The Sisterhood is the dedicated women’s auxiliary at Congregation Beth Israel. This organization contributes to and sponsors many of the programs and activities that make our congregation the great community that it is, including planning events & supporting programs, and hosting congregational dinners and luncheons. The Sisterhood does all this in a warm, friendly, and welcoming atmosphere that makes affiliation with the Sisterhood an enjoyable experience while at the same time providing an opportunity to “give something back.” All members are invited to our monthly meetings, the first Tuesday of every month at 7:15 p.m. Consider becoming a part of the Sisterhood by joining or simply supporting with a gift of time or a donation.
Beth Israel Sisterhood Religious School Fund partially supports Sisterhood projects in our Beth Israel Religious School. The Sisterhood has purchased large screen televisions and digital video cameras for the school. Other past gifts have included some of the non-glamorous but important things such as window shades, radiator covers, and painting — and smaller gifts that we provide every year such as Chanukah candles, Purim candy, and Succoth decorations. Additionally our Sisterhood each year gives Confirmation Bibles to Confirmands.
The YES Fund is a Women of Reform Judaism (WRJ) national effort that supports programs for Youth (maintains 8 summer camps), as well as Education and Scholarship (Union for Reform Judaism high school, college and rabbinic education programs, the Religious Action Center in Washington DC, support of the WRJ Rabbi Alexander M. Schindler Religious Teacher Training Program in small and/or isolated Jewish communities).
