Beth El was proud to host this years Women’s League Central Great Lakes Region Spring Conference. From start to finish, the event was filled with engaging presentations and discussions, prayer, and socializing. The conference began on Sunday afternoon with the Opening Plenary. Later that evening, the conference attendees and many Beth El congregants joined together to honor Karen Weiss at the Valued Volunteer Dinner.
On Monday, the day began with Shacharit, followed by several breakout sessions with our own Ali Drumm and Rachel Kamin. Artist Howard Schwartz gave a tour of his current work in the Rissman Kol Ami Collection. Rachel Heger spoke about “I Support the Girls” and guest speaker Hazzan Steven Stoehr spoke at the Torah Fund Awards Lunch. The conference continued on Tuesday, when attendees took a trip to the Illinois Holocaust Museum for a docent-led tour.
Kol hakavod to Sisterhood Co-Presidents Rachel Ferber, Mary Ellen Bowers, and Karen Weiss for their hard work organizing this tremendous event!
