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.  

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.
