It’s a small world …
Imagine the surprise when Elizabeth Blum Savetsky and Rhoda Bernstein ran into each other in New York City!
The chance encounter happened Tuesday night, Dec. 9, when Rhoda was in the Big Apple for a Hadassah event at the Rebecca Minkoff store, where a percentage of sales benefited The Hadassah Foundation.
Elizabeth was covering the benefit as a New York fashion blogger, as part of her ExcessoriesExpert.com blog.

‘The Frisco Kid’
We all know Dec. 25 wouldn’t be complete without a good movie. Mosey over to Congregation Ahavath Sholom for the next installment of its Showtimes Film Series and catch “The Frisco Kid.” It’s Gene Wilder at his funniest with Harrison Ford as his straight man.
The movie starts at 3:30 p.m. Admission is free and all are welcome.
Hanukkah Sameach to all the TJP readers.
