A blessing joke:
I saw a Rabbi blessing food while golfing.
I mentioned that it was strange, but he told me it was parve for the course.
But on a serious note…
As we start to emerge from the difficult last two years, we have many reasons to count our blessings.
I, for one, am thankful to all the men and women who work at hospitals and clinics to care for us when we’re not well. They are all a blessing to me.
The Count Your Blessings campaign is one of Sisterhoods biggest fundraisers.
We hope you will find blessings below that speak to you personally, but feel free to write your own and make donations based on the value of those blessings.

Tikkun Olam Club
Help Us Repair the Community
The purpose of the Tikkun Olam Club is to bring together adults within our community who share an interest in “repairing the world.” Throughout the year, Sisterhood participates in projects that seek to remedy and address various needs within the community. Hunger is a priority need. Through the Tikkun Olam Club program, we hope to build interfaith participation in addressing vital community needs.
Tikkun Olam Club members receive a package of benefits including:
- Invitations to participate in community events and Sisterhood social action projects.
- A Passport Unlimited Dining Card dining card during your membership year, good for 2 for 2:1 entrees at hundreds of fine dining establishments throughout San Diego, in many U.S. cities and in Canada. Enjoy dining, shopping and traveling with your new card.
- Other special benefits that may be available during the year.
A Tikkun Olam membership alone does not carry the rights and privileges that come with a traditional Sisterhood membership, unless it is purchased along with or in addition to a regular membership package.
Sisterhood tributes are a great way to show appreciation for a friend or loved one and support Sisterhood at the same time. Remember to send Sisterhood tributes for all of your simchas or memorials.
