TBS Sisterhood

Welcome to the TBS Sisterhood webpage. Sisterhood is busy with events for all ages, whether it’s Maj or Crochet or Dinners, there is sure to be something for everyone. No matter where you are from you’ll be sure to find that we are women from all walks of life and in all stages of life who come together to make friends and have fun while making a difference in our homes, our congregation, and our community.


Creativity, Collaboration, Community. Calling all Sisterhood members (and potential members too). We need you!

TBS Sisterhood is beginning to plan our paid-up Membership event to be held on Sunday, October 28 and we are looking for enthusiastic people with great ideas.

The planning committee is being formed and this is the perfect opportunity for you to get involved.

Whether you are a Sisterhood veteran, a new member to Sisterhood, or are a Sisterhood member but have never been on a committee before, we are looking for your ideas.

The paid-up Membership Event is a much-anticipated favorite among Sisterhood members and is one of our best attended functions. This committee is your chance to contribute your ideas and talents by helping to plan one of Sisterhood’s premier events

and meet other Sisterhood members.

The commitment is short-term, since this is a once a year event. Our first committee meeting will be on Wednesday, Aug. 15 at 7 pm at Temple Beth Sholom in the Susie Amster conference room.

If working to plan an exciting and dynamic event, sharing your ideas with other creative women and meeting other Sisterhood members is for you, we’d love to have you join us on this committee. Please contact Sylvia Borovay, Committee Chair at (714) 812-5565 (cell), (714) 544-7889 (home) or sborovay@hotmail.com or Denise Silberman, VP of Membership at (714) 906-6025 or dsilber100@yahoo.com.


All Sisterhood members are welcome to join us at our general meetings. Not a member? Join now!
