Sisterhood

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.

Your Sisterhood membership will nurture:

  • Year-Round Programming: Latte and Learn, Naomi’s Book Club, Rosh Chodesh Discussion Group, Mah Jongg, cultural outings to plays, museums, and more
  • Congregational Enrichment: Rosh Hashanah apples and honey, Worship in Pink Shabbat for breast cancer awareness, Sisterhood Shabbat, and synagogue beautification
  • AA Youth: Religious school support, gifts for consecration, B’nai Mitzvah, 7th grade graduation, and confirmation; scholarships for Jewish camps, programs, and Israel study; and holiday packages for college students
  • Community Outreach: Rebecca’s Tent – Shearith Israel, Zaban Paradies Center, William Breman Jewish Home, JF&CS (Jewish Family and Career Services), and active role in the AAACTS (Awareness and Action to Abolish Child Trafficking for Sex) Commitee

Every woman counts for Sisterhood to grow and thrive. Basic membership dues are $45, but we encourage you to join at a Chai-er level. Your generous dues and donations are vital for Sisterhood to continue to offer programs and projects that strengthen and sustain our Jewish values.
