TBO SISTERHOOD

THE HEART OF THE TEMPLE BEATS IN ITS WOMEN

TBO Sisterhood was established over 60 years ago. Each year the women of Temple Beth Ohr support the Temple through innovative programming, social events, and creating a loving environment for the children. Our members have the opportunity to take on leadership roles and create a social network that transfers to personal and professional lives. TBO Sisterhood is an affiliate of the WRJ, Women of Reform Judaism.

Women of Reform Judaism strengthens the voice of women worldwide and empowers them to create caring communities, nurture congregations, cultivate personal and spiritual growth, and advocate for and promote progressive Jewish values.

Throughout the years, Sisterhood has provided scholarships that enable our students to attend Jewish camps, visit Washington, D.C. for the L’Taken Conference, and experience a true Jewish community by celebrating holidays and celebrations. Our B’nai Mitzvot and Confirmation students receive meaningful gifts from Sisterhood. TBO’s Judica Gift Shop is also managed by the Sisterhood.

Join us on the 2nd Wednesday of each month at 7pm for our Sisterhood Program.  Email sisterhood@tbolm.org for the Zoom link. Online application available by clicking on the blue button below.
