Our focus continues to be on serving the Temple and the community. Membership in Sisterhood means making a commitment to living Jewish. By being a member, you become an active link in the history of our people. You serve as a role model for Jewish values. Each member blossoms in their own individual way as they experience the camaraderie of Sisterhood and share in service to the Jewish community



Greetings, Sisterhood members and any of you who are thinking of joining.

As the new President, I look forward to talking with you, hearing your ideas and having you join in the activities of the Sisterhood.  Many thanks to Cathy Zitnick, who has done a wonderful job leading us the past two years.

My husband and I have been members of the Temple for the past 3-1/2 years. Thanks to Naomi Aronoff, whom I met shortly after we moved here from Boston, MA, who introduced us to Temple Beth Emet.  What a welcoming place the Temple is!  We have enjoyed the Rabbi’s class. I have had the privilege of starting a Jewish book group and have learned from the books we’ve read and the insights of the members.

To me, Sisterhood is an integral part of the Temple, supporting the Temple’s activities and undertaking projects that will benefit the Temple. The sense of community and friendship that Sisterhood provides is one of it’s great  gifts.

The installation of the Temple Board and the Sisterhood Board take place on Friday night, July 14th.  Our first Sisterhood meeting will be Sunday, August 6 at 10:00 AM.  Meetings will continue to be the first Sunday of the month.  I hope that you can join us then.
