Shaarey Zedek Sisterhood, affiliated with Women’s League for Conservative Judaism (WLCJ), has been an active part of the Shaarey Zedek family for nearly 85 years, and still continues to be an integral part of the Synagogue.
The Sisterhood offers women of all ages the opportunity to come together to socialize, work on special projects and learn through programs such as the annual Interfaith Luncheon held in the spring of each year, the Book Club, the very popular tallit weaving program, Sisterhood Shabbat and a variety of social programs ranging from fashion shows to learning how to care for yourself.
Through our Torah Fund campaign, we raise money for and awareness of the institutions that train our clergy and lay leaders – the Jewish Theological Seminary of America in New York, Ziegler School of Rabbinic Studies at the American Jewish University in Los Angeles, Schechter Institute in Jerusalem, and Seminario Rabbinico Latinoamericano in Buenos Aires. We are also pleased to announce a fifth affiliate, Zacharias Frankel College in Potsdam.
Locally, we are proud to support Willow Place and Jewish Child & Family Services.
Sisterhood has made a number of donations to the synagogue over the years, including all the furnishings in the seating area in the lower level lobby, the chairs in the lounge area of the women’s washroom and the set of Life Lights pamphlets available at the information centre in the rear entrance.
