Sisterhood

Welcome to Sisterhood – The Women of Temple Aliyah!

Sisterhood is a community-building resource for the women of Temple Aliyah that enables us to find camaraderie, deepen our spiritual connection to the synagogue and our connection to each other, and enjoy shared interests and events.

We welcome women of all ages to join us at any event or group meeting!

Sisterhood is managed by the Sisterhood Steering Committee (SSC): Judy Lee, Marcy Leiman and Liat Rosen. Numerous volunteers help us plan events, manage finances, and welcome new members throughout the year.

Mayyim Hayyim

Temple Aliyah is a member of Mayyim Hayyim, a beautiful, local mikveh in nearby Newton, entitling a limited number of congregants to a free immersion gift certificate. All you need to do is:

  1. Request an immersion
  2. Wait 24 hours for a response
  3. Show up at the designated time
  4. Let them know you are a member of Temple Aliyah

There are numerous reasons for immersions, including relationships, women’s cycles, birthing/creating a family, healing, blessings, holidays, and b’nai mitzvot. For a complete list, click here. To learn more about the process and its benefits, visit the Mayyim Hayyim website.
