September Meeting Designed to Renew and Make Friends

Sunday, Sept. 28 at 3 p.m.

We’re back at Jowonio School, on East Genesee in Syracuse (across from Nottingham High School). Come around back to park and come in the back door and go downstairs.

The program is designed for personal sharing and a chance to get to know each other.

Check our Meeting page to get the dates for all the programs that are set for the coming year.

Betty Lamb, our new president, will be leading our meeting in September.

Betty Lamb Becomes President

Betty Lamb has agreed to be  the new WTB President, filling in the term of Joy Pople, who had to step down.  Thanks to Betty for agreeing to lead us through spring.  And thanks to Joy for all she has given to WTB.

Joy Pople

Betty has a background in both Christianity and Judaism. She taught religious education in the Roman Catholic Church and is now active at both Temple Adath Yeshurun and Temple Society of Concord. She is retired from a career in retail and education.

Come to the Sept. 28 meeting and get to know her.

Next Schmai: Tuesday, Sept. 16

We like to try out various restaurants and get together informally to chat. We call is Schmai Time!

The next  Schmai is on  Tuesday, Sept. 16. This time we’re at  Munjed’s Middle Eastern Cafe, 503 Westcott St. in the “Westcott Nation”  east side Syracuse neighborhood.  We’ll gather from 5:30-7:30 and anyone is welcome. We have first-timers often!

This family-owner restaurant has expanded space, now across the street from its previous location. You can sample Middle Eastern, Greek and vegetarian fare.

For October, we will gather at  Sahota Palace, 668 Old Liverpool Road, in Liverpool, on Thursday, Oct 16 at 5:30 p.m.


Like to Read? Come to our Book Club Sept. 22

A Nigerian girl and a British woman  meet on an African beach. That encounter forms the basis for a novel that winds its way through themes of globalization and interconnectedness in Chris Cleave’s book, “Little Bee.”

Here’s a portion of a New York Times review of the book: “ [The two become] inextricably bound through the horror imprinted on their encounter — its impact is hardly shallow. Rather than focusing on postcolonial guilt or African angst, Cleave uses his emotionally charged narrative to challenge his readers’ conceptions of civility, of ethical choice.”

Sound interesting? Pick up a copy at the library or buy it and join a discussion on Monday evening, September 22. Call Jennifer Roberts Crittenden for more information at 633-2817.
