The TCS Sisterhood was formed in 2003 as a way for adult female members of the congregation to socialize with each other. Through the years, we have expanded to social, spiritual, and educational events. Our membership is diverse and open to all women who are members of the temple, you do not need to be of the Jewish faith to join.
Sisterhood is also incredibly involved in the life of the temple community through fundraising as well as its extended community. Past fundraising efforts have included: a new boiler for the temple, painting the temple interior, financial contribution for a new computer server, and making a donation to the Rabbi’s Discretionary Fund and other local organizations helping those affected by Covid 19. Together with Brotherhood, we provide Shiv’ah meals to those with a loss in their immediate family. Sisterhood supports organizations such as Support the Girls and the Attleboro Area Council for Children, as well as the ongoing collection of beans and tuna for the TCS Family Table. Sisterhood also celebrates TCS’s children annually with B’nai Mitzvah & Confirmation Gifts and a senior send-off scholarship, enhancing their future religious and spiritual lives.
In prior years, Sisterhood has held events such as:
Community Break Fast
Soup in the Sukkah
Sisterhood Shabbat Service
This year promises to be engaging, informative, and fun, just like years past even though it may look a little different by relying on more virtual and socially distanced programming. We hope that you consider joining Sisterhood for $36.00 a year. Or, become a Lifetime Member for $300.00.
The first year a woman belongs to the congregation, membership is FREE. Financial assistance for your Sisterhood dues and/or events is available, and all requests are confidential. Please email Teresa Kempner for more details.
