HADASSAH: FUN OPPORTUNITY TO BUILD A COOKBOOK

Dear All,

Fun opportunity to build a cookbook that will be a fundraiser for our Hadassah Region:

The Desert Mountain Hadassah Region Cookbook will be “sold” for $25 and emailed to those who purchase it, so there will be no production costs.

How to participate:
1. Please submit a recipe with a story. For example, you could submit a recipe with a “Dor v’ Dor” – “from Generation to Generation” – type story, such as, “This fruit pie recipe was from my amazing mother who made this every Shabbos. When we traveled to Bainbridge Island every year for summer vacation, I would make this and my kids loved it.”
2. Recipes can be in any category: Appetizers, lite meals, breakfast, dinner, veggies, desserts, special holiday meals, miscellaneous!
3. Please submit easy recipes!
4. Please include a selfie or another picture of your choosing. If the recipe is from your Mom for example, please include a picture of your Mom, or of the two of you together.
5. Please email the recipe and photos directly to Judith Levitsky, Major Gifts Chair (from Colorado) Judith.Levitsky@hadassah.org by August 9.

CARDS AND PRAYERS NEEDED

Dearest Members,

Here is an opportunity to send a card and share healing prayers.

Hadassah life member from Butte, Callie Oulman, and her husband Claude, were in a bad car accident in Butte two days ago. Callie ended up with a broken arm and Claude ended up in the ICU and yesterday was life flighted to Portland. Their daughter Allie Jolly said they would very much appreciate any thoughts and prayers and cards, which can be sent to the Oulmans at

649 South Montana Street,
Butte, MT 59701.

Please feel free to write even if you’ve never met them and tell them you are a fellow Hadassah member and that we are very much holding them in our thoughts and prayers. Thank you.

FIFTY PERCENT OFF DOCUMENTARY ON THE CHANGING RELIGIOUS IDENTITIES OF U.S. MILLENNIALS

WHAT DO YOU BELIEVE NOW? Half off for a limited time! Streaming available for remote education & online screenings.
AMERICAN MILLENNIALS • RELIGION & SPIRITUALITY

GET HALF OFF BEFORE JULY 31 USE CODE: 50%WDYBN*7/31/20

We’re writing to share a special 50% off discount for an educational documentary we hope will be of interest to you and Great Falls Hebrew Association Aitz Chaim. Seventeen years after six diverse American teenagers shared their spiritual struggles and aspirations in a 2002 documentary, they return as adults in WHAT DO YOU BELIEVE NOW? to reveal how their beliefs have changed. Against a backdrop of growing religious polarization and disengagement, these now 33 year old subjects, including a Catholic, Pagan, Jew, Muslim, Lakota and Buddhist, offer their deeply personal faith journeys, life challenges, and evolving ideas about higher powers.

“What Do You Believe Now? offers people the chance to hear from real people about how they make sense of life’s big questions. It brings to life a variety of positions and viewpoints, and stimulates students’ own thinking about these issues.”
