A Message from the Sisterhood Presidents

The Sisterhood of Synagogue Emanu-El 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 Sisterhood of Synagogue Emanu-El is a member of the Southern Branch of Women’s League in the United States.

The Mission of Sisterhood Emanu-El is to support our congregation, its youth and religious school and to strengthen Conservative Judaism in the home and Synagogue. We support and unite with Women’s League in the understanding and perpetuation of Conservative/Masorti Judaism.

We are committed to programs and activities that encourage participation and educate and instill a pride in Judaism. I invite you to join us and enjoy the fellowship of our members.

If you are not a member we invite you to join.
