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, educational and social activities for the women of the shul. Our programs strive to unite the diverse women of our community by creating a sense of purpose, involvement and friendship. The Sisterhood performs many of the tasks necessary to maintain our shul’s status as the thriving center of religious life in our community. We run a wide variety of programs, events and activities providing an opportunity for women to learn and socialize.

We encourage all female members to become involved with our many excellent programs.  Volunteers are always needed and new ideas are always welcome. 

Please don't hesitate to contact us by phone or via email at
