Temple Or Elohim's Sisterhood is actively dedicated to supporting the spirituality of women, to further the highest ideals of its members and work for the betterment of the temple. As the key fundraising arm of the temple, Sisterhood sponsors such events as Shopper's Day, Sisterhood Shabbat, as well as the Sisterhood Judaica boutique showcase.

Familyhood activities/events/programs can be attended by parents, caregivers, grandparents and anyone else who may be interested in exploring Jewish experiences and creating a connection with other area families anchored by Temple Or Elohim.
