Sisterhood is an integral part of Congregation Kol Emeth. Our programs offer spiritual, educational, cultural and social opportunities for the women of Congregation Kol Emeth.

Sisterhood fund-raising provides a significant financial contribution to the synagogue. We serve the community by supporting the Torah Fund of Women's League for Conservative Judaism as well as other national and global Jewish organizations.

Our book club meets 6 times a year with a variety of selections. The review and discussions are under the leadership of Selma Katz.

We are a diverse group of women who enjoy both the company of each other and serving the many needs of Congregation Kol Emeth whether it means sponsoring speakers and/or entertainers or organizing Shabbat kiddushim and Oneg Shabbats or Chanukah bazaars.

Come and participate in our meetings and many activities and join a warm group of caring women.
