Since 1874, Temple B’nai Jeshurun Sisterhood had been your essential connection to the women of Temple B’nai Jeshurun.

      Our mission is to serve the women of TBJ, contribute to the Temple community, as well as provide a foundation for enriching Reform Jewish life at home, at Temple, and in the central Iowa community.

      We sponsor social, educational and social action programs and events.  In the past, Temple sisterhood has sponsored the following social action projects:  books for the Ashcroft Library 2 for 2 projects; plastic bag mats for the homeless; blankets for shelters; volunteering for the planned parenthood book sale; and knitting NICU blankets.  We had group events including Rosh Chodesh Havdalahs, lunch and tour of the Des Moines Art Center and a gathering at Pinot’s Palatte.

      Currently we are gathering donations and crocheting blankets and cat toys for the ARL of Iowa.   Ongoing programming includes Temple Book Club, Hanukkah Happenings, Sisterhood Tea, Supper in the Sukkah, Schmooze and Crafts group, We Do lunch and Breakfast Club.
