Shana Tova. Sisterhood had a wonderful 2015-16 year with the theme Not Your Mother’s Sisterhood. We laughed so much last year that we changed our theme to Sisterhood Smiles. 

Be sure to look for your weekly Sisterhood Scoop on Tuesdays for updates and details on our activities. If you aren’t getting it please let us know at

If you have friends that might be interested in learning more about our programs, please share their emails with us.

If you would be willing to help out with future Sisterhood events in any way — whether it is something small such as picking up bagels and fruit for schmear or cutting vegetables in the kitchen, or whether you would like a bigger role doing something like helping plan and implement an event — please get in touch with us. We are always available at board meetings, but if you can’t make it to the board meeting, you can always contact Sandy and Ilene by emailing

Upcoming Events

In addition to listing Sisterhood Events here, we cross-post our events to the synagogue's events page, all events are tagged as "sisterhood."

You can also view photos from our past events (or photos on Facebook!), with more to come.
