Annual Open Board Meeting & Program

On Wednesday, May 10, our sisterhood was treated with a presentation by Lillian Kapilivsky, WRJ-International Board Member, WRJ-Southwest District Area Director and Sisterhood President of Temple Emanuel of McAllen, Texas.


Her presentation, Famous Jewish Faces, included many Jewish artists, inventors and composers with a description of their impact on our world with highlights of Ruth Handler, the creator of Barbie and Ken dolls.  Included in Lillian's presentation was a viewing of the film, The Tribe (click on titles to view presentations).  One lucky sisterhood member won a Bat Mitzvah Barbie created by Barbara Hermann.
