Women of Sinai

The Women of Sinai (WOS) was established to provide friendship, spirituality, and bonding to women of Temple Sinai.  This organization gives Reform Jewish women voice, opportunity, and purpose by encouraging unique, creative contributions of each member in service to our temple and the community at large.

 We are committed to:

  • Providing learning opportunities and intellectual stimulation, as well as Judaic experiences for our members.
  • Providing a variety of events and programs, in addition to our monthly luncheons, that are open to community members, as well as temple and WOS members.
  • Communicating with WOS members, as well as temple members, regarding dissemination of up-to-date relevant information and accomplishments.

 

Following are the Programs, Events and Luncheons scheduled:
