Sisterhood

Temple Kol Ami Sisterhood

The purpose of our Sisterhood is to foster and further the highest ideals of Reform Judaism as expressed through the Temple, to promote closer fellowship amongst our members and to offer service to the congregation and greater community through religious, social, philanthropic and educational activities.

Temple Kol Ami Sisterhood provides a collective identity for the women in our congregation and offers an outlet for the creative energy, talent and leadership potential of each of our members. We maintain a positive, supportive presence within our Temple family and the greater community. Our goal is to strengthen Reform Judaism and Jewish humanitarian causes at a local, district and national level.

Any woman who is committed to the goals and objectives of the Sisterhood and Jewish community is eligible for membership.


A Message from the Co-Presidents

We take great pride in presenting our TKA Sisterhood for the 2016-2017 year. This is an award-winning group of women who are leaders at Temple and in our community. Almost one hundred strong, representing nearly a third of our entire Temple membership we boast an outstanding level of participation. Our programming is aimed at all women of varying ages and interests. We have day and evening programs, weekend and weekday events. Our topics are religious, social action, health and wellness, fashion, literature and sometimes just fun. Now is the time to take your step into Sisterhood! Help us reach our goal of 100% participation.

Without YOU, we’re one Sister short!
STRONGER TOGETHER
