Sisterhood serves the congregation, supports the religious school and our youth, and provides educational and social programming for its members.  It is open to all women who support the Women’s League mission, and we welcome non-Jewish spouses/partners.  We strive to provide programming that serves the needs of our diverse members.  We have a study session with the Rabbi every Wednesday at 10 am.  Recent programs have included the Kiddush lunch during the gala celebration and a panel discussion on Jewish parenting. Upcoming events are listed below and are open to all.

Sisterhood also raises funds to support these programs and the congregation.  Two ongoing fundraisers are the Judaica Shop and the yearly Nearly New Sale.  We hope both are useful to you.
