Women of Temple Shalom
WTS Membership Drive
The Women of Temple Shalom is part of the global connection of the Women of Reform Judaism (WRJ).
Our deeds are a collaborative effort of dedicated individuals within the Temple Shalom community, providing financial, spiritual, educational, and emotional resources. Our guiding principle is to be cognizant of women’s issues and perspectives; to build bridges within the temple, the surrounding community, Israel, and all Jews; and to always be mindful that Torah is our guide.
While Women of Temple Shalom is a no-dues organization, we welcome and are grateful for donations that directly support the WTS programs and activities.
Membership Dues: $40/Adults or $20/Seniors

We support several community activities throughout the year, including:
- Backpacks and healthy snacks to Backpack Buddies
- School supplies to needy school children
- Hundreds of dollars to the Cancer Society through our annual participation in the Making Strides Walk
- Break fast food for Yom Kippur Ne’ilah
- Apples for Sukkot
- Torah scrolls and flags for Simchat Torah
- Gelt and dreidels to our religious school students for Chanukah
Within Temple Shalom, we:
- Gift Bibles for the B’nai Mitzvah students.
- Sponsor a Miracle of Oil Drive for Chanukah. Last year, more than 25 gallons of ‘liquid gold’ were delivered to the local food bank.
- Bake hamentashen to give to our students and local senior centers.
- Lead a food drive at the Purim Shpiel, “Pasta for Purim,” where boxes of mac and cheese are used as groggers and then donated to families in need.
We support our connection to Judaism:
- Chavurah – a group of Jewish women who assemble for the purpose of discussion and learning.
- Book Club – coming together to discuss the book, its Jewish connection and our individual interpretations.
- Sunshine Club – we support all of our members through the good and the troubled times in our lives.
- Gathering – we meet regularly through out the year and share meals, play games, listen to speakers and enjoy celebrations.
If any of our work speaks to you, come get involved with the Women of Temple Shalom. Contribute to these important efforts, and strengthen your temple, community and world. Without you, we’re one woman short.
