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 such as Movie Night, Fall Fling, Chanukah candle-making, Mom’s Coffees, Women’s Seder, Salon, Rummage Sale, and our Annual Member Dinner.

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 religious school, 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.
