Kadima* Summer Potluck Picnic


We will gather for our annual, wonderful, potluck picnic on Betsy Hersher’s famous big deck (1444 Stratford Road, Deerfield) on Sunday, July 14 at 4:00 PM. All Hakafa members and prospective members are invited. Kadima will provide paper goods, drinks, and the main course. You provide a salad, side dish, or dessert to share with the group. Besides eating and visiting, we’ll talk about our plans for the coming year. It will be a wonderful opportunity to see friends and welcome new ones. We hope you will join us!
Please RSVP by July 7 to Betsy Hersher (, cell phone 847-454-5109, home phone 847-945-5974) or Sharon Gutan (, cell phone 847-989-4183, home phone 847-256-0638) and let us know:
  • How many will be in your party (Invite friends! The more the merrier!)
  • Which of the 3 items (salad, side, dessert) you’ll bring
  • Whether you have special dietary needs for the main course (vegetarian? allergic to chicken?)
  • If you think we should add a member or prospective member to the invitation list


*Kadima ("forward" in Hebrew) is a Hakafa initiative formed in the fall of 2013. Primarily made up of "forward" thinking, dynamic seniors, it is really open to all interested congregants.
