We support our Sisterhood by providing our energy and our funds to promote the ideals of Judaism and to provide meaningful programming for the Temple Oheb Shalom community. We are a very active, vibrant group of women who support Temple in many ways.
Our meetings are held on the first Monday of the month at 11:30 am. All meetings include lunch and some form of entertainment or enlightenment. We have had musical programs, make-up makeovers, interesting speakers, health issues and jewelry sales. There is also a Day of Games in February at which time we have a catered brown bag lunch and we either play cards, Mah Jongg or Bingo with prizes.
A significant purpose of Sisterhood, besides social activity, is supporting the many needs of the Temple. Some of the things we have purchased for Temple include: Breast Plate for the new Torah; new robes for the Rabbis and Cantor; decorations for the Sukkah; annual Camp Scholarships for our Religious School students; computers and other equipment for the Religious School; chairs and tables for the Conference Room; the organ in the Chapel; the Brides Chuppah; donations to the Capital Campaign; supplies for Rosh Hodesh, equipment for the administrative offices, etc.
As you can see, the sisterhood, empowered by you, our members, continually and cheerfully reach out where needed.
