Ambassador Ron Dermer – Monday, October 22, 2018
Congregation Beth Israel Sisterhood is one of 600 affiliates of the Federation of Temple Sisterhoods and part of a network made up of more then 100,000 voices. We develop guidelines that support Women of Reform Judaism’s (WRJ) ability to give our members a collective voice on local, national and international issues. Locally we are a group of women of all ages and varied backgrounds. Our common bond is an interest in programs to strengthen and enrich our own Judaism, support our youth, provide Mitzvah to others in our congregation and community and offer opportunities for socialization. Working with a common bond of friendship, we offer programs that will benefit Beth Israel and the greater Houston community. To read about the history of Beth Israel’s Sisterhood click here.
