Sisterhood

Dix Hills Jewish Center Sisterhood 
is a vital part of our Jewish community…

What is Sisterhood?

Sisterhood is the organization of the women of the Congregation who band together in friendship for programs to benefit the Temple and the community, for social activities, for study, and, above all, for the growth of the individual so that each may find an opportunity to fulfill her potential as a person and as a Jewish woman. Sisterhood provides the arena for the individual to expand and grow in a Jewish atmosphere.

SisterHood Picture of four.Why Sisterhood?

Within the structure of the Congregation, Sisterhood is the collective presence, voice, and strength of women. It is the place where women can meet and work together for the benefit of the Congregation. Here, women can initiate and develop projects in which they are interested. As an organization, Sisterhood can initiate cooperative programs with other groups.

 

Why do you need Sisterhood? 


Sisterhood provides a collective identity for the women of the Congregation. Sisterhood also provides an outlet for the creative energy, talent, and leadership potential for the individual Jewish woman.

Sisterhood will give you a worldwide identity too, through its affiliation with the Women's League for Conservative Judaism, a federation of more than 600 Sisterhoods with 100,000 members throughout the United States, Canada, and overseas.

What does Sisterhood do?


Sisterhood can do whatever its members feel would be valuable to them, their families, their congregations, their communities. It's all up to you.

Why does Sisterhood need you?

Sisterhood needs the support of all the women of the Congregation. All of us, whether mother, daughter, sister, aunt, or wives who are members of DHJC are needed as members of its Sisterhood. All of us, whether or not we perceive ourselves as having extra time, whether or not we enjoy all of Sisterhood's activities or projects, whether or not we have children, whether or not we attend services regularly, are needed as members of Sisterhood.

As the Jewish New Year begins let us reflect on our Jewish identity and discover how you can become more involved. Our Temple's Sisterhood is a wonderful organization that allows us to make a difference in our community, develop life-long friendships and support our Synagogue in many ways. Whether you've been a member for years, are a new member, or are considering joining, come to our meetings, join a committee, participate in a program, make new friends and spend time with old ones. We're looking forward to a dynamic year!

 

Best wishes for a year filled with love, peace, health and happiness -- L'shanah Tovah.

Susie Fishbein Cooking Class 

On Feb. 26th, we welcomed Susie Fishbein back for her second event at the DHJC. This time, Susie prepared a delicious meal for Passover including tricolor matzoh ball soup, pistachio crusted salmon over smashed sweet potatoes with vanilla sauce, and a duo of truffles. Everything tasted great and all who attended enjoyed the evening! We are looking forward to having her back again soon!

Welcome to the Dix Hills Jewish Center

Welcome to the Dix Hills Jewish Center, a Conservative Congregation, celebrating 50 years as a beacon of dynamic Judaism in Dix Hills. We are a traditional egalitarian synagogue committed to the reality that all Jews are full partners in the beauty of Jewish life and that all Jews are given an equal role in all rituals. The Dix Hills Jewish Center is an engaging, vibrant congregation. We are excited about the growth in our synagogue, and the wonderful growth of the Jewish community of Dix Hills, Commack and the neighboring communities. We are a community committed to learning, to supporting each other, and to being a warm and welcoming place for all who participate. Welcome to the Dix Hills Jewish Center.

Service & Minyan times located at the bottom of the page.

If you are interested in attending any of our programs please check the Calendar in Upcoming Events. Children's programming is also available.


In Case Of........

Simchas

For joyous occassions in your life, please share your naches with the Rabbi. Inform the Rabbi about births, engagements, weddings and other noteworthy moments in the life of your family. The Rabbi will arrange for baby namings, provide information regarding a mohel ( for infant boys), coordinate a pidyon ha-ben (the redemption ceremony for firstborn males), schedule an aufruf (to celebrate a forthcoming marriage), weddings and bring the richness of Jewish traditions and mitzvoth into your simcha(email rabbi or call 631-499-6644).

Illness

In case of illness and/or hospitalization, please notify the Rabbi at 631-499-6644 (24/6 - on Shabbat, see below for further emergency instructions)

Death

Even before making funeral arrangements notify Rabbi Buechler at the synagogue office at 631-499-6644 (after office hours press #3 for the emergency numbers). Rabbi Buechler will assist and guide you in making the appropriate arrangements for the funeral. In the event that you cannot reach the Rabbi, contact the Jewish funeral home and begin to make your arrangements. PLEASE, if Rabbi Buechler is going to officiate at the funeral, do not finalize the funeral time until the Rabbi has contacted you. At most this will be a few hours. In the event that Rabbi Buechler is on vacation, Cantor Hevenstone is available and other local Conservative Rabbis are on call. Their names can be obtained by calling the synagogue office, an officer of the synagogue or the Ritual Chairman. It is also appropriate to contact Rabbi Buechler whenever tragedy or trauma occurs. On Shabbat and Yomtov the Rabbi does not use the telephone. Therefore, you can convey information to him on these days at the synagogue during scheduled service times, by calling him immediately after Shabbat or Yomtov or by going to his residence.
