A Place for Lifelong Learning, Community & Friendship

Sisterhood

A critical part of our synagogue community, the Sisterhood enhances the embrace of community that is one of our congregation’s greatest assets.

Every female member of BJC (and non-members who wish to attend our programs and support our efforts!) is invited to become a member of the Sisterhood.

Annual dues of just $46 entitles a member to participation in a special paid-up-members event, plus reduced cost for all other Sisterhood-sponsored activities.

Throughout the year we offer a range of programs designed to appeal to and accommodate women at various stages in their lives and with diverse interests. Last year’s included an exotic fruit and chocolate tasting, a lesson in the Israeli self-defense art krav maga, introduction to bead jewelry making and a shul-wide trivia night

           

In addition, the Sisterhood runs three major projects:

  • Mishloach Manot, a fundraising initiative through which members send Purim wishes (and a creatively-themed package) to other shul members.
  • Welcome Committee, reaching out to new members of the community with personal contact and a specially-prepared gift.
  • Hospitality Committee, fostering more Shabbat and yom tov meal sharing among members.

We’re always looking for new committee members, so anyone interested serving on any of the committees for these projects, or on the Sisterhood phone or program committee, should contact Lesli or the shul office.

They are all opportunities for our women to become better acquainted, socialize, learn, contribute to the success of BJC -- and have tremendous fun!
