Who We Are:
A dynamic inter-generational group of women whose mission is to provide a social outreach program, which will enhance their connection to the synagogue and Judaism. In hopes of enriching ourselves, our community and our Temple family, our goal is to offer programs that provide spiritual and intellectual fulfillment.
What We Do:
- We sponsor terrific events, both religious and secular, to learn from our clergy and other speakers and to bond with and support the women within our temple community.
- We do outreach and tzedakah, providing meals, clothing and support to those in need.
- Your dues allow us to contribute to the youth and adult programs, the clergy's discretionary funds, the holiday boutiques and community social service organizations.
We welcome your participation and encourage new members to get involved. Annual Friend of a Friend/Chaverot dues may be paid along with your Temple membership or anytime. For more information, please contact the Temple Office at 516-621-6800 or [email protected]
