Temple Israel of New Rochelle’s Sisterhood brings together all generations of women within our synagogue to serve our congregation. Sisterhood plans programs for its members and the community at large and coordinates efforts with other committees to invite speakers and sponsors events for Chavaya. Sisterhood events are fun and exciting with an emphasis on health and wellness including barre, yoga and spin classes, plus less intense events like Paint night, Bowling, Temple-Wide Book Reading and our popular Comedy Night fundraiser.
Sisterhood supports the Temple youth with subsidies for youth group events, donations to Israeli charities in the names of our B’nei Mitzvah celebrants, Chanukah gifts, and scholarships for our confirmands. Many of Sisterhood’s efforts are geared toward fundraising as a means of contributing to the general well-being of the synagogue.
