What you should know about Sisterhood…
There’s no wrong way to be a member of our Sisterhood. Whether you have lots of free time or a life of “non-negotiable commitments”, there is a place for you in Sisterhood. Some members are just born volunteers and some would rather participate only in activities that interest them; still others prefer to pay dues and nothing further. Your membership is welcome at any level. Men may also show support of our Sisterhood by becoming associate members.

Sisterhood is a place where women of all ages can come together; where there is mutual support. Sisterhood is where we can learn to grow as individuals, sharing talents and developing new skills. Together we are a caring community and fulfill the mitzvah of tikkun olam (repair of the world). Sisterhood offers a way for each woman to do her part to help ensure the future of Reform Judaism through our affiliation with WRJ. We are extending to you a personal hand of welcome. We’re asking you, “Won’t you join us!”
