Our Mission:

As an affiliate of the Women of Reform Judaism (WRJ), the mission of the Kahal Kadosh Beth Elohim (KKBE) Sisterhood is to: 
Serve our members by providing opportunities for social, spiritual, educational and service activities that promote Reform Jewish values; 
Serve our congregation through activities and financial support demonstrating the values of study, service and acts of loving kindness; 
Serve our community by actively engaging in actions that advance the spirit of Tikkun Olam.  

Upcoming Events

From the Sisterhood Presidents

We hope that you and your family had a meaningful Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur. Though we were not able to worship in person at KKBE, the livestream services conveyed the warmth and community of our congregation. Thank you to Rabbis Alexander and Kanter, Robin Shuler, Koleinu, Mark Swick and the KKBE staff for all they do.

For those of you who have not had the opportunity to see the renovations of the Social Hall, it is beautiful. Sisterhood is pleased to have provided financial support to purchase new chairs, new carpet for Chosen Treasures Gift Shop and the museum, and, just this past month, upgrades to the audio-visual equipment. We are able to do this through the funds raised by Chosen Treasures. Please consider purchasing Chanukah gifts, as well as gifts for new babies, B’nai Mitzvah, weddings, and other simchas from Chosen Treasures.

Sisterhood programming notes:

 Now that the High Holidays are over, we are pleased to offer several programs this Fall. Next up is the Challah Bake on Sunday, October 10th at 1:00 pm. Once again we welcome Chef Marcie Rosenberg who will share her recipes and techniques for baking delicious challah. For
questions and to RSVP, please email

 We are pleased to be co-sponsoring two events with the KKBE Social Action Committee, Hadassah, Synagogue Emanu-El Sisterhood and Tikkun Olam in support of the Lowcountry Period Project. On Wednesday, October 6th at 7:00 pm, please join us as Rabbi Alexander interviews best-selling author Anita Diamant on her latest book, Period. End of Sentence.  On Sunday, October 24 from 2:00- 4:00 pm, we will be hosting a Period Packing Party in the KKBE Courtyard. 

 Save the Date! On Wednesday, November 10th at 12:00 noon, grab your lunch and join us for a virtual discussion with Karen White, author of the Tradd Street series. Detailed information about this event is forthcoming.

As always, we welcome your thoughts and ideas. Feel free to contact us at

Our Sisterhood: Who We Are

What started out as a Hebrew Ladies Sewing Circle in 1838, became the KKBE Sisterhood, an affiliate of Women of Reform Judaism, in 1844. We invite you to join us as we honor and preserve our legacy, and shape our future for generations to come. Sisterhood has events, activities, and volunteer opportunities for all. If you are looking for a way to get involved with the KKBE Community, this dynamic and warm group of women is looking forward to welcoming you! Visit our beautiful new website at


Who We Are

We are a warm, welcoming group of women.

We are professionals, retirees, singles, moms and grandmothers.

We are newcomers, natives and everything in between.

We are Jewish, we are not Jewish.

We are members of KKBE, but not necessarily.

What We Do

We assist our synagogue in furthering religious education, humanitarian, and social goals.

We raise funds to support our Religious School and Temple Youth Groups.

We provide gifts for B’nai Mitzvah students and confirmands.

We contribute funds to help maintain and preserve our historic synagogue and cemetery.

We affiliate with and support Women of Reform Judaism (WRJ) including the YES (Youth, Education and Special Projects) Fund.

Our contributions help train and inspire future leaders, rabbis, and cantors and support special projects for humanitarian causes.
