Women of Temple Judea

"Together We Make a Difference"
What is Women of Temple Judea (WTJ)?
WTJ is the women’s group within Temple Judea, and we are part of the national organization Women of Reform Judaism. Our group is comprised of women of every age and at every stage of life. As a diverse group within our congregation, there is a place and program for everyone.  In the past year, we had  an all-time high of 195 women join the group!

What You Get When You Join WTJ
When you join,  you join a community of women – and YOU create community. You gain new friendships and experiences while also offering an array of opportunities and services for Temple Judea and our surrounding community. We strive to get to know each other, have fun together, make new friends, but also share our good fortune with those less fortunate.

We strive to:
*Build the WTJ  Community - Each year we do fun activities during which we get to know each other. These include:
WTJ  Book Club
Mah Jong Club
Annual Member Welcome Party
Special events - past examples include going in groups to the Jewish Film Festival, Cooking lessons, and
taking a historic tour of Coconut Grove. 

*Lead Community Service Opportunities  -   We do an annual JAFCO Chanukah Gift Drive,  continue  our partnership with Toussaint L‘Ouverture Elementary via a school supply drive, Career Day and special Thanksgiving food gift cards,  support Casa Valentina by providing monthly dinners, food and cleaning supplies for the residents, and participate in the “Rise Against Hunger” Mitzvah Day project.

*Provide Temple Judea Program Grants - WTJ supports temple programs such as the High Holy Days Restyled Services, NFTY Scholarships, B’nai Mitzvah gifts, Margaux Preschool special projects and Temple Judea professional staff development.

*Hold Fundraisers – Each year we hold events to help WTJ raise funds. These include: The Honey from the Heart Project and the High Holy Day Greeting Card, the annual (very popular) WTJ Progressive Dinner. .

Coordinate the Synogogue WTJ Giftshop – We keep the shop replete with fun, useful, and beautiful items for all your Judaica and holiday needs. Customized requests for special events can be accommodated.
