Sisterhood Banner

Temple Adas Shalom Sisterhood is a woman’s organization which strives to help women bond together, learn from one another, and share experiences that enable themselves and their families to grow and lead more fulfilling Jewish lives.

Its membership is made up of a diverse group of women of varied ages, education, and religious observance who share a common goal; making Temple Adas Shalom a better place. Sisterhood is a community in which all women connect.

The primary objective of our Temple Sisterhood is to provide an agenda of education and social networking activities that meet the needs of the women of the congregation. We achieve this by undertaking specific projects to enhance and enrich the life of the congregation. These projects include but are not limited to: maintaining the Judaica Gift Shop; providing gifts for Bar/Bat Mitzvah students; providing Bima Flowers for the High Holidays; holiday treats for Simchat Torah and Purim, annual Sisterhood Dinner; holiday gift packages to our College students and ongoing fundraising projects that benefit the congregation, including ongoing fundraising for the Kehillah MAGNET Religious School and synagogue General Fund.

We encourage you to join Sisterhood and be part of a dynamic, vital part of our synagogue. Somewhere among our activities is a place just right for you. Come socialize with warm and caring women and do something nice for yourself. Enjoy the friendship and just have fun with the women of the sisterhood!
