The Sisterhood of Temple Beth El is a volunteer-run organization of active, modern Jewish women, driven to make our local Jewish and temple community a better place for all who walk through its doors.  Whatever our temple community needs, be it routine or remarkable, Sisterhood is a crucial part of what keeps Temple Beth El running and thriving.  Come foster sisterhood with us at any commitment level.  All we ask is that you bring an open mind and an open heart.

Women today are busier than ever, we get it!  Whether you come to just one event or join a committee, you have a place in our Sisterhood. We sponsor daytime, evening and weekend programs, come join us to get a feel for our organization.
