We are sisters.
We care for each other, support each other, and are there for each other.

We are philanthropists.
We actively serve Temple Israel and our Jewish community through thoughtful fundraising.

We are leaders.
We run social and educational programming, community service events, and play a major role in the vision of the synagogue.

Our wonderful volunteer staff is happy to help you find just what you’re looking for.
