An exciting year for Women’s League is underway! Our programs cater to a broad spectrum of our Temple’s membership. Women's League strives to broaden our members' knowledge of Judaism and tradition, as well as current issues affecting our community, while bringing us closer to one another. A Women's League Dinner and Shabbat is one of our annual events. Women's League maintains a complete gift shop with display cases full of beautiful and interesting items of Judaica. A complimentary membership is offered to women during their first year as members of Temple Beth Ahm Yisrael.
Thank you to all of the women who have been working hard to strengthen our organization, and thus help support TBAY. We’ve been holding many activities, which have been drawing a large attendance, including a “Welcome Back Brunch”, our Annual Paid-up Membership Dinner with wine and hors d’oeuvres in our Temple’s beautiful Sukkah, and a Hanukkah Party with latkes, vodka cocktails, and a grab bag game. Our social year culminates with our Donor Event in the Spring. Women’s League members can earn Donor credit to attend the event in many ways (for example: by obtaining ads for our Ad Calendar).
Every year, Women’s League members participate in many successful fundraisers including the ongoing sale of supermarket and other gift cards (available at all of our functions and in the Temple office), our annual Ad Calendar, New Year’s Greetings, and the TBAY Clothing Drive. Women’s League has continued in the tradition of supporting many Temple functions, including underwriting the TBAY Passover Seder, providing funds to retain our Congregational Nursing Program, providing Oneg Shabbat, and contributing substantial donations towards the upgrading of our synagogue’s security system. We fund a scholarship program for TBAY’s religious school; award a scholarship to a TBAY graduating high school senior; and are helping other students fund summer programs to Israel.
Women’s League is planning much more for 2019-2020 and would love for you to get involved. Let us know if you would like to participate in any of our upcoming programs or fundraising endeavors. To join Women’s League, please send $40 dues payment to Women’s League of TBAY and mail it to the Temple at 60 Temple Drive, Springfield, NJ 07081.
Thank you for your interest in Women’s League!
Looking forward to hearing from you soon,
