Mission Statement:

The Sisterhood of Temple Beth-El, an inclusive women's group rooted in Reform Judaism, inspires us to leadership and to intellectual, spiritual, and personal growth.  Our commitment to Tikkun Olam and building friendships empowers us to embrace and enrich our membership, our congregation, and our community.

We fulfill this mission by creating a community of women of all ages and from all walks of life to engage in social, religious, cultural, and outreach programs in and around the TBE community. We are a part of the Women of Reform Judaism (WRJ) connecting us to local, region and national Sisterhood organizations.

Project Peacework

On Saturday, October 28, at 2 p.m., we’ll be knitting or crocheting squares to form blankets as gifts for refugee families who have resettled here in Rhode Island.  Please join us and our friends from the Rhode Island Council for Muslim Advancement and other faith communities. Bring completed 8-by-8-inch squares or work on some while with the group. Please bring a vegetarian snack to share.  We’ll gather at Providence Friends Meeting House, located at 99 Morris Avenue in Providence.
