The Sisterhood of Temple Emanu-El was established in 1913 and affiliated with NFTS (now WRJ – Women of Reform Judaism), which also formed that year. 2013 marked the centennial milestone for both organizations. As a member of WRJ, our Sisterhood supports the
YES fund (Youth, Education, and Special Projects) which helps to strengthen the institutions of our Reform Movement and ensure the future of Reform Judaism. Sisterhood participates in conventions at the district and national levels of WRJ, and Amy Ahmed serves on the WRJ Southeast District Board as a State VP.
The sisterhood fulfills many roles at the temple. We organize social events that help build strong bonds and friendships among temple women and families. We provide refreshments at the Rosh Hashanah Oneg and serve a full Yom Kippur Break-the-Fast meal for our congregants and Hillel students at no charge. We make a substantial contribution to the temple each year in support of the temple, the religious school and Hillel. When the current temple was built in 2011,
the sisterhood contributed the funds for the Toby S. Whitman kitchen.
For meeting and event dates, refer to the temple website calendar.

We organize and participate in social and cultural activities designed to promote the Jewish interest and the commitment of the temple members, with the goal of instilling a more thorough knowledge and appreciation of the Jewish religion, traditions, and heritage among our members and the laypeople of the Temple, and to build ties with the greater Jewish community. We also seek to establish and maintain ongoing ties with the Jewish students at the University of Alabama, and to work with and assist the Sisterhood of Temple Emanu-El in fund-raising and other Jewish community related-activities.
