Here are just some of the ways you can get involved with Sisterhood!
Thanks to the generosity of our members, we were able to deliver Thanksgiving Baskets for 35 families in need and provide 11 coats for a new initiative called "Bundle Up for Grizzlies"!
Supporting the Students of Greenbriar Elementary by providing food during school breaks and books year round. We will be collecting food for spring break from January 1- March 13!
Rosh Chodesh, or head of the month, celebrates the new Jewish month and the appearance of the new moon. The connection between Rosh Chodesh and women dates back to biblical times when tradition tells us women refused to participate in the sin of the Golden Calf and were thus rewarded with Rosh Chodesh. According to kabbalistic teachings, women share a special relationship with the moon, and as such they have special reason to celebrate Rosh Chodesh. Each month a Sisterhood member will announce the Rosh Chodesh with a personal reading to celebrate women and share this observance with the community.
We are looking for volunteers to be Rosh Chodesh readers throughout the year. Readers are provided with an introduction and can select a passage, poem, or writing of her choice.
All are welcome to join Sisterhood study with the Rabbi on designated Wednesday mornings throughout the year!
Join us to discuss compelling articles in the “independent, Jewish and frankly feminist magazine,” Lilith.
