No matter your path or passion, Sisterhood awaits you. 

Sisters. Women of every age. Women who are dedicated to family, synagogue, and community.
Sisters. Women who make a difference - a difference at Wise Temple, a difference in Cincinnati, and a difference to the future of Reform Judaism.
Sisters. Women who embrace our faith, who act, who give.       

There is a place for you in Sisterhood. Maybe it’s social. Maybe it’s spiritual. Maybe it’s educational. Maybe it’s social action. There is a place
