We are an ever-expanding group of women of all ages who enjoy each other’s company. We learn, teach, share, cook, socialize, and perform good deeds to support each other and our synagogue in ways that give us pride and fulfillment. Our synagogue has been transformed into a warm and comfortable place in which to worship, congregate, celebrate, learn, study, shop, and “shmooze” thanks, in large part, to Sisterhood’s presence.
We plan interesting programs and events, and prepare Kiddush luncheons for the holidays. We provide a “helping hand” through our Yad L’ Yad committee where we help to shop, to provide transportation and to visit those in need. We are affiliated with the Women’s League for Conservative Judaism, and actively participate in regional and national activities. In this way, we help to support the Torah Fund campaign to ensure the continuing education of conservative rabbis, cantors and educators at the Jewish Theological Seminary in New York and abroad.
There are always abundant opportunities to participate whether you want to be active or drop-in when time permits. Look for our flyers and informative e-mails. Come as you are and find a comfortable spot in our Sisterhood.
If you have any questions, please contact us at Sisterhood@bnaishalom.net.
