Sisterhood                                                                     

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 just plain fun events.  Each year we raise funds which are donated back to the Congregation through our amazing Purim Basket project and our annual New To You Sale.  Our members also give a large donation to the Women’s League Torah Fund Campaign, which supports the education of our Conservative Jewish leaders at 5 seminaries worldwide.      

Sisterhood makes donations to the Sherman Early Childhood Center, the Religious School, and the Har Shalom Youth Department.  We provide Purim Baskets to Jewish members of local nursing homes, and to every member of the Har Shalom staff.  Every B’nai Mitzvah child receives a gift from the Sisterhood, as do the members of the Confirmation Class.  All of the children in our school receive treats for the major Jewish holidays.  Sisterhood organizes several Senior Bingo game days for residents of senior homes in our community.  Through our Bikkur Holim project, we deliver meals to our congregants who are facing illnesses and surgery.

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.
