Sisterhood

WHO WE ARE

The Sisterhood of Temple Avodat Shalom strives to unite the women of our temple community through spirituality, education, fundraising, social events, community service and support of Reform Judaism.  We are a diverse group of women who draw strength from each other in our commitment toward Jewish ideals.

HOW WE SERVE OUR COMMUNITY

Sisterhood prepares the Friday night onegs, provides shiva and simcha meals to families, sends holiday gifts to our college students, supports our youth through Jewish experience and camp scholarships. 

Our gift shop is open on Sunday mornings.  Come in and browse!

We are proud members of the Women of Reform Judaism (WRJ)
