Women’s Network

Tikvat Israel’s Women’s Network, also known as its Sisterhood, is a vibrant and dynamic organization, serving the synagogue in a myriad of ways. As a chapter of the Women’s League for Conservative Judaism (WLCJ), Women’s Network is dedicated to engaging, enriching and empowering Jewish women; supporting them in mutual efforts to understand and perpetuate Conservative/Masorti Judaism in the home, synagogue and community; and reinforcing bonds with Israel and Jews worldwide.

Come to a Women’s Network event to socialize, have fun, and learn  something new. We have activities and creative projects year-round to meet our member interests, celebrate the Jewish holidays, and engage our  community. Tikvat Israel’s Women’s Network warmly welcomes new members – both synagogue congregants and women from the greater Jewish community.

Examples of events:

·        The annual paid-up membership event

·        Rosh Chodesh learning programs

·        Book group discussions

·        Virtual travel programs

·        Art projects

·        Cooking demonstrations

·        Annual baseball outing to a Washington Nationals game

·        Preparation and Sale of Mishloach Manot boxes to congregants and the Early Childhood Center for Purim

·        The annual Shelly Goldin Women’s Network Shabbat

Planning all these events includes member involvement. We meet at the beginning of each program year to discuss and plan our future activities. 

Tikvat Israel’s Women’s Network has received numerous awards and recognitions from WLCJ. The Torah Fund Award has been received each year for reaching the annual fundraising goal. In 2023 the WLCJ honored Tikvat Israel Women’s Network with the Jewels in the Crown award for the many outstanding programs in the previous three years.
