Congregation Shir Shalom Sisterhood

The women’s voice of Congregation Shir Shalom is our dynamic Sisterhood. We are involved in activities that enrich our congregation and community, and provide educational and social opportunities that enhance the lives of our membership.

The women who participate  range from young moms to retirees. Everyone gives perspective and support to their fellow members in and around our community. They have become our extended family.

We need your help in many ways. Just remember that Sisterhood is only as strong as its members. We would love to hear from you and look forward to working with you to make this a great year!
