Sisterhood

So what is Sisterhood about?

It's about making Hamentashen for Purim and knitting afghans for the needy on Mitzvah day; holding an annual Sisterhood Shabbat, encouraging women to participate in all aspects of the Shabbat service; coordinating a visiting scholar to speak about women's issues during kiddush; learning and laughing together as we soul-search during Rosh Chodesh and more. Come make lasting friendships as we support our Or Atid community and the community in which we live.
