Women of Congregation Beth Yam – Who are we?
The Sisterhood of Congregation Beth Yam offers the women of our congregation unique opportunities:
- To make close, lifelong friends
- To learn about interesting topics
- To lead a more profoundly Jewish life
- To give back to our community
Our programs and activities add an important dimension of fun and learning for our members. Open to women of all ages and interests, we provide an outlet for the creative energy, talent and leadership of each of our members.
Commitment – it gives our organization meaning
Whether organizing a special religious service, bringing dinner to a bereaved family, planning a progressive dinner, or sponsoring an oneg, our Sisterhood is committed to supporting Congregation Beth Yam and its congregants.
But our commitment doesn’t stop there – we are also deeply committed to our community. Sisterhood raises money for local charities such as Backpack Buddies, VIM, Treat the Troops, Hopeful Horizons, and Habitat for Humanity.
Connection – it is what we are all about
It is the friends you make at a CBY Sisterhood dinner. Or the fun you have at a book club meeting. Or the special feeling you take away from Women’s Torah Study. CBY Sisterhood helps you connect to other women, to women’s roles in Judaism, to social and cultural issues, and to Beth Yam’s caring community.
You are already on your way to becoming a CBY Sisterhood member just by belonging to Congregation Beth Yam. So, take the next step and become actively involved.
Whether you want to come to an occasional meeting or a selected program – or you choose to plunge in and organize events or become a board member – there is a place for you in our Sisterhood. A warm, caring and dynamic group of women will welcome you, however you choose to participate.
Please call Congregation Beth Yam at 843-689-2178 and leave your name for the Sisterhood Membership Chair who will get back to you and answer any questions you may have. OR, you may click here to download a membership application form that you can print out and mail in. Hope to see you soon!
