Welcome to the Jericho Jewish Center Sisterhood! We are an active arm of the synagogue, made up of women of all ages who work together to provide educational, cultural, and social value for the congregation. Our members contribute to Jewish life that will ensure that traditions are carried from generation to generation. We accomplish many things throughout the year and our journey is to become involved in our community – to extend yourself and reach beyond yourself.
Our programs include an annual membership dinner, Sukkot luncheon for the congregation, Chanukah program, Chanukah Boutique, Mah Jongg and game nights, Passover program, Jewish adult coloring and conversation program, and many more. We have gift items available for all occasions at our Judaica Shop. During Purim, our Sisterhood prepares holiday baskets that are delivered to friends, family, and nursing homes in the area. We have beautiful Purim cards that are sent to those near and far. We support many programs, including those for the religious school.
The Jericho Jewish Center Sisterhood is also affiliated with the Women’s League for Conservative Judaism. It was founded in 1918 as an international organization and provides services to 600 affiliated women’s groups in synagogues across North America and links 100,000 women in 13 regions with groups in Israel, Great Britain, and South America. BQLI is the region of Women’s League that includes Brooklyn, Queens, and Long Island. We are part of this region whose mission is to strengthen the Sisterhoods with training and other services. Every member of our Sisterhood is also a member of BQLI. Each year, we are proud to select our Woman of Achievement honoree. Our Sisterhood members also have the opportunity to promote and perpetuate Judaism through active giving to the Torah Fund Campaign in support of the Jewish Theological Seminary.
