Sisterhood

Our mission is to strengthen traditional Judaism by furthering the spiritual, material and social interests of Sisterhood and the Temple, advancing Jewish education in the congregational affiliated groups, emphasizing Jewish religious practices at home, and aiding charitable groups to promote a spirit of civic cooperation.

We provide and do so much throughout the synagogue community, and Sisterhood is there for you.  There are many programs, activities and resources we provide to you as a Sisterhood member, a member of the Temple Israel community and beyond.  We are excited for you to attend, participate in, collaborate on existing programs, and contribute your ideas.

Sisterhood’s calendar features many events throughout the year.

  • Paid Up Supper is a great evening of food, camaraderie and entertainment open to all Sisterhood members.
  • Donor Dinner is a fundraising event open to everyone and includes shopping, raffles, a catered meal and entertainment.
  • Sisterhood Shabbat is an annual event when we, the women of Sisterhood, conduct the Shabbat morning service.

 

There are additional opportunities for learning, playing, and connecting that we organize.  As a Sisterhood member, all programs are there for you to attend and/or be a part of creating.

 The Sisterhood provides for and supports the synagogue community in all aspects of life at Temple Israel.

  • Kiddushim on Shabbat and Holidays
  • Order your Kosher for Passover wine
  • Scholarships to our Sisterhood members’ children for USY on Wheels, trips to Israel, and kinnusim.
  • financial support towards Temple operating expenses
  • gifts to new babies and B’nai Mitzvah.
  • Contributions to the Early Learning Center and Religious School, and collaboration on programming with both.
  • supports the publication of the TI newsletter, Hakol, and Shabbat babysitting

 

Our Leagram Program enables community members to support one another by acknowledging simchot, and offering comfort during times of illness and loss.

 

Sisterhood is involved in numerous social action and community based projects, including:

  • Open Door program, which serves meals to the needy in Natick.
  • Chanukkah presents to children in need
  • Clothing and toiletries for local shelters
  • Supporting various charities through donations
  • Jewish Theological Seminary through its Torah Fund projects.

We are always looking for other ways to be socially active, so please bring your ideas and let’s make them happen!
