Sisterhood

Sisterhood has three main goals:

Chesed (Kindness): Sisterhood helps provide chesed support to families and individuals in need. For example, we provide meals, clothing, and transportation. We also provide Chesed through the Rabbi’s Discretionary Fund, in which Rabbi Feldman gives tzedakah (charity) on an “as need basis.”

Programming: We bring women together for fun, social, and Jewish learning programs. We have had a very successful Jewish holiday programming series that included both inspirational Divrei Torah from our Rebbitzens combined with a craft or cooking activity.

Fundraising: Sisterhood raises money to help areas of the shul that are in need, and whose needs cannot be met by the annual shul budget. Examples include: decorating the bride’s preparation room, repairing siddurim (prayer books), updating the office computers, and financially supporting the preschool and NCSY (Teen Programming), Chesed, and the Rabbi’s Discretionary Fund. We also sponsor two Shabbat Kiddushes each year. Our two annual fundraising events are the Donor Telethon and the “Silver Tea” event that focuses on Chesed.

Cemetery Guardians
 

Cemetery Guardians operates as a separate entity within Congregation Beth Jacob. For your convenience we have a prepared booklet that explains in great detail the workings of the Guardians, the information on the Cemeteries, and the religious and civic laws and regarding cemeteries. There are many intricate religious and civil laws that govern an Orthodox Jewish cemetery and interment within them. This booklet addresses many of these issues. The Beth Jacob Rabbi is the final authority regarding all religious matters.

Driving Directions to Cemeteries

Items covered in the Cemetery Book:

• Halachic Practices
• Plot ownership and prices
• Monument and marker practices
• Floral policies

Beth Jacob has two cemetery locations that we take care of:

Green Wood Cemetery: all sites are either in use or reserved for family. There are no spaces for general use or sale.
Crest Lawn Cemetery: It is an active site and there is an availability of sites.

We hope that you will find the booklet very useful. You can contact the Beth Jacob office at (404) 633-0551 to have a booklet mailed to you or come by to pick one up.
