Single Sisters’ Series: For Your Health


Single Sisters' House in Bethlehem, PA

You're invited to step into the Single Sisters’ House, the Lehigh Valley’s only historically rooted, bricks and mortar, women’s programming space. This year, the Single Sisters’ Series takes on the theme- “For Your Health,” highlighting different elements of health and safety and connecting to the progressive Moravian approach to healthcare and mutual aid.

Bethlehem is one of the first places
where women received an education in the country.

Today, as we open this space to the public, we invite you to continue this tradition with this series of programs and workshops that celebrate women's accomplishments while considering the obstacles faced by Lehigh Valley Women in the past, present, and future.

This series offers everything from artist workshops to expert-led discussions to self-defense sessions drawing inspiration from the experience and contributions of Moravian women in the 18th and 19th centuries and how their legacy has and will continue to influence women in the Lehigh Valley.

Explore the house, the role of the Single Sisters, and maybe even yourself!
