Sisterhood, is the heart and soul of the Greenburgh Hebrew Center. We are approximately 160 women ranging in age from our 20's to our 90's. We are single women, wives, widows, mothers, daughters, grandmothers, and even great¬grandmothers. We are housewives, volunteers, educators, counselors, secretaries, retailers, business women, realtors, nurses, doctors, lawyers and students. We also appreciate a good sense of humor! Presently, we are working, semi¬retired, retired or seeking employment.
Our membership includes great cooks and eaters, needlepoint and knitting experts, artists, mah jongg players, fundraisers, readers and writers, thespians, hostesses, women's rights advocates, and world travelers. We are well versed in books, politics, Israel and the Middle East, public policy, and yes, even occasionally a little local gossip.
Picturing these physical characteristics may require some imagination . . . a member may have an ear for music, a green thumb for the environment, an eye for good art, a job requiring leg work, her hands full with several small children, a heart of gold, the burden of her household on her shoulders, her superiors breathing down her neck, or a sixth sense when it comes to anticipating others' needs.
We are all different shapes and sizes and each has her own interests and abilities. Our life styles differ as do our priorities, but we do all have a common bond . . . WE ARE THE WOMEN OF Sisterhood. Whether you attend every meeting or none at all, whether you are deeply religious or rarely attend services, you are an integral part of our organization.
