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 the Beth El Office. We will do our best to get you there.

A Message from the President

Dear Women of Beth El,

I am honored and excited to be serving as the President of Beth El Sisterhood for the next 2 years. I, along with the Sisterhood Board, are busy planning our 2015-16 calendar of events. It is our mission to educate, empower, inspire and excite the women of Beth El through our programming and outreach. We invite you to join us this coming year at one or several of the activities we are planning. Please look for the Sisterhood mailing later in the summer which will outline our exciting events and programming. It is our goal to engage all Beth El women, no matter your age or stage of life. We welcome your input and comments on how we can best serve Beth El women and help each to feel the power of “Sisterhood”.

Please join me in congratulating the 2015-17 Sisterhood Board, and thanking Faye Shapiro who served as our Sisterhood president for the past 3 years and retiring board members, Cathy Backal, Nancy Lubars, Michele Miron, Robin Schwartz, Lori Kolmins and Amy Breslow for their dedication to our Sisterhood. I look forward to seeing you at an upcoming Sisterhood event! Please feel free to contact me at rbkess@comcast.net  to share your thoughts and ideas on how to we can make our Sisterhood a great experience for every Beth El woman.

Renee Bodoff Kessler
President, Beth El Sisterhood
