CLICK HERE TO JOIN WOMEN OF TEMPLE SHOLOM
The Women of Temple Sholom Community Group (WTS) is a dynamic group of women who support the mission and values of our congregation by connecting those of all ages through spirituality, social action, worship, study, friendship, and fun. Least you think, though, that this is your Mother’s Mahjong-playing Sisterhood. 
The Women of Temple Sholom’s steering committee work hard to create events that are educational, spiritual, and fun. Not only that, nearly every event that WTS sponsors promotes a collection drive for a local organization, or raises funds to donate to various important causes in Chicago and across the world. These are some recurring events and worthy causes that WTS provides and supports: 
  • Sponsoring a Reunification Ride has become an annual gift that WTS provides to mother’s at Logan County Correctional facility and provides transportation for their children to visit them while incarcerated. 
  • WTS, in concert with Rabbi Shoshanah Conover, hosts a brunch annually that connects issues confronting today’s woman to teachings of Torah. Some of these issues include the #metoo movement and women’s reproductive rights. 
  • Every March, WTS hosts a Friday Night Service where speakers, lay leaders, and members of the group shape the service. 
  • In June, the women of WTS gather together for the annual WTS Dinner, an evening that of course includes dinner and drinks, but also brings in leaders in their respective field that are tied to a contemporary issue to educate and lead discussion. 
The Women of Temple Sholom are members of the worldwide Women of Reform Judaism (WRJ) that works to empower and strengthen the voice of all women.
