Why is our Sisterhood a great place volunteer? Sisterhood Profile

The Elizabeth Community was founded in 1881, and became what it is today during the six decades of the Torah leadership of Rabbi Pinchas M. Teitz, zichrono livracha. Rav Teitz set out in 1935 to establish a modern Torah Community when he accepted Elizabeth’s rabbinate. His vision has been realized and expanded. Our area, known as the Elmora Section, is home to the J.E.C. Elmora Avenue Shul.

When the Elmora Avenue Shul Sisterhood first began in January, 2007, we had a vision of serving our community. Our group was formed to fill what we saw as a void. The women of our Shul have come together to create an organization to reach out to Shul members in whatever capacity is needed.

The Lev Reda Gemach is an integral part of our Sisterhood. The Gemach delivers welcome baskets to new members of our community. In addition, we arrange meals at the homes of community members for the first 2 Shabbatot when a family first moves into Elizabeth. We also insure that Shul members who have lost a loved one, have Shiva meals provided.

The Elmora Avenue Shul Sisterhood sponsors various social functions throughout the year. These are aimed at women, couples and families. If you’re looking for a place to volunteer, to meet your neighbors, or just to have fun, the Elmora Avenue Shul Sisterhood is the place for you!
