Beth Chaim Sisterhood
What is Sisterhood?
Sisterhood is the organization of the women of the Congregation who band together in friendship for programs to benefit the Temple and the community, for social activities, for study and, above all, for the growth of the individual so that each woman may find an opportunity to fulfill her potential as a person and as a Jewish woman. Sisterhood provides the arena for the individual to expand and grow in a Jewish atmosphere.
Within the structure of the Congregation, Sisterhood is the collective presence, voice and strength of women. It is the place where women can meet and work together for the benefit of the Congregation. Here, women can initiate and develop projects in which they are interested. As an organization, Sisterhood can initiate cooperative programs with other groups.
