"... to serve the cause of Judaism, by strengthening the bond of unity among Jewish women; by learning to appreciate everything fine in literature and to instill the beauty of our ancient observances in the hearts of all our members and their families." --Mathilde Schechter, Founder, National Women's League
Sisterhood of Hillcrest Jewish Center would like to extend to you a hearty welcome. Did you know that your membership in Sisterhood is free for the first year? After that, the dues are $25 annually.
No doubt, as a woman and a Jew, you have faced many challenges and feel strongly about the directions you have taken in life. We offer wonderful opportunities to meet other women in similar circumstances who have stories to share with you. Who knows? This could be the beginning of a beautiful friendship.

Thank you for your generous and thoughtful donation of 40 Blankets to the Ronald McDonald House of New York. Your donation is greatly appreciated.
Since 1979, we have served more than 8,500 families while their children are being treated for cancer. Help and support from groups or individuals like you allow us to provide for all of the families who come through our door.
Every day, children form friendships with other children and through these bonds, regain a sense of control and experience the fun of childhood.
