Bake Challah with Hadassah in advance of the High Holidays. On Sunday, August 29, Hadassah Board member Emily Smachetti will teach Challah baking at 11 a.m. via Zoom. Recipe and ingredients will be provided in advance so you can bake along with Emily. RSVP @ email@example.com.
Hadassah and The Inquirers Book Club paid tribute to Victoria Cohen-Crumpton, who was a past president of both organizations. Victoria recently moved to Brasstown, NC to be near her children. Many in the Nashville Jewish community joined Victoria on Zoom to remember her many charitable endeavors and generous contributions to both organizations and West End Synagogue and Congregation Micah. Victoria was recognized by Rabbi Flip, Sharon Paz and Marcia Stewart for volunteer activities that included teaching Hebrew and singing in choirs, and regularly leading Sunday night minyan service at West End. Along with Victoria's Nashville friends, Bonnie Boring, who is the immediate past president of the Hadassah Southern Region, joined the tribute with more accolades for Victoria. Leslie Klein, a Hadassah past President who now lives in Florida, penned a moving tribute to Victoria with pictures of Victoria at Hadassah events like the Hamentaschen Bake pictured above.
Victoria gave a brief autobiography of her journey from South Africa to Israel to Georgia, Nashville and now North Carolina. She also narrated a tour of her new home on 40 acres in rural North Carolina.
