The Sisterhood of TBA offers every woman the opportunity to be part of a group of women who share common interests, develop lasting friendships, and to be part of one of the most vital organizations in the Jewish world, the Women's League for Conservative Judaism.  We are guided by our mission: “To strengthen, unite and support women in their efforts to understand and perpetuate Conservative Judaism in the home, synagogue and community, and reinforce their bonds with Israel and Jews worldwide.”

We aim to fulfill this mission through programs and community service projects designed to nurture and foster learning experiences such as workshops, lectures, and study days; living experiences such as book clubs and cooking classes, Shabbat and “Rosh Hodesh Ahotai: Our Sisters’ Rosh Hodesh”, and theatre groups; sharing opportunities and Tikkun Olam such as our Tzedakah Box and Hanukkah Candle Drive, Torah Fund, and New Year Greeting Journal.  Our programs and fundraising projects benefit Temple Beth Am, Pressman Academy, The Youth Department, Camp Ramah Scholarships and the Jewish community at large.

Sisterhood invites your membership, at a fee of only $35 per year. To join Sisterhood, please contact one of our Membership co-Vice Presidents, Sandra Braun at or Sherri Cohn at
