B’nai Abraham Sisterhood Annual Bowlathon Set

The Sisterhood at Temple B’nai Abraham is bowling for the Leo Baeck Education Center in Haifa, Israel, on Sunday, Dec. 11, from noon to 2 p.m. at Hanover Lanes in Hanover.  Leo Baeck is dedicated to educating Israel's most underprivileged, at-risk children and teens—those with special needs, youngsters from families living in poverty, and children from Ethiopian immigrant families.  For these children especially, the gift of education is the most empowering gift of all. 

Bowlathon is a fun way to support Israel and to spend a couple of fun-filled hours with family and friends.  There will be raffles and prizes. The fees are $15 for individuals, and $50 for families of up to five members, and include bowling shoes, tee shirt with donors listed, pizza, dessert, beverage. All are invited to attend.

In addition to recruiting bowlers for this event, we are seeking families, businesses and institutions who will lend their sponsorship to this fundraiser with monetary contributions. Please contact the temple office at 973-994-2290 for details.

Jane Eisenstat, Sisterhood President, Diana Daniels, Event Co-Chair  Caryn Epstein, Fundraising Vice President (VP) & Event Co-Chair  and Mindy Greenberg, Fundraising VP & Event Co-Chair  are stewarding this annual event.
