Welcome to Our North Suburban Beth El Sisterhood Gift Shop!

Everything Passover – Your One Stop Shop!

There are few Jewish holidays that come wrapped with as many memories as Passover. The frenzied preparation, the special recipes, the seder table stretching way beyond the room’s boundaries, the aunts, uncles, cousins, and friends who fill the house.

With Erev Pesach on March 30, the countdown begins – there is so much to do and so little time!  We encourage you to take a deep breath and then grab onto the singular opportunity to create those Passover memories for your family and friends. We’re ready to help you.  We have a wide variety of unique Judaica to help revitalize your seder traditions, plus fun children’s items to entertain and educate.

From haggadot, handcrafted seder plates, matzo boxes, afikomen bags and Jumpin’ Frogs to engraved Miriam Cups and contemporary Elijah Cups. We’re your one-stop Passover resource!  Our gift shop hours are: Sundays, 9:00am to 1:00pm; Tuesdays, 10:00am to noon.  To help you prepare for Passover, we are adding some

Upcoming Event

A Special Invitation from The Sisterhood Gift Shop Co-Chairs

Come and Meet Kim Bloomberg, Jewelry Artisan
Sunday, April 29, 2018
11:00 am – 1:00 pm  – The Kol Ami Rotunda

This is a first in a series of programs presenting some of the artisans whose work we feature in our gift shop. Kim’s designs are carefully constructed with an “artful balance” in mind,  blending vintage and modern styles with harmony of scale and color.

Magnificent stones, carefully selected, are the centerpieces of her work. The result — timeless treasures!

Along with a display of her stunning jewelry, Kim will share what inspired the creative expression reflected in her work.  It’s a moving story that traces back generations to her grandmother and her family who were caught up in the upheaval of World II, Auschwitz, and the Lodz Ghetto. We are excited to have you meet this extremely talented artisan.  A limited selection of Kim’s work is currently on display in the gift shop and is available for purchase.

We hope you can join us on April 29! Light refreshments will be served. RSVP to Sulie Holt at
