Tzedakah Sisterhood is proud of its demographically balanced group of women who enhance the religious, spiritual and cultural life of Beth El by working hard to create something for everyone. Fundraising projects contribute to the synagogue's annual budget, and most often contain a Jewish element. Sisterhood maintains a healthy Mitzvah Fund that is used only for that purpose and encourages any congregant to tell us of a need we may not be aware of. Sisterhood members are good listeners and encourage all ideas!

Sisterhood membership dues are complimentary in the first year you join Beth El, including a 20% discount in the gift shop on your first time purchase.

If you would like to join the Sisterhood for the 2018/2019 year, please click here and fill out your registration. You will then be prompted to pay online via Paypal or you can mail your check into the synagogue office.
