The Mission of Beth El Sisterhood is to connect, enrich, and empower the women of Beth El. We are committed to educating and supporting our members through innovative programming, social events, and community service. We support each other, the Beth El Community, Israel, the Jewish Theological Seminary, and the values of the conservative movement. We are a link to the past and continue to shape the future of Beth El and Conservative Judaism.
Some of our exciting programs and events include: bingo, yoga, dine and study, Sisterhood Shabbat, the Event Extravaganza, and so much more.
Sisterhood wants to make sure that if you want to attend a meeting or event, you can. So if you need a ride or just want a buddy, please call Jodie Richmond at (609) 922-0756 or Jennifer Sholder at (609) 313-1808. We will do our best to get you there.
It is hard to believe that I am through my first year of presidency. The year has flown by and I am so grateful for all of the help and support I have been getting. March and April were busy months for Sisterhood at Beth El. On March 3rd we concluded our Shabbat seder workshop series with a challah baking/wine tasting class. Thank you to Tammy Arnow for teaching us all how to make delicious challah for Shabbat, and to Hazzan for the yummy wine tasting and pairings. On March 17th we held our 5th and incredibly successful Party Expo. This one was definitely one of our best attended and all the vendors left very happy. A huge Thank you to Leslie Breslau, Sharon Mindel, Renee Kessler and their entire committee for all of their hard work to put this together. April brought a fun night of Bingo and raffles, and a huge Thank-you goes to Sharon Sackstein for coordinating the evening and soliciting most of the raffle prizes herself. Then our Z’havah group got cooking again on April 17th, preparing 4 meals for everyone to take home. Thank you to Robyn Greenberg and Leah Wolf for organizing this great evening once again. Lastly I want to wish a mazel tov to Sharon Mindel who was chosen as this year’s Sisterhood honoree for Beth El’s Annual Meeting on April 21st.
The end of the (school) year brings our final event of this year which will be “Sisterhood Stars Under the Stars” on Thursday evening, June 6th. Join us for cocktails and light snacks as we recognize and honor all of the great women who helped to make this such a fantastic year for our Sisterhood. If you attended any meetings, participated in any fundraisers, or came to our Wednesday morning minyan, etc. then you should know that there were some hard working women who helped to put that program or event together, and this is a night to honor all of them. I hope you will join us in the courtyard for this enjoyable evening. More details to follow.
On another note, I want to let everyone know about our new plan for communications. It is now the policy of Beth El to include all of our Sisterhood information in the weekly Beth El Buzz that you should all be receiving via email. We will no longer be sending any separate emails or communication blasts from Sisterhood. Therefore, it is very important that you check the Sisterhood section of the Beth El Buzz every week so that you know what is going on. You can also find up to date information on the Sisterhood page of the Beth El website. I don’t want anyone to miss an event because they didn’t know about it. I will try hard to include it in the weekly Shabbat brochures as well as encourage Board members to post on their Facebook pages. Hopefully, you will see the information one way or another. Or, as always, you can contact me with any Sisterhood questions or problems. My cell phone is (609) 670-7742 and my email is email@example.com.
I’m looking forward to another great year with Beth El Sisterhood.
