Women of Shalom is the collective presence, voice, and strength of the women of Congregation Shalom. It is the organization of the women of our congregation who meet and work together for the benefit of our temple, our community, and Reform Judaism worldwide. We come together for social activities and for study, as well as for the growth, so that each may find an opportunity to fulfill her potential as a person and as a Jewish woman. You can contact Women of Shalom by email at [email protected].
Here, Women of Shalom means:
being part of our temple, our community, and of Women of Reform Judaism. (Through WRJ, we are joining together with 75,000 Reform Jewish women who make their voices heard and their actions felt);
- meeting and working with other women on programs that benefit our congregation and our community;
- friendship, study, advocacy, and social activities; and
- opportunities for personal growth and fulfillment in a Jewish atmosphere.
