Winter is here, so they say. We may not have the pleasure of seeing autumn leaves floating down from the trees, but we can enjoy the cooling off of the weather. Nights are balmy and quite a bit longer. But don't let the darkness get you down! The Festival of Lights is approaching – Hanukkah (the current favorite spelling of the holiday out of the sixteen possible spellings). We have a new idea to shake things up. Actually, we sort of had to make a change this year from our usual Hanukkah party because a majority of our Committee is committed to be abroad during the holiday. And it wouldn't be a proper party without them. So read on to see our new idea for our celebratory event.
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 to Rebecca Bohbot for a generous double century donation in memory of those we lost last year: Helen Glazer, ob"m, Gila Dahan, ob"m, Eduardo Azares, ob"m and Robert M. Kay, ob"m. “May the living continue the good deeds of those (z’l) that have gone before us” .
Thanks to Eda Asseo for a jubilee+ donation to the stamp fund. And thanks for the nifty books you brought.
Thanks to Max Dahan for a chai donation for stamps. You're always there for us.
Thanks for the donations
NOTE: All donations to ESCA are used for mailing our newsletter and for basic refreshments at our events.
