TBEMC SISTERHOOD

Our Sisterhood has enjoyed over 75 years of affiliation with the Women’s League for Conservative Judaism, the world’s largest network of synagogue women! Here At TBEMC, our  members span a wide range of interests, ages and backgrounds, but we are united by our common goals:

CONNECTION to Jewish women of all ages
COMMITMENT to our synagogue and its children
CONTRIBUTION to the greater Jewish community

We sponsor a variety of educational, cultural, social, and community service programs, including:

Support – We support our Religious School, and USY and Kadima Youth Groups, as well as contributing annually to the Temple’s general fund. We provide a gift of Shabbat candlesticks to each Bar and Bat Mitzvah.
Programs  We have monthly meetings and brunches with exciting programs, including joint programs with the Men’s Club, the Board of Education, and the local Hadassah chapter.
Gift Shop  You can support the Temple by shopping with us, your source for great gifts and Judaica!
Gift Cards – Earn money for the Temple while you shop with gift cards from your favorite shops and grocery stores.
