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, we have a new name and The Sisterhood has found its strength and creativity in the women of the congregation. They seek to create connections, foster friendships, and enrich the spiritual lives of all Temple members who identify as women.
We are 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.
Unfortunately, due to Covid this past year, our activities were few. But in the past we had 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 had guest speakers, make your own scarf night, monthly Bunco, co-sponsored Chanukah party with Religious School, co-sponsored a program with social action, and hopefully this Purim we will make hamentaschen!
