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.

Sisterhood’s First Mondays Great Books Club – November 5
We're reading and discussing Killer of the Flower Moon by David Grann, Monday, November 5, at 12:00 p.m. in Kaplan Hall.
In the 1920s, the richest people per capita in the world were members of the Osage Indian Nation in Oklahoma. After oil was discovered beneath their land, the Osage rode in chauffeured automobiles, built mansions, and sent their children to study in Europe. Then, one by one, they began to be killed off. One Osage woman, Mollie Burkhart, watched as her family was murdered. Her older sister was shot. Her mother was then slowly poisoned. And it was just the beginning, as more Osage began to die under mysterious circumstances. A true-life murder mystery about one of the most monstrous crimes in American history.
