Sisterhood is an active and vibrant arm of the Yorktown Jewish Center.  We offer a large array of programs and activities, providing many opportunities for fun, friendship and learning.  We engage in many fund raising activities that help support both the YJC and the larger community.  In addition, our association with Women’s League For Conservative Judaism affords us many resources for guidance, education and growth. 

Examples of the wide range of our programs are:

  • Women’s study groups
  • Brunches and joint programs with the YJC Men’s Club
  • Educational speakers and movies
  • Torah Fund Woman of the Year program
  • Sisterhood Shabbat Weekend
  • Women’s Seder
  • Catering and baking for kiddushim and holidays
  • Support of Building Fund
  • Rosh Hashanah, Birthday Card and Mishloach Manot fund raisers
  • Bingo kitchen
  • Judaica gift shop

Our sisters are proud to be active participants in the synagogue and in Shabbat services.  Many are Torah and Haftorah readers.  Our membership has a warm and friendly atmosphere.  We look forward to your joining us and becoming one of our sisters.  Shalom, Jackie Martins and Laura Plotnick, co-Presidents
