Sisterhood is a vibrant and active group, serving many key roles in the daily activities of the synagogue. Funds raised by Sisterhood are used to help improve our synagogue.
Past projects include providing funds to refurbish the sanctuary lobby and purchasing three canopies which were used at the Earth Day event and are available to be used during outdoor synagogue activities. Sisterhood sponsors Yom Tov kiddushes as well as non-sponsored Shabbat kiddushes (see below for opportunities to sponsor a Kiddush or Friday night oneg). Sisterhood also provides the Mazelgram program – an easy way to send Rosh Hashanah greetings to your Kol Ami friends and family.
Every year Sisterhood has an exciting year of programs and events planned. We love to partner with other branches of the synagogue like Men’s Club, Kol Yeladim Religious School and the Security committee to provide some of these programs. Please check out our up-coming events to see what interests you. Of course with these programs/events come many volunteer opportunities including helping prepare a Friday night oneg or Kiddush on Shabbat morning, helping put out the food and/or clean up on Saturday, working on a committee to plan/organize and assist at the event/program. Your help makes these wonderful activities happen. Don’t forget to visit our well stocked Gift Shop for all your Judaica needs – Sheila will be delighted to assist you.
Sisterhood dues are $36 and we would love to have you become a member of Sisterhood if you are not already a member. First year synagogue members receive a complimentary membership, we just need your information. To join sisterhood, please click here for the application.
Let Sisterhood share your Simcha!
Does your family have a Bar or Bat Mitzvah coming up? Celebrating a special Birthday, Anniversary, Baby Naming, Auf Ruf or other Simcha? Would you like to sponsor a Kiddush or Kiddush luncheon? Or would you prefer sponsoring a simple Friday night oneg following services? Look no further! Sisterhood will be happy to help. We will cater any Kiddush to fit your budget and customize it to fit your needs, whether it is a basic Kiddush or more lavish for up to 175 people. We would also be happy to put together a simple sweets and fruit oneg for you.
For more information please contact: Cindy Korenvaes at [email protected] to discuss being a sponsor.
Sisterhood loves to bake! Once a month we meet to bake sweet treats that are used at Kiddush or onegs. Be sure to watch for announcements of baking mornings. Interested in becoming a regular member of baking days? Contact Cindy Korenvaes at [email protected] to be put on the list!

P’RI YADEHAH P’ri yadehah, which means “the fruit of her hands,” is a phrase from Eishet Chayil in the Book of Proverbs (31:31). To commemorate the 100th year of Women’s League for Conservative Judaism and the 75th year of the Torah Fund Campaign, we celebrate women’s achievements through creativity—the fruit of her hands—in the family, workplace, home, synagogue, and community. Women dedicate their lives as volunteers, as leaders in the Jewish and secular worlds, as scholars, scientists, artists, business leaders, and more. The wheat branch featured in the 2017 pin/pendant signifies the sustenance we wish for all our family and friends, and the olive branch represents our prayers for peace.
