Temple Hatikvah’s Sisterhood is a social organization for affiliated and non-affiliated women connected with Temple Hatikvah. As a social group, we run a variety of programs throughout the year. In the past we have sponsored programs on such diverse topics as Money Management and Sex in the Torah. In addition to being a social organization, Sisterhood’s other function is to raise funds for the betterment of the Temple, including donating monies to our Religious School. Some of our roles in the Temple include, but are not limited to:

  • Management of  the Temple Gift Shop and annual Chanukah Boutique
  • Presentation of a gift to each B’nai Mitzvah
  • Preparation of Yom Kippur’s Break Fast
  • Sponsoring the annual Sisterhood Service
  • Hosting various programs and speakers throughout the year

Below is our calendar describing our activities. If you have any questions or would like to join, please do not hesitate to contact us at 973-584-0212 x6, or by email at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. .
