Women of Temple Shalom (WOTS), our sisterhood organization, is a vital part of Temple Shalom. Our members are active women who seek a wide range of spiritual, social and educational community.
Our ongoing Tikkun Olam projects include Hanukkah Helpers and School Helpers with the Jewish Family & Career Services, and Merry Mitzvah at Maryhurst. The annual Hanukkah Dinner with Men’s Club is a Temple Shalom congregational highlight.
WOTS provides a variety of programming, including Sisterhood Shabbat, Havdalah, Torah Yoga at KI, and Study Sessions, as well as WOTS Book Club, Dinner and Fun, Mah Jongg, and outdoor activities. Hamantaschen baking marathons are sure to bring out the inner baker.
We are proud to be part of Women of Reform Judaism (WRJ), the international women’s organization of Reform and Progressive Judaism. As part of WRJ, we are affiliated with the Central District, which includes Kentucky, eastern Tennessee, Indiana, Ohio, Michigan and West Virginia. Meetings provide more opportunities to connect with women from many different congregations. We honored that our own Sheilah Abramson-Miles serves as Central District President.
I am honored to lead WOTS, an important and beloved part of Temple Shalom.
President, Women of Temple Shalom, 2017-19
