Sisterhood is a group of Jewish women of different backgrounds and ages who gather to observe and promote Jewish values and traditions while enjoying warmth and friendship in the process. We are proud of our accomplishments and look forward to the energy and dynamism our new members bring.

Sisterhood offers:

  • A place for personal growth through classes and programs, and fulfillment through board positions and community service.

  • We gather to plan, study and enjoy monthly programs, ranging from musical to educational, to bus trips to museums and places of interest.

  • A yearly retreat at Camp Ramah in the fall which provides a wonderful opportunity to relax, study, pray, engage in many activities and enjoy each other's company, under the spiritual leadership of Rabbi Nicole Guzik.

  • A yearly Shabbaton in early spring where our members and their daughters lead the entire service, chant from the Torah and give d'rashot and sermons.

  • Rosh Hodesh monthly meetings at different members' homes where we enjoy delicious meals and interesting programs presented by our members.

  • A fabulous Judaica shop offering tallesim and kippot, silver goblets and candlesticks, Pesach plates and challah plates and covers, and beautiful gift items.

  • Opportunity for community service, which brings a lot of joy to the participants as well as the recipients: Project Outreach raises funds for non-perishable food packages which we deliver to needy persons three times a year for Jewish holidays. We do Project Caring by going to visit patients in nursing homes whom we entertain with stories and sing-alongs.

Sisterhood supports Israel and many local Jewish organizations including:

  • We provide funds for our synagogue and our schools, including Sinai Akiba and the Religious School.
  • We fund partial scholarships to Camp Ramah and the Tikvah program at Ramah for special children.
  • We support Torah Fund which helps toward the education of rabbis and cantors in the Conservative Movement. You will receive an exquisite pin when you make a contribution at the Benefactor level and above.

There is something for everyone at Sisterhood. Join us and be fulfilled in many different ways!

Sinai Temple is a partnership between its clergy, staff, lay leaders and devoted members who are committed to supporting the tradition and vision of Sinai Temple. Your gift to Sinai Temple will enable us to continue these holy tasks for years to come. Thank you for helping us to bring our history, our beliefs and our promise to a new generation.
We are a member of the Federation of Jewish Men's Clubs. We aim to provide a framework within which men can broaden their knowledge and understanding of the history and values of our people and in which they can make tangible contributions of their talents and treasure in an environment of good fellowship.
Our goal at Sinai Temple is to create a Bar/Bat Mitzvah program that is a spiritual and religious experience counseling child and family to God, the Jewish people and to each other.
The Sinai Temple Israel Center is the first synagogue center that provides programmatic resources and avenues for Los Angeles Jewry to establish cultural, professional, spiritual, and economic ties to the land of Israel.
Sinai Temple's 20's & 30's Community
