Who We Are & What We Do

Co-Presidents: Nancy Dreyfuss and Jacqueline Greenberg

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 – May 7

Sisterhood’s First Mondays Great Books Club meets May 7 , 2018 at 12:00 p.m. in the Olson Boardroom to discuss White Tiger by Aravind Adigo.

This novel is written in the form of a long letter to a Chinese politician about to visit India. The protagonist’s journey from humble beginning to a successful entrepreneur. Along the way, we discover details about his early, difficult life and his observations about Indian society. It is entertaining, enlightening and even a little scary. Introducing a major literary talent, The White Tiger offers a story of coruscating wit, blistering suspense, and questionable morality, told by the most volatile, captivating, and utterly inimitable narrator that this millennium has yet seen.

 

College Connection

One of Sisterhood's important projects each year is to keep in touch with our Temple youth who have gone away to college. For more years than we can count, Lois Klein and her family have put together wonderful surprise packages that are sent to college students, around the time of Chanukah and final exams, just to let them know that we care. If you have a college student whom you wish to be remembered, please send the student's contact information to sisterhoodtempleisrael@yahoo.com.
