​​​Who We Are

The Women of Beth Shalom is a vital partner in helping our Congregation enrich the lives of our members and the surrounding community. The Women of Beth Shalom gives each of us the opportunity to combine our heritage of Jewish culture, values, and traditions with our need and desire for personal growth, purposeful action, and meaningful service. We promote learning and spirituality, while helping our members develop new friendships, share in mitzvot, and get involved in synagogue life.

​​What We Do

As women in our community, we strive to ensure that each member's experience is meaningful. We provide many ways for individuals to get involved, such as serving on one of our exciting and rewarding committees. This is a great way to make a real difference, while making new friends. Our wide variety of events are scheduled throughout the year to reach out to women with a great range of interests.
