Be a part of Sisterhood.
The Olam Tikvah Sisterhood is a group of diverse women welcoming and bonding with other women through programming and social activities. We strengthen our synagogue and the community through support and outreach, enhance Jewish education for ourselves and our families and uphold, share, and create traditions.
Why join Sisterhood? Through the extraordinary efforts of our members, Sisterhood was able to donate approximately $50,000 last year to worthy causes within OT, the greater Jewish community, and our local community. We have enjoyed social events and outings, expanded our horizons through educational events, laughed, cried, dined, and davened together, and made lasting friendships. Please join us as we continue these endeavors.

Casseroles for SOME. It only takes a few brief minutes to fill an empty tummy with a hearty and healthy meal. For the past 20 years, Sisterhood has supported the casserole delivery to So Others May Eat (SOME), an interfaith, community-based organization that helps our local poor and homeless. The tuna casseroles OT members provide each month help meet the daily needs of the people SOME serves. If you are interested in helping to make casseroles at OT, please contact Leona Shoon in the OT Office. The group normally meets on Mondays at 9:00am in the OT kitchen. For the recipe and delivery dates click here.
Mitzvah Meals, help the OT community at large with the preparation of Mitzvah Meals in the OT kitchen. For more information and scheduling details, please contact Diane Fertman.
Interests to Share?
Do you have a special interest you would like to share with your Sisterhood 'Sisters'? We are looking to bring together women interested in a variety of activities, i.e. genealogy, birdwatching, games, computers, beading, crafts, or cooking. Is there anything you know a little more about that you want to share with a small group? If so, please contact Ronnie Rodriguez at firstname.lastname@example.org. You do not need to be an expert in a particular area, just have a desire to share your hobby or interest with other women.
