Our Sisterhood has enjoyed more than 75 years of affiliation with the Women’s League for Conservative Judaism, the world’s largest network of synagogue women! Here at TBEMC, our membership is inclusive of all with a wide variety of interests, ages, and backgrounds, 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, as well as our USY and Kadima Youth Groups. We contribute annually to the Temple’s general fund. We provide a gift to each Bar and Bat Mitzvah.
Programs – Our monthly meetings and brunches include a wide variety of exciting programs, including joint programs with the Men’s Club, the Religious School, and local community groups..
Gift Shop – Support the Temple by shopping with us, your source for great gifts and Judaica!
Gift Cards – Our gift card program allows members to give 5% of their regular shopping expenses back to the Temple, at no cost to members. Earn money for the Temple while you shop from your favorite shops and grocery stores.
Mishloach Manot – A festive Purim fundraiser, we prepare delicious gift bags for you to give to your friends and family.
More Fundraising! – Wine sales, raffles, tribute cards, and our ever-popular rummage sales!
