The Women of Reform Judaism, Sisterhood of Temple Beth-El (Sisterhood) offers the opportunity for women to find spiritual, educational, and friendship bonds within the congregation as well as through other local, regional, and national Sisterhood organizations.


Annual special events include the Donor Event, the paid-up membership event, "Learn, Lunch and Play," a lunch for the visually impaired called the In-Sight luncheon (Temple Beth-El is the only synagogue in RI that sponsors the In-Sight luncheon), the March annual meeting program and the March Jewish Film Festival, the Passover raffle, and the Sisterhood Shabbat service. During the High Holy Days, Sisterhood sponsors a Rosh Hashanah family reception and a Yom Kippur break-the-fast that is cosponsored by Brotherhood. Sisterhood members also participate in Rosh Hodesh and reading circle gatherings.

  • Feeling of community
  • Strengthening one’s faith and learning its precepts
  • Establishing and maintaining a meaningful Jewish lifestyle


If you are not already a member of sisterhood – we invite you to join!


Current Sisterhood News: Sisterhood is pleased to announce our new logo!. At our March annual meeting, we revealed our new logo, along with plans for updating our Sisterhood mission statement. Also at that meeting, we voted to approve our slate of officers for next year. Watch for other communications from Sisterhood about the new faces on our board.

Our new Sisterhood logo was carefully crafted with guidance from marketing expert Judith Remondi, president and founder of RMS Direct, and designer-artist Denise Sternburg, pro bono. Our Logo Committee of Barbara Brown, Elaine Dickstein, Tanya Glanz, Cheryl Greenfield, and Sharon Linder met several times during the fall to review and refine our logo design. We worked to exemplify Sisterhood’s grounding in and extension of Temple Beth-El, our connection to Women of Reform Judaism (the blue leaf ), as well as our renewed and energized vision for our 21st-century women’s Jewish organization.
