Sisterhood

Our sisterhood, formed in 1919, is the oldest auxiliary of the synagogue. Our most significant contribution to the synagogue has been our Sisterhood Sanctuary. Our women have mentored the Confirmation Classes, instituted an Adult Education program, participated in our Adult Bat Mitzvah program hosted theater trips and more. The canopy at the entrance to the synagogue is one of the many projects that have been funded and donated by the Sisterhood Gift Shop, in addition to a major cash contribution at the end of each fiscal year. 

Our Sisterhood welcomes you to join us and become active. As Sarah Addison Allen, The Peach Keeper, said: “We're connected, as women. It's like a spider web. If one part of that web vibrates, if there's trouble, we all know it, but most of the time we're just too scared, or selfish, or insecure to help. But if we don't help each other, who will?”

We are proud to say that our Sisterhood is a vibrant part of Beth Sholom. Our first Board Meeting of the year is September 6, 2017 at 10:00 am. 

Sisterhood’s Religious Committee invites volunteers to string vegetables, hang pictures and make our Sukkah even better than last year. Dates are: Sunday, October 1; Monday, October 2; and Tuesday October 3. Erev Sukkah is October 4th.
