Temple Sinai Sisterhood is a multi-generational organization that empowers women to create caring communities, nurtures our congregation, cultivates personal and spiritual growth and promotes Jewish values.

Many thanks to those of you who have supported Temple Sinai Sisterhood in the past. We hope that you will continue to do so this year. We are striving to include all the women of our Temple congregation. By paying our membership dues, you belong to a caring network of dedicated women who support our projects, programs and Temple Sinai.

This past year we survived the pandemic by being together over zoom. Below are some of the programs that helped us get through: Book Club and Movie discussions, Cooking demonstrations, Monthly Sisterhood meetings, and Family Game Night

We are looking forward to both in person and zoom events for the coming year. Here are some things to mark your calendars and look forward to:

*Sarah Hurwitz, the author and Obamas’ speech writer, will be our speaker on Zoom for our paid up members dinner. Sisterhood members will gather in person at the temple for a fun evening to hear her presentation.

*How to support your child socially, emotionally, and academically in a post pandemic world? This November Sisterhood will host a roundtable discussion with experts to help parents address this pressing question. 

*Get ready to escape from the Virtual Escape Room in December

*Beat the winter blues when we come together in January for our 2nd Annual Family Trivia and Game night!

*Let’s go back to the fifties this December for a Marvelous Mrs. Maisel Theme Night!

*In March for Purim we will host a Hamantaschen Bake-A-Thon! Bring your best recipe!

*Sisterhood led Shabbat Service in May.

Since Temple Sinai’s early years, our Sisterhood has been an important source of support to our congregation and community. We continue to support:

*Hosting the Yom Kippur Break-the-Fast

*Operating the Temple Sinai Gift Shop

*Proceeds from the sale of our Bimah Baskets are donated to the local Food Bank, Hospice, and Temple

*Sally Kelman Social Action Fund 

*Judy and Sheldon Katz Camp Fund

*Fairfield County Food Bank, Schoke JFS Kosher Food Bank, and new Kosher Food Truck

All women who belong to Temple Sinai Sisterhood also belong to the organization Women of Reform Judaism (WRJ). As such, you become a part of a worldwide network of over 70,000 women in 550 Sisterhoods- a network committed to the future of our congregation, our Reform Jewish Movement, Israel, and our role as Reform Jewish women.

 

Todah Rabah!
