Did You Know?

  • We have a Kitchen Committee made up of Sisterhood volunteers who shop, prepare and serve Kiddush lunches almost every Shabbat. 
  • We created a program called “Hug in a Bowl.” Our volunteers make our own soup and deliver it to those needing a warm “hug in a bowl.” 
  • Several of our Sisterhood members attended training with the rabbi and are now trained to be the mashgiach for the kitchen.

We are always looking for new volunteers. Contact Eileen Richman  at if you’d like to help.
