A beary good Sisterhood gathering

A bevy of bears
A bevy of bears
     A handful of Sisterhood members braved the heavy rains Saturday to stuff and sew toy bears to give out to congregants and others who take ill.
     With former Sisterhood presidents Phebe Schwartz and Diane Ringel leading the way, their fellow seamstresses pulled out needles and thread and sewed up the cute little bears, then put their matching sweaters on to complete their outfits.
     The bears come in a kit that Rabbi Moch found at a recent conference in the states. Phebe ordered stuffing materials and the workers met at Hook, Line and Sinker in Frenchtown for sewing, chatting and lunch.
     Liza Margolis, whose house was flooded and thus was unable to attend, is trying to resurrect Sisterhood. If you're interested in helping, please call the Synagogue at 774-4312.
