Ahavath Achim's Sisterhood is a dynamic organization of women of all ages with diverse experiences, talents, and interests within our synagogue, community, and the Jewish world. We invite you to join in the camaraderie!
Your Sisterhood membership will nurture:
- Year-Round Events: Sisterhood offers monthly connective meetings and annual themed gatherings. Increase your knowledge at Latte and Learn, Naomi's Book Club, Rosh Chodesh Discussion Group, Mah Jongg, yoga, cultural outings, and many more creative programs.
- AA Youth: Sisterhood provides crucial financial support for our children's religious school education, B'nai Mitzvah journeys, and milestone gifts. Scholarships are available for members to attend Jewish camps, Israel study, and other programs. Holiday packages are lovingly assembled and mailed to our AA families' college students.
- Congregational Enrichment: Sisterhood hosts many enriching events like Worship in Pink Shabbat for breast cancer awareness, special Sisterhood Shabbat, apples and honey at Rosh Hashanah, and AA beautification.
- Greater Community Support: Sisterhood provides dinners to a homeless women's shelter, Rebecca's Tent at Shearith Israel and homeless couples at Zaban Paradies Center. We also provide support for the William Breman Jewish Home, JF&CS (Jewish Family and Career Services), and AAACTS (Awareness and Action to Abolish Child Trafficking for Sex) Committee.
From generation to generation, help our 100 year old organization continue to thrive by contributing annually at the basic level of $45, but please consider going for a "Chai-er" level. Your generous dues and donations are vital for Sisterhood to continue offering programs and projects that strengthen and sustain our Jewish values and enrich our congregational life.
