“A sister is a gift to the heart, a friend to the spirit, a golden thread to the meaning of life.” – Isadora James

This is an exciting time for the TAS Sisterhood, and we are hopeful that you will be an integral part of that journey!  This year is a year of change, it is time to both honor our traditional events and expand our impact at Temple Adas Shalom and throughout our community. 
TAS Sisterhood is an inclusive organization for all women affiliated with Temple Adas Shalom. It brings with it lifelong friendships and spiritual journeys. It brings education and fun. It brings social justice and social action. It brings women together in a way that bonds us for the happiest times, the saddest times, and for all the times in between. It brings us sisters.
Our Sisterhood is committed to our members, our temple and our greater community. We achieve our goals by enriching the lives of our congregation and provide a comfortable place for our members to find personal and spiritual growth, charitable endeavors, social events, and educational opportunities.
The TAS Sisterhood's impact can be found in every corner of Temple Adas Shalom. Our Sisterhood provides an outstanding selection of Judaica in our Sisterhood Gift Shop, gifts for Bar & Bat Mitzvah students, holiday treats for Simchat Torah and Purim, holiday gift packages for our college students, and donations that benefit the congregation, the Kehillah MAGNET religious School, and the HJC Early Learning Center. We join together for Sisterhood Dinners & Events on a monthly basis or more. We are active, we are growing, and we are ready for you to join because this is not your Bubbe's Sisterhood!
