About Sisterhood

What is Sisterhood?

Sisterhood is caring and sharing.  It is feeding the hungry and clothing the less fortunate locally and globally.  Sisterhood is providing College Goodies, Shiva Dinners and Shalach Manot.  It is Book Club, where ideas are shared about life.  Sisterhood is knitting for veterans and patients with serious illnesses. It is a major supporter of BT culturally, financially & spiritually.  Sisterhood is social, educational and recreational. Sisterhood is that feeling of never being alone.

We are the necessary element that makes us whole as Jewish women. We are moms, sisters, friends, professionals, businesswomen, grandmas, great-grandmas, and most importantly, YOU. Sisterhood needs YOU to be WE.

"Without you we are one woman short and we have too much to accomplish”
