A Note from Sisterhood

I’d like to introduce myself, I’m Peggy Ann Buchman, the new president of Temple Sisterhood. My husband Brian Hendrickson and I moved here over 5 years ago. Prior to that we belonged to Temple Chai, a large reform congregation in Long Grove, Illinois. I worked there as the clergy secretary for over 15 years. I’m looking forward to working with Tina Lyon and the other sisterhood members to help make our temple a warm inviting place for Jewish families to worship and engage with one another in an active community.

If you have any ideas or suggestions on how to help our congregation to grow as a community, please let me know. I hope to re-start the bake sale in November. With Tina Lyon, I’d like the Sister- hood to welcome any new members and their families to Temple B’nai Israel with a brunch in May or June. What activities would you like to see? What can we do to help you feel more welcome as part of our temple family? I came from a very active, engaged congregation and would like to bring some of that enthusiasm, with your help, to Temple B’nai Israel.
