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 , organized community service and social action initiatives.  The most important aspect of Sisterhood is the bond of friendship and support created between members where one call leads to whatever help, guidance or care one needs. Sisterhood is an incredible group of ladies that will wrap their arms around you and be there for you.

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.  Our featured speaker for the 2022-2023 Kickoff meeting will inform us how to recognize and thwart scams.
  • 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.
  • Program Events are generally held monthly.  Sisterhood has 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.
  • Community Service is a very important aspect of our Sisterhood. During the year we have fundraisers to support local community services, such as an “Empty Bowl” event to collect funds for Grassroots Crisis Intervention Center. We also cook once a month for the Crisis Center, and collect non-perishable items and clothing for the Grassroots Day Resource Center.
  • 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).
