Sisterhood & Men’s Club
The mission of the Sisterhood of Kehillat Ma’arav, affiliated with Women’s League for Conservative Judaism, is to provide a fun and vibrant environment for its members, support the congregation, its youth and religious school, enhance personal growth, Jewish involvement and sense of community; sponsor programs of joint interest with other Kehillat Ma’arav committees; and promote Conservative/Masorti Judaism in the home, synagogue and community.
KM’s first Sisterhood was formed May 2010. Lori Mendez and Prissi Cohen are serving as Co-Presidents and plan to build the group to include KM and non-KM members alike. Dues for KM members is $36.00/Non-members $54.00. Meetings/Programs will be held monthly. For more information, please contact Prissi Cohen and Lori Mendez.
If you like to play Bingo, then come to KM for a fun filled night of “Kitchen” Bingo! Program benefits HOPE COTTAGE, a transitional housing facility for women and children who are
victims of domestic violence. HOPE COTTAGE is a program of the Family Violence Project of JFSLA, Jewish Family Service of Los Angeles.
Admission: Bring a new kitchen item/s. We are collecting essential cooking/kitchen items to furnish the newly renovated kitchens at HOPE COTTAGE.
The mission of the Federation of Jewish Men’s Club is to involve Jewish men in Jewish life via a series of extensive programs while also providing a body of individuals who may be called upon to support synagogue and community wide functions.
At Kehillat Ma’arav the Men’s Club also is a social, cultural and recreational organization. It enables members to meet new friends and become involved with our Jewish community. The KM club meets on the first Monday evening of each month. For additional information, please call the synagogue office.
