jfhnalogoDuring every time of hostility or need, in virtually every town in Israel, every day, you will find Federation at work.  Federation helps those who need us the most.  However, we can not help those in need without your support.  Today, Israel truly needs your support.  Every donation made to JFHNA is greatly appreciated. There is no donation too small.  When we call in the next few days or weeks, please give from your heart. If you wish to designate a donation to a specific Israeli charity, we can help you do this.  Please contact any Board member of JFHNA.

Esti Trudeau, daughter of Miry and Richard Trudeau, was awarded the City of Huntsville/CAFY Young Citizen Award.



Tea 1
In August, the Sisterhood Membership Tea was held at the Goodman’s home (Thank You!).  Ana and her committee planned a great afternoon for us.  Chef Sara Brigadier prepared a beautiful presentation of gourmet foods that were even more delicious than they looked!







Etz Chayim Picnic, 2014
Our Annual Picnic was held at the Nature Trail on Green Mountain. The Men’s Club provided dessert to accompany the lunches we brought to enjoy under the trees and in front of the pond. People and pets alike enjoyed the day of company and relaxation.






Purim, 2014
 Etz Chayim’s Purim celebration was a fun time for kids of all ages! We began with a yummy Hot Dog Supper for everyone who attended, then we enjoyed the Purim Shpiel, which included participation by the young and the not so young. Finally, we had a Purim Hat contest. Everyone wins at this kind of festivity!





 TU B'SHVAT0001For Tu B’Shevat, 2014, Shirley and Ted Roberts donated two fig trees that were planted with a bit of  help from all who attended! The Rabbi was on hand, and we had some lovely refreshments for the celebration. BBYO members presented a poem, and we had a Hebrew song, too.  Luckily, the weather eased up, and we had a beautiful day for planting in January!







Etz Chayim Family Feud Night and Spaghetti Dinner! We had a great time with our own version of the Family Feud game.  ”Vanna” was even on hand–as elegant as ever!  We had lots of fun and laughs as well as a delicious meal together. What could be better?
