Sisterhood is a vibrant and active group, serving many key roles in the daily activities of the synagogue. Funds raised by Sisterhood are used to help support and beautify our synagogue, sponsor all Yom Tov Kiddushes, non-sponsored Saturday kiddushes and Friday night Onegs. Sisterhood also provides the Mazelgram program – an easy way to send Rosh Hashanah greetings to your Kol Ami friends and family. Don’t forget to visit our well stocked Gift Shop for all your Judaica needs – Sheila Bush will be delighted to assist you.
Every year Sisterhood has an exciting year of programs and events planned. We love to partner with other branches of the synagogue like Brotherhood, Kol Yeladim Religious School and the Security committee to provide some of these programs. Please check out our upcoming events to see what interests you. Of course with these programs/events come with volunteer opportunities. Your help makes these wonderful activities happen. Looking forward to seeing you at some of our events this year.

October 21: Paid- Up Membership Event: Happy Hour and Game Night = Fun Night!
Sisterhood chose to do a simple and relaxed Paid-Up Membership event this year. The evening started with do it yourself cocktails or wine followed by a light dinner and dessert. Then came the game fun. Ladies played Mah Jongg (a given with Sisterhood), Mexican Train Dominos, and a card game. Also available were games like Clue, Boggle and Trivial Pursuit. Throughout the evening names were drawn for grab bag gifts. Everyone left with smiles on their faces having completely enjoyed themselves.
Many thanks to all the women who volunteered to help with this event from creating invitations, helping with mailing, preparing the food, setting the room and cleaning up to make this night a success. Thank you so much Roberta Baer, Diane Botwinik, Sheila Bush, Sharon Cross, Sue Dvorchik, Cindy Korenvaes, Susan Leibowitz, Gwen Neihoff, Sheri Peterson, Sylvia Richman, Carol Tarica, and Lisa Teblum. A very special thanks goes to Stanley Bush, who volunteered to be our “security volunteer”. Thank you also to Mitch Weiss for making sure the room was set up for us.
If you weren’t able to make it to this year’s event, we hope you will join us next year or even better, come to some of our upcoming programs/events. There will be several more fun events coming up this year like Havdalah and Hollywood in January and our annual Mah Jongg Tournament in March.
