 Kadima Women's Group Forming

We want to explore the possibility of organizing a Women’s Group at Kadima. The purpose would be social and cultural or whatever the participants want to make of it.
So far a small representative number of women members have been polled and there appears to be some interest in getting together.

You are invited to an initial exploratory meeting on Saturday April 21 at 11:00 am at Kadima, immediately following the 9:00 - 11:00 adult education class.

I hope you will attend, and please contact me if you have any questions.

Best wishes,

Rabbi David Oler
