We encourage you to attend this virtual meeting to discuss the best ways for Sisterhood to proceed in our mission and activities for the year. Do you have ideas for a Purim activity, a Chesed project, or an education program? Join us to reconnect, catch up, and share ideas, as we plan for 2022.

Remember, even though some of us have not been together in person since our ‘Welcome Back’ Open House meeting in the Sukka on September 23, Sisterhood continues to fund the Jewish Federation’s ‘Passport to Israel’ Program for our eligible members, as well as other Synagogue activities.
