What is Sisterhood?
Sisterhood is a community of women of the Congregation who join together in friendship for programs to benefit the Temple and the community, for social activities, for learning, and individual growth. It provides the opportunity for the individual to expand and grow in a Jewish atmosphere.
Why join Sisterhood?
Sisterhood is the place where women can meet and work together for the benefit of the temple and Congregation. Here, women can participate in monthly meetings to develop and initiate projects in which they have an interest. Sisterhood also gives women a sense of worldwide community through its affiliation with Women of Reform Judaism (WRJ).

Sisterhood's recent accomplishments
It is with great pride that we announce the establishment of the new TBD SISTERHOOD CAMP FUND. In March of 2015, we continued with our wonderful Purim Basket Fundraiser. With the help of all of our participants and contributors, we raised enough money to establish our new Fund. This summer, the Sisterhood will enable some of TBD’s children to attend Jewish camps that they might not have had the opportunity to otherwise. Thank you to all the wonderful families who participate in our basket fund raiser each year.
The heart and strength of Sisterhood lies in the connections we make with each other. We invite you to join us…..always looking for new friends and sisters! If you are interested in joining TBD Sisterhood feel free to contact Robi Bart, we would love to hear from you.
