Fostering camaraderie across generations and promoting community involvement through service activities

Our Sisterhood is a community of women joined together to accomplish more than each of us could do alone. Sisterhood offers an opportunity for women to share friendships and the work of our hands, hearts, and spirits for the benefit of our community.

We sponsor a variety of projects and events for our members’ enjoyment and for the benefit of the entire TBI community. Our Sunday Cafe provides an opportunity to meet and shmooze while enjoying bagels and other treats.  We invite speakers on a variety of topics to educate and entertain us. We sponsor Simcha Scholarships that send kids to camp and to conferences all over the world. We have offered Jewish cooking classes to Talmud Torah students and continue to be strong supporters of the Jewish Federation’s annual Mitzvah Day.

Sisterhood has traditionally taken a special interest in TBI’s kitchen since it is used by our whole community. We purchased a new freezer and had several new cabinets installed recently.  We love to partner with other TBI service groups as we did with the Cabaret we co-sponsored with Brotherhood and the Queer Chavurah. It was grand fun that filled the social hall to overflowing and exceeded all our expectations.

No matter what interests you, whether you like best to work or to play, you will find something you enjoy in Sisterhood. Membership is only $18 per year, or $36 for a generous mitzvah membership. No one is ever turned away for lack of funds.  Click here to join.
