Temple Shalom Sisterhood’s 2020 Spring Event Woman of Valor Cancelled

We are grateful to Julie Gothard, our 2020 Woman of Valor for her leadership in the Jewish community, and are exploring various options to honor her at a later date.  In the meantime, please continue to send us your tributes which we will add to Julie’s tribute book.

For those of you who have already sent in your reservation, you can request a refund for the dinner no later than April 5 by contacting Karen Fishkind at If you prefer that your payment be a donation in Julie’s honor, please know that the funds raised will go toward providing youth scholarships, community service activities, and supporting Jewish Family Service, all causes that are near and dear to Julie.

We will keep you informed of our future plans.

Sisterhood/Brotherhood Coffee Break Book Club
Saturday, June 20
1:45pm – 3:00pm
Home of Staci Mendelsohn (Near Coit and Park)

Our next book choice is The Tattooist of Auschwitz by Heather Morris. Our discussion of this vivid, harrowing, and ultimately hopeful re-creation of Lale Sokolov’s experiences as the man who tattooed the arms of thousands of prisoners with what would become one of the most potent symbols of the Holocaust will be led by Staci Mendelsohn. The Tattooist of Auschwitz is a testament to the endurance of love and humanity under the darkest possible conditions.
