Congregation Shaarey Tphiloh
In the Congregation Shaarey Tphiloh Sisterhood 1945 annual report, president Mrs. Louis R. Berenson wrote, "every woman likes a lovely home -- she takes pride in it -- she wants to show it to her family and her friends.
"That is the way we, the Sisterhood, feel about our synagogue. We want it to be the neatest, the most presentable, the nicest."
The Sisterhood raises money for the synagogue and for community projects, supports various synagogue activities and, as another report stated, "Whenever and wherever we are called, Sisterhood is ready and willing to lend a hand."
