The members of Tifereth Israel Synagogue’s Sisterhood provides support and assistance to Tifereth Israel Synagogue and the community at large.
We Serve Our Children
Sisterhood provides financial support to Tifereth Israel’s Silverman Preschool and Abraham Ratner Torah School, and provides holiday treats for the children. Sisterhood also awards scholarships to Camp Ramah each summer and funds special events for our children.
We Serve Our Congregation
Sisterhood also serves home baked sweets after Friday night and Saturday Shabbat Services. A tray of baked goods and a personal visit are shared with bereaved families during the week of shiva. Sisterhood members help the congregation plan, set up. and clean up various programs and activties through the year.
Sisterhood also makes substantial and generous donations to enhance the synagogue’s service to its members and community. The Traditions Gift Shop and Sisterhood’s fund-raising activities insure that Judaism will flourish and grow in San Diego.
We Serve Our Community
Members of Tifereth Israel Synagogue’s Sisterhood also perform innumerable mitzvot outside the walls of the synagogue. We collect toiletries and other necessities for Rachel’s House, a shelter for abused women. We also collect eyeglasses for the San Diego Center for the Blind. We provide meals for San Diego’s homeless and volunteer at the Cottage of Israel.
