Message from Sisterhood President

Dear Sisters and Friends,

t's spring and I'm looking forward to seeing many of you at our annual first night community seder on April 10. There will also be a breakfast that morning at which you can sell your chametz.

Our next planned activity is at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art. On April 30, members of Sisterhood will be viewing Picasso and Rivera. The email has already gone out and space for the tour is limited. Even if you don't do the tour, you may be able to join us at the museum and then have lunch with us (maybe Canter's Deli?) The play opportunity later this spring at REDCAT is 'The Designated Mourner.'  Keep watching your email. It's planned for May 21.

Cookbooks are here and are available for purchase!  Make checks payable to Temple Emet Sisterhood.  $18.00    They are ready ready for Mothers Day.  

Some good news about Ralphs shopping. Our participants have increased 50% and we be getting a check for about $40. Some bad news? Only 6 households have registered. The number for Temple Emet is 82623. Please register under the community tab on Ralphs web site. If we increase another 50% . . . If you are having problems registering, please let me know and I'll walk you through it.

Our pushke boxes have provided about $85 since we started the project. Old ideas never go totally out of fashion. What a great way to support Temple Emet. We'll have them at services and at sisterhood meetings. We'll collect the change at future meetings. 

Natalie Spencer is always glad to hear from those wishing to sponsor Onegs or flowers for the bema. Please call her at 310-370-7171 to secure your date for your important occasions. Also, please bring goodies for the Oneg. It doesn't have to be sweets; it can be nuts, fruit, cheese, . . .

Our next Sisterhood meeting will be on Tuesday, April 25 at 7:00 p.m. at Temple. Please join us! I'm hoping that you want to be active in our loving community.

Your Sisterhood President, Sunny Moss or 310-540-2603




All women who are members of Temple Emet are welcome to join! 





We invite you to join the Sisterhood of Temple Emet and become part of a friendly, diverse, and caring community of women. We offer a number of opportunities to socialize, celebrate and worship together, and to contribute to the well-being of our congregation and community. All women who are members of Temple Emet are invited to join Sisterhood. 

Sisterhood is the right arm of Temple Emet. We are involved mostly behind the scenes to ensure our Temple's needs are met.  As a Sisterhood member, there are many opportunities to involve yourself in Temple life: Shabbat “Meet and Greet” greeters, the first and third of the month Shabbat Friday Night Services and the second Saturday of the month Shabbat Service, classes, community out-reach programs, discussions and presentations of community speakers, plus religious and secular events to name a few.  Our one desire is to help make our Temple activities as successful as possible.  We pride ourselves in doing the best job possible both collectively and individually.

           Another way to help our Temple is to use the Scrip Program brought to us by Hilda Weintraub. When we purchase scrip for personal items such as food, gas, apparel, restaurants, gifts of all kinds including entertainment tickets for movies and theme parks, we pay the standard price and add nothing more. Please know that the difference between the amount you pay for the scrip card you purchase and the lesser amount Sisterhood pays to the scrip company for that card (the “rebate” percentage) is your tax-deductible donation to Temple Emet Sisterhood. Please read and utilize the monthly email listing of hundreds of vendors who may change from month to month, then send your selections to Hilda's email address at: When you email Hilda your order please designate which card value you want to order if the card is available in different amounts. Then send your check, made out to Temple Emet Sisterhood to Natalie Spencer at 19521 Linda Drive, Torrance 90503.  You will receive the scrip within a short time.  It's a win-win situation for you and our wonderful Temple.

            Our desire is to have all Temple Emet women belong to Sisterhood.  The more ladies we have, the more we can do to ensure our Temple's success. And with many hands doing the work, the labor does not fall on a few good-hearted sisters,   rather, the work is spread among many. I find the Sisters of Tempel Emet are kind, loving, smart, caring women who are willing to do what it takes to get the job done.  I've always said that when you join Sisterhood, you are giving yourself a lasting gift of like-minded, wonderful friends. 

             Shalom and with love, your Sisterhood President, Sunny Moss
