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:

Once again, Peninsula Sinai Women have adopted a family from Shalom Bayit to provide basic necessities, food and Chanukah gifts to battered women and their children.  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.

A sign up with more details about the family and their needs is at:
