List of Upcoming Sisterhood Events

We are a member of the Women’s League for Conservative Judaism [WLCJ], which helps support the Jewish Theological Seminary, and strengthens women’s groups.  Our membership fee of $45 is two-fold: (1) supports projects and programs, and (2) includes a specified fee required by the WLCJ.  For new Beth El members who choose to join Sisterhood, the first year membership is complimentary.  If there is a financial hardship, we do not consider this an obstacle to membership, and the Membership Chair or Co-Presidents should be notified; information is held in strictest confidence.

To accommodate the balance of work schedules and family obligations, our programs take place at different days and times.

Our Programs include:

We invite you to join our Sisterhood and look forward to meeting you.  Following the fall holidays, don’t forget our annual, fun, paid-up membership program.  Our upcoming events are listed online, as well as in weekly Friday Updates via email and in the Kol (our bi-monthly newsletter).


For a list of officers and position, as well as vacant positions, please see the Sisterhood Membership Board.  If you have any questions about Joining Sisterhood, please email Nancy MacLachlan, our VP of Membership.
