Temple Beth Israel Sisterhood

TBI Sisterhood

Temple Beth Israel Sisterhood is a chapter of Women of Reform Judaism (WRJ). We are Jewish women of different backgrounds and ages who gather to promote Jewish values and traditions while enjoying warmth and friendship in the process. Sisterhood has been a part of TBI since 1949. We are proud of our contributions to the community and look forward to the energy and dynamism our new members bring. 

Our TBI Sisterhood is governed by a leadership council. Below are the names of leadership council members. Feel free to reach out to any member of leadership council if you are interested in participating.
