…is a vital group of women supportimg the financial, social, and educational activities of the synagogue.
Education of ourselves and our children is of course a priority. We find ourselves in constant communication with the religious school and try to respond to their needs proactively.
In keeping with the traditional belief that education never ends, the Sisterhood endeavors to provide programming for our members on topics that are of current and traditional interest to our members.>As a fundraising arm of the synagogue, we are involved in making gift packages (shalach manot) at Purim, organizing a fun Spring fundraiser, running an incredible flea market, and a host of other activities.
Through events as varied as book readings, cooking demonstrations, and dynamic speaker presentations, the women of Or Shalom provide a supportive network within the greater community. We are a circle of women with many varied interests, united in our Jewishness, and dedicated to making a house of worship in our home.
New members of Or Shalom are given a year’s free membership in the Sisterhood. We welcome you, your ideas, and your enthusiasm.
