SisterhoodatTBE logosis·ter·hood (Noun)
1. The feeling of kinship with and closeness to a group of women. 

[email protected] brings together the women of our community through fun social gatherings and stimulating Jewish themed programs.  Events are planned by committee members and are led by our magnificent clergy and staff as well as congregants and speakers with expertise in various fields. 

[email protected] is open to all congregants who identify as women.

Want to connect with a bunch of great women and help out on the [email protected] committee? We would love your input and enthusiasm and there's not a lot of heavy lifting! Contact Stephanie Kasok, [email protected] or Sheryl Perechocky, [email protected], co-chairs, for more information. 

[email protected] offers delightful social opportunities and wonderful learning programs for all who identify as women in the TBE community. In May a group of us gathered at TBE for a night of beading jewerly with Sarapaan of Wellesley, and in July several dozen gathered for a wondrous evening of acoustic music and a delicious meal while we visited each other under the stars in the TBE rear courtyard. We have a wonderful lineup of learning and social events schedule for the coming year. Join us for any and all of our upcoming programs. Please join us!

Upcoming Events

Two Cantors and a Sing-a-Long
Monday, October 23, 7:30 pm

Sisters, let's sing! Get to know Cantor Zell as she and Cantor Sufrin lead us in song. Camp, youth group, pop, Israeli and American favorites. Join us for an upbeat, interactive evening that you won't want to miss! All voices resonate harmoniously in the sanctuary! Let's rock! 

Pot Brownies at the Synagogue
Wednesday, November 1, 7:00 pm

Recreational Pot will soon be legal in Massachusetts. This is a real issue congregations are facing now and will be facing even more so in the future. Pot brownies at the Bar Mitzvah? Vaping in the courtyard at the wedding? High at the High Holy Days? How do we respect everyone's rights and space? Join Rabbi Sisenwine as we dig into this complex issue. This event is co-hosted with the TBE Men's Club. All are welcome. There is no charge for this event; please sign up so we can plan accordingly.

First Monday of the Month Drop-In Mah Jongg Game Nights

On the first Monday night of each month. No game nights August. We pick up the second Monday in September (due to the holiday), bring your Mah Jongg group to play at TBE or come by yourself/with a friend to join an impromptu group. Bring your game set, if you have one, and your 2017 card (available for purchase now). We hope to see many of you and continue the momentum from our March series of game nights!

Please Note--You need to bring your own Mah Jongg card. They are available for purchase nearby at Taylor's Stationery, 1451 Highland Avenue in Needham, and at various Judaica shops in the area. They can also be ordered online from various Mah Jongg suppliers.
