Who we are




“Enriched By Our Past…

…Endowing Our Future.”




Congregation Shaarey Zedek Sisterhood is an organization of women who help raise funds and promote the education of our congregational youth. We are first and foremost a group of Sisters. We work for the good of our youth, our congregation, our Greater Lansing area, and beyond. Our yearly subsidy is to the religious school; however, we also provide many other congregational services, such as running the gift shop, maintaining the kitchen, putting on OnegsKiddushim, Passover Seders, Yom Kippur;Break-fasts, as well as many other wonderful events and programs.

For Our Synagogue

Sisterhood plays a unique role in our Synagogue – we touch, in some fashion, everyone in our congregation. As the “Moms of the Temple” we provide services such as:

  • Onegs and Kiddushim
  • Yom Kippur ‘”Break Fast”
  • Congregational Seder
  • Assistance with Lifecycle Events
  • The Gift Shop
  • Simchagrams
  • Maintaining the Kitchen
  • Memorial Booklet
  • Membership Directory

For Our Youth

Sisterhood’s main goal is to invest in the future of our youth.

To achieve that goal we provide:

  • Religious School tuition subsidies
  • Youth Scholarship Funds (for camps and youth group events)
  • B’nai Mitzvah and Confirmation gifts

For Greater Lansing and Beyond

Whether through Interfaith programing or Tikkun Olam (Repairing the World), we have always been proud to support our local community. We sponsor:

  • The Gift Shop
  • Programming
  • Tzedakah

With our ties to the Women of Reform Judaism (WRJ) and its Central District, Sisterhood is also part of a larger national community, which continually strengthens our ties to Reform Judaism throughout the world.
