Welcome to CHW Victoria
Shalom from Victoria. We wish you and your families a Shana Tova. May you have Peace,Health and Happiness in the New Year.
This past year has been a very busy one, with some varied and interesting programs. Betsi Boeno, a newcomer to our Victoria community, from Turkey, enlightened us with a talk and slideshow on the “Jewish Community in Turkey”. We have started a new program this spring.
Every two months, we celebrate members’ birthdays in a different restaurant. This birthday celebration has a fundraising component as well, as we are raising funds for the CHW Hadassim Children and Youth Village Therapeutic Centre. Our first “Walk in the Park” and picnic on the Victoria Day long weekend, was an astounding success and all agreed that it would be the first of many.
Our fall program proves to be exciting. Our opening meeting will be a combination of “CHW 100th birthday celebration” and a speakers’ forum, in which 3 of our members will be speaking about their experiences and programs in Israel. For the third time, our Past President, Sharon Fitch, has graciously opened up her Succah to our members. We all look forward to a wonderful afternoon on October 8, 2017.
Our Executive for 2017/2018 remains almost constant. We thank Susan Halpert (member-at large) for all her hard work and we welcome Selma Linzer on board as our new member-at-large.
Our members are Sharon Fitch, Past President, Damaris Notte, Secretary, Esther Laredo, Treasurer, Eleanor Mintz, Newsletter Editor, Celia Negin, Membership and Josie Davidson, Program.
