Sisterhood

Sukkah DecorWho We Are:  The Sisterhood of WJC is a community of women committed to the enrichment of Jewish life by providing spiritual, educational and social programs, and by offering financial support to vital synagogue activities. Membership is open to all women in our community.

What We Do:  Sisterhood reaches into all aspects of synagogue life from social events, such as our annual opening dinner to leading an annual Shabbat service to visits to local points of interest. Sisterhood also supports speakers and other events and programs at WJC that are open to the entire community. Most of our funds are raised through annual dues and fundraising projects.
