Chances are you don’t associate your local synagogue sisterhood with “the edge of town,” but as money, politics, academics and religious power increasingly intrigue us, the women who simply love their shul, and want only love back, have moved to the periphery.   Oh, sisterhoods are on the edge, all right, if not on the border of oblivion, or so it seems.   There are more than 700 synagogues within the orbit of the Orthodox Union, and only about a third have a sisterhood anymore.
