Sisterhood TSS.jpg

Several years ago, the Temple Shir Shalom Sisterhood was a typical group of women who took care of the kitchen, made hamentaschen, had a gift shop, had monthly meetings, had by-laws, had dues, had officers, and was a strong right arm of the Temple.


Alas, those who had been the leadership, advisor, and decision maker of the organization, decided that they were tired and were ready to put the Sisterhood to rest. Bravely, a few members of the Temple decided to form a steering committee, and try something new, and The New Sisterhood became a group, but not like your mother’s Sisterhood. 


Today, Sisterhood has found its strength and creativity in the women of the congregation, and they seek to create connections, foster friendships, and enrich the spiritual lives of all Temple members who identify as women.


It is open to women in the community. There are no by-laws, officers, gift shop, monthly meetings or dues! Since we don’t require membership dues, we do encourage donations to support our activities. You can DONATE online or contact us via email.


Every year we have several events, such as Be Hipp at the Hipp, where we attend a play and then all go out for dinner. We have an annual Sisterhood Shabbat. We have guest speakers, make your own scarf night, monthly Bunco, co-sponsor Chanukah party with Religious School, co-sponsor a program with social action, and yes, we do make hamentaschen.


We would love to have you join our Sisterhood.  If you have questions, please contact Marcia Storch.

The New TSS Sisterhood is built on the strength and history of the women in our congregation. This year we are trying something a little different - we are not a membership organization - every woman of TSS is automatically a member. Welcome aboard! 


We are planning meaningful and inspiring activities for our wonderful temple. Our goal is to create connections, make new friends and build our temple community. We are loosely organized with a Steering Committee, but everyone is invited to share ideas and suggestions. We encourage donations to help support our activities. You can donate online at
