Organized in 1965, the Women of Temple Israel (formerly known as Temple Israel Sisterhood) now includes more than 100 members. The Women of Temple Israel promotes friendship among its members as well as supporting the highest ideals of Judaism and furthering the goals of Temple Israel.
We are a diverse group of women, from working professionals to stay-at-home moms, ranging in age from 20s to 80s. We are single, single parents, married, married with children, divorced and widowed. Please Click here to fill out the Women of Temple Israel Membership Form.
The Women of Temple Israel sponsors various religious, social and educational activities, including at least two general membership meetings each year. One of their special projects is the Judaica Shop, which provides our members and the community with many different Jewish religious materials and artifacts. They also organize the weekly Oneg Shabbat, the Congregational Passover second night Seder and many other activities of service to the congregation.
We are an auxiliary of Temple Israel whose purposes are: to support the goals of the Temple; to foster and further the highest ideals of Judaism; to promote fellowship among our members; to build better human relations and understanding in the community; to provide religious, educational, and social activities to our members and to the Congregation.
We plan fundraisers and activities which support the financial needs of the Temple: We run the Judaica Shop, providing Jewish holiday and religious gifts to our congregants and to the community. We participate in the Jewish Festival sponsored by Federation. We have special fundraising events.
ALL NET PROCEEDS FROM OUR FUNDRAISERS GO INTO THE TEMPLE’S OPERATING FUND.
We organize and pay for weekly Onegs not sponsored by a family or individual. We plan the annual Chanukah “Menorathon” and Yom Kippur “Break the Fast”, and events which promote membership.
