Shabbat Kiddushim

Extraordinary fare awaits congregants in the Sriqui Social Hall immediately following Shabbat morning services.  On weekends, when there aren’t special events taking place in the synagogue, a basic luncheon follows the Kiddush. 

Members often sponsor an upgraded or premium luncheon in celebration of a simcha or in memory of a loved one. For details on how to arrange such a luncheon, please contact our Events Manager and Sisterhood President, Naomi Elimelech (



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!

Sisterhood Luncheon

Our annual luncheon is a grand occasion for members of this close-knit, multi-generational group. Delicious Middle Eastern food and an exciting program, reinforced by a sales bazaar, cooking demonstration, or fashion show, make for a rewarding and memorable afternoon. Throughout the year, the women of MDSC participate in myriad dynamic and interesting events. The annual Sisterhood Luncheon is one of the most popular.




Community Service 

The Sisterhood is active in community clothing and food drives, aid to the elderly, and preparation of gift baskets in conjunction with 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.
