Faith, Family, Friends….Loyalty of Sisters
The Or Chadash Sisterhood of the Sephardic Temple Tiffereth Israel, is a group of Jewish women who gather to promote Jewish vales and traditions, through a wide range of stimulating programs, both social and educational, providing personal enrichment and growth, in a warm and inviting environment.
The Or Chadash Sisterhood offers an array of activities and special events open to all members of the community. Our activities include speakers on a variety of current topics, a book club that meets every two months, special presentations such as The Jewish Women’s Theater, cooking lessons in our Sisterhood kitchen featuring the Sephardic specialties of Greece, Turkey, Egypt, Morocco and Iran, and a cookbook club devoted to sharing recopies and creating a new Sephardic cookbook.
Or Chadash Story:
As members of Sephardic Temple Tifereth Israel, we invite you to join our Temple Sisterhood. For years, our Temple Sisterhood has been a place for socializing and making friends, while serving our synagogue and the greater community. The funds raised by our programs have gone to support an array of worthwhile causes in our community.
In Spring 2012, we started off a new branch of Sisterhood, called Or Chadash (meaning New Light), geared towards the new generation of our women. Our mission is to promote Jewish values and traditions through a wide range of stimulating programs, both social and educational, providing personal enrichment and growth, in a warm and inviting environment.
There was a delightful afternoon tea held in May to celebrate our birth and welcome new members. Within a few short weeks, we kicked off our weekly Yoga & Zumba classes in the beautiful Labe Garden, started a popular Book Club, held a well-received comedy night event at the Laugh Factory, continued the well-loved College Outreach Program, had a delicious luncheon in the Sukkah and a Channukah luncheon in the Levy Hall, invited fascinating speakers & creative chefs for our Speaker and Cooking series, helped organize Tikkun Olam and community service projects…
We encourage you to take advantage of all that Sisterhood has to offer. There is something for everyone! Feel free to sign up for the many committees and volunteer opportunities. Your ideas and suggestions are welcome. You can email us at firstname.lastname@example.org. Please visit our facebook page, Or Chadash Sisterhood – Sephardic Temple Tifereth Israel, to keep up with our events.
Or Chadash membership and events are open to all Jewish women, members and non-members alike, so feel free to spread the word and invite your sisters and friends to join. Be an inspiration to your children, friends and community. We look forward to the energy and enthusiasm our new members bring. Join us and be fulfilled on many different levels.

Don’t forget, the future belongs to us.
