MONTANA HADASSAH: SAD NEWS

Dear All,

It is with great sadness we share the news of the passing of Claude Oulman, beloved husband of our member Callie Oulman, and beloved father of our member Holly Oulman, all of Butte. May Claude’s memory be a blessing and may all the family be comforted among the mourners of Zion at this difficult time.

At this time, my understanding is that when Claude was life-flighted to Portland, where some of the family already lives, Callie also went, and that when it is safe to do so, after the pandemic, the family will have a gathering to honor Claude. The address to send cards is still the address we have in Butte:

Oulman’s
649 S. Montana St.
Butte, MT 59701

Thank you for keeping the Oulmans in your hearts.

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,

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.

Dear Ms. Weiss:

I’m writing to introduce myself and the new novel I’ve written with Robert Schoen. I hope you’ll be able to help me.
Our book, The Rabbi Finds Her Way, was recently published by Stone Bridge Press of Berkeley, California.
The clergy and president of our own congregation, Temple Sinai in Oakland, have suggested that we share our book with temple book clubs around the country—I know that one of my favorite ways to learn about new books is through my book clubs.
Would you please be so kind as to give this letter to a congregant who leads a temple book club so they may consider it?

We’ve had wonderful feedback from several Jewish book clubs that have read The Rabbi Finds Her Way, and have arranged with our publisher to offer a special book club rate.’ And for every five books ordered at the same time we will include a sixth at no extra cost.
Please email me at catherine.decuir@gmail.com for information on your special book club order, payment instructions, and any questions you may have.
Sincerely,
da914G de duzi
Catherine deCuir
Author and Cantonal Soloist
Our special book club rate is $10.00 per copy, including tax and shipping to one U.S. address (minimum three copies). Payment may be made by check, credit card, or PayPal.

“This rabbi gig. People have no idea what its all about.”
A year after graduating from rabbinical school, Pearl Ross-Levy lands the job of her life. As Associate Rabbi at Lakeshore Temple in Oakland, California, Pearl begins to learn what being a rabbi is all about.
Through compelling, inspiring, and often funny episodes, the young rabbi meets a cast of quirky characters and discovers what it means to become a leader in the synagogue community. As Pearl faces the challenges of her new role, we witness her kindness and compassion as well as her resourcefulness and courage.
Whether it is caring for her high school classmate (the victim of a serious car accident), struggling with the anguish of a man who believes he’s committed a murder, or bringing the community together to help a lonely cancer patient feel not so alone, the rabbi teaches us how a little love and caring can affect people in wonderful ways.

The Rabbi’s strength and faith grow as she continues to see that God does, indeed, work in strange ways.
Praise
