What is the Sisterhood?
Sisterhood is the collective presence, voice and strength of the women of Congregation Beth Tefillah. It is where women can meet, learn, bond and work together for the benefit of our community and one another.
This year one of our main focuses will center on getting to know one another, promoting closer relationships amongst Sisterhood members - simply making new friends.
In planning its program this year, Sisterhood will try to balance the need for spiritual fulfillment, stimulating intellectual activities and enjoyable social occasions. We believe that a rewarding Jewish life requires both continuous learning and the development of warm social relationships with the people in the community.
What activities does Sisterhood participate in?
Sisterhood provides a rich and varied program of educational, cultural, and social activities. In addition, the Sisterhood provides Chesed meals for those who are ill or are sitting shiva, gifts for new babies, fundraising through Mishloach Manot & the Rosh Hashanah Honey project and visiting the elderly. Sisterhood sponsors several Holiday events throughout the year, including the Shavuot lunch and Chanukah Dinner. Sisterhood also purchases items needed for the shul such as kitchen items, furnishings etc.
