The mission of Temple Sinai Sisterhood is to provide the women of our congregation with a collective voice, creating opportunities for expressing spirituality and encouraging outlets for creativity while building lasting friendships.  Our religious, educational and social projects financially support and wholeheartedly encourage the shared values of Conservative Judaism.

Sisterhood runs a well-attended book group that meets monthly in members’ homes.

Some recent books that we read most recently:

  • Vigil Harbor–Julia Glass
  • The Heaven and Earth Grocery Store–James McBride
  • Pictures in the Sand–Peter Baluner
  • Woman on Fire–Lisa Barr
  • The Personal Librarian–Marie Benedict and Victoria and Christopher Murray
  • Small World–Laura Zigman

In the fall, we organize a Paid Up Dinner for our members, cooking together in the synagogue kitchen, and then enjoying entertainment provided by our own local talent. In the spring, we run a Donor Dinner fundraiser with a professionally-catered meal and a delightful program. We are always looking for creative cooking or crafts workshops to offer. Fundraising and our gift shop enable us to keep our kosher kitchen stocked.

Sisterhood provides the welcome statements and memorial listings for the High Holiday booklets and babysitting during services, organizes the decorating of our synagogue sukkah, and sponsors the Tu b’Shvat seder.  We coordinate and participate in a Sisterhood Shabbat service in late winter and present a gift to Bar and Bat Mitzvah students on their special day to welcome them into our  prayer community.

Sisterhood annual dues are $50. New members are offered the first year free of charge. Join Sisterhood and become a valued part of our extended Sinai family. You will make friends for life! Call the office at 781-631-2763 or email

Sisterhood Chairs: Judy Locke, Rayna Aronson, Rosalie Miller
