Sisterhood Gift Shop Our gift shop offers numerous choices whenever you want to purchase a Bar or Bat Mitzvah or wedding gift or just something for yourself. Choose from beautiful Judaic items such as jewelry, Shabbat candle sticks, Kiddush cups, menorahs, dreidels, Bar and Bat Mitzvah cards and more. You may also place an order by contacting the Sisterhood Gift Shop chair. The shop is located across from the temple office.
Sisterhood Wine Cellar The Wine Cellar is located in the Sisterhood Gift Shop. Twenty-one different wines from six different continents are presently stocked. All wine is Kosher for Passover. Special orders can be taken for dinner parties, Bar/Bat mitzvahs and/or weddings. Sherry Ostroff oversees the Wine Cellar, and encourages you to contact the temple office for more information or to place an order.
Leagram Anniversary Cards One of Sisterhood’s biggest fundraisers is our Leagram Anniversary cards. Congregants receive a list of members’ anniversaries each December. After they complete and send in the list, two Sisterhood volunteers then prepare and send cards to those specific couples throughout the following year. Landmark Leagram cards are sent to couples with a special 5 or 10 year anniversary. Congregants can also choose to send a bottle of wine from our Wine Cellar along with the Leagram.
What a wonderful way to help couples celebrate their anniversaries!!
