Who We Are & What We Do
Co-Presidents: Nancy Dreyfuss and Jean Logan
Created in 1923, Temple Israel’s Sisterhood is the congregation’s longest continuously-running organization. As we did from the beginning, we unite in friendship to organize programs that benefit our Temple and the larger Jewish and South Florida communities. Sisterhood offers social activities and learning opportunities for the growth and fulfillment of every member to realize her potential as a Jewish woman.
In the larger sense, we are one of 600 Sisterhoods in the Women of Reform Judaism (WRJ), an affiliate of the Union for Reform Judaism. A portion of our Sisterhood dues goes to the WRJ; when combined with dues from other Sisterhoods, these funds help support worldwide Jewish projects.
Join us. Attend our events. Make new friends. Make a difference. We are looking forward to seeing you and welcome your involvement at all the events planned for this Sisterhood year.

Sisterhood’s First Mondays Great Books Club – March
The Underground Railroad
In recounting Cora’s story, the author communicates the horrors of slavery and its toxic legacy rumbling on down the years. At the same time, he memorializes the yearning for freedom that spurs one generation after another to persevere in the search for justice. - Michiko Kakutani, Books of the Times
Sisterhood’s First Mondays Great Books Club – April
A wondrous book that celebrates the power of family bonds and the slipperiness of memory. A thoroughly enchanting story about the circuitous path that a life follows, about the accidents that redirect it, and about the secrets that can be felt but never seen, like the dark matter at the center of every family’s cosmos. - Ron Charles, The Washington Post
