Who We Are & What We Do
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.

A Walk in the Woods by Bill Bryson
A Walk on the Wild Side: Rediscovering America on the Appalachian Trail by Bill Bryson. This is a travel memoir about Bryson’s attempt to walk the Appalachian Trail in the company of a friend. Bryson is a funny guy, and you cannot fail to be amused, enlightened and inspired by this true story. The AT offers an astonishing landscape of silent forests and sparkling lakes—and to a writer with the comic genius of Bill Bryson, it also provides endless opportunities to witness the majestic silliness of his fellow human beings.
