The weather has been so nice lately it makes me!feel like Spring may be here early this year. The arrival of Spring in Las Vegas always brings many exciting things. I love it when the peach trees in my backyard bloom with pink owers,!and the weather is sunny and temperate too. !Its the perfect time of year to spend time outside. !We've been doing some new gardening, walking our dogs!more, and starting!some!much!needed projects around the house. !Although, I"m sure I wouldn"t be too upset with a few!rainy days before it gets too hot,!I"m quite happy to say goodbye to the rainy, gloomy, cold days of winter.!! Spring for our Women"s League means a!lot!of fun upcoming!events. I hope you'll !all!come take part with us.! First, there is a Torah Fund Luncheon this coming weekend!on!Sunday, March 2nd. Our guest performer is the famous actress,!Charlene Sher. Then for all of our TBS families,!March 9th is Mishloach Manot Mania. Come make Mishloach Manot boxes for family and friends. Add your own special style to the!decorations of the box!you give while fullling the mitzvah of Purim. In about a month, on April 30th,!Women"s League is having its annual Election meeting. Our speaker, Chris Baughman,!will address the issue of human trafcking around the world, and in Las Vegas specically.! Between these great programs Women"s League also has many ongoing programs such as Circle of Prayers,!Rosh Chodesh meetings, and the get-togethers of our numerous Special Interest Groups.!I"m sure I"m forgetting something, because there's always new and exciting programming for me to look forward to, but as!you can see the Women's League calendar is full of interesting events.!

Welcome to the TF Corner, where all the latest news about Torah Fund will be shared. We hope you have each received the beautiful invitation in the mail inviting you to attend our annual TF event. It will be on Sunday, March 2nd at TBS in the large Social Hall from 10 a.m.-12 p.m. The doors will be open at 9:45 so that you can nd a seat and be ready to begin our fabulous program. This year, we are honoring those special women who have continually donated to the TF campaign at the Guardian level or above. The following women deserve our thanks and recognition: Lovee Arum, Shirley Chaplin, Helen Feldman, Ruth Goldfarb, Brenda Katz, Flora Mason, Blanche Meisel, Susan Molasky, Lillian Radomsky, Priscilla Schwartz-Hodes, Marci Seltzer, Sharon Sigesmund Pierce, Doris SorokyAarenau, Betsi Steinberg and Faye Steinberg. In addition to a wonderful luncheon prepared by our own Kitchen Krew, we have the opportunity to be entertained by Charlene Sher, a WLTBS member, an acclaimed actress with a vast theater background who will perform "A Tale of Three Women." When you support TF, you are ensuring that Conservative Judaism will remain alive and well. Please help us fulll our goal of always making sure that there are Conservative Rabbis, Cantors, Educators and Lay Leaders to teach this and future generations. For any information regarding this event, please call Brenda Katz at 242.8577.


There are so many wonderful things that Women's League does because there are so many things which all of you do for Women's League. Some of these are more obvious than others. We often speak of the success of our programs and the work that went into making them that way. We support each other and our synagogue. I would like to speak of one of these because it has touched my inner self and provided a model for my children and grandchildren. I hope you too will choose to become engaged in this manner. Last May (2013) I recited Haftorah Naso at Women's League Shabbat. #I spent two months learning not only the Troupe but the story behind the Haftorah, the story of Sampson. My teacher, Lillian Radomsky, helped me learn to chant the Haftorah and to understand the lessons it taught. # We talked about enunciating word endings as well as philosophy. We got to know and appreciate each other in so many ways. #And, what I learned is serving as a model for my children and grandchildren. #My rst grandchild will be reciting her #haftorah soon. #She knows she can go to her safta for help because her safta DID IT TOO! # I sincerely hope I have made her and Women's League proud. #You can do it too. I can recommend a wonderful teacher and friend. Diane Kaiser Women's League Vice President for Public Relations


We continue to welcome new and returning women to Women"s League. We are excited to announce we are 176 women strong! Just a reminder it is important that we as Women"s League members support events at the synagogue. Please check your email for upcoming Women"s League events. The programming committee has been working hard in planning some great events this spring season. Women"s League is open to all women; you don"t have to be a Temple Beth Sholom member to join. If you know of anyone that might be interested in learning more about Women"s League or joining, please email me. I will be happy to contact them and give them more information. My email is
