  Sisterhood Calendar
 
 
Sisterhood is a vibrant part of our Synagogue community. We are an active group of women of all ages. We meet regularly and often: to celebrate together the Jewish holidays; to explore ethnic dining, Jewish history and Jewish literature; to have fun together through jewelry design, scrap booking, knitting, mah-jongg, movies, and book clubs.

As Sisterhood women, we join together to serve our congregation and community, to learn and share, and to celebrate Jewish living, our families and ourselves. Through Sisterhood, we enhance the quality and ideals of contemporary Jewish living to ensure the future of progressive Judaism.

For our congregation, Sisterhood purchases and presents gifts for our Bar and Bat Mitzvahs, underwrites Red Cross training for staff, maintains a scholarship program for the “March of the Living” and supports special projects for the Religious School, ECLC and the High Holy days.

For the worldwide community, we donate funds to many worthwhile causes, including World Union for Progressive Judaism, Jewish Braille Institute, Jewish World Watch for Sudan relief, Israel, disaster relief, JWB Jewish Chaplains Council, New Directions, and The David Project.

As a member of Women of Reform Judaism (WRJ), our Sisterhood is one of 550 local Sisterhoods in the United States and Canada with a total membership of over 75,000 women. Through the WRJ, we serve Jewish and humanitarian causes worldwide and advocate for pressing social policy concerns including civil rights, women’s issues, public education, health care and social welfare. WRJ’s involvement is grounded in our identity as Jewish women committed to Jewish values.

Sisterhood engages every constituency of our synagogue women, from young to old, in Sisterhood life, and is an enthusiastic advocate for the WRJ motto Stronger together.
