Sisterhood. The sustenance of our community.

Through a variety of spiritual, social, cultural, educational, and philanthropic activities, this wonderful alliance of dedicated and powerful women — all of different ages, backgrounds, and interests — forge lifelong bonds of friendship, deepen their connection to Judaism, and play a vital role in enhancing the everyday life of Beth El.

Programs such as our annual Interfaith Luncheon (now in its 44th year), “She Nailed It” with Habitat For Humanity, and the Women’s Empowerment Series expose our members to new experiences. And our fundraising projects help us to make major contributions to both tikkun olam initiatives and the synagogue’s annual budget.

Empowerment is defined as “the process of becoming stronger and more confident, especially in controlling one’s life and claiming one’s rights”. But empowerment can also have different meanings to different people, depending on their experiences, circumstances, hopes, and dreams. In this series, we start a powerful journey to redefine gender roles and bring new resources to the tribe of women within our community.

There’s no wrong way to be a member of our Sisterhood.

The women of Sisterhood are doers. But whether you have a life jam-packed with non-negotiable commitments, or a fluid schedule, there is a place for you in Sisterhood. Some members are born volunteers and some would rather participate only in activities that interest them; your membership is welcome at any level.

For upcoming Sisterhood events, check out the Calendar and filter for Community.

Sisterhood membership dues are complimentary in the first year you join Beth El, and include a 20% discount in the gift shop on your first time purchase.
