Beth Meyer Sisterhood — Engaging Women at all Stages of their Jewish Journeys

Beth Meyer Sisterhood brings together Jewish women of all backgrounds to build community and connect in friendship. A member organization, Sisterhood empowers women to lead and steer the evolution of tradition at Beth Meyer Synagogue. Sisterhood members support each other in times of joy, challenge, and transition — their bonds are numerous and strong.  

Sisterhood directs core operating activities at Beth Meyer Synagogue. Their flagship programs — Sisterhood Shabbat, Sisterhood Membership Brunch, Trivia Night — attract hundreds and grow members’ understanding and appreciation of Judaism and Jewish womanhood. Other aspects of Sisterhood’s work are oriented toward community-building and tzedakah

  • Sisterhood organizes an annual mishloah manot (Purim gift share) fundraiser during the spring to raise funds for, among other recipients, Beth Meyer Preschool and the Naomi & Ken Kramer Religious School. 

  • Three times a year, Sisterhood sends holiday-themed care packages to undergraduate college students to bring a sweet touch to their celebrations (email sisterhood@bethmeyer.org to add your college student to our list so we can send them goodies, too!). 

  • Sisterhood runs the Judaica Shop at the entrance of Beth Meyer Synagogue — it’s chock-full of gifts for lifecycle events, Jewish crafts, and ritual items such as tallitot and mezzuzot. We give mezzuzot to teens on the occasion of them becoming b-mitzvah

  • Sisterhood also runs an ongoing card fundraiser to benefit institutions of higher Jewish learning. Email Gail Sherman to send a beautifully illustrated card to your friend or loved one — we give the proceeds to the Torah Fund campaign, a program of Women’s League for Conservative Judaism. 

  • In 2024, Sisterhood launched a monthly, in-person book club for community members enthralled by contemporary Jewish storytelling. Readers meet on the third Monday of the month in our Library to schmooze and swap reflections.

  • Through the Warm Up America! program and other charitable initiatives, Sisterhood has donated time, goods, services, and financial resources to Triangle-area shelters, hospitals, pantries, and other nonprofit organizations.
