WOMEN OF REFORM JUDAISM
WRJ-Temple Israel Sisterhood is the organization of women from our congregation and the greater Jewish Memphis area who come together in friendship to benefit Temple Israel, the Jewish community and beyond. Sisterhood is the collective presence, voice and strength of women within the structure of our Congregation. It provides the setting in which its members meet and work together to foster and further the highest ideals of Judasim.
WRJ provides you with the opportunity to put your talents, time and gifts to work for many causes, both large and small. It will enable you to enrich your life as well as that of our congregation and community. In order to meet these goaals, Sisterhood needs the support of all women from our Congregation, including those with little or no time to spare.
