Sisterhood of Temple B’nai Chaim

Temple B’nai Chaim Sisterhood is a warm, vibrant, and welcoming  community of women. We encourage the fellowship, spirituality, and social connections of our membership through the social and educational opportunities we offer. We help support Temple B’nai Chaim (TBC) and the broader community with a wide range of activities. And, through our affiliation with the Women of Reform Judaism, we help strengthen the voice of women worldwide. We live and love Judaism, one another, and our wider community.

Sisterhood opportunities for connection and learning:

  • Opening Dinner – a time to socialize and kick off the year
  • Full synagogue break fast following Yom Kippur
  • In-home pot luck Havdalah dinners open to all congregants
  • Tu b’Shevat women’s seder
  • Sisterhood Hannukah Party
  • Ogden House luncheons for local seniors
  • NEW! Women’s Spirituality Retreat – a weekend dedicated to spirituality and fellowship
  • NEW! Mussar discussion group  

Sisterhood’s contributions  to TBC and our greater community:

  • Runs Rosh Hoshanah honey sale fundraiser (supports Sisterhood budget)
  • Holds Purim Mishloach Manot basket fundraiser (supports Religious School budget)
  • Provides ritual gifts to all B’nai mitzvah students
  • Offers apples and honey, latkes, and other support to religious school throughout the year
  • Contributes to TBC wish lists / special needs as occasion arises
  • Supports TBC operating budget.

Our affiliation with the Women of Reform Judaism (WRJ) network, enables Sisterhood to work with women worldwide to:

  • Provide scholarships for rabbinic and cantorial students
  • Educate about women’s health issues
  • Support youth activities through the YES fund
  • Work to end domestic violence
  • Support the Jewish Braille Institute
  • Support the World Union of Progressive Judaism

We are engaged, we love Judaism and TBC. We come together to support our mission of Tikkun Olam, and have a lot of fun in the process. If you would like to be a part of this dynamic, committed group of women, click here to become a member, or contact sisterhood@templebnaichaim.org.
