Sisterhood and You

The Women of JCC of LBI – Who are we? 

The Sisterhood of the JCC of LBI offers the women of our congregation unique opportunities:

  • To make close, lifelong friends
  • To help provide for the needs of our Congregation
  • To learn about interesting topics
  • To lead a more profoundly Jewish life
  • To give back to our community

Sisterhood members gather at our annual planning meeting – Get involved and have fun.

Our programs and activities add an important dimension of fun and learning for our members. Open to women of all ages and interests, we provide an outlet for the creative energy, talent and leadership of each of our members.

Commitment – it gives our organization meaning

Whether preparing Oneg Shabbats and Kiddishes for services and special occasions, organizing a special religious service or community seder, providing dinner to an ill member or bereaved family or planning a fund raiser, our Sisterhood is committed to supporting the JCC of LBI and its congregants.

Over the years, Sisterhood has been there to help provide items needed by the synagogue.  We have purchased necessary equipment for the kitchen and Center office and through our fund raising efforts have donated $40,000 towards the Capital Campaign.

But our commitment doesn’t stop there – we are also deeply committed to our community.  Sisterhood has donated afghans to local nursing homes, provided meals for Family Promise and donated holiday baskets for those in our community in need.

Connection – it is what we are all about

It is the friends you make preparing an oneg at the JCC kitchen, or the fun you have playing mah jongg each week, or the special feeling you take away from a Sisterhood Shabbat Service.  Sisterhood helps you connect with other women, to women’s roles in Judaism, to social and cultural issues, and to the JCC of LBI’s caring community of women.
