Mission Statement

Sisterhood’s mission is to foster the highest ideals of Judaism, to promote closer community among its members, and to further the religious, social and educational activities of Ohef Sholom Temple.


Our OST Sisterhood is a community of women who meet for spiritual, educational, and social growth with Judaism as our common bond. Our members are strong women from all walks of life, varying backgrounds and all ages. We join together to do more than each one can do alone. We are committed to serving the needs of our diverse membership and invite your participation and suggestions.

OST Sisterhood is a vital part of congregational life at OST and is involved in many Temple events throughout the year. We coordinate the Friday night Oneg Shabbats, participate in an interfaith Thanksgiving worship, and host the annual Chanukah Dinner. The cold of January brings the warmth of a memorable Sisterhood Shabbat Service. We meet for A Jewish Book Club twice each year and coordinate a Women’s retreat. We support the Men’s Club Shabbat, a Purim bake sale supporting OSTY, and more. Your Sisterhood sponsors and participates in many other programs and events through the year-see fliers below about some recent activities. Check the Temple “pOST” bulletin and As The Temple Turns for news of upcoming Sisterhood activities.

Sisterhood has monthly meetings where we plan our programs and build friendships while helping the Temple. Please join us-all are welcome to attend! Membership in Sisterhood will reward you with a closer feeling of community at OST where you may develop life-long friendships. We are always happy to have women of OST join by paying the $40 annual membership dues and are even happier to have you participate and get involved! You don’t need to be a member to check us out by coming to meetings and activities.

Sisterhood: A wonderful way to be together to support OST and turn new friends into old friends.
