A Message from the Sisterhood President

wlcj logo clearThe Sisterhood of Congregational Shomrei Torah is a dynamic organization and a vital part of our Synagogue. We are affiliated with the Women’s League for Conservative Judaism founded in 1918 by Mathilde Schechter. Women’s League for Conservative Judaism is an international organization, which provides services to all affiliated women’s groups in Conservative Synagogues in North America and is part of the worldwide Conservative/Masorti Movement. We are one of the 700 Conservative Synagogue Sisterhoods. There are 25 Branches with groups in Israel, Great Britain and South America, and there are 150,000 members.

The mission of Shomrei Torah Sisterhood is to strengthen and unite the women of the synagogue and support them in efforts to understand and perpetuate Conservative Judaism in the home, synagogue, and community; and to reinforce their bonds with Israel and with Jews worldwide.

Our Sisterhood provides an opportunity for women to meet and socialize in a welcoming environment. Shomrei Torah Sisterhood is a very active group with more than 40 members who participate in a variety of activities including preparing for weekly shabbat onegs, preparing congregational dinners, making latkas, baking hamantashen, making casseroles for the local homeless shelter, organizing social gatherings, maintaining the gift shop and more. We also provide dedicated support for each other, our families and the congregation at large.

We are committed to programs and activities that encourage participation and educate and instill a pride in Judaism and our community. I invite you to join us and enjoy the fellowship and loyalty of our chavarim (friends). If you are not a member we invite you to join.
