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.

The Hurricane Harvey Flood Fund

Hurricane Harvey left Houston and surrounding areas in a shambles, but the great people of Houston are banding together to help and heal. Your help is welcome and needed. You may send Gift Cards (Kroger, Target, HEB, Lowe’s, or Visa/Mastercard, etc.) to Congregation Beth Israel. They will be immediately distributed to area neighbors to assist in replacing essential items and children’s school supplies.

You may also Donate directly to Congregation Beth Israel by clicking here. All funds will go directly to aid those who need immediate help. These funds will NOT be held to be allocated later. On behalf of our clergy (Rabbi David Lyon, Rabbi Adrienne Scott, Rabbi Joshua Herman, Rabbi Chase Foster, and Cantor Trompeter), David Scott, Executive Director, and Bruce Levy, Temple President, we are very grateful for your kindness, generosity, and help.

Hurt has no shame and no label; we just need to heal one another.

Rabbi David Lyon
