About Our Sisterhood

Bima decorations for Succoth
Every Sukkoth the Sisterhood provides beautiful decorations for the bima

Over the past many years our Sisterhood has played a pivotal role in the life of Temple Sinai. Sisterhood offers a variety of opportunities for women to become active participants in congregational life. If you are a Sisterhood member, hopefully you have participated in our programs and activities. If not, you are invited to become a member of our Sisterhood and,in doing so, a member of Women of Reform Judaism (WRJ), the national organization to which our Sisterhood belongs.

A quick review of the Temple Bulletin reveals the many opportunities Sisterhood makes available to women of all ages and interests. Our purpose is to collectively express our Judaism by spending time socializing and learning together. Sisterhood sponsors many events and provides much to Temple Sinai.

Did you know that Sisterhood members also support world-wide projects through our affiliation with WRJ? This organization, composed of over 100,000 women in North America, works to strengthen Reform Judaism around the world. WRJ founded the North American Federation of Temple Youth and the Jewish Braille Institute of America. WRJ is the largest annual contributor to the scholarship fund of the Hebrew Union College Jewish Institute of Religion. WRJ includes in its objectives the empowerment of women to be advocates on behalf of various issues.

The donation for a yearly membership in Sisterhood is just $30. Please send your check to
