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.
