Sisterhood Retreat 2014

Cherish the Past, Challenge the Future

Mission Statement

We, the women of Baltimore Hebrew Congregation,
Believe strongly in the core Jewish values of caring, giving and learning. With
Hard work, friendship and compassion, we strive to support each other, our
Congregational family, our community and Reform Judaism.



Women of Baltimore Hebrew Congregation (Women of BHC) We, the Women of Baltimore Hebrew Congregation, have a long history of service to our synagogue, the Jewish community here and abroad and people in need wherever they may be. Founded in 1890 as The Ladies Auxiliary of the Madison Avenue Temple, renamed Baltimore Hebrew Congregation Sisterhood in 1913, now known as the Women of BHC, we welcome women of any age, ethnicity, or synagogue affiliation to join us in social, educational and outreach activities that enhance our connections to one another, to the congregation and to the worldwide Jewish community.

Our annual dues and other fundraisers have paid for the “quiet room” in the Sanctuary, maintenance of the synagogue kitchen, decoration of the synagogue sukkah, involvement in support of our schools and students, donations to ongoing and emergency causes, and membership and participation in the activities of other organizations that serve the larger community.

While some of our activities moved to a virtual presentation during the Covid-19 pandemic — most notably our sponsorship of Wednesday afternoon programming via Zoom — our committees have worked toward resumption of such events as our historic Interfaith Institute, Holiday Boutique and Shred Event, plus luncheons, lectures and other activities aimed at personal and social growth.
