Or Shalom Sisterhood has much to offer -- learn how you can join our circle of friendship. We have a place waiting just for you!
Founded in 2005, Sisterhood is a vital part of Or Shalom's temple life. Our membership averages 100 women strong. We are a diverse group of women who are friends, partners, wives, mothers, grandmothers, aunts, and sisters. Many of us have careers, as well as work inside our homes. All women of Or Shalom and the surrounding Jewish community are welcome here.
You will find a warm, supportive and outgoing group of women when you join Sisterhood. For our newest Or Shalom members, Sisterhood can provide a way to meet new women and help you feel at home in your new temple surroundings. For all women of Or Shalom, Sisterhood may offer the path that helps you deepen your onnection to our temple and your Judaism.
There are many ways to participate in Sisterhood. Throughout the year, we offers programs, events, and opportunities that appeal to the "whole" woman. We strive to provide avenues that nourish our social/emotional, intellectual, and spiritual selves.
Social programming includes events such as our Summer Soirée, Bunco Bash, Sunday Morning Coffee, Ladies' Nights Out and our fabulous Mah Jongg Tournament. On an intellectual note, we are proud of our well-attended Book Babble which gathers every three months. Our reading selections vary from the humorous and satirical, to deeply thought provoking and educational. To nourish our souls and deepen our connection to Judaism, we worship together at our Sisterhood Shabbat, celebrate our freedom at our Women's Seder, and participate in Tikkun Olam (repairing the world) through our mitzvah and social awareness projects.
We encourage you to find a way to participate that is most comfortable for you. Sisterhood members are welcome to attend all events, or they can select only those which appeal to them. There is no right or wrong way to belong to Or Shalom Sisterhood. We value each and every one of the wonderful women that belong to our group! For those women looking to become more actively involved in Sisterhood, we enthusiastically welcome your help with chairing or helping at events, or even joining our Sisterhood Board!
Membership fees are $40/year. For more information regarding Or Shalom Sisterhood or to inquire about membership, please email us at email@example.com; we look forward to hearing from you! Remember, there is a place waiting for you in our circle of friendship!
