Sisterhood

Temple Beth-El’s Sisterhood is a place to find friendship, warmth, sharing, and make new connections to the women of our congregation. We provide opportunities for personal and spiritual growth, and fulfillment in a Jewish atmosphere, through social and learning experiences. Sisterhood supports the Temple community through volunteerism, leadership, and financial assistance as well as affiliation with the Women of Reform Judaism [WRJ].

Sisterhood offers a wide range of activities and programs, both educational and social, to engage the women of Temple Beth-El. We contribute annually to a summer camp scholarship for Temple Beth-El children, we stay in touch with Temple Beth-El college students through our College Connection holiday boxes, and we oversee the Temple gift shop. In addition, we have an ongoing initiative to help feed our neighbors who are experiencing food insecurity.

Our programs and meetings are listed on the calendar and below. Please call the Temple office at (847) 205-9982 for more information about Sisterhood. Your membership and participation in Sisterhood are vital components of our Temple life.
