Sisterhood has long nurtured the well-being of Congregation Beth Sholom and our community, and we are committed to playing a significant role in the social and civil concerns that surround us.  As Jewish women, we have sustained a people whose history is rich with achievement and triumph. Please bring your ideas, your passion and your love of our community to Beth Sholom Sisterhood. Individually, each of us has a voice.  Together, we bring strength, energy, intelligence and enthusiasm to every project.

Who We Are

Congregation Beth Sholom’s Sisterhood is a strong and diverse community of women.  We are mothers and great-grandmothers, single women and soccer moms, homemakers and professionals.    Membership offers opportunities for service, social activities, educational experiences, fundraising and personal growth.  Sisterhood supports Congregation Beth Sholom in many ways, through fundraising projects, beautification efforts, and by supporting our youth programs. Our group is warm, welcoming and nurturing to all in our community.  By becoming part of the Sisterhood, you become a key member of the Beth Sholom family.

As always, our goals cannot be realized without our committed volunteers. Please consider becoming a volunteer. Please contact: cbschesedcenter@bethsholomrochester.org

March/April 2023 Updates


Beth Sholom Curbside Pantry
The pantry is back out in front! Thank you to all involved in getting it back on its feet. We are continuing to collect canned goods, small laundry detergents, feminine hygiene items, and dental hygiene items. You can either leave the items, near the indoor pantry, in the chesed room or put them directly into the curbside pantry. This has been a very successful endeavor and the number of people who are experiencing food insecurity continues to be high.


Health Event
On January 31st, there was a Panel Discussion on Perspectives on Awareness, Inclusion, and Belonging for Jewish people with disabilities. The event was recorded. Here is the link to the recording of the panel discussion.
