President's Greeting

Welcome to the Sisterhood of the Young Israel of West Hempstead!

The Young Israel of West Hempstead Sisterhood is the center of charitable, education and social activities for the women of the shul. We provide programming to the community with the goal of uniting our members and creating a sense of purpose, involvement and friendship. Over the course of the year our programming includes social events, educational events, we run the shul’s Mishloach Manot campaign and support the Simcha Connection, as well as supporting Shul projects and our Youth Department. We also provide community services including welcoming new members, providing shiva and baby meals, and coordinating elderly visits.

We welcome and encourage all female shul members to get involved in our exciting activities! Please email for more information or to sponsor any activities or programming.
