Sisterhood

Agudas Achim Sisterhood is dedicated to bringing the women of our community together socially and spiritually as a community within a community. Throughout the year, we offer many ways to unwind after long days – at a local pub or for a game night – or to spend time together at a morning Tea or evening Soiree. We also get together for guest speakers and Sunday hikes. Membership is open to any woman associated with Agudas Achim – no matter your age or whether you are Jewish or the relative of a Jewish member.

Our Sisterhood is growing and changing. If you haven’t come out to an event in a while, come to our next event to check us out! We can’t wait to see you! You can join our online conversation on Facebook “Agudas Achim Sisterhood of VA” or by subscribing to our newsletter. Contact Sharon Montanez become a member and to purchase your cool Sisterhood T-shirt ($10) and show your Sisterhood pride!! All of the cool gals are doing it!

Remember to shop local and visit your AAC Judaica Shop!

“The most important thing about Sisterhood is the friendship and support we give each other. The people I have met have made and continue to make my life a lot better.” — Sisterhood member
