Sisterhood

 

Founded in 1896, the Sisterhood is a separate non-profit entity that has a number of communal responsibilities, including decoration and running of our renowned Succah and beautification of the Main Sanctuary during Shabuot. It is also responsible for maintenance of the Little Synagogue and the Torah mantles. The Sisterhood supports many charitable organizations in New York and Israel.  

To get involved, contact Carla Salomon Schein at scheinc@ujafedny.org
