Open Meetings | Gift Shop | Morning Book Group

at the Dawn Rubin Torah Study programFounded in 1906 as the Ladies Auxiliary, Rodfei Zedek Sister­hood continues our tradition of enhancing congre­gational life through program­ing and fund-raising activities.  Our monthly Monday afternoon meetings provide educational and enter­tain­ing programs, open to women and men of the Congregation and their friends as well as the greater Hyde Park community.

at the Hanukkah FairOur 2019-20 programs began with the film The Band's Visit on September 16 and a presentation by Rabbi David Minkus on November 18, "Under­standing How the Rabbis Understood the Torah."  See subsequent programs and future prospects.  Our book group, which meets monthly on Monday mornings (online during shutdown), welcomes new readers and visitors.  Some of us enjoy playing mah jongg on Tuesday afternoons year-round (also online for the time being).

If you would like to become a Sisterhood member, you can join at any of our open meetings, or email us at, or contact the synagogue office.

Sisterhood also raises funds to subsidize congregational programs.  You can help…

  • by doing your gift and holiday shopping at the Nelson Judaica and Gift Shop, where profits support Sisterhood contributions to the Congregation.  The Gift Shop provides items both basic and amusing.  Use our catalogs to find your perfect purchase.
  • by participating in our High Holiday Greetings program.  Thanks to all of you who added your names to the New Year's Greetings listed in the fall Rodfei Zedek Welcome Book.
  • by making honor contributions throughout the year.  Our Social Secretary sends personalized messages to your family and friends when you make a contribution to Sisterhood in their honor.
