        We are part of Women of Reform Judaism, celebrating its 100th anniversary in   2013 - 100 Years Strong: Inspired by the Past, Committed to the Future.



        We provide a collective identity for the women of our synagogue and an outlet for the creative energy, talent and leadership potential of individual women.

        “We women [are] like the letters of the Torah, each one individually different, yet creating meaning in our unity…”*
