JOIN SISTERHOOD TODAY!

Join the Sisterhood of Beth Haverim Shir Shalom, and you will have the opportunity to become an essential element in this very vital component of our synagogue.

Sisterhood does so much to help make our synagogue community the vibrant, caring place we have all come to love. We work hard to promote an environment of warmth and caring, both throughout the congregation in general and Sisterhood in particular. Not only that, we have fun knowing that what we do really makes a difference. At BHSS, Sisterhood women go out and make things happen, and it’s always a great day when we welcome new members.

Fundraising is a large component of what we do, and owing to our efforts, we annually provide siddurim to our 4th-grade Hebrew school students, Kiddush cups to students becoming b’nai mitzvah, camp scholarships, and gifts to confirmation classes. On a local and global scale, we provide gift cards to Tomorrows Children’s Fund, provide paid-for lunches at the Suffern soup kitchen, and make multiple donations to disaster relief. On a congregational scale, we host an annual Miriam Seder, Pool Party, and Chanukah Brunch, and we participate in the annual Sisterhood Shabbat Service. We also present programs and speakers on timely events, sponsor education for personal growth, and have even gone on a “Wild Women” hike!

In addition, Sisterhood purchased the grand piano that graces our sanctuary; we recently donated a beautiful handmade tzedakah box that hangs in the lobby of our shul; we sponsored a musical event and tea; and we provided auction baskets for the 40/10 gala.
