English term or phrase: a home or house of either matriarchs, crones, wise old women
I am looking to name a blog and eventually maybe an actual residence and after that a coop type business of senior women - the term crone fits but I don't know if there is a word or term similar in hebrew so I'm expanding that to matriarchs and the longer term elder wise woman or women or wise old woman or women. One term needs to be house, home or resident, abode the second would need to be coop or group - I would also like to know if there is a term in hebrew for sisterhood.

Home of the Crone........... House of the Crone..............

Sisterhood of the Matriarchs .................. Crafts of the Crone

Thanks in advance
