Tikkun Olam

Sisterhood is committed to tikkun olam ("repairing the world"), and our past presentations on mental health and domestic violence have earned us praise on the national Sisterhood stage. Grants from Women of Reform Judaism (WRJ) have supported speakers including Hadassah Margolis, LICSW , who spoke this fall on Spirituality and Mental Health.

In conjunction with Women in Reform Judaism ​​​​​and Temple Shalom’s Tzedek Task Force, Sisterhood will lead our congregation in advocacy for reproductive justice.
