Sisterhood Welcomes You

Join Our E-list


The Sisterhood of Temple Isaiah is the collective presence, voice, and strength (within the congregation) of its women members. Its exciting yearly calendar is filled with events to appeal to spiritual, educational, social, family, and organizational interests. Sisterhood membership includes membership in the national Women of Reform Judaism (WRJ), 75,000 women from over 500 synagogues in North America and around the world.

Sisterhood invites every woman in the congregation to become a member, to participate in its activities, and to become a leader. Toward that goal, Sisterhood offers women new to the congregation a complimentary one-year membership.

The mission of Sisterhood is to bring together the women of Temple Isaiah to serve our Temple, support our community, and enrich our lives through personal growth and friendship. We strive to foster and further the highest ideals of Judaism. We accomplish this mission through social and educational programs, worship, fundraising, community service, and involvement with the Women of Reform Judaism. Our activities, enhanced by the richness of our diversity, further our commitment to Jewish ideals, education, spirituality, social action, and leadership development.
