Sisterhood

Overview

Sisterhood at B'nai Tzedek Synagogue in Potomac MarylandOur goal is to have 100% of the female members of B'nai Tzedek join Sisterhood. Our members enjoy meeting new people and connecting with our community. Many of us are working full-time and/or have other responsibilities, but we find our time with Sisterhood gives us renewed energy for all the things we do. Regardless of your involvement with programs or volunteer efforts, we hope you will join to support our various contributions to the synagogue and community.

Come to a program or event. We offer many social and educational activities to appeal to our broad membership. These include: book discussions, Canasta, visits to museums, movie nights, holiday events, and educational, social action, cooking and fitness programs. If you are interested in a program that is not offered, please let us know so we can try to make it happen.  Take a look at our articles in the monthly Tzedek Scroll or notices in the Egeret.  You may also contact our Program Vice Presidents, Sheri Farrell or Melissa Polott.

Sisterhood volunteers at B'nai Tzedek Synagogue in Potomac MarylandVolunteer. We welcome volunteers, without whom we could not offer the variety of programs or provide support to the synagogue and community. Volunteer opportunities allow you to make a small commitment of time while you help make a positive contribution to our synagogue community…and get to meet new people. No experience is necessary. We will train you to help with our Mitzvah Committee, Judaica Shop, Friday Morning Kiddush Preparations and Purim (Mishloach Manot Baskets).

Kiddush. We provide wonderful kiddushim each and every Saturday after services.  What better way to celebrate any simcha than to sponsor a kiddush. Contact ViVi Rosen.

If you have any questions or would like more information, please contact  Arlene Karpas & Rachel Berenzweig, Sisterhood Presidents.
