Social Action

Tzedakah

Thank you for joining Sisterhood.  Your volunteer efforts and contributions support Temple Isaiah and worthy organizations at home and around the world. Your membership dues provide the seed money for this work. Your work throughout the year at the Rummage Sale, Holiday Marketplace, Mah Jongg Tournament, in the Judaica Shop, in addition to being fun, make substantial contributions to the Tzedakah that Sisterhood donates. Thank you for joining and giving of your time and talents so generously.

Funds that are raised by Sisterhood go to tzedakah, or to support charities. Here are some of the charities that we support. In addition to these, Sisterhood provides scholarships to Sisterhood members to attend Sisterhood events.
