A conservative, egalitarian synagogue

Sisterhood Overview

The role of women in our congregation has been to inspire a way of life, following the teachings of Judaism. From a small nucleus of 24 to more than 200 women, our goal is to further religious interests in all endeavors.

No one person can do all of this alone. As a community of women, we provide each other with the inspiration to dedicate ourselves to the ideals of Mathilde Schechter, who founded the Women's League for Conservative Judaism in 1918. Her goal "…to serve the cause of Judaism by strengthening the bonds of unity among Jewish women…" is our goal today. Please join us in fulfilling this goal.

Tradition has taught us the value of giving to our community and Sisterhood strives to continue to find and participate in meaningful projects. We contribute funds to the synagogue to purchase items not included in the regular operating budget. We provide candlesticks to all b'nai mitzvah and continue to raise funds to supply meals to the Temple's bereaved families through our Elu D'Varim project.

We are constantly reaching out to include more women. A one-year complimentary membership in Sisterhood is extended to every woman becoming a new TIC member.  

We are affiliated with the Women's League for Conservative Judaism. 



Mah Jongg 

We're looking forward to an exciting year to come that will feature an hour of mah jongg and other social games nearly every month. If you play mah jongg or want to learn, join us! After the games, stay for the programming which is sure to be at  least as interesting and engaging as the mah jongg. If you have a mah jongg set and can teach others to play, come make this another successful year as we continue to provide opportunities to connect and build our community.
