Sisterhood's Annual Progressive Dinner

Saturday, September 20, 5:30 PM

Join us! The evening begins with appetizers and Selichot, a brief, beautiful service during which together we will change the Torah scroll covers to white as we initiate the season of our own change and renewal in the main sanctuary. This will be followed by appetizers in Lipman Foyer, dinner at individual host homes, and dessert and music at the Oregon Jewish Museum. Learn more.
