Established in May of 1948, Beth El’s Sisterhood works to uphold and preserve the timeless ideals and cherished rituals of Jewish tradition. The Sisterhood supports Beth El in innumerable ways, including advancing the congregation’s financial welfare through fundraising events, providing scholarships for Beth El students, and collaborating with our clergy to help lead prayer services and other ritual experiences. Our Sisterhood is one of the largest and most active synagogue sisterhoods affiliated with the Women’s League of Conservative Judaism and the Maryland Federation of Jewish Women’s Organizations.
Sisterhood membership offers new friends, immersive cultural experiences, and enriching volunteer opportunities.
You can help the Sisterhood fulfill its mission of supporting Beth El Congregation and Schools by sponsoring a Sisterhood event or making a contribution in honor of a loved one’s memory.
Run by Sisterhood volunteers, Beth El’s Judaica Shop offers a wide selection of exquisite ritual art for all holidays, occasions, and milestones. Available to purchase tax-free, the proceeds of every sale directly benefit Beth El Congregation and Schools.
