Annual Membership Drive

Whether you’re interested in service to the Temple, social action projects, prayer and ritual programs to strengthen Jewish identity for you and your family, or just want to bond with women…Sisterhood is for you! The only requirement is that you are a woman who is a member of the Temple of Israel.
