UPDATE: CEMETERY CLEANUP

Since the weather forecast is predicting rain or snow on Sunday, May 2, we have postponed the cemetery cleanup for two weeks. We are tentatively planning it for Sunday, May 16, at 10:00 A.M. weather permitting. So bring a lawn mower or a weed whacker or the willingness to run one, or trash bags or a rake or whatever you have around, plus a sack lunch and something to drink for yourself.

PLEASE MARK YOUR CALENDARS FOR THIS UPCOMING EVENT: RESUMING MONTHLY SERVICES

Due to the pandemic, monthly services were temporarily suspended. Now we are taking tentative steps toward resuming some activities in an effort to get back to more “normal” life.

With this in mind, we would like to resume the lay services led by Devorah Werner the first Friday of the month, May 7, at 6:00 P.M. at the Bethel, with the caveat that if the weather is inclement we will postpone it to the second Friday of the month. We would like to hold our first gathering outside in the courtyard behind the Bethel. There are some picnic tables out there, but you may prefer to bring your own folding chair. We request that you observe state and CDC guidelines regarding the pandemic protocol — wear masks, social distance, do not bring food or drink to share.

The address for the Bethel is 1009 18th Avenue Southwest. click here for map and directions.

Hope to see as many of you there as possible.

PLEASE MARK YOUR CALENDARS FOR THIS UPCOMING EVENT: CEMETERY CLEANUP

Please join us on Sunday, May 2, at 10:00 A.M. at the Eaton Road Cemetery to help clean up. After not being able to assemble do to the pandemic, and due to the winter and the recent winds we have had, the cemetery is in dire need of a refresh. Please bring your lawn mowers, weed whackers, or the desire to run one, or whatever else you can to help with the cleanup effort, plus a sack lunch and something to drink for yourself. Many hands will make light work, and it will be so nice to finally see you all in person, face to face.  Thank you.

NEWS ON SOME MEMBERS
• Donna Johnson in Philipsburg, who does not have access to email, has experienced a miracle of healing and is improving. She is so pleased and wanted to convey to all how much the cards, calls and good wishes/prayers have meant to her. “Keep them coming” is her wish. She loves the contact, connection and concern. Donna Johnson, PO Box 795, Philipsburg, MT, 59858.

• Michelle Vered in Bozeman, our email administrator (Nancy is sending this particular message so I can write about Michelle) is doing better after COVID and also appreciated all the cards and letters she received.

• Sara (Sikorski) McConnell, Helena, our treasurer, got married and is expecting her first baby with a due date of January! B’sha-ah Tovah (“at a good hour” as they say in Israel – they wait on the “Mazal Tov” until the baby is born) and Mazal Tov on your recent marriage!

• Roberta Perlman, Columbus had rotator cuff surgery in January and is improving and doing PT like a good patient!

• Elaine Remez, Somers (in the Flathead), corresponding secretary, had surgery last month and we send her a big mishebeirach.

• Mona Jamison, Helena, is in our hearts after the recent passing last month of her beloved husband Van.

Cards from our chapter have been sent for all of the above (thank you Wendy Weissman, Great Falls, recording secretary filling in for corresponding while Elaine is out with surgery). Let me know if I’ve missed anyone. Thank you to all who have made donations this year or have stepped up or are considering stepping up to be an annual donor. Blessings to all of you. If you have any news you would like the chapter to share, please send it tomontana.hadassah@gmail.com

SAVE THE DATE
October 23-25, 2020 is still our Montana Hadassah annual meeting in Helena at the Doubletree Hotel if we are able to meet in person, and by Zoom if not. More details will be trickling out to you in the next months, but I can tell you we have entertainment already. We will be zooming in a comedian (American who made aliya) from Israel! It’s going to be fun and we are going to raise some significant funds and awareness, whether we meet in person or by Zoom!

BELLE FLIGELMAN WINESTINE

EDITOR’S NOTE: This year is the 100th anniversary of the passing of the 19th amendment, which guarantees all american women the right to vote. Beginning in the 1800s, women wrote letters, organized, petitioned, picketed, marched, lobbied, and practiced civil disobedience to win the right to vote, which many regarded as a radical change in the U.S. Constitution. Few of them lived to see the final victory, but the 19th Amendment was passed by Congress on June 4, 1919, and ratified on August 18, 1920.
