Sisterhood 2013

Sisterhood is an active and caring group that encompasses women of all ages. Programs are held throughout the year, and rotate between mornings, afternoons and evenings to accommodate our members’ lifestyles and schedules. For more information, contact

Sisterhood operates a full service gift shop, The Gift Garden, which features a bar/bat mitzvah gift registry, personalized kippot, tallitot, ketubot, Passover wines, other Judaica, and snacks. Proceeds from The Gift Garden benefit the Temple. Volunteers operate the Gift Garden. We are always looking for additional volunteers.

This dynamic organization also sponsors a variety of Temple events and programs, including numerous Tzedakah projects, bimah baskets, college gifts, mitzvah corps, etc. Sisterhood’s activities generate significant funds for our congregation.

Sisterhood runs new and innovative programs every year.

Temple Sholom in Broomall is affiliated with Women of Reform Judaism and The Federation of Temple Sisterhoods
