Home > Sisterhood

Sisterhood is an arm of Temple Am Echad. Along with our affiliation with the Women Of Reform Judaism, we work as a group of women who are dedicated to providing for our Temple.

  • We are able, through our fundraising efforts, to supply many “extras” to our Temple Family, including the Religious School, the Feed the Hungry Program and the Ritual Committee.
  • Our programming provides enrichment activities to our membership including Social Action events, day trips, book reviews, and informative dinner meetings and get togethers.
  • On the religion and education front, we host and participate in Rosh Chodesh evenings. We have an annual Sisterhood Shabbat that we prepare and present in conjunction with our clergy.
  • We are always welcoming new ideas and new members to add to our resources. We are an active, involved and dedicated group of women who are a part of everything that takes place at Temple Am Echad.

More information about Sisterhood events is available in the Temple Am Echad Bulletin (accessible via our Am Echad website) or by contacting the Temple Office (516) 593-4004, or Susan Stein, President at sstein210@yahoo.com.

Sisterhood is always on the move trying to help in any way we can for our Temple life. Here are a few pictures that show us in action. We went away for a weekend to Greenport. Along with renewing old friendships, we got to connect with others. The highlight of the weekend was the most beautiful Shabbat service. And, we actually have very meaningful workshops. We painted wine glasses and coffee mugs for a fun evening. We’ve had several dinner meetings with interesting speakers. Our highlight each year is our Spring Dinner with 130 women having a great meal, a fashion show with our own models, and raffles galore !!!

We also supply the religious school with appropriate gifts and food for the many holidays during the course of the year. We run coat drives for the women’s shelter. Our Trash to Treasures raises money for the Temple. The leftover items get donated to Big Brothers/Little Sisters. These are just some of our activities. Come join us for any or all of our events or projects. Keep up withal our happenings in the Bulletin or the weekly Blasts.
