Temple Shalom Sisterhood

We are a group of women of all ages who join together for friendship, mitzvot, socializing, and learning and we’d like to meet you. Take a break from your busy life for some time just for you. In Sisterhood, you’ll find old and new friends at our many interesting and fun events listed below and at the right.



Discovering Miriam: Making Passover Your Own
events continue

Mouth-watering and educational events designed to enhance our upcoming Passover Seders - “Discovering Miriam: Making Passover Your Own” - resumes in March. The events are:

Women’s Seder – Sunday, March 25, 5-7 p.m. The Seder is for females 13 and over. The cost is $25 per person and free for Temple Shalom members, who have never attended our Women’s Seder before. All are welcome regardless of ability to pay. Sign-up deadline is March 20.
Join the women of Sisterhood to celebrate the perspective of Miriam and the other women who joined the Exodus. Don’t miss this special evening of ancient traditions reimagined for today!

Registration is open.

Discovering Miriam is sponsored by a generous grant from the Women of Reform Judaism.

New Rosh Chodesh groups start
Temple Shalom Sisterhood is creating new Rosh Chodesh groups for the first time in many years. Don't miss out on this unique opportunity to connect with other women!
Rosh Chodesh groups are small groups of women who meet at the beginning of each month over refreshments to discuss a wide variety of Jewish issues and topics and share holidays and life events together. Topics may include books, movies, art, food and cooking, current events, inspirational women and more.
No need to commit; just let us know if you are interested, and we'll be in touch with more information. For more information or questions, contact Jessica Davis.

Fall Fling

Thursday, Nov. 16, 2017

Ready for a Girls Night Out? The Fall Fling is your destination to meet up with your friends for wine, dinner and unique shopping for apparel, jewelry, cosmetics, home decor and gifts.




Sisterhood is committed to tikkun olam and our past presentations on domestic violence have earned us praise on the national Sisterhood stage.

Sisterhood fundraising supports our temple’s youth engagement, inclusion for children with learning differences in our education programs, and Families with Young Children (FwYC) initiatives. The community-wide Rummage Sale and your donations at the Fall Fling provided $16,000 last year.

For questions or if you have ideas for future events, contact Sisterhood Co-President Janet Altman or Sisterhood Co-President Jessica Davis.
