CONGREGATION B'NAI TORAH
Sisterhood

Congregation B'nai Torah Sisterhood is a committed and dynamic group of volunteers that provide an interactive environment for its members, supports the congregation, and enriches the Jewish education and ties with Israel of its members.  Sisterhood offers the unique opportunity of making lifelong friends, learn about interesting topics, lead a more profound Jewish life and give back to our community. We sponsor and promote social, educational, and cultural activities for our members as well as participate in programs that promote community responsibility. We offer the companionship of other women, have pride in our achievements, as well as strengthen our dedication and commitment to our synagogue and community.

​Sisterhood Supports Torah Fund

The Torah Fund campaign began in 1942 as a scholarship fund and in time, the campaign identified needs, and raised funds, for specific projects, including: Women’s League Educational Pavilion (Kripke Tower), Women’s League Seminary Synagogue, Mathilde Schechter Residence Hall Renovations, Goldsmith Hall, Residence Hall at the American Jewish University, JTS Quadrangle, JTS Library Bookshelves, and Schechter Institute of Jewish Studies Garden.

Every woman has the opportunity to participate in preserving, promoting, and perpetuating Conservative/Masorti Judaism through active giving to the Torah Fund Campaign of Women’s League in support of The Jewish Theological Seminary (New York, NY), Ziegler School of Rabbinic Studies (Los Angeles, CA) and the Schechter Institute of Jewish Studies (Jerusalem) well-being of these educational communities by supporting Torah Fund projects.
