Our Mission:

Women's League Sisterhood of Congregation Beth Shalom links hands with generations of synagogue women by sponsoring and promoting social, educational, and cultural activities. These activities further the perpetuation of Conservative Judaism, Jewish education and family life, and support the well-being of the congregation and broader community.

CBS Sisterhood Catering 


We offer affordable and competitively priced kiddush lunches for bar and bat mitzvahs and other simchas. We also provide weekly kiddush lunches on non-simcha weekends. We always welcome sponsorships for our kiddush meals, so that we can offer a delectable meal to all who attend Shabbat services. Come volunteer your time in the kitchen to help our caterer Jan Adler prepare a tasty meal. We are there on Thursday mornings between 9:30 am and 1:30 pm. We schmooze, chat, cook, and have fun. All congregants are welcome to help out. Do a mitzvah for the shul. Our catering is one of our biggest efforts through Sisterhood.


Meantime, we are presently offering Curbside Kiddush Brunch/Lunches every other week.  Check Beth Shalom weekly email for upcoming dates where you can order delicious lunches to take home.
