Beth Meyer Sisterhood... Engaging Women in All Stages of their Jewish Journey

Sisterhood brings together women of all ages and backgrounds to share in fun, exciting, and spiritually-inspired events. Through Sisterhood, you will connect with fellow Sisterhood members in friendship and within your Jewish community. By becoming a member of Sisterhood, our hope is that you continue to grow in leadership roles and in your understanding and enjoyment of Judaism. Beth Meyer Sisterhood's long-standing traditions have played a vital role in the life of the Beth Meyer community. Our mission is "to promote the religious and cultural aspects of Jewish living for our synagogue's women and youth."

Sisterhood is continually looking for ways to engage women in all stages of their lives. When you join Sisterhood , you are joining a community of women who support each other, celebrate each other, grow with each other, and reach out to enrich the lives of others.  


Membership

Sisterhood Welcomes You! 

Sisterhood is a vibrant part of our synagogue community. Over the past few years, you may have enjoyed one of our many programs such as The Seven Weeks of Sisterhood series, The Jews of India with Rahel Musleah and The Jews of Argentina with Natalie Oren, Trivia Night and JukeBox Bingo, Challah Baking, Havdallah in the Sukkah, Warm Up America, and, of course, Sisterhood Shabbat. Did you know that Sisterhood financially supports the religious school and the preschool, as well as our Beth Meyer youth groups USY and Kadima? Sisterhood also sends care packages to our college students and buys gifts for our B-Mitzvot! We have given Rosh Hashanah packages to the elderly thru the Jewish Federation, donated blankets to local shelters and pediatric hospitals, and also donated to community organizations such as the Jewish Federation, the Food Pantry, Wake Up and Read, and the Green Chair Project. We have fun, learn together, work in our shul, school(s) and community and welcome YOU!

Interested in a Sisterhood Board position or committee? There is room for you!

  1. You’ll get to meet new people, build new friendships, and work together on fun programs, community service activities and social events.
  2. You’ll learn new skills and grow in your own Jewish knowledge in a collegial and supportive environment.
  3. You’ll touch the lives of your Beth Meyer and greater Jewish community (and do your part in tikkun olam – repairing the world).
  4. Please reach out to Lynn Samberg and/or Robin Talley at sisterhood@bethmeyer.org with any questions or to express your interest in serving. We look forward to hearing from you!
