In construction, sistering means adding extra material for additional strength.


At Sha'are Shalom our Sisterhood works similarly. The more of us there are, working together through our community bonds, the stronger we all become.


We hope you'll join us as we plan for Sisterhood events in the coming year. We're excited to hear from you and have you get involved!

A Look Ahead


We had some great ideas come out of the survey and brainstorming sessions we've had. We've got plans in the works to hopefully accommodate all schedules and interests!

Here's just a glimpse of what's ahead for Sisterhood!

First Wednesday of each month - Coffee/Drinks - alternating between 10:00am coffee and 7:00pm drinks monthly.  We'll rotate through a variety of local coffee shops and drinks and/ dessert places.

Quarterly Dinners Out: We'll pick a restaurant and enjoy an evening out!

Quarterly Pot Lucks: Seasonal (Winter/Spring/Summer/Fall) potlucks to be held either at a host's home or the synagogue social hall

Quarterly Art Nights: Crafting get togethers at places such as The Clay and Metal Loft, AR Workshop, and hopefully even an art night in the Sukkah!  


As we get past summer and the High Holidays/start of school we've also got plans for a group 5K, game nights, lunch and learns, social action projects, and other fun gatherings. If you have an idea for an event, please share!  Excited for all the fun ahead!

Thanks to all who came out to have some fun with art in the sukkah! It was still too wet so we ended up in the social hall, but a good time was had by all!
