Sisterhood

 

CAA Sisterhood is the mix of women from all age groups who have formed lifelong bonds by not only being members of the Congregation Agudas Achim but also by 

empowering themselves to run an organization.

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), USY and other synagogue projects, such as the Kitchen upgrades.

Sisterhood Agudas Achim is a member of the Women’s League of Conservative Judaism. Women’s League is 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 CAA Sisterhood?


The best part of our CAA Sisterhood is the mix of women from all age groups. Bringing together women of many ages and experiences has enabled members to provide their invaluable knowledge, fresh ideas and their own experience to the newer members, so that Sisterhood will thrive and grow with our membership. We develop and initiate new programs and projects, which will benefit our congregation, our community, and our Sisterhood. Your involvement with Sisterhood is very important. We work together to give back to our CAA community while building positive social bonds.  Come to find out what interest you by working on a committee, or volunteer for an event or be part of our board. You’ll be surprise what you will learn and be a part of team!
