Our synagogue was founded by a group of women back in 1917, and we are carrying on the tradition of strong, intelligent women making a dynamic difference in the community. We are dedicated to enriching the Free Synagogue with events and opportunities, as well as reaching out and helping the Queens, NYC, and world communities through charity and volunteering. We have a full calendar of events and special programs, including food drives to distribute food to those in need, gathering coats to help keep New Yorkers warm in conjunction with the New York Cares coat drive, and gathering eyeglasses for needy people around the world. Events including our popular pain socials, and community events such as hosting the Flushing Stop & Swap also bring a great turnout. We sponsor an active book club, and plan to hold events throughout the year, such as guest speakers, congregational get-togethers, and community gatherings.
Our sisterhood is proud to be a part of the WRJ.
The Next Sisterhood Meeting Will Be Held July 22nd At 1:00pm in the Board Room in the Mann Mansion
