banner sisterhood

Congregation Emeth’s Sisterhood has been meeting regularly since 2001, before the congregation had a permanent home.

Sisterhood offers an opportunity for the women of Congregation Emeth to socialize and participate in such activities as assisting with special Yom Tov Onegs (holiday receptions) and maintaining the Mazel Tov book of resources for families with an upcoming bar or bat mitzvah. Members of Sisterhood have an annual Chanukah party and special Women’s Seder each year. They help out with Emeth’s annual fundraising events–especially the annual mah jongg tournament–and create and deliver Yom Tov (holiday) baskets before Rosh Hashanah to congregants unable to attend services.

Divas Who Dine

Emeth’s Sisterhood organizes a weekly dining outing to a local restaurant, typically on the third Monday of the month. Look for announcements in our weekly email, HaMadrich, and click on the link to RSVP (through Signup Genius). All women — members of Sisterhood or not — are welcome as well as their guests, so come when you can! Questions? Contact Marilyn or Patty by inquiring within.



Through Sisterhood’s Rachamim Committee, the women of Emeth volunteer for a month at a time to reach out to shut-ins and provide support to other members in need. Most of these efforts are not evident to the congregation at large but are valued by those who receive them.

In addition, we have a signup list for special visits and other support. Please go to Lotsa Helping Hands to join other members of Emeth in signing up on specific dates to help congregants with driving, meals, visits, etc. (Follow the link below, searching on “Emeth Rachamim”. Contact Marsha at if you need help.)
