CHANGE OF DATE: Women's Seudah Shlishit now May 21st, 4-6 p.m.

Due to uncommunicated constraints on the use of the Social Hall on May 14th, the shul office has asked the Sisterhood to change the date for its Mother's Day Seudah Shlishit honoring all women to Shabbos afternoon, May 21. The event will run from 4-6pm in the YISE Arcola Social Hall. Attendees will still enjoy a "make-yourown wrap" bar and a variety of chocolate desserts while socializing with other women from the community, still bring and share their favorite Mother's Day memories, and still hear inspiring words of Torah from our guest speaker, Susan Koss. The date might have changed but the experience has not!! All women are welcome and encouraged to attend! (But we request no children under 12). Sponsorships are welcome at $18 (or more). Checks should be made out to "YISE Sisterhood," and sent, preferably in advance of the seudah so we are able to formally thank you at the event, to Hedy Bauman (Treasurer), 1131 University Blvd. W. #610
