40 In touch
women came together one morning to enjoy a much needed respite from Purim
This was no
ordinary coffee morning. As we surrounded the elegant buffet table to fill our
plates we were quite taken aback by the presence of a seemingly obnoxious
visitor. “Who needs fruits? I have them at home”, “Oh no I can’t eat anything
dairy”. But as she took her seat in the front of the room and continued with
her tirade on everything from her weight to her daughter-in-law, we knew that
this was the purpose of our visit today.
Rotstein (ADAR, aka Rifky Gluck) entertained us with deep yet humorous words of
wisdom interspersed with plenty advice. We cried with laughter and held our sides
as she shared her stories and ended off with a jolly dance accompanied by a
rendition of shoshnas yakov sung backwards!
reached the climax as Rifky brought out her accordion and we joined together in
raffle topped off the event with the lucky winners leaving with gorgeous mishloach
manos arrangements in hand, the generous donations of Gift Gallery, Linen
Shop, Grapevine, Chocolate Fantasies and Gift Centre.
