Sisterhood's COVID Cookbook

Sisterhood's COVID Cookbook


“Recipes and Memories that Nourished Us Through the Pandemic”

Please note that payment must be made in advance. Ordinarily, we place orders in bulk, and there may be a delay from the time you order until the time we print the next 25 books.

However, in a special fall deal, Sisterhood has pre-ordered 25 soft-cover editions
of the book — making this the perfect Chanukah gift for those who act quickly!

While supplies last, we are pairing “Recipes and Memories” with “Vegetables for Breakfast from A to Z: Change your breakfast, Change your life,” Nancy Wolfson-Moche’s cookbook that inspired our Spring 2022 Donor Event.

For $72, the first 12 people placing an order can get both cookbooks, plus our Digital Edition of “Recipes and Memories.”

As always, all net proceeds from book sales are dedicated to temple-related activities that Sisterhood supports, including the Women’s Seder, Sisterhood Shabbat, holiday receptions, temple improvements (such as kitchen renovations), religious school, and student leadership programs.

Alternatively, if you don’t want both books (or if you’re not one of our first 12 orders), the cost is $60 for the soft-cover “Recipes and Memories” and the Digital Edition. (Please note that we’ve stopped printing the hardcover Collector’s Edition.)

Please indicate below if you’re hoping to be among the first 12 to purchase both books and how many copies of the Fall Deal or Soft-Cover Edition you want.

Once we accept 25 orders, we must place our next order in bulk. We will do so once we reach another 25 book orders.
