A place for Jewish women to connect, learn, and contribute

Our name says it all: We are a true sisterhood. Women who start as strangers, become friends, and over time—through shared experiences and shared values—build bonds that make us feel like sisters. 

Congregation Ohev Shalom’s Sisterhood is part of the Women’s League of Conservative Judaism, the largest synagogue-based women’s organization. We are a diverse, committed, caring group. Sometimes we get together for service projects for Ohev Shalom and the larger community, and other times we gather to learn and grow. And sometimes we just want to be social. We welcome everyone from early careerists and new moms to those who are navigating middle age, retirement, and senior discounts with style and strength.

Our mission is to engage, strengthen, and embrace women of all ages through programs and community service to support our synagogue and the greater community.  


Why Sisterhood Is Worth Your Time


We tailor our programming to the needs and interests of our members:

  • Learning Experiences: workshops, lectures, study groups
  • Growing Experiences: book clubs, cooking classes, theater outings
  • Sharing Experiences: social action projects and community service
  • Jewish Experiences: support of synagogue programs, Sisterhood Shabbat 

Your membership at Ohev Shalom will be greatly enhanced:   

  • Develop lifelong friendships
  • Engage in fabulous and fun social events
  • Learn in a caring environment
  • Go from just belonging to Ohev Shalom to being a true participant in synagogue life  

Opportunities to become involved can easily match your preferences. Jump in with both feet and experience everything that Sisterhood has available. Or, go slower and take a class or two, attend an event, experience a social action project…it’s all up to you!  

We truly look forward to meeting you and engaging with you!

Warmest regards,

Sandi Saft and Es Cohen

Dear Ohev Sisters,

B’Yachad, together we are getting through COVID.  Five seminaries and students have had a most difficult year.  They need our financial support to educate the future leaders of conservative Judaism..

We know that together (B’Yachad) Ohev Shalom women can make it happen.

To those of you who have already made your pledge, we say Todah rabah.  To those of you who have pledged in the past, please do it again.  If you have never pledged, please do it now.  Any amount would be greatly appreciated.   Please see the flyer attached, and together we will make it happen

Thank you in advance,
Susan Hochstadt, Susie Stone, Marge Smith
