Sisterhood

WELCOME TO SISTERHOOD 

There are so many reasons to be a part of our wonderful Sisterhood.  Whether you are looking for fun social activities, educational and cultural experiences, a place to share fundraising ideas, or searching for personal Jewish growth, Sisterhood is for you! 

At Midway Jewish Center, Sisterhood endeavors to use the proceeds of all our events and fundraisers in three ways:   

To benefit and enhance our beautiful synagogue. 

To support other Jewish Women’s Organizations whose mission statements are in sync with our own. 

To support and further our dedication to Israel. 

 

Dear Midway Sisterhood Family,

 

I am so excited to be starting as Sisterhood President as 5778 begins.  Please introduce yourself to me at synagogue, or send me an email or text ([email protected] or 516-468-1692) with questions or suggestions.   I hope you can join us at our next program- a wellness series taught by Midway Members!  Save the date for our paid up membership dinner on Thursday, November 16.

I was most fortunate to attend a Women’s League for Conservative Judaism Convention in Arlington Virginia this summer.   I was proud to represent our synagogue from the Brooklyn Queens Long Island Region, as we were recognized as a Jewel in the Crown for our outstanding programming. Ask me about it when you see me.  I had an amazing time and learned so much.
