Sisterhood

Sisterhood is one of the vital arms of the Synagogue. As a Sisterhood member, you can lend your unique voice and talents to the exquisite mosaic of women in our community.

Sisterhood offers a variety of educational, cultural, ritual, and social programs which enrich our mind and spirit. We contribute to local non-profit organizations and stand firmly behind our beloved homeland of Israel.
