Is it hot enough for you? We can all agree that this has been the hottest summer in memory. But we're not alone – the whole world has been experiencing global warming on a large scale. But the cool weather will be here soon enough. Be patient. We haven't had any events lately – everyone seems to be on vacation or is content to just chill out with a cold drink and a good book – or t.v. program. However, our Friday meetings have become quite a center for socializing and exchanging books. Not a Friday goes by that someone doesn't bring reading material either past or current.
The response to our call to register for our thirty-fifth anniversary celebration was less than overwhelming, so for the moment that is on hold. We may go for it later in the year. For the meanwhile, we hope to see you on Fridays or, at least, to hear from you. You can write to me – Anita – at: email@example.com or firstname.lastname@example.org. You can also call one of our Committee members whose phone numbers appear at the end of this newsletter. If you have ideas or suggestions we would like to hear them.
All of us at ESCA wish you a healthy and peaceful New Year and Well Over the Fast.
CHAI means alive
And also the number 18. Everyone who donates DOUBLE CHAI (36 NIS) or more will be featured in our "To Life!" section. So give life to ESCA and enjoy it. Of course, anonymous gifts will also be appreciated. An idea for a present for one who has it all. Want to give more? 100 NIS makes you a CENTURY DONOR; 50 NIS a JUBILEE DONOR.
Thanks for the donations
NOTE: All donations to ESCA are used for mailing our newsletter and for basic refreshments at our events.
