Temple Women’s Association

The Temple Women’s Association (TWA) is composed of women who come together to further the religious, educational, civic, philanthropic cultural and social activities of our temple and for the growth of the individual as a Jewish woman. The TWA has succeeded in recent years in blending women of all ages into a cohesive and active Sisterhood.

TWA traces its history of community service, study, and social activities to 1897 and is an integral dimension of The Temple. TWA presents distinguished lecturers, holds an annual spiritual and educational retreat, sponsors educational series, and conducts other cultural, musical, and educational programs throughout the year.

We are affiliated with the national parent body, Women of Reform Judaism, which provides local, regional and national connections.

Additional TWA events sponsored throughout the year include an opening membership luncheon, at least one special evening program, a creative service, a spiritual retreat for women, as well as the Women’s Seder and the annual spring luncheon.
