The crepes came via Europe, the entertainment straight from Australia. The atmosphere? Classically warm Crown Heights.
This past Motzoei Shabbos, The Beis Medrash Women’s Circle celebrated their second anniversary in style. 120 women attended the lavish melava malka, and there was something for everyone.
A bountiful buffet by Pomodori and Sushi Spot II and made-to-order crepes by Sarah Newman of Antwerp kept everyone gastronomically satiated.
A compelling talk about personal growth, complete with tales from the trenches, was presented by Mrs. Chana Ginsburg. And the singing duo, Rivka Leah Cylich and Chaya Sara Weiss, rounded out the program.
It was an evening of camaraderie and shared accomplishment: attendees, representing a wide swath of our community, joined to celebrate the weekly classes and regular programming they have come to love.
“A lot of people complain that everyone moves out of Crown Heights to do shlichus, but there are so many local people who would benefit from lectures, discussions, and interactive workshops,” commented Mrs. Avigail Gribov after the event. “No one did anything: they just complained. Well, you filled the void! I am very proud to be a little part of this amazing team.”
The evening also represented the culmination of two successful fundraising campaigns Baruch Hashem. The Shoe-In Campaign raised a significant amount of money due to the kindness of Women’s Circle participants and friends. In addition, each table at the dinner was sponsored in honor of a special woman: their story and inspiration brightened the room.
Each participant left with a warm glow and a perfectly-packed mug filled with winter’s delights.
The Women’s Circle is thrilled to thank their generous donors for enabling their growth and success. Without the generosity of Pomodori, Sushi Spot, First Quality, Sterling Electronics, Mimulo, Beautiful Fabrics, The Printhouse, and Zakons, these programs would not be possible.
Join the Women’s Circle for their first special event of the new season: brunch with Shlucha Miriam Lipskier, co-founder and director of the Chabad Student Center at Emory University, in honor of Chof-Beis Shvat this Sunday, January 26, at 10:30 AM.
