Be A Part of the Magic and Deliciousness of Hamentschen and Volunteer this year!

Hamentashen: Fun to eat, even more fun to make!

Volunteer to bake or sell.

Our Sisterhood is about to embark on the annual hamentashen baking and sale.  They have customers from all over Portland who buy these tasty treats and in turn Sisterhood funds many wonderful aspects of our community.  Our hardworking bakers are about to start a multi-week process that will eventually make about 30,000 hamentashen!  You have never seen anything like it (unless you have previously helped).  It’s great fun, and a great community builder.

If you would like to volunteer to help make these hamentashen we welcome all helpers age 14 and over. It’s a lot of fun! There are many jobs available, and you don’t have to be a baker or kitchen proficient to be part of our team. We will teach you what needs to be done. We even supply aprons and head coverings. If you prefer, you are welcome to bring your own clean apron from home.

Baking begins on February 16 (all baking days are listed on the order form). Use the above form to sign up for a volunteer shift (goes lives Monday, January 13) or contact Charlotte Tevet to volunteer: (503) 319-7825 or

About the Sisterhood Hamentaschen Baking

Hamantaschen 68

In the 1950s, Sisterhood began its most famous fundraiser, the baking of hamentaschen, and in its first year sold 100 dozen. In the warm, noisy kitchen, experienced cooks teach the novices how to roll dough, shape balls of fruit, knip, egg wash, bake, and pack.  Last year the Sisterhood made over 2,500 dozen with the help of over 100 volunteers.  They are shipped all over the world.

Volunteers Needed

The Sisterhood is looking for volunteers to help out.  They need all the help they can get.  Men and teens are also encouraged to join in.  There are jobs for everyone even if you’d prefer not to be in the kitchen or can only volunteer for a short time.

Don’t forget to place your order!  Pick up one dozen or more of these delicious and famous Hamentaschen!
