Congregation Beth Israel’s Sisterhood is a women’s group interested in female camaraderie and activities that support the synagogue. Among its many projects and activities, Sisterhood provides a Jewish calendar for all congregants, helps maintain the social hall and kitchen, and arranges for refreshments at Shabbat onegs and other special occasions. Each Bar or Bat Mitzvah candidate receives a special gift from the Sisterhood. This group also sponsors the community break-the-fast after Yom Kippur and Jewish camp scholarships for members’ children, and gives to the community at large.
The group gets together at members' homes monthly for a book group (see online calendar or Shofar newsletter for dates/locations). Here is a list of some past reads: Book group picks
