Sisterhood

Emanu-El Sisterhood provides a full program of involvement for the modern Jewish woman. The Sisterhood operates our Judaica Shop and provides major financial support for the Synagogue and its Religious School. Our Sisterhood participates in community service activities.

From the Sisterhood President - Linda Krawcheck

 Welcome to Fall, or should we say hurricane season. We are so fortunate to have been spared the horrific damage so many other cities had. Don’t forget to make your donation to the many available relief funds.
 Due to the storm conditions, our Paid-Up Membership Brunch in conjunction with Men’s Club was rescheduled for Sunday, October 15th, at 10:00AM. You do need to be paid up to attend; we will be taking RSVP’s. I hope to see everyone there. And, yes, Mayor Tecklenberg will be our speaker.
 A reminder of Sisterhood’s Social Action Project: please bring in a new or slightly-used bra or feminine hygiene products for “Save The Girls”. I want to see this project take off, and deliver bags of products to the homeless shelters. Please look for a large receptacle with a lid on it and “Save the Girls” written on it. It’s so needed!
 I want to wish everyone a Healthy New Year, and I hope you had an easy fast. They were wonderful holiday services, highlighted by Jasmine Hubara’s beautiful reading and voice (the young lady is simply amazing), and of course the beautiful music of Yuriy Bekker on Kol Nidre — so fabulous. We who attended are so lucky.
 I personally have to give kudos on the Apple & Honey bags. Brenda Lederman and Susan Heidenberg did such a great job; we all got together and baked the cookies, which were a delicious added treat, and the ladies found the apple chips to go along with the bags. It really made them special! I would be remiss if I didn’t thank Victoria Yaitsky also for all her help; she made the beautiful cards enclosed in the bags. Thanks to everyone who helped to deliver all the bags also.
 Ladies, there are two special people that have spent an entire month putting together the High Holiday Book, memorials and honoring of family and friends. It is such a big project to do, with so much double-checking to make sure everything is right. These two sweet souls are our congregant Adel Lazarus and Leah Bowzard from our office. I hope if you happen to see them you will thank them, I know I will!
 Be sure to attend or at least visit the Sukkah, there will be many events!

L'Shanah Tovah,
Linda Krawcheck Sisterhood President

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.
