We are a multi-generational group of women who offer support to our religious school, synagogue, and community. With several special interest groups and events ranging from social to community service, we hope to provide you a stronger connection to the CAA family.
Sisterhood Agudas Achim supports our own community through a vast array of programming for the congregants as well as contributing financially to the CAARS (Congregation Agudas Achim Religious school), United Synagogue Youth (USY) and other synagogue projects.
Sisterhood Agudas Achim is a member of the Women’s League for Conservative Judaism, the largest synagogue-based conservative women’s organization in the world. Our mission is to strengthen and unite the women of our congregation and support them in mutual efforts, to understand and perpetuate Conservative Judaism in the home, synagogue, and community and to reinforce our bonds with Israel and Jews worldwide.
What is Sisterhood Doing This Year?
For 5778 (2017-18) the SAA board has identified the following priorities:
- Support synagogue youth
- Engage in innovative programming
- Socialize with your sisters!
How do we do this? You’ll have the opportunity to socialize at new programs as well as tried and true favorites, such as the Painting Party and Fredericksburg Trip. Bring the kiddos to family-friendly events like Chanukah Bingo and the Christmas Cookie Project. We put a new twist on programs, such as Ladies Night Out (aka Opening Event). We raise money to support CAARS and USY with fundraising projects like the Rosh Hashana honey sale and the CAA directory, and we support future Conservative clergy through a very successful Torah Fund Dinner. Of course, Sisterhood is proud to offer CAA’s Judaica Shop under the direction of Kathy Benayoun and a group of dedicated volunteers. Click here for the Judaica Shop.
