The OWHC Sisterhood exists to facilitate, encourage and support Women’s involvement and furtherance of education at our Synagogue and in the community at large as well as providing funds and support to other parts of OWHC and outside organizations.

Sisterhood provides a forum for new and existing members to meet women and become more connected through common interests.  Our intent is to foster community and friendship throughout the women of our temple.


Funds which are  derived from dues and fund raising, are used for subsidizing Adult Education, as well as providing educational materials for the Religious School and other Synagogue needs and programs.  The Sisterhood provides gifts for the Bar/Bat Mitzvah Students and Bimah Flowers and sponsors Kiddushs when needed.


Programs, fundraisers and events include: Book Club, Jewish New Years Card Orders, Purim Baskets, Passover Candy Sale, Rummage Sale, Sisterhood Shabbat and holiday educational programming throughout the year.  


There are many opportunities for women to take part and help out at our Sisterhood events and programs.  We are always looking for feedback, new ideas and suggestions. We  hope to see our Sisterhood continue to support and increase it’s involvement in the life of our congregation and Synagogue. We need your help to do this.  The current board’s terms are ending in the Spring and we look forward to working with some new committee chairs who are interested in volunteering their time with some of the programs above.


Please contact our Presidents sisterhood@owhcong.org or leave a note in the Sisterhood box to let us know if we can count on you and what you would like to do.
