Congregation Or Shalom’s Sisterhood Mission is to bring the women of our synagogue together to support our community, serve our synagogue, and enrich our lives through social events, educational and spiritual programs, fundraising, and community service.  Sisterhood is affiliated with The Women’s League for Conservative Judaism in the Mid-Atlantic Region.


Mindy Bernstein,

Sisterhood President

Thanks to all who helped bake and prepare the desserts for our Rosh Hashana buffet– Julie Miller, Beth Zatuchni, and Mindy Markovitz.  It was easier than I expected to make the delicious apple strudel and it was a big hit.

Our Sisterhood Opening Dinner is in the Sukkah on

Wednesday, October 4 at 6:30.

It is a dairy potluck so please rsvp to me to let me know what you will bring.

We have a Yoga class with Lisa at 10 AM on the 24th.

This is a great way to start out the new year.

I look forward to seeing you all at the Opening Dinner.
