The Temple Chayai Shalom Sisterhood was formed in 2003 as a way for adult female members of the congregation to socialize with each other. Through the years, we have expanded to social, spiritual, and educational events. Sisterhood goal is to ensure our membership is diverse and is open to all women who are members of the congregation, you do not need to be of the Jewish faith to join. It is a great place to meet new people and greet old friends.

We enjoy many activities both in and out of the temple. Here is a sample of what Sisterhood members can experience throughout the year:

  • Fall: • paid up dinner • joint sisterhood/brotherhood event • community Break Fast • Soup in the Sukkah
  • Winter: • cooking classes • bingo/game night • Purim Baskets
  • Spring: • women’s Seder • craft night • H.S. Senior Scholarship • Sisterhood Shabbat Service

Sisterhood is also very involved in the life of the temple community through fundraising as well as its extended community. Together with brotherhood, we provide Shiva meals to those with a loss in their immediate family and in 2017/2018 we worked with “support the girls” to provide essentials for homeless women and girls. Sisterhood also celebrates TCS’s children annually with B’nai Mitzvah & Confirmation Gifts and a senior send-off scholarship, enhancing their future religious and spiritual lives.

The first year a woman belongs to the congregation, membership is free in Sisterhood. There is also an active Life Membership group. Contact us at to find out more!
