Sisterhood works to build friendship and community for its members and for the congregation as a whole. Our programs include Judaic events, education events, social events and fun events. We have continued our commitment to Har Shalom by donating the beautiful stained glass in the Burke Sanctuary, donating major funds for the Sherman ECC’s “greening” and by raising money to update the Har Shalom kitchen and replace major appliances as needed.

Our mission in Sisterhood is to promote and perpetuate Conservative/Marsoti Judaism by modeling Jewish living and values. Our commitment to the health and well-being of our community at large is demonstrated in many of our programs and committee endeavours.  We encourage you to learn about who we are and what we do by visiting our or our events and outreach activities.
