  • Congregation Or Chadash Sisterhood inspires and empowers diverse women to learn and draw strength from each other by building community, developing leadership, cultivating personal and spiritual growth, advocating for and promoting progressive Jewish values.


  • Following the congregational mandate of Torah/Study, Avodah/Worship and Gemilut Chasadim/Acts of Loving Kindness, we will be the thread which weaves together many of the aspects of congregational life with community life.


  • Fostering dialog among new and old members of the congregation by working with the Membership Committee to welcome new members, introduce them to existing members, and help them to integrate into our congregation and the Tucson Jewish community.


  • Offering our support and service to congregational programs that sustain and benefit the congregation and the community.
