Cherish the Past, Challenge the Future

Sisterhood — committed to each other, to our faith, to our community and to our future

Sisterhood’s Mission

  • Support Baltimore Hebrew Congregation and its affiliated schools.
  • Enrich the Jewish life of Sisterhood women.
  • Increase awareness of Jewish and community concerns and provide opportunities for Sisterhood members to become involved.
  • Perpetuate Reform Judaism.

We work toward these goals with our charitable giving and our programs that provide opportunities for spiritual, social and intellectual growth.

Social Action

Casseroles for Our Daily Bread

Casseroles of BBQ chicken are delivered monthly to our Daily Bread. To download the recipe, click here. Aluminum pans for the casseroles can be picked up at the Temple Office. Casseroles should be put in the Sisterhood freezer in the kitchen. Be sure to label the casseroles with your name and the contents. Use the labels outside the freezer to label the casserole with the date. Also put your name in the notebook outside the freezer. INFO: Chair, Marcia Gampel, mathmjg@aol.com or 443-857-9619.
