Come Home to Barnert!



The Barnert Temple Sisterhood (BTS) is about sharing, spirituality, service and friendship.  The 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):

  • Fun game nights
  • Educational speakers on advocacy and key topics of interest
  • Another spiritually uplifting Sisterhood Shabbat
  • A moving Women's Seder
  • Joint social events with the Men's Club
  • 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

Become part of something special, and become a member of the BTS!  To learn more about the Barnert Temple Sisterhood (BTS) and what we can offer you, contact:
