Sisterhood is a welcoming arm of the Temple where women get together for educational programs, social activities and fund raising. Sisterhood is affiliated with Women’s League for Conservative Judaism. Sisterhood provides flowers for the Sanctuary during the High Holiday season, on Pesach an on Shavuot. Clink the link for a picture of the flowers on the Bimah for Shavuot.
Monthly programs include informative and interesting speakers on a variety of topics, book reviews, arts and crafts projects and movies. Sisterhood conducts a Shabbat morning service every spring which is always a spiritually uplifting event. We also host a Paid Up Dinner for our members in November and a Donor Dinner in May.
Sisterhood sponsors a variety of fund raisers throughout the year, including the sale of Siddurim, cards for simchas and memorials, book reviews, sale of supermarket scrip, and a game night. Proceeds are donated to the Temple to subsidize on-going projects.
Every year Sisterhood honors a deserving member as its Torah Fund Benefactor. Proceeds from the luncheon and sale of the Torah Fund Pin are donated to the Jewish Theological Seminary. The 2022-2023 recipient was Linda Benish. Click the link for an article on this event that was published in the Garden State Region News on May 19, 2023.
