The Sisterhood of Temple Israel in Long Beach, an affiliate of Women of Reform Judaism (WRJ), maintains a vibrant fabric of support for our Jewish Community by providing opportunities which encourage social connections, education, and spirituality. We aspire to achieve these goals through a variety of programs, charitable contributions, and service to our temple, our youth, and our congregational family.
Membership in Sisterhood is open to all women who want to make new friends, have fun, and who embrace our goals to strengthen our community through annual membership dues. Our members are recognized through invitations to special events including a complimentary membership brunch.
I work, have small children at home, and can't make an event during the day, so why should I join?
Many Sisterhood events are held in the evening.There are many opportunities to help day and night. Even if you can't come or volunteer, your dues help us support Temple Israel.
Where do my dues go?
Your dues help pay for Sisterhood activities,social events, and social action projects. In addition to dues, our Sisterhood raises money for the congregation with fundraising through our annual fundraiser and Temple Israel Gift Shop sales. They also suppport our national and district operations, and the YES Fund (Youth Education Special Projects.
