Tikvat Israel’s Women’s Network met on Sunday, Jan. 6, to celebrate Rosh Chodesh Shevat (the new month of Shevat) with Israeli dancing. TI member and veteran Israeli dance instructor Shirley Waxman taught the dances. A few of the 20 participants were new to Israeli dancing, and Waxman suggested that anyone having difficulty following the steps should just do what many dancers do — fudge it. Women’s Network will be getting together Feb. 3 to learn to bake challah with Beth Smith. Details coming soon.
