Agudas Achim 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.

Women's League online:

January Retrospective

   Sisterhood held its annual Sisterhood Shabbat on January 16, 2021, to coincide with Women’s League Sisterhood Shabbat throughout North America. Thank you to the women of Agudas Achim Congregation who led the entire service, from P’Sukei D’Zimra to Adon Olam; and to Carol Simon, past international president of Women’s League, who delivered the address on Behalf of Sisterhood. There Is a Lot Happening at Women’s League!
   Carol Simon returned the following morning for an interactive, lively and informative workshop, “What’s in it for Me?” Cathy Litofsky, president of Seaboard Region, delivered the morning greetings.
   Thanks must go to Sisterhood Shabbat Coordinator Sara Naphtali-Krumbein for assigning all the parts and making sure all the women were where they needed to be at the right time.
   Todah Rabah to Hazzan Elisheva Dienstfrey for her guidance, leadership and expertise.
   Sisterhood is grateful to Lynne Sandler for formatting and producing the gorgeous program.
