Connectivity between women is empowering and Sisterhood is a galvanizing experience.

Our intergenerational group offers all that and more as you join not only those in the Temple Israel community, but also beyond with the 65,000+ members of Women of Reform Judaism.  Sisterhood brings a palpable vitality to synagogue life with numerous programs reflecting our Jewish principles and filling critical congregational needs. Among them:

  • Shabbat Onegs
  • Judaica Shop
  • Kitchen Supplies
  • Yom Kippur Break-the-Fast
  • High Holy Days Babysitting
  • Teen Confirmation Trip
  • Chai/High Tea Reception and Auction
  • Mitzvah Menorah
  • Day Spa for the Soul
  • Membership Luncheon
  • Art Museum and Garden Tours
  • Sisterhood Shabbat

You determine your own level of participation – fully involved, occasional involvement, or if you only want to pay your Sisterhood Supporting Membership dues or make a donation.  Every Temple Israel member who identifies as female is automatically a Sisterhood member, but we always appreciate those who further support us as “Supporting Members”.
