Founded in 1906 as the Ladies Auxiliary, Rodfei Zedek Sisterhood continues our tradition of enhancing congregational life through programming and fund-raising activities. Our monthly Monday afternoon meetings provide educational and entertaining programs, open to women and men of the Congregation and their friends as well as the greater Hyde Park community.
Our 2019-20 programs begin with the film The Band's Visit on September 16 and a presentation by Rabbi David Minkus on November 18, "Understanding How the Rabbis Understood the Torah." See this year's programs develop. Our book group, which meets monthly on Monday mornings, welcomes new readers and visitors. Some of us enjoy playing mah jongg on Tuesday afternoons year-round.
If you would like to become a Sisterhood member, you can join at any of our open meetings or email us at [email protected] or contact our synagogue office.
Sisterhood also raises funds to subsidize congregational programs. You can help…
- by doing your gift and holiday shopping at the Nelson Judaica and Gift Shop, where profits support Sisterhood contributions to the Congregation. The Gift Shop provides items both basic and amusing; use our catalogs to find your perfect purchase.
- by participating in our High Holiday Greetings program. Thanks to all of you who have added your names to the New Years Greetings listed in the fall Rodfei Zedek Welcome Book. Thanks to Sheila Schwartz for her fine work on this project!
- by making honor contributions throughout the year. Our Social Secretary sends personalized messages to your family and friends when you make a contribution to Sisterhood in their honor.
