The Sisterhood of the Jewish Community Center of Paramus / Congregation Beth Tikvah is a group of vibrant, active Jewish women of varying ages and backgrounds bound together by a common goal. That goal is the shared dedication to the values of Judaism in our homes, Synagogue and community and our desire to intertwine Yiddishkeit with every aspect of our lives.
Mathilde Schechter, founder and first President of Women’s League for Conservative Judaism, declared its mission “to serve the cause of Judaism by strengthening the bond of unity among Jewish women…”.
Strengthen the Bond of Jewish Women
We strengthen the bond of Jewish women by offering interesting, educational and always enjoyable events. Our programs are designed to make each woman more informed about Judaism, give her a heightened sense of Jewish involvement and community, and to raise funds for the many worthy Tzedakah projects that our Shul supports.
Our Many Events
This past year we introduced several new events which included a Tu B’shvat Seder, a Pesach recipe swap and baking demonstration, a Yom Ha’Atzmaut Festival and a Shavuot Chat and Cheesecake. We listened as JCCP/CBT member Jean Weiss told us of her time working with Abba Ebban.
In the upcoming year we will be introducing even more events to mix our rich heritage with our modern day lives. We will begin each monthly board meeting with a D’var Torah delivered by a Sisterhood officer. We are planning trips to a Kosher winery and the Jewish Museum, in addition to working on a Sisterhood Havdalah service and Chanukah Aromatherapy.
Celebrate a Simcha – Sisterhood Can Help
When you celebrate a simcha, Sisterhood’s Judaica Shop, which is located in our main lobby, is a great place to find gifts for all occasions.
Great Way to Make New Friends
Sisterhood is a great way to make new friends and be a part of our family here at the Jewish Community Center of Paramus / Congregation Beth Tikvah. We always welcome new members and encourage everyone to participate at meetings and events.
