Congregation Beth Israel’s Sisterhood is an active, vibrant, group of women of diverse interests, wlcj_logo_bannerages, and Jewish backgrounds. We share a desire to make a positive contribution to synagogue life and to be a part of a warm, supportive community.

Sisterhood Programs and Activities are designed to enrich the ritual and cultural life of the congregation.
