See you at Sisterhood!

 

In Sisterhood, women of all ages join together for friendship, mitzvot, socializing and learning - and we’d like to meet you at our in-person or Zoom events. Here, you’ll find old and new friends at our many interesting and fun events. Take a break from your busy life for some time just for you.

Sisterhood is committed to tikkun olam (repairing the world) and our past presentations on reproductive rights, mental health, and domestic violence have earned us praise on the national Sisterhood stage.

2022-23 Sisterhood Programs

This year, Sisterhood is honored to sponsor a new limited series: bagel and coffee social gatherings on three Sunday mornings for religious school parents, guardians and interested temple members. Watch for more information in the temple bulletin.

Sisterhood Socials will continue on Thursday nights in 2023, some by Zoom and some in-person this year. We always start by catching up with each other and end with a short meditation. In between, we laugh some and we learn some. We’re looking forward to a cooking demo with Deborah Altman of Cook Colorful, a book/tv-series discussion based on Roar by ‎Cecelia Ahern, a cooking class, and more. To suggest a new idea for a Social, please contact Kim Freedman at freedman.kim@gmail.com.

 

Cross Country Skiing and Snowshoeing: Please join us on February 5, from 1pm to 3pm for a flurry of winter fun at Weston Ski Track and hot cocoa apres ski.  All temple members and skill levels welcome; learn from experienced cross country skiers.  Check out the rates for passes and rentals.  Event organized by Sisterhood. Registration required by January 26.

 

 

 

 

Preparing for the Seder: On February 12, let’s meet in Room 101 from 10:15 to 11: 45.  Then, we’ll offer tips for making a seder including suggestions for the best stores to purchase Passover items, recipes, and also take-out options.  Download a copy of the presentation and recipes here.  This session, sponsored by Sisterhood, is the second in the three-part “Passover Toolkit series”.  Register here.)
