About Us

Temple Beth El Sisterhood

We are an organization of dynamic women.  We gather together in friendship for programs to benefit the Temple and our Community, in addition to social activities and study. Also, Sisterhood provides for the growth of the individual so that each woman may find an opportunity to fulfill her potential as a person.  We encourage creativity and leadership as a Jewish woman in a Jewish atmosphere.

For Our Congregation

Each and every year we fulfill a substantial commitment to our Temple’s general fund plus additional gifts to enhance our Synagogue. This is made possible through our fundraisers and profit from our Judaica  Shop which we sponsor, and our Sisterhood Calendar.

For Our Youth

We give Camperships to Jewish Youth Summer Camps. We give Youth Scholarships to assist young people in leadership training with a URJ sponsored educational experience such as NFTY in the United States and Israel, as well as the Arachim Program through Jewish Federation. We support our Youth Choir. We support our Torah School and we sponsor our Half–Pint Havurah Program for children 6 months to 6 years. Sisterhood presents every Bar / Bat Mitzvah and every Confirm and with a personal gift, and sends hamantaschen to our college students.

Sisterhood needs the support of All of the Women of our Congregation help us achieve our goals. We are committed, involved and energized, and have fun along the way. We are a part of the Women of Reform Judaism (WRJ), the Federation of Temple Sisterhoods.
