The Women of Barnert

WRJ LogoIn a nutshell, the Women of Barnert is about sharing, spirituality, service and friendship. The Women of Barnert Temple work to make our Temple life more beautiful, delicious and meaningful. Our contributions to the congregation and the community are numerous and significant. The Women of Barnert has many diverse programs throughout the year that raise funds to support Barnert Temple, as well as help charitable causes (tzedakah), and this year is no exception. We are planning another full year of activities for all ages and interests, including (but not limited to):

  • Fun game nights
  • Another spiritually uplifting Women of Barnert Shabbat
  • A moving Women's Seder
  • Joint social events with the Men's Club
  • Our fabulous Chanukah Boutique, where you can shop 'til you drop and fill all your gift and personal needs in one afternoon
  • Countless charitable activities to support our congregation and the broader community
