Women of Aliyah
Women of Aliyah supports the social, spiritual and educational needs of the women in our community. In addition to supporting Temple Aliyah, Women of Aliyah raises funds for the Torah Fund and camperships for our youth. Our Women of Aliyah is part of the Pacific Southwest Branch of Women’s League for Conservative Judaism, which is part of an international organization of some 200,000 women in over 800 Sisterhoods in the United States, Canada, Puerto Rico, Mexico, England and Israel. We are proud of the fact that Women of Aliyah are well represented on the board of directors of our Pacific Southwest Branch and the International organization.
Consisting of over 375 members, our common goals include connection to Jewish women of all generations, commitment to our synagogue and to our children, and contribution to the greater Jewish community.
Among the many activities sponsored by our Sisterhood:
- Frequent educational and social programs designed to enrich the community.
- Raising significant funds for the Torah Fund, the proceeds of which support the next generation of rabbis coming out of the Ziegler School of Rabbinic Studies, The Jewish Theological Seminary of America and the Schechter Institute of Jewish Studies.
- The granting of scholarships to our youth to attend Jewish summer camps and first time Israel programs, including Camp Alonim, Camp Ramah, USY on Wheels and USY in Israel.
- Temple Aliyah Judaica Shop, a unique and beautiful boutique, offering a place to purchase gift items for any simcha or special occasion.
Women of Aliyah meets on the second Tuesday of each month. Please join us and experience a truly enjoyable and rewarding part of Temple Aliyah.
