Sisterhood

Celebration, Education, Dedication

Sisterhood is a heart-centered tapestry of women working together as one big family.

Each member of the NVHC Sisterhood is unique, bringing talent and expertise to further our mission of promoting camaraderie, esprit de corps, spirituality, and participation in tikkun olam – repairing the world.

We offer exciting and interesting educational programs, social events, and just plain fun.

Your dues and additional donations help to support Sisterhood programs and gifts to NVHC’s music program; Preschool specialty programs; summer camp scholarships; the Rosh Hashanah Oneg; B’nai Mitzvah, Confirmation, Conversions gifts, baby gifts; and more.
