What Our Members Are Saying

“My mom and I had a blast at the pottery event! It was a great “Girls Night Out” for us both! I loved being able to chat with members my age and have some bonding time with my mom. We used our salt water bowls for Pesach and loved telling everyone at our Seder how we made them together.”
Amy Fineman Cohen 

“I had a front seat when it came to watching Sisterhood support education. All of the years that we spent together partnering to provide for the children of Etz Chaim really impacted our program in so many positive ways...Sisterhood has always been there and still is!”
 Linda Weinroth 

“I like Shalom in the Home because it provides an opportunity to view the teachings of the Torah from the female perspective. And, it gives the women of our congregation an opportunity to gather not only to socialize, but to challenge each other intellectually.”
Allison Saffran 

“When we celebrated Noah’s birthday with a special Shabbat, we used the new Sisterhood topiary centerpieces. They were lovely, and it was a great way to decorate the tables and do a mitzvah at the same time.”
Berna Levine 

“I enjoyed my first experience with Sisterhood.  There seemed to be a genuine interest in welcoming and getting to know newcomers. The kick-off event had a buzz of excitement and was interesting and fun. I look forward to the next event.” 
Glynnis Okrent
