Our Mission

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.

What is OST’s Sisterhood?

OST Sisterhood is a community of welcoming women from all walks of life who meet for spiritual, educational, and social growth through Judaism. Our diverse members are all ages and come from varying backgrounds, allowing us to join together to serve the needs of our congregation and community, while cultivating life-long friendships.
