Etz Chaim Sisterhood


The Sisterhood of Etz Chaim is dedicated to building our shul community by bringing women of all ages together for learning, socializing, fundraising, and recreation.  Throughout the year we provide an assortment of educational, cultural and social programs to foster friendships and enhance the unity in our shul while exposing our members to new experiences. 

In recent years we have had inspirational speakers, a panel of the matriarchs from our own community telling about their lives and values as woman when they were young, cooking demos, flower arranging, museum trips and more - all in a relaxed, fun and casual environment. 

Sisterhood also runs fundraising programs like the Mishloach Manot Basket and Rosh Hashanah Card to provide much needed funds for the synagogue. Currently we are working on a fundraising project which will include creating a beautiful Tallit for the Kol Hanearim Aliyah on Simchat Torah. The Sisterhood is also an active participant in Chesed activities at the shul, helping to facilitate our chesed programs at Federation Plaza.

Sisterhood is open to to new ideas and always looking for ways to get more people involved.  Everything we do is lay led and we count on our volunteers to enhance the life of our shul.

Lisa Wingate

Thursday, June 7th

Based on one of America's most notorious real-life scandals in which Georgia Tann, director of a Memphis-based adoption organization, kidnapped and sold poor children to wealthy families all over the country. 
A riveting, wrenching, but ultimately uplifting tale.
