Congregation Beth Shalom Sisterhood is a member of the Women’s League for Conservative Judaism (WLCJ).  Its mission is to strengthen and unite synagogue women’s groups and their members, support them in mutual efforts to understand and perpetuate Conservative/Masorti Judaism in the home, synagogue and community and to reinforce their bonds with Israel and with Jews worldwide.


Mazel Tov to our Beth Shalom sisterhood member, Regina Newman, for being elected as  Vice President on the International Board of the Women's League for Conservative Judaism.


Locally, our Sisterhood unites the women of our synagogue with great programming and involvement around the synagogue. Our programs focus on:

  • Education
  • Community service
  • Fundraising
  • Spiritual and personal growth
  • Service to the synagogue

We encourage all female adult members to join Sisterhood – no matter what your age, so that we not only have a voice in our synagogue affairs, but also in national concerns that affect Jewish women worldwide. We continue to sponsor successful programs that serve our members and the synagogue community, such as:

  • Health programs
  • Torah Fund events (fun programs that support the seminary)
  • Pre-holiday recipe samplings
  • Weekly Mah Jongg and our annual Mah Jongg Madness Tournament
  • Silent Auction and Dinner of Honor
  • Judaic handcraft events
  • Membership events (fashion shows, teas, game night)
  • Participation in the national WLCJ events

We provide a wide variety of events that appeal to different interests while promoting commitment and observance to Judaism, fellowship with other Jewish women and a sense of family in the synagogue.  Many of our events are geared toward Sisterhood members, but guests are welcomed.  We usually schedule programs Sundays or weeknights, but continually try to identify special interest groups in order to offer programs to the diverse interests of our membership.

Our catering program is one of our biggest efforts through Sisterhood.  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 or Saturday 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.
