Sisterhood

Pine Brook Jewish Center’s award-winning Sisterhood is a vital part of the PBJC community, providing much-needed support and services to the Synagogue and the populations it serves.

 

We are a group of women who are actively involved in activities that enrich both the Synagogue and our community in general. We also work to enhance our personal growth and Jewish involvement.

 

We sponsor many of the ongoing events at PBJC and, through our fundraising efforts, are able to donate money for programming that benefits the entire congregation. Our Mishloach Manot Basket Program for Purim has been, and will continue to be, a great success. Sisterhood also provides many important services to PBJC.

 

We supply challah and cake after Friday night Shabbat services, as well as food for Selichot and Yom Kippur “Break the Fast.” We sponsor programs for the Hebrew School, Youth Groups, and Nursery School and send packages to college students who cannot be home for the holidays.

 

Sisterhood, in conjunction with the Caring Committee, assists its members in need whether during a family illness or while in mourning. Additionally, Sisterhood sells tribute cards to mark life cycle events, sells scrip for local stores and operates the PBJC Gift Shop.

 

Our Sisterhood organization is asking for the support of every woman at Pine Brook Jewish Center. We invite you to join us whether you are a longstanding member of the congregation, brand new to PBJC, or just looking for Jewish involvement.

 

If you are a new synagogue member we would like to welcome you with a gift of a free first year of membership to Sisterhood. If you or someone you know is not a member of PBJC, but would like to be involved in our Sisterhood organization, we welcome all Jewish women from the Montville area and beyond.

 

Come join and be a part of this wonderful group of ladies. It’s never too late to join!

 

Please consider sponsoring an Oneg Shabbat for Friday Nights. This special honor is only $18 and is a great way to honor someone or something: birthdays, anniversaries or bar/bat mitzvahs.  Contact Elaine Nachsen at nachsen@aol.com or 973-263-0407.
