TEMPLE SHALOM SISTERHOOD
Come Rock With Us! Together We Can Move Mountains!
Our Sisterhood is proud to be an affiliate of Women of Reform Judaism (WRJ), Southwest District. The WRJ celebrated its CENTENNIAL year in 2013!The WRJ provides fantastic resources for programming, membership, budgets, a women's Torah commentary, support for Youth, Education, and Special Projects and much, much, more. From its beginning, the WRJ has been vocal and successful in fighting for women's right to vote, building a dormitory for rabinnical students at the original HUC Cincinnati campus, AND...the creation of NFTY!
WRJ Roll of Honor
Our Sisterhood Rocks Again! We achieved the Roll of Honor from WRJ (Women of Reform Judaism) for our contributions to the YES Fund in the year 2016-2017. The YES fund is the WRJ Youth, Education, and Special Projects program. It provides scholarships for rabbinical and cantorial students, funding for URJ camps, founded the North American Federation of Temple Youth (NFTY), and advances WRJ's mission of strengthening Reform Judaism in North America, in Israel, and around the world.
Let's get on the honor roll again next year! Come to the YES Fund tea February 25th, 2018, co-chaired with Temple Emanu-El and Adat Chavarim. Details to come.
Sisterhood will provide complimentary restroom baskets during the High Holidays.
We are collecting donations to stock these baskets for Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur. Please provide travel size: kleenex, bandaids, hand lotion, hair spray, mouthwash, dental floss, tampons, sewing kit, or other feminine items you believe would be helpful.
