Sisterhood of Temple Beth El Israel is a dynamic organization representing women at all stages of life. The group is united in its commitment and support of the congregation.  The Sisterhood focuses on providing interesting and contemporary programs at monthly meetings and encourages lifelong learning efforts.

Sisterhood dues support:

           Weekly onegs after Shabbat services

           Gifts for bar and bat mitzvah children

The Sisterhood Judaica Shop, Ida Rubin Book of Life, and the “fun” raisers help provide a substantial monetary gift to the temple each year.

Sisterhood meetings are the second Tuesday each month at 12:30 p.m. with educational, informational, and fun programs.  Bring your own lunch, and Sisterhood will provide dessert. 

The Book Club meets the first Tuesday of the month at 12:00 noon in the library.
