Ladies Concordia Society (LCS)
Organized on December 23, 1872, Ladies Concordia Society is one of the oldest active Sisterhoods in the country. Our focus is to cultivate the religious, educational and civic interests of its members; to promote fellowship; to further the needs and focus of the congregation; to advance the program and purpose of the Women of Reform Judaism. As an associate member of this national organization, our LCS Sisterhood follows a fiscal year from July 1 thru June 30, having election of officers in the month of May and installation of officers in June. The entire list of newly elected officers and the committee chairs will be mailed to each Temple family in June, to be inserted in the current Temple Directory. Ladies Concordia Society takes pride in offering a full range of programs for our members from September through June, varying monthly program times from a weekday schedule to some evenings and weekend times as well. We hope this will allow for more participation in activities as your schedules permit. Sisterhood is actively involved in raising funds throughout the year to help meet the needs of our Temple and Religious School. We participate in many community projects including Meals on Wheels and Vision Screening (the testing of students in New Hanover County).
Our Ambitious Agenda includes:
- Board Meeting each month
- Membership programs each month
- Organizing Friday night Onegs and Break-the-Fast
- Monthly Book Club
- Monthly Knitting Circle
- Fund-raising to assist the Temple and Religious School
- Planning 2nd Night Seder and the Chanukah Party
- Operating the Judaica Gift Shop at 922 Market St. and on-line Judaica Beautiful
- Providing gifts to Bar/Bat Mitzvah and Confirmation Students
- Social activities such as dining out
