WRJ Women of Reform Judaism LogoThe Barnert Temple Sisterhood (BTS) is about sharing, spirituality, service and friendship.  Sisterhood works to make our Temple life more beautiful, delicious and meaningful.  Our contributions to the congregation and the community are numerous and significant. We have many diverse programs throughout the year that raise funds to support Barnert Temple as well as help charitable causes (tzedakah), and this year is no exception.  We are also a proud member of the Women for Reform Judaism.

We are planning another full year of activities for all ages, stages and interests, including (but not limited to):

  • Thought-provoking book and movie discussions
  • Educational speakers on advocacy and key topics of interest
  • Another spiritually uplifting Sisterhood Shabbat
  • A moving Women's Seder
  • Joint events with the Men's Club and Social Action
  • Cooking programs
  • Our fabulous Chanukah Boutique, where you can shop 'til you drop and fill all your gift and personal needs in one afternoon
  • Countless charitable activities to support our congregation and the broader community
