INSPIRING WOMEN OF THE CONGREGATION is an annual event that features women in our congregational family with diverse talents, unique stories to tell, and insights to share. Formerly called Prominent Women of the Congregation, our previous programs have showcased women in a particular field describing their professional journeys and the role of Judaism in their lives. We have heard from women in law, in the arts, in medicine, in education, women who are Jews by choice, women from far-off lands, our original female clergy, women entrepreneurs, and women in nontraditional occupations. In recent years, our panelists have addressed issues of current concern from their professional vantage point. Recent programs have included women working for social justice, women in the political process, working in support of Israel, empowering other women, and in all phases of publishing.
SISTERHOOD encourages community and friendship among the women of Congregation Rodeph Sholom in support of women’s issues and Reform Jewish values. Through a variety of spiritual, educational, social, cultural, and philanthropic activities, women of different ages, backgrounds, and interests strengthen their ties to each other, deepen their connection to the Rodeph Sholom community and extend their influence on the world beyond.
