B'rit Nashim (Covenant of Women) is a group of Sinai women who meet once a month for programs of personal interest and Jewish content. The purposes of the group are to build a community of women within the larger community of Congregation Sinai, to share interests, and to strengthen our connections to Judaism.
Each fall, B’rit Nashim welcomes new members. This brings wonderful new energy and input to our “covenant.” We invite you to join us. We meet the second Monday of most months. Potential members are invited to one or both of our Membership Recruitment meetings on:
Monday, September 12 at 7:15 PM
Monday, November 14 at 6:00 PM (note time due to cooking activity)
Watch for additional details as the dates approach.
Some highlights from last year included:
-Preparing dinner from the book The Vilna Vegetarian Cookbook, a Ko-sher cookbook, originally published in Yiddish in the late 1930's.
-Creating and leading the Erev Sukkot Service for Congregation Sinai.
-A Tour of the Argentina exhibit at the Jewish Museum Milwaukee.
-An evening of movement and dance to celebrate Tu B'Shvat, new year of the trees.
-Exploring short story writing.
-Sharing an Ethiopian dinner and learning about the culture from the owners of the restaurant.
-An inspiring offsite Shabbat retreat with the topic of "Our Own Voices".
Even more than our activities, the most wonderful thing about B’rit Nashim is that we have the opportunity to form meaningful connections with other women at Sinai.
