On a personal level, Sisterhood is a group of women who have formed lifelong bonds of friendship by not only by being members of Congregation Brothers of Israel, but also by empowering themselves to run an organization. On a local level, Sisterhood is an organization of women dedicated to the beautification, education and enhancement of the synagogue and, as such, Sisterhood runs many of its own programs and sponsors many of the Congregation’s programs.

On a larger scale, our organization is a participating member of Women’s League for Conservative Judaism (WLCJ) and in addition to supporting CBOI, we also support Conservative Judaism with our participation in the annual Torah Fund. The WLCJ is the largest synagogue based women’s organization in the world. As an active arm of the Conservative/Masorti Movement, WLCJ provides services to 700 affiliated women’s groups in synagogues across North America. This network links 120,000 women in 25 Branches (regions), together with groups in Israel, Great Britain and South America.

The most important reason to join Sisterhood is because of the special relationships you will make with a group of dedicated women. Other important reasons include having a good time and gaining the satisfaction knowing that your membership and participation helps support the synagogue. Sisterhood is not just for long-time synagogue members; Sisterhood is for everyone. We need a mix of long-term members, with their knowledge and experience, and newer members, with their fresh ideas and their own experiences, to help us have the best organization possible.

We are always looking for enthusiastic and creative women to help build our program and support our synagogue. The Sisterhood of CBOI is very fortunate to have women with the vision and knowledge to lead and sustain our institution. We are very proud of the vital role we play in the everyday life of CBOI. Annual membership dues are $36.00 ($25 Seniors) and are used to support all of the work that we do throughout the year.
