Our annual BreakFast took place at 6:45 p.m. on Wednesday, Oct. 9 at the MountainView Ballroom. The menu this year included lox, bagels, cream cheese, egg salad, tuna salad, cheese platter, pumpernickel, sliced vegetables, and babka.

Thanks to Zelda Aaronson and Sylvia Goldin for hosting the September coffee. These are such an important part of the JFG’s events which keeps us close as a group.

The October Ladies’ coffee will take place on Friday, Oct. 18 at 10:30 a.m. hosted by Ellie Adelman and Judi Schumacher at Ellie’s home, 36500 S. Rockcrest Dr.

The Co-ed Book Club will be reading the following books this season:

Spies of No Country: Secret Lies at the Birth of Israel, Matti Friedman; The Tattooist of Auschwitz, Heather Morris; Buttonman, Andrew Gross; Small Great Things, Jodi Picoult; The Son of the Jade Lily, Kristy Manning; A Tale of Love and Darkness, Amos Oz; and The Orphan’s Tale, Pam Genoff.

If you haven’t been to any previous meetings and want to come for any given book, feel free to RSVP and come. The more opinions the better – after all we’re Jewish! For more information please email Sandy Epstein, sandrarenee5@outlook.com.

Please mark your calendars for our upcoming events:

Nov. 2: Potluck; SaddleBrooke One, activity centre

Dec. 22: Chanukah Party/AGM, SaddleBrooke One, The Vistas.

We are now actively seeking members who would be interested in giving a talk to the JFG on any topic of interest other than political. This could be a professional, travel, historical, cultural, etc. topic. If you feel you would like to present such an evening, please contact our president at lanagy@yahoo.com with your name, your topic, and when you would be able to do this. Thanks!
