THE MEANING BEHIND WSS:

Did you hear our big news?! We, the Temple Sisterhood of Congregation Shaarai Shomayim is now Women of Shaarai Shomayim (WSS)!

The name change reflects a new, inclusive women's group where we will strengthen the power of women's voices, deepen a love for Judaism and support our congregation as well as the broader Lancaster community.

VOLUNTEER OPPORTUNITIES:

ROSH HASHANAH ONEG

 

The High Holidays will be here before you know it, which means that we have to start planning for the annual Rosh Hashanah Oneg. As always, we'll be needing bakers and for those who don't like to bake, financial contributions are always welcome to help fund the Oneg. We will also be needing help to set up.

PANCAKE CHEFS!

 

Join with us to cook up delicious pancakes on the morning of the start of Sh'arim. Meet friends, cook, and eat; a fantastic way to spend an early morning! Clean-up involves Bloody Marys and Mimosas!
