From the Sisterhood President - Linda Krawcheck

Sisterhood celebrated Sisterhood Shabbat on February 24th, and how wonderful it was! All the women who participated were so wonderful, and I am always amazed at hoe many of our ladies can read Torah, and so confidently. Bravo to Shirley Mills on reading such a long Haftarah, and doing it perfectly. This event is my favorite of the whole year; it makes me feel so proud and empowered watching all of you. Mazel Tov on a wonderful event. There are three people in particular who have dedicated themselves to the success of the Sisterhood Shabbat: Elisheva Holub, Patti Bagg, and Irene Gilbert. I cannot thank them enough for always making this event so outstanding.

On March 6th, the annual Women Who Make a Difference took place at Emanu-El. This year, Sisterhood is honoring Karen Pinosky. Congratulations to Karen on a much deserved honor. Karen has been Sisterhood's Treasurer for all four years that I have been president, and she gives effortlessly.

We still need to support our Community Civic Project, Save the Girls. There is a receptacle near the doors of the Social Hall for you to leave your donation of bras. It's a much appreciated project. You are helping someone less fortunate than yourself.

Ladies, don't forget Sisterhood's monthly book club. All members are welcome.

Have and enjoyable spring.

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.
