As the “Sisterhood” of a Reform congregation, Isaiah Women functions under the auspices of Women of Reform Judaism (WRJ) and is part of its Pacific District. For each member, IW contributes $18 to support the national organization plus $2.10 to the Pacific District. WRJ’s important work strengthens the voice of women worldwide and empowers them to create caring communities, nurture congregations, cultivate spirituality and personal growth, and promote progressive Jewish values.
In addition to our support for WRJ, IW supports many local service organizations and projects. Several years ago, IW established a Temple Isaiah Teen Educational Trip Scholarship Fund. Our goal is to make an annual contribution to this fund to enable teens needing financial support to participate in some of the Temple educational travel programs. Each year, our Board of Directors allocates our Social Action funds to various organizations or projects.
We have exciting events planned and look forward to your participation as we strive to create new programming for women of all ages to come together in friendship and learning.
