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. Our College Program has been a model for other synagogues, and has received national attention. 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. Also, we have many other major projects planned for the future.

Through the years, as Conservative Judaism evolved, permitting full participation of women in worship services. One of the highlights of the year is the Sisterhood Shabbat service that is led entirely by our members.
