and she sees the scrolling date. It’s the same night – December 15 – but 2025, five years in the future. The story is: What happens next in Dannie’s life? 

On Monday February 22, we will discuss America’s Jewish Women: A History from Colonial Times until Today by Pamela Nadell, a groundbreaking history of how Jewish women have maintained their identity and influenced social activism throughout American history. Nadell recounts how Jewish women have been at the forefront of causes for centuries, fighting for suffrage, trade unions, civil rights, feminism and fighting for Jewish rights around the world. This book was the Jewish Book Council’s 2019 Book of the Year. Congregant Dr. Marsha Nourse, a professor in the Brandeis University Writing Program, will co-facilitate the meeting. We’ll also have as a Special Guest Dr. Ellen Frankel, former CEO of The Jewish Publication Society and author of ten books, including The Five Books of Miriam: A Woman’s Commentary on the Torah. 

On Monday, April 5, we will discuss The Song of the Jade Lily by Australian Kirsty Manning, a story of Jewish refugees who fled to Shanghai during WWII. In 1939 a young Chinese woman and Jewish refugee, Li and Romy, meet and become friends. During the war, they are forced apart. Afterwards, Romy settles in Australia. In 2016, Romy's granddaughter visits Shanghai to uncover the family's perplexing mysteries and secrets. The novel is a provocative, beautiful story of friendship, motherhood, and the hardship and courage that often shapes our destinies. 

Meetings will be held on Zoom starting at 7 p.m. All B’nai Shalom members are welcome. For more information, please contact Barbara Barry
