Har Sinai Sisterhood embodies the heart and soul of our Temple.  Through the bonds of “sisterhood,” we bring women together as a core to strengthen our Jewish identity.  At this time, our primary goal is to generate a strong and spiritual community where you feel welcomed, empowered, and connected to our Temple, to women in our Sisterhood, and to Judaism.

Our events and purposes are multifold.  We support the activities and goals of the Temple and the Jewish people, as we develop spiritually, intellectually, culturally, and socially.  Most of all, we have fun as we learn and grow together!

During our “Red Tents on Baldpate Mountain,” we celebrate Shabbat on a mountain top. At our “Rosh Chodesh” events, we discuss books and Torah, and enjoy cultural activities.  Through our yearly “Retreats” and “Women’s  Seders,” we renew and rejoice together.  Plus, through fundraising and social action activities, we support and give back to our community.

Join us, as we connect, celebrate, worship, and party together!
