Peninsula Sinai Women

Our mission is to make Judaism meaningful, dynamic and vital for every one of our members.

We would like to invite all the women of Peninsula Sinai to join us. Many of you are current members. Some of you have been members in the past and others have not yet been part of our group. We are a diverse group of women with ages covering a wide range. Thanks to proceeds from your past dues, the Judaica Shop and the Purim Project we are able make an annual donation to Kesher: The Greenburg Religious School, Mazon and Masorti. We also help support Women’s League for Conservative Judaism through annual dues, and make some contribution to Torah Fund which helps support the Jewish Theological Seminary in N.Y., The Zeigler School of Rabbinic Studies in L.A. and The Schecter Institute of Jewish Studies in Jerusalem. 

The Goals of PS Women are:

  • Further Jewish education for women as well as support a full program of Jewish education for children and young adults.
  • Promote the ideals of Conservative Judaism by stressing ethical and religious practices in daily living and the observance.
  • Develop the personal growth of each of our members and promote friendship through programs that are religious, educational, cultural, civic, social and recreational.
  • Advocate responsibility for and involvement in community, national and world affairs.

Shalom Bayit Adopt-A-Family:

Adopt-A-Family provides basic necessities, food, and Chanukah gifts and/or gift cards to battered women and their children facing the holidays alone. For abused women starting a new life, many having left their homes and possessions behind, Adopt-A-Family is an opportunity for hope and help in getting back on their feet. Here is a little information about the family that we adopted last year:

Alison is a Jewish single mother of an elementary aged girl who needed to flee her marriage due to constant emotional abuse that was becoming physical. She also has two college age teenagers, a boy and a girl. Alison began to see her daughter becoming increasingly worried and upset, and left to help create a safe environment for them both. They are beginning to thrive emotionally, even through the financial strain of building a new life.

Our PSW board this year looks forward to welcoming new members to PSW.
Women who are new members to PSW get the first year free and should contact Audrey at audreyzs@comcast.net. Please feel free to contact any of us if you have questions.

President: Sandy Greene
Treasurer: Sue Blockstein
Past President: Audrey Silverman
Judaica Shop Chairs: Lisa Reitman and Sandy Shepler
