Sisterhood

Mission Statement

Our Sisterhood is dedicated to carrying out B'nai Israel Jewish Center's goals of being a welcoming, inclusive center for Jewish life in Petaluma, and addressing and nurturing the cultural, religious, spiritual, educational, and social needs of all those living in the Jewish community. We raise funds to support BIJC through membership dues and activities throughout the year. Sisterhood's goal is to make Judaism meaningful, dynamic and vital for every member of our BIJC family.

Interested in joining? We'd love to meet you. The cost of an annual membership is just $36. For more information please contact our Co-Presidents Ellen Lustbader (707-559-5090) or Carolyn Kaufman (707) 338-0575. You do not have to be a BIJC member to be a Sisterhood member.

 May the door of our Sisterhood be wide enough to receive all who hunger for love, all who are lonely for fellowship.

May it welcome all who have cares to unburden, thanks to express, hopes to nurture.

May the door of this Sisterhood be narrow enough to shut out pettiness and pride, envy and enmity.

May its threshold be no stumbling block to young or straying feet.

May it be too high to admit complacency, selfishness, and harshness.

May our sisterhood be, for all who enter, the doorway to a richer and more meaningful life.
