Sisterhood is a group of women working together in a supportive environment, deriving personal fulfillment and spiritual growth as we endeavor to meet the goals and needs of Temple Beth-El and to improve the quality of life in our local and greater communities. We give voice to modern Jewish women, continuing traditional values and developing new traditions and new spirituality.

Membership in Sisterhood offers a unique opportunity for women to share time together with other women, to form friendships and to explore our commitments from a woman's perspective. We have been and remain critical to the Temple's many successes, and we help our congregants add Jewish depth to their lives.


We offer a wide variety of activities and services, including:
  • New Member Breakfast
  • Sisterhood Shabbat Service
  • Social Events
  • Paid-Up Membership Events
  • Community Service Projects (such as Rummage Sale & Thanksgiving Basket Drive)
  • Rosh Chodesh (New Month) Torah Study Group
  • Annual Women’s Day of Renewal
  • Woman of Valor Dinner
  • Judaica Shop/Chanukah Shop
  • End-of-Year Dinner
  • Joint Events With Brotherhood and other temple organizations
  • Gifts to B'Nei Mitzvah & Confirmation students
