Sisterhood's Annual Corned Beef Sandwich Sale

Beth Shalom Sisterhood

Sisterhood organizes the schedule for Onegs, hosted by member families after each Kabbalat Shabbat service. All sisterhood members come together to host the Oneg on the Eve of Rosh Hashanah, the Yom Kippur break fast and potluck dinners for Sukkot and at other times throughout the year. Sisterhood also oversees our synagogue library and Judaica shop. They cook for our congregational 2 nd night seder, and spend most of the year preparing for or recovering from our spring Corned Beef Sandwich Sale. This project is lots of fun, involves the entire congregation and produces significant revenue for the synagogue.

Our Sisterhood is so active it will make your head spin! We would tell you when their regular meetings are held, but these women are TOO BUSY for meetings! All you have to do is express an interest, and you will quickly be drafted for one of Sisterhood’s many projects.

Men's Club Preparing Sukkot Festival Dinner

Beth Shalom Brotherhood

Another group of “do”ers, our Men’s Club assists in building the sukkah, provides the meals for our Simchat Torah deli and our end of the year Religious School Picnic and assist with general building maintenance. In recent years we’ve held activities such as father-child bowling after Religious School and outdoor activities like hiking and softball.

Synagogue Committees

Members of Beth Shalom work hard to sustain our library, our annual book sale, our Religious and Hebrew schools, our community Youth Group and our in-house preschool, the Alfred G. Rayner Early Learning Center. We also maintain active committees to oversee Ritual, Membership, Fundraising and Building Maintenance.
