Or Shalom Women’s League Sisterhood is affiliated with the International Women’s League for Conservative Judaism. Their mandate is to support and strengthen Jewish values and practices throughout life’s stages. This is accomplished by providing Jewish education, promoting Jewish social contact and friendship and involving Jewish women in a group concerned about community, national issues and world affairs.
The Or Shalom Women’s League publishes the London Jewish Directory, runs the Judaica Gift Shop at Or Shalom, presents all Bar/Bat Mitzvah candidates with a book, organizes High Holiday flowers, donates funds for synagogue maintenance and beautification projects and leads the Ezra Project. This project provides meals for congregants when needed.
Or Shalom Women’s League runs study group sessions and offers an annual speaker’s series dealing with current local and national issues. In 2022 the series focused on racism and “Building Bridges through Knowledge and Understanding” with four different communities in London On.
This vibrant, active group welcomes all women to enjoy a friendly, varied and satisfying opportunity to be part of the congregation and the extended family of Conservative Jewish women.
