MDSC's Sisterhood offers the joyful companionship of a vibrant, multigenerational group of women. Members help organize Shabbat Kiddushim, establish Jewish learning programs, develop and support social events and study programs in the synagogue and in the wider Jewish community, and coordinate tzedakah, charitable outreach to those in need.

If you're not already a member of the Sisterhood, we'll be delighted if you'll join us! Join here or  contact Gail Shirazi, our Sisterhood President, or Andrea, ( our Executive Director  with any questions.



Book Club







The Sisterhood Book Club is an especially enthusiastic group. Members gather monthly to discuss their love of fiction and non-fiction books with Jewish themes, and discussions are quite spirited! 

Read a good book by a Jewish author lately? Looking for a fun group of women to bond with? Consider joining our next meeting and bringing along your book recommendations. For more information, please contact Erin Goldstein (


Lectures, Field Trips, Study Sessions

The Sisterhood maintains a vibrant calendar for a vibrant group of women. Field trips (as to the U.S. Holocaust Museum and to a Baltimore mikva), painting lessons, a retro-costume ladies' tea, a sales bazaar, a fashion show (featuring designs by a member of international acclaim), receptions for Israeli diplomats and their spouses, periodic luncheons (Middle Eastern delicacies, of course) -- these are only some of the programs our Sisterhood members enjoy.  Receptions, parties, and study sessions co-sponsored with the Men's Club are grand occasions for this close-knit, multi-generational group to share their enthusiasms.

Community Service 

The Sisterhood is active in community clothing and food drives, aid to the elderly, and preparation of gift baskets at Purim and other Jewish holidays. A hallmark of our community outreach is our volunteer service at Manna Food Center, where members, often joined by family members, sort and package food for those experiencing hunger and food insecurity in Montgomery County.
