Sarah Siedel Sisterhood

Our Sisterhood offers ongoing informative and entertaining social programs. It provides a forum for the women of our community to join together in a relaxed, supportive, and informal atmosphere. The Sisterhood is involved in many activities for the Temple, such as organizing the Oneg Shabbat program, fundraising, assisting families sitting shiva, and providing support for bar/bat mitzvah families. Members are encouraged to join the Sisterhood at an annual cost of $35. New members will be given a one year free Sisterhood membership. Sisterhood holds meetings/events throughout the year. Meeting dates are posted on the Temple website and in our newsletter and meeting notices are sent out via email blasts to our members.

Tikkun Olam  (Healing the World)

Our community has a long history of engaging in a number of community service projects.   We have initiated some on our own, and others are cooperative endeavors with other agencies and places of worship in the area.   Most of our efforts center on feeding the hungry.   In conjunction with the Trenton Area Soup Kitchen, the local food pantry and a coordinated interfaith group we participate in on-going efforts to collect, prepare, deliver and serve food in needy communities.   We make an effort to involve all members of the congregation in these service projects, from the youngest Hebrew School students to our adult members.   Our most successful projects in recent years include:

Proceeds from the annual student organized Purim Carnival fund these efforts, along with generous donations from our members.
