We are the Sisters of Shalom.
Working together for Sisterhood, Spirituality, and Social Good.

The mission of Temple Shalom Sisterhood is to inspire the women of Temple Shalom Dallas to build enduring relationships with Torah, Reform Judaism, and each other through education, service, and support to the Temple and broader community.  

Sisterhood is a great place to cultivate new friendships while enjoying study, worship, advocacy, and social events. Your participation provides assistance to our Temple, our youth, and the community.

Temple Shalom Sisterhood receives WRJ Honor Roll Certificate

Our Sisterhood was honored to receive a WRJ Honor Roll Certificate. This certificate represents and recognizes outstanding achievement in promoting sisterhood, spirituality, and social good while strengthening the Reform Movement through financial support of the YES (Youth, Education, and Special Projects) Fund. Thank you to Robyn Carafiol for our very successful YES Fund Casserole sale and to all of our Sisterhood members for their contributions to the WRJ YES Fund. Without your support WRJ would not be able to invest in women and girls around the globe so they can be innovative leaders and changemakers. 


Shalom Bayit (Social Action Programming)

Jewish law includes within it a blueprint for a just and ethical society, where everyone gives to one another, helps one another, and protects one another.

Voter Clip Art Free

Sisterhood’s Social Action Committee, Shalom Bayit, has adopted Voter’s Rights as this year’s platform. Now is the time you can advocate for protecting all people’s essential right to vote.  Join us for the wonderful programming available on this very timely and important topic.  Details can be found at templeshalomdallas.org/sisterhood-upcoming-events

We are proud to announce that Temple Shalom is part of the new Reproductive Health and Rights Campaign of the WRJ/RAC!  “Domestic violence is a reproductive justice issue because those who experience intimate partner violence often experience reproductive control, birth control sabotage, and/or sexual assault, all of which can lead to unintended pregnancy”. (from JWI)

To get involved in Shalom Bayit or for more information, contact Robyn Carafiol at RCarafiol@robinsonclay.com  

We Care


Sisterhood’s We Care Committee’s purpose is to provide friendship, support, and strength to our sisters through all of life’s special moments.  We Care  volunteers bring cheer to our sisters who are ill or in need of help in short-term situations. We are collectively here for all of our members and happy to have new faces on the We Care Committee.   Please contact Ilene Zidow at ilene.zidow@gmail.com, or Laney Arndt at laney229@gmail.com if there is something that we can do to assist you or if you would like to become a member of the We Care Committee.   Should you have a special need during this challenging time, please let us know and we will respond as quickly as possible.
