Sisterhood


who we are:

With more than 200 members, the Shearith Israel Sisterhood is an active, rewarding group for women of all ages.

Sisterhood projects are fundamental to the ongoing success of the synagogue, and include supporting the religious school, assisting with children’s programming, delivering shiva meals to members in mourning, and sending notes to members during life cycle events.

In addition to its service to Shearith Israel, the Sisterhood has interesting and entertaining educational, social, and community service programs throughout the year for its members and their guests.

In the past Sisterhood has engaged with nationally-known authors, watched an award-winning film (and had a Q&A with the star), and the annual Sisterhood white-elephant Chanukah party.

For more information, please contact Sisterhood President Amy Trotz at  amy.trotz@gmail.com.

sisterhood simchas:

Sisterhood Simchas is a cooperative-style program in which Sisterhood members create festive Kiddush meals for Bar/Bat Mitzvah families. Members volunteer for other members' simchas by shopping, cooking, or supervising serving staff. Families accumulate volunteer hours prior to their own event. In return, Sisterhood caters their kiddush for the cost of food, supplies and a nominal donation. Join our growing Simcha community, meet people, have fun, get tips on how to plan your child’s Bar/Bat Mitzvah, and help others make their simcha special.
