Who We Are
With more than 200 members, the Shearith Israel Sisterhood is an active, rewarding group for women of all ages.
Sisterhood projects are fundamental to the ongoing success of the synagogue, and include supporting the religious school, assisting with children’s programming, delivering shiva meals to members in mourning, and sending notes to members during life cycle events.
In addition to its service to Shearith Israel, the Sisterhood has interesting and entertaining educational, social, and community service programs throughout the year for its members and their guests.
In the past Sisterhood has engaged with nationally-known authors, watched an award-winning film (and had a Q&A with the star), and the annual Sisterhood white-elephant Chanukah party.
