KJ SISTERHOOD: How We Began

The KJ Sisterhood was started by Mrs. Gertrude Lookstein, of blessed memory. She said in an interview, just two months before her passing, that “KJ needed someone to pull it together. It needed socialization and so I began by starting the Sisterhood. I also started our women preparing and caring for Shiva houses….I was part of a community whether for solace or to lend a hand here or there...”

Many years later, the Sisterhood inaugurated an annual Gertrude Lookstein Award, whose first recipient was her daughter-in-law, Audrey Lookstein.  It was our way of honoring Mrs. Lookstein’s memory and emphasizing the important contributions of the KJ Sisterhood.
