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.
For more information, contact Nancy or Jacqueline at sisterhood@templeisrael.org or 786.208.9506 (Nancy).

Sisterhood’s First Mondays Great Books Club – August 6

We're reading and discussing The Plot Against America by Philip Roth, Monday, August 6 at 12:00 p.m. in the Miriam Olson Boardroom.

When the renowned aviation hero and rabid isolationist Charles A. Lindbergh defeated Franklin Roosevelt by a landslide in the 1940 presidential election, fear invaded every Jewish household in America. A thought provoking “counter-history” of the United States relating what could have happened if a popular and charismatic public figure such as Charles Lindberg had won the Republican nomination and presidency in 1940. Never more relevant than now, this national bestseller will challenge all who believe that “it can't happen here.” “A terrific political novel...Sinister, vivid, dreamlike...creepily plausible...You turn the pages, astonished and frightened.” — The New York Times Book Review

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.
