Sisterhood Fundraiser_IMG_1607

Our Sisterhood Fundraiser supports Bet Aviv and our local community 

Bet Aviv Sisterhood provides its members diverse opportunities to connect with other women, to develop spiritual, intellectual and personal growth and to touch the lives of others through support of Bet Aviv Congregation, organized community service and social action initiatives. Bet Aviv Sisterhood is a member of Women of Reform Judaism, the women's agency of the Union of Reform Judaism.


Some of our on-going and ever popular educational and social events include:

  • The September Kick-off Meeting is when members are introduced to the board and a special-interest speaker or activity is planned. At our 2017-19 kick-off Irene Hantman discussed Genealogy and how to get started developing your own family history".   
  • The New Member Coffee, usually in October, is an opportunity for new Sisterhood members and congregants to meet in an informal setting to make new acquaintances and learn about opportunities to get involved.
  • Sisterhood Book Club meets the second Wednesday of every other month, with both daytime and evening meetings offered. Annually, members vote on book selection, and hostesses and leaders are rotated.
  • Programs events are generally held once each month.  Sisterhood has held Mah Jongg tournaments, Sisterhood dinners to celebrate Hanukkah, Blanket Bees, and much more.
  • Sisterhood Shabbat, observed in the spring of each year features a special Shabbat program honoring the sisterhood women of Bet Aviv who have worked so diligently throughout the year.
  • Our Fundraising events raise money for Bet Aviv, our local community and beyond. In addition to our support of Grassroots and Bet Aviv, Sisterhood has raised funds for JEN (the Jewish Emergency Network) and the Interfaith Coalition for Compassion. Sisterhood funds also support WRJ (Women of Reform Judaism).
